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:

- Karnofski <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

Exclusion Criteria:

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

2. Previous radiotherapy in the last 2 weeks

3. Chronic treatment with corticoids or immunosuppressive agents except substitutive
opotherap.. A washout period of at least 8 days must be respected before the patient

4. Patients with brain metastases untreated or uncontrolled by prior treatment. The

of the excipients

8. Severe or uncontrolled medical pathology:

before randomization, severe rhythm disorder,

- Uncontrolled diabetes with glycaemia> 1.5X ULN.

- Active or uncontrolled infection.

- cirrhosis or chronic active hepatitis,

- severe alteration in lung function (> 50% decrease in FEV or vital capacity)

9. Other cancer within the past 3 years, with the exception of basal cell carcinoma and
carcinoma in situ of the cervix

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.
