Renal Cell Carcinoma clinical trials at UCSF
11 in progress, 5 open to new patients

  • Basket Study of Entrectinib (RXDX-101) for the Treatment of Patients With Solid Tumors Harboring NTRK 1/2/3 (Trk A/B/C), ROS1, or ALK Gene Rearrangements (Fusions)

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This is an open-label, multicenter, global Phase 2 basket study of entrectinib (RXDX-101) for the treatment of patients with solid tumors that harbor an NTRK1/2/3, ROS1, or ALK gene fusion. Patients will be assigned to different baskets according to tumor type and gene fusion.

  • Cabozantinib-S-Malate in Treating Younger Patients With Recurrent, Refractory, or Newly Diagnosed Sarcomas, Wilms Tumor, or Other Rare Tumors

    open to eligible people ages 2–30

    This phase II trial studies how well cabozantinib-s-malate works in treating younger patients with sarcomas, Wilms tumor, or other rare tumors that have come back, do not respond to therapy, or are newly diagnosed. Cabozantinib-s-malate may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for tumor growth and tumor blood vessel growth.

  • Safety Study of MGD009 in B7-H3-expressing Tumors

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety of MGD009 when given to patients with B7-H3-expressing tumors. The study will also evaluate what is the highest dose of MGD009 that can be given safely. Assessments will be done to see how the drug acts in the body (pharmacokinetics (PK), pharmacodynamics (PD) and to evaluate potential anti-tumor activity of MGD009.

  • Study of FPA008 in Combination With Nivolumab in Patients With Selected Advanced Cancers

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This is a phase 1a/b single-arm, open-label study to evaluate safety, tolerability, PK, and clinical benefit of FPA008 in combination with nivolumab in patients with selected advanced cancers.

  • Study of the Glutaminase Inhibitor CB-839 in Solid Tumors

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Many tumor cells, in contrast to normal cells, have been shown to require the amino acid glutamine to produce energy for growth and survival. To exploit the dependence of tumors on glutamine, CB-839, a potent and selective inhibitor of the first enzyme in glutamine utilization, glutaminase, will be tested in this Phase 1 study in patients with solid tumors. This study is an open-label Phase 1 evaluation of CB-839 in patients with advanced solid tumors. The study will be conducted in 2 parts. Part 1 is a dose escalation study enrolling patients with locally-advanced, metastatic and/or refractory solid tumors to receive CB-839 capsules orally twice or three times daily. In Part 2, patients with each of the following diseases will be enrolled: A) Triple-Negative Breast Cancer, B) Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (adenocarcinoma), C) Renal Cell Cancer, D) Mesothelioma, E) Fumarate hydratase (FH)-deficient tumors, F) Succinate dehydrogenase (SDH)-deficient gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST), G) SDH-deficient non-GIST tumors, H) tumors harboring mutations in isocitrate dehydrogenase-1 (IDH1) or IDH2, and I) cMyc mutation tumors. As an extension of Parts 1 & 2, patients will be treated with CB-839 in combination with standard chemotherapy. Combination groups include: Pac-CB, CBE, CB-Erl, CBD, and CB-Cabo. Pac-CB: patients with locally-advanced or metastatic TNBC will be treated with paclitaxel and CB-839. CBE: patients with advanced clear cell RCC or papillary RCC will be treated with everolimus in combination with CB-839. CB-Erl: patients with advanced NSCLC lacking the T790M EGFR mutation will be treated with erlotinib and CB-839. CBD: patients with NSCLC harboring KRAS mutation will be treated with docetaxel and CB-839. CB-Cabo: patients with histologically confirmed diagnosis of locally-advanced, inoperable or metastatic RCC treated with cabozantinib in combination with CB-839. All patients will be assessed for safety, pharmacokinetics (plasma concentration of drug), pharmacodynamics (inhibition of glutaminase), biomarkers (biochemical markers that may predict responsiveness in later studies), and tumor response.

  • A Phase 1 Study of AM0010 in Patients With Advanced Solid Tumors

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This is a first-in-human, open-label, dose escalation study to evaluate the safety and tolerability of AM0010 in patients with advanced solid tumors, dosed daily subcutaneously as a monotherapy or in combination with chemotherapy or immunotherapy.

  • A Phase 2 Study of Atezolizumab (an Engineered Anti-Programmed Death-Ligand 1 [PD-L1] Antibody) as Monotherapy or in Combination With Bevacizumab (Avastin®) Compared to Sunitinib (Sutent®) in Participants With Untreated Advanced Renal Cell Carcinoma

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This multicenter, randomized, open-label study will evaluate the efficacy, safety and tolerability of atezolizumab as monotherapy or in combination with bevacizumab versus sunitinib in participants with histologically confirmed, previously untreated locally advanced or metastatic renal cell carcinoma who have not received prior systemic therapy either in the adjuvant or metastatic setting.

  • A Study to Evaluate Pazopanib as an Adjuvant Treatment for Localized Renal Cell Carcinoma (RCC)

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This randomized Phase III study is to evaluate whether pazopanib compared with placebo can prevent or delay recurrence of kidney cancer in patients with moderately high or high risk of developing recurrence after undergoing kidney cancer surgery

  • Everolimus With or Without Bevacizumab in Treating Patients With Advanced Kidney Cancer That Progressed After First-Line Therapy

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This randomized phase III trial studies giving everolimus together with bevacizumab to see how well it works compared to everolimus alone in treating patients with advanced kidney cancer that progressed after first-line therapy. Everolimus may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Monoclonal antibodies, such as bevacizumab, can interfere with tumor growth by blocking the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Everolimus and bevacizumab may also stop the growth of kidney cancer by blocking blood flow to the tumor. It is not yet known whether giving everolimus together with bevacizumab is better than everolimus alone in treating patients with advanced kidney cancer that has progressed after first-line therapy.
