This is a study to determine the clinical benefit (how well the drug works), safety and tolerability of combining varlilumab and atezolizumab. Phase l of the study will enroll patients with a number of tumor types; Phase ll will enroll only patients with renal cell carcinoma (RCC).
Many tumor cells, in contrast to normal cells, have been shown to require the amino acid glutamine to produce energy for growth and survival. To exploit the dependence of tumors on glutamine, CB-839, a potent and selective inhibitor of the first enzyme in glutamine utilization, glutaminase, will be tested in this Phase 1 study in patients with solid tumors.
A Study of Atezolizumab in Combination With Bevacizumab Versus Sunitinib in Participants With Untreated Advanced Renal Cell Carcinoma
This randomized, open-label study is designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of atezolizumab (anti-programmed death ligand 1 [PD-L1] antibody) plus bevacizumab versus sunitinib in participants with inoperable, locally advanced, or metastatic renal cell carcinoma (RCC) who have not received prior systemic active or experimental therapy, either in the adjuvant or metastatic setting.
