Overview

This trial is active, not recruiting.

Condition ct2a n0nxm0 renal tumor
Treatment axitinib
Phase phase 2
Targets VEGF, PDGF
Sponsor Assistance Publique - Hôpitaux de Paris
Collaborator Pfizer
Start date February 2012
End date November 2015
Trial size 55 participants
Trial identifier NCT02597322, P110209

Summary

Axitinib (AXITINIB) is an oral, potent, and selective inhibitor of vascular endothelial growth factor receptors 1, 2, and 3 which has achieved objective response rate of 44.2% in phase II study in cytokine-refractory metastatic renal-cell cancer patients.

Pre-surgical treatment with Axitinib could allow a substantial proportion of patients with large organ confined tumors to benefit from NSS.

The Objective is to determine the efficacy of Axitinib administered prior to surgery in patients with large organ confined tumors not primarily suitable for NSS (cT2aNoNxM0) for shifting from a radical nephrectomy indication to a nephron sparing procedure.

Eligibility Criteria

Male or female participants at least 18 years old.

Inclusion Criteria: - Patients must sign IRB/EC-approved informed consent. - Age ≥ 18 - Histologically proven clear cell RCC (obtained by CT or US guided biopsy) - cT2a N0NxM0 Renal tumor according to 2009 TNM classification (tumor Ø> 7cm; ≤ 10 cm) - No evidence of preexisting uncontrolled hypertension as documented by 2 baseline blood pressure readings taken at least 1 hour apart. - Normal renal function (MDRD creatinin clearance ≥ 60 ml/min) - Patients must have adequate organ function defined as: Platelets ≥ 150 x 109/L, hemoglobin > 9 g/dl, absolute neutrophil count (ANC) >1.5 x 109/L; Bilirubin < 2 mg/dL, aspartate transaminase (AST) and alanine transaminase (ALT) ≤ 2.5 times the upper limit of normal; Total cholesterol ≤ 9.1 mmol/l and triglyceride level ≤ 4.5 mmol/l - Urinary protein <2+ by urine dipstick. - Patients with reproductive potential must use medically acceptable contraceptive method. - Beneficiary of a social coverage (except AME) Exclusion Criteria: - Patients with < 50 % clear cell histology - Evidence of locally advanced disease: cT stage≥T2b, N Stage≥1 or metastatic disease (M1) - Patients must not be pregnant or lactating. - Patients must not have uncompensated coronary artery disease or an history of myocardial infarction or severe or unstable angina within the past six months or severe diabetes mellitus with severe arterial peripheral disease or deep venous or arterial thrombosis or embolism with the past 3 months. Patients must not need curative anticoagulants. - Patients must not have any medical/systemic or psychiatric disorder incompatible with the study. - Patients must not have a history of significant gastric or small bowel resection, malabsorption syndrome, or other lack of integrity of the upper gastrointestinal tract that may compromise the absorption of Axitinib or an unavailability of the oral route.

Additional Information

Official title An Open-label, Non-randomized, Multicenter, Two Stage Designed Phase II Study of Axitinib for Downstaging Large Renal Tumors Not Primarily Suitable for Partial Nephrectomy (AXIPAN)
Principal investigator Jean Jacques Patard, MD, PhD
Description Radical nephrectomy (RN) is the current standard of care for large organ confined renal tumors. Experience and surgical technical improvements have allowed the feasibility of Nephron Sparing Surgery (NSS) in tumors larger than 4 cm and up to 7cm. Very limited data exist regarding the feasibility and safety of NSS in tumors larger than 7cm. It has been demonstrated that NSS compared to RN offers similar oncological outcome while better preserving renal function and thus improving overall survival. The purpose of this study is to test the possibility of offering patients with large organ confined renal tumors, candidates for radical nephrectomy according to current guidelines the benefit of partial nephrectomy thanks to axitinib neo-adjuvant treatment.
