Phase II study of axitinib in patients with metastatic renal cell cancer unsuitable for nephrectomy.
Disease site: Kidney cancer, urological cancers
Treatment modality: Systemic therapy
A-PREDICT is a phase II, multicentre, open label, single arm trial investigating the efficacy of the oral vascular endothelial growth factor receptor inhibitor axitinib in the treatment of patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma unsuitable for nephrectomy.
99 patients will be recruited from approximately 20 UK sites over 4 years. All patients will receive axitinib and will be asked to donate tissue, blood and urine samples in order to identify markers predictive of treatment response. Participants will continue to take axitinib for as long as they are deriving benefit and will be followed up for life.
