Study Design

Allocation randomized
Endpoint classification safety/efficacy study
Intervention model parallel assignment
Masking double blind (subject, caregiver, investigator)
Primary purpose treatment
Part 1: Dose escalation. Enzastaurin (Cohort 1): Cycle 1, Day 1 loading dose 250 milligram (mg) administered by mouth (po), twice a day (BID), followed by 125 mg, po, BID on Days 2-42 of 6 week cycle. Enzastaurin (Cohort 2) Cycle 1, Day 1 loading dose 375 mg administered po three times a day (TID), followed by 250 mg, po, BID continuously until disease progression, unacceptable toxicity, death, or discontinuation from the study for any other reason. Sunitinib (Cohort 1 and 2): 50 mg administered po, every day (QD), on Days 1-28, then rest (no drug given) on Days 29-42. Part 2: Randomized Double-Blind: Dosing for Part 2 will be determined by outcome of Part 1. Phase 2 was not activated per recommendation of safety review committee. Enzastaurin: Cycle 1, Day 1 loading dose 375 mg administered po, TID, followed by Phase 1 dose BID on Days 2-42 of 6 week cycle. Sunitinib: 50 mg administered po, QD, on Days 1-28, then rest Days 29-42.

Eligibility Criteria

Male or female participants at least 18 years old.

Inclusion Criteria: - Participants with metastatic Renal Cell Carcinoma (RCC) who have not received prior treatment with systemic (adjuvant or neoadjuvant) therapy for RCC (including targeted therapy such as tyrosine kinase inhibitors or bevacizumab, immunotherapy, chemotherapy, hormonal, or investigational therapy) - Histologically confirmed RCC with metastases with a component of clear (conventional) cell histology - Evidence of unidimensional measurable disease, measured by computed tomography (CT) scan or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) - Primary tumor has been surgically removed by nephrectomy or nephron-sparing surgery - Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status score of 0 or 1 - Participants must sign an informed consent document Exclusion Criteria: - Have received prior treatment with sunitinib or enzastaurin - Have received treatment within the last 30 days with a drug that has not received regulatory approval for any indication at the time of study entry - Have had any of the following within 12 months prior to study drug administration: - myocardial infarction, - severe/unstable angina, - coronary/peripheral artery bypass graft, - symptomatic congestive heart failure (CHF), - cerebrovascular accident, - transient ischemic attack, or - pulmonary embolism - Note: Ongoing treatment with therapeutic doses of Coumadin® (warfarin) or a derivative of Coumadin or phenprocoumon is not allowed, but prophylactic, low-dose Coumadin (≤ 2 mg daily) for deep vein thrombosis is allowed. In such cases, prothrombin time/international normalization ratio (PT/INR) should be very closely monitored as clinically indicated - Ongoing cardiac arrhythmias >New York Health Association Class II, atrial fibrillation of any grade, or prolongation of the QTc interval to >450 millisecond (msec) for males or >470 msec for females. - Have uncontrolled hypertension [>150/100 millimeter of mercury (mm/Hg) despite optimal medical therapy], or history of poor compliance with antihypertensive treatment - Require concomitant use of potent Cytochrome P450 3A4 (CYP3A4) inducer, for example, rifampicin or potent CYP3A inhibitors, such as ketoconazole. - Significant surgery or radiation therapy <4 weeks of starting study treatment. Prior palliative radiotherapy to metastatic lesion(s) is/are permitted, provided there is at least 1 measurable lesion that has not been irradiated - Participants who are pregnant or breast feeding
