Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy and T-Cell Infusion in Treating Patients With Metastatic Kidney Cancer

Trial ID or NCT#



not recruiting iconNOT RECRUITING


This pilot phase I trial studies the side effects and best way to give stereotactic body radiation therapy and T-cell infusion in treating patients with metastatic kidney cancer. Giving total body irradiation before a T-cell infusion stops the growth of cancer cells by stopping them from dividing or killing them. After treatment, stem cells are collected from the patient's blood and stored. Chemotherapy is given to prepare the bone marrow for the stem cell transplant. The stem cells are then returned to the patient to replace the blood-forming cells that were destroyed by the radiation therapy.

Official Title

Pilot Study of Local Tumor Irradiation With Autologous T-Cell Infusion for Metastatic Renal Cell Carcinoma

Eligibility Criteria

Ages Eligible for Study: Older than 18 Years
Sexes Eligible for Study: All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers: No
Inclusion Criteria:
  1. - Histologically confirmed carcinoma of the kidney (clear-cell predominance) - Have had at least 2 prior systemic treatments for renal cell carcinoma (RCC) - Have at least 1 extracranial metastasis that is amenable to radiation and at least 1 other site of disease that is measurable by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) - Subjects must provide written informed consent prior to performance of study-specific procedures or assessments, and must be willing to comply with treatment and follow up - Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status (PS) 0-2 - Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) >= 0.75 x 10^9/L - Absolute lymphocyte count (ALC) >= 0.5 X 10^9/L - Hemoglobin >= 8 g/dL - Platelets >= 50 X 10^9/L - Total bilirubin =< 3 X upper limit of normal (ULN) - Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and alanine aminotransferase (ALT) =< 3 X ULN - Serum creatinine =< 2.1 X ULN (or creatinine clearance of > 50 cc/min)
Exclusion Criteria:
  1. - History of other malignancies within 5 years prior to enrollment except for tumors with a negligible risk for metastasis or death, such as adequately controlled basal cell carcinoma, squamous-cell carcinoma of the skin, carcinoma in situ of the cervix, early-stage bladder cancer, or low-grade endometrial cancer - Malignancies that have undergone a putative surgical cure (i.e., localized prostate cancer post-prostatectomy) within 5 years prior to enrollment may be discussed with the lead primary investigator - History or clinical evidence of central nervous system (CNS) metastases or leptomeningeal carcinomatosis, except for individuals who have previously-treated CNS metastases, are asymptomatic, and have had no requirement for steroids or anti-seizure medication for more than 1 week within 6 months prior enrollment - Presence of uncontrolled infection - Evidence of active bleeding or bleeding diathesis; any medical condition requiring systemic anticoagulation (including anti-platelet agents) - Any serious and/or unstable pre-existing medical, psychiatric, or other condition that could interfere with subject's safety, provision of informed consent, or compliance to procedures - Pregnant and breastfeeding women are excluded; as well as women of child-bearing potential who are unwilling or unable to use an acceptable method of birth control (hormonal or barrier method of birth control; abstinence) to avoid pregnancy for the duration of the study
