A Study of X4P-001 in Patients with Advanced Renal Cell Carcinoma


About this study

The purpose of the study is to test different doses of X4P-001 given alone and in combination with axitinib in patients diagnosed with advanced renal cell carcinoma. The goals of the study are to determine the safety and tolerability of X4P-001, as well as the potential effect it may have on the body and the cancer tumor.

Participation eligibility

Participant eligibility includes age, gender, type and stage of disease, and previous treatments or health concerns. Guidelines differ from study to study, and identify who can or cannot participate.
