  • A Phase II Study of Cyberknife Radiosurgery for Renal Cell Carcinoma
  • CyberKnife Based Radiosurgery is a way to deliver large doses of radiation very accurately to a tumor. The ability of this technology to minimize radiation dose to organs adjacent to the target tumor allows a high dose to be delivered to the tumor, thus potentially increasing the efficacy of radiation treatment. Currently, radiosurgery is commonly used for brain metastases, Stage I lung cancer, spine tumors, and localized prostate cancer. The purpose of this protocol is to evaluate the role of Radiosurgery for the treatment of clinically localized primary renal cell carcinoma.

  • Study of Mocetinostat in Patients With Urothelial Carcinoma Having Inactivating Alterations of Specific Genes
  • Mocetinostat is an orally administered histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitor. This study is a Phase 2 trial evaluating the efficacy of mocetinostat in patients that have advanced urothelial carcinoma that has specific changes in tumor genes. Patients must have previously received treatment with chemotherapy that included a "platinum-containing agent" such as cisplatin. The study will enroll in stages, with 15 patients in the first stage. More patients will be added to the study if enough patients having beneficial responses are observed. Mocetinostat will be administered using oral capsules three times each week (eg, Monday, Wednesday and Friday). The study is designed to evaluate whether the number of patients responding to treatment is substantially higher than would be expected with other available treatments.

  • Study of Hydroxychloroquine and Aldesleukin in Renal Cell Carcinoma Patients (RCC)
  • The main goal of the research study is to determine whether treating renal cell cancer patients with the study drug, hydroxychloroquine, along with IL-2, a standard treatment of kidney cancer that has spread to other parts of the body, can make the cancer easier to kill and eliminate. Another goal is to see how the study drug affects the body's immune cells which fight cancer cells.
