Has anybody had experience with the clinical trial for sunitinib and sorefaneb? What was your staging and what helped you decide to join or not join the study? The side effects from the drugs seem to be very severe and these are possibly very toxic to the body.
I was staged with pT3a tumor because my small kidney cancer tumor was not all that they found in my kidney. They found microscopic invasion in one place in the renal sinus fat. That upstaged my small <2cm tumor from pT1a to pT3a. They offered me to join the clinical trial of sunitinib and sorefaneb (sp?). I'm not sure if I should do it because of the side effects. They told me 70% chance (based upon my tumor size, stage, etc.) that I will be fine. I can't decide how to choose to join the study or not join the study.
