An Open-label, Randomized, Multi-center, Phase III Study to Compare the Safety and Efficacy of Dovitinib Versus Sorafenib in Patients With Metastatic Renal Cell Carcinoma After Failure of Anti-angiogenic (VEGF-targeted and mTOR Inhibitor) Therapies

This study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of Dovitinib versus sorafenib in patients with metastatic renal cell cancer.

Stanford is not currently accepting new patients for this trial. You may want to check to see if other locations are recruiting.
