Pazopanib in Combination With

Interferon Alpha 2-A, in Patients With

Advanced Renal Cell Carcinoma

 Last updated: April 09, 2018
 STATUS: Study has been completed (per ClinicalTrials.gov/NCT01513187)


is the trial for?

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

  • age 18 years or older
  • clear cell histology
  • documented locally advanced or metastatic renal cell carcinoma
  • in phase I prior systemic treatments are allowed
  • in phase II no prior systemic treatment allowed


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

This phase I/II is a trial in two stages:

  • In the first stage it will determine the optimal dose of the combination of a tyrosine-kinase inhibitor and an immune-modulating agent in the treatment of patients with advanced renal carcinoma.
  • The second stage aims to clarify the efficacy of this combination measured in terms of response rate.


patients might want to participate?

This clinical trial offers patients an opportunity to access a new therapy that may be effective for kidney cancer. This trial will further support the research in kidney cancer and potentially help other patients with kidney cancer. The trial might or might not have benefit in your individual case.

What does the study look like?

The trial for RCC patients is being done in two parts:
1. Part 1A aims to find the right dosage for the following Phase II.
2. Part 2 will evaluate the efficacy of the drug combinations given in 6-week cycles.

There will be only one study arm (group) for RCC patients. Which means all patients will receive the new treatment.

They will be assigned pazopanib (VotrientTM) in combination with interferon alfa 2-A.

Phase I: pazopanib is given orally once per day in different doses plus interferon alpha 2-A is administered subcutaneously every other day for up to 3 doses per week – in different doses as well.

Phase II: Once the right dosage is determined in the phase I trial, patients will be given the new treatment until disease progression, unacceptable toxicity, non-compliance or withdrawal of consent by the patient.
