Renal Cell Cancer
This trial will determine whether sunitinib malate given on a 4/2 schedule (4 weeks on treatment, 2 weeks off treatment cycle) is any better at delaying progression of renal cell cancer than sunitinib malate given on a continuous dosing schedule. Volunteers with advanced renal cell carcinoma who have had no prior therapy for advanced disease in the last 12 months, or prior surgery or radiation therapy within the past four weeks, may be eligible.
The research sites are located across the United States.
