ASSURE: Adjuvant Sorafenib or Sunitinib for Unfavorable Renal Carcinoma
Principal Investigator (?)
Study Number
This randomized phase III trial is studying sunitinib malate to see how well it works
compared to sorafenib tosylate or placebo in treating patients with kidney cancer that has
been removed by surgery. Sunitinib malate and sorafenib tosylate may stop the growth of
tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth and by blocking blood
flow to the tumor. Giving sunitinib malate or sorafenib tosylate after surgery may kill any
tumor cells that remain after surgery. It is not yet known whether sunitinib malate is more
effective than sorafenib tosylate or placebo in treating kidney cancer.
