Summary

This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of dalteparin when given together with sunitinib malate in treating patients with kidney cancer that has spread to other parts of the body or cannot be removed by surgery. Anticoagulants, such as dalteparin, help prevent blood clots and have been shown to increase survival in patients with cancer. Anticoagulants may also prevent the formation of new blood vessels. Sunitinib malate may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth and by inhibiting new blood vessels and blocking blood flow to the tumor. Giving dalteparin together with sunitinib malate may starve tumors and kill more tumor cells.

Study Design

Endpoint classification safety/efficacy study
Intervention model single group assignment
Masking open label
Primary purpose treatment
Arm
(Experimental)
Patients receive sunitinib malate PO QD in weeks 1-4 and dalteparin SC QD in week 6 during course 1. In all subsequent courses, patients receive sunitinib malate PO QD in weeks 1-4 and dalteparin SC QD in weeks 1-6.

Additional Information

Official title Phase I Study of Dalteparin, A Low Molecular Weight Heparin (LMWH), in Combination With Sunitinib (SU11248), an Oral, Selective Multi-targeted Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitor, as First Line Treatment, in Patients With Metastatic Renal Cell Carcinoma
Principal investigator Saby George
Description PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To determine the recommended dosing for the combination of sunitinib (sunitinib malate) and dalteparin in patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma. II. To evaluate safety and tolerability for the combination of sunitinib and dalteparin in patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma. III. To determine early signs of clinical activity of the combination of sunitinib and dalteparin in patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma. SECONDARY OBJECTIVES: I. To determine the clinical response rate of sunitinib and dalteparin in patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma. II. To determine time-to-progression (TTP) and overall survival amongst patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma receiving sunitinib and dalteparin. III. To determine the effect of sunitinib alone and dalteparin alone compared to the combination of dalteparin plus sunitinib on plasma coagulation parameters. IV. To determine the effect of sunitinib alone and dalteparin alone compared to the combination of dalteparin plus sunitinib on angiogenesis parameters in blood. OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study of dalteparin. Patients receive sunitinib malate orally (PO) once daily (QD) in weeks 1-4 and dalteparin subcutaneously (SC) QD in week 6 during course 1. In all subsequent courses, patients receive sunitinib malate PO QD in weeks 1-4 and dalteparin SC QD in weeks 1-6. Courses repeat every 6 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up at 4 weeks and then every 3 months for 3 years.
