Study Design
Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment
Name: Everolimus
Type: Drug
Overall Status
It is a an open label, multicentric, phase II study assessing the efficacy of everolimus (given per os) as a first line treatment in kidney cancer of bad prognosis.

92 patients will be included (anticipated). The treatment by everolimus will continue until progression, significant toxicity or withdraw of consent
Criteria for eligibility
Healthy Volunteers: No
Maximum Age: N/A
Minimum Age: 18 Years
Gender: Both
Criteria: Inclusion Criteria:

1. Metastatic kidney cancer, regardless of histology (except Bellini carcinomas), with measurable or evaluable disease

2. Age >= 18 years

3. With Karnofsky ≥ 60

4. Without prior treatment for metastatic cancer (chemotherapy, targeted therapy, or mTOR inhibitor)

5. Bad prognosis, defined as follows: at least three of the following six criteria of poor prognosis:

- Karnofsky <80

- LDH> 1.5 ULN

- hemoglobin
- corrected calcium> 2.5 mmol / l (10 mg / dl)

- Time frame between initial diagnostic and treatment <1 year

- More than one metastatic site

6. medullary function: neutrophils ≥ 1.5 x 109 / L, Platelets ≥ 100 x 109 / L, Hb> 8g/dL

7. Hepatic function: bilirubin: ≤ 1.5 x ULN, ALT and AST ≤ 2.5x ULN in the absence of hepatic metastasis ≤ 5x ULN if hepatic metastasis documented

8. Renal function: creatinine <1.5 x ULN

9. Life expectancy> 3 months,

10. Patient signed informed consent and agreeing to comply with the requirements of the trial

Exclusion Criteria:

1. Previous treatment with chemotherapy, targeted therapy, or mTOR inhibitor

10. Pregnant or lactating woman, and adults refusing an effective contraceptive method

11. Participation in another clinical trial with an investigational drug

12. Refusal of the patient to comply with the rules of the clinical trial

13. Person deprived of liberty or person under guardianship, inability to submit to medical treatment test for geographical, social or psychological reasons.
