Official Title  ICMJEAn Open Label Study of the Effect of First Line Treatment With Avastin (Bevacizumab) in Combination With Low-dose Interferon on Progression-free Survival in Patients With Metastatic Clear Cell Renal Cell Carcinoma.
Brief Summary

This single arm study will assess progression free survival, tumor response and safety of Avastin in combination with interferon alfa-2a (IFN) as first line treatment in patients with metastatic clear cell renal cell carcinoma. Patients will receive Avastin (10mg/kg iv) every 2 weeks in combination with a low dose of interferon alfa-2a (3 MIU sc three times per week (t.i.w.). The anticipated time on study treatment is until disease progression, and the target sample size is 100-500 individuals.
