Trial Information

Arterial Spin Labeling Blood Flow Magnetic Resonance Imaging for the Evaluation of Response to Antiangiogenic and Targeted Therapies of Metastatic Renal Cell Carcinoma


- MRI's will be performed at specific time points during the participants treatment for
renal cell carcinoma with the drug sunitinib or pazopanib. These ASL MRI's will be
performed at baseline, 2 weeks upon initiation of therapy with sunitinib/pazopanib,
after cycle 2 and/or cycle 4 of therapy, and at the end of therapy.

- The MRI tests for all participants will be done at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical
Center.


Inclusion Criteria:



- Patients diagnosed with metastatic renal cell carcinoma and who will initiate
sunitinib or pazopanib

- Enrolled on protocol 06-105, "Collection of specimens and clinical data from patients
with renal cell carcinoma treated with targeted therapies," or receiving Pazopanib as
part of routine clinical care.

- Found to have tumors that are 2.5cm or greater as determined by CT imaging

- Candidate lesions for ASL MRI should be 2.5cm or greater. Order of preference of
lesion location will be as follows: abdominal lesions, bone lesions and chest lesions

Exclusion Criteria:

- Contraindication to MRI

Type of Study:

Interventional

Study Design:

Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Diagnostic

Outcome Measure:

To explore the association of baseline blood flow in renal cell carcinoma measured by ASL MRI and tumor response to treatment with sunitinib or pazopanib

Outcome Time Frame:

2 years

Safety Issue:

No
