Condition(s) targeted: Renal Cell Carcinoma

Intervention: BKM-120 Bevacizumab (Drug)

Phase: Phase 1

Status: Active, not recruiting

BKM-120 is a drug that may slow the growth of cancer cells. This drug has been used in laboratory experiments and information from those research studies suggests that this drug may help to slow the growth of renal cancer cells. In this research study, the investigators are testing the safety to BKM-120 at different dose levels. The investigators will also be studying how well tolerated BKM-120 is, and how effective BKM-120 can be in the treatment of kidney cancer.

Clinical Details

Official title: A Phase I Study of Bevacizumab and Escalation Doses of BKM-120 in Patients With Metastatic Renal Cell Carcinoma Who Failed Prior Systemic Therapies

Study design: Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome: To determine the maximum tolerated dose and dose limiting toxicities of the combination of BKM-120 and bevacizumab in metastatic renal cell carcinoma

Secondary outcome:

To determine additional toxicity and safety information from the combination of BKM-120 and bevacizumab in an expanded cohort of patients at the MTD

To determine the objective response proportion, progression-free survival, overall survival of the combination of BKM-120 and bevacizumab

To determine whether the BKM-120 and bevacizumab combination at the MTD is associated with concomitant changes in angiokines and PI3K pathway members in plasma and tumor samples

Detailed description: Subjects will receive an intravenous infusion of Avastin on Day 1 and Day 15 of each month (cycle). Subjects will take a daily oral dose of BKM-120 at the dose level assigned. Subjects will have a clinic visit weekly during Cycle 1 and then on Day 1 and Day 15 of each cycle for blood tests and physical exam.


Minimum age: 18 Years. Maximum age: N/A. Gender(s): Both.
