My father in law has Stage 4 kidney cancer. He has had one kidney removed. He took Sutent for 15 months. It worked well for about 12 months. About 5 months ago he started in a clinical trial for Perifosine. We were told this morning that it wasn't working. The cancer is starting to spread throughout his spine and ribs. He has a new tumor that is between his spine and the lining of his lungs. The doctor wants to start him on Nexavar. I would greatly appreciate any information from anyone that has taken this drug for kidney cancer. What kind of side effects, and any results? Thank you.
