COVID-19 studies are our top priority. For all other trials, there is a 4-week delay in processing a trial submitted/resubmitted to the ANZCTR and additional delays for updates of registered trials. We appreciate your patience.

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been endorsed by the ANZCTR. Before participating in a study, talk to your health care provider and refer to this information for consumers

Progression-Free Survival (PFS), Core Radiology Assessment - Progression-free survival (PFS) = time from randomization to first documentation of objective tumor progression or to death due to any cause, whichever occured first. If tumor progression data included more than 1 date, the first date was used. PFS = first event date minus the date of randomization + 1. On study included treatment plus 28-day follow-up periods.

Objective Response, Core Radiology Assessment - Objective response (OR) = the number of patients with confirmed complete response (CR) and confirmed partial response (PR) according to the Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) criteria, relative to all randomized patients. CR was defined as the disappearance of all target lesions. PR was defined as a = 30% decrease in the sum of the longest dimensions of the target lesions taking as a reference the baseline sum longest dimensions. Confirmed responses (CR or PR) = those that persisted on repeat imaging study >= 4 weeks after initial documentation of response.

Overall Survival (OS) - Overall survival (OS) = time from date of randomization to date of death due to any cause. For patients not expiring, survival time was censored at the last date they were known to be alive. Patients lacking data beyond randomization had their survival times censored at the date of randomization with a duration of 1 day.

FACT-Kidney Symptom Index-Disease Related Symptoms (FKSI-DRS) Subscale - FACT-Kidney Symptom Index-Disease Related Symptoms (FKSI-DRS) subscale of the FKSI to measure advanced kidney cancer disease related symptoms. Includes 9 items: lack of energy, pain, losing weight, bone pain, fatigue, short of breath, coughing, bothered by fevers, and hematuria. Each question was answered on a five-point Likert-type scale ranging from 0 (not at all) to 4 (very much). Score = the sum score of the item scores in the subscale; total range: 0 to 36. A score greater than 0 indicates the difference favored sunitinib.

EuroQoL Five Dimension (EQ-5D) Health State Index - EQ-5D Health State Index: a brief, self-administered generic health status instrument. Respondents were asked to describe their current health state on each of 5 dimensions (mobility, self-care, usual activities, pain/discomfort, and anxiety or depression) on a three-level scale (1=no problem, 2=some problem, and 3=extreme problem). A maximum score of 1 can be derived from these 5 dimensions by score conversion; range: -0.39 (worst health state)to 1.00 (best health state). This descriptive system classifies respondents into one of 243 possible distinct health states (EQ-5D descriptive system).
