Study Of Avelumab In Combination

With Axitinib In Advanced Renal Cell

Cancer (JAVELIN Renal 100)

 Last updated: April 09, 2018
 STATUS: Ongoing, not recruiting (per ClinicalTrials.gov/NCT02493751)


is the trial for?

Patients with kidney cancer (Renal cell carcinoma, RCC) who currently meet the following criteria:


is the key question that this trial is attempting to answer?

This phase-I study aims to evaluate the safety and tolerability of a new immune therapy combination for patients with kidney cancer.

This study investigates the antibody targeting programmed death ligand 1 (anti PD-L1) avelumab in combination with axitinib in patients with inoperable, locally advanced, or metastatic renal cell carcinoma (RCC). Axitinib (InlytaTM) is a tyrosine kinase inhibitor, already approved for the treatment of advanced kidney cancer.

What does the study look like?

Avelumab will be administered in combination with axitinib in different doses. Patients will be assigned a specific dose and will stay on treatment until the disease progresses or unacceptable side effects occur.

  • avelumab is an antibody targeting programmed death ligand 1 (anti PD-L1)
  • axitinib (Inlyta™) is an oral, small-molecule, tyrosine kinase inhibitor, already approved for the treatment of metastatic renal cell carcinoma
The Phase I trial is expected to report the best dose and regimen for safety and efficacy.
