2. Known human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) or other major immunodeficiency;
3. Immunosuppressive agents within 3 weeks of study entry, except for low dose corticosteroids when given for disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, or adrenal insufficiency. Topical or inhaled corticosteroids are permitted;

5. Patients with untreated CNS metastases with clinical symptoms or who have received treatment for CNS metastases within 2 months of study entry. Patients with treated CNS metastases, who are neurologically stable and off of corticosteroids for more than 2 months prior to study entry are eligible to enter the study;
6. Active infection or serious intercurrent illness, except asymptomatic bacteriuria;
7. Presence of unstable angina, recent myocardial infarction (within the previous 6 months), or use of ongoing maintenance therapy for life-threatening ventricular arrhythmia;
8. Macroscopic hematuria;
9. Prior therapy with mTOR inhibitors;
10. Known hypersensitivity to everolimus or other rapamycins (sirolimus/temsirolimus) or to its excipients;
11. Pregnant or nursing women, or women who were of childbearing potential and who were not utilizing an effective contraceptive method. A woman of childbearing potential is defined as a female who is biologically capable of becoming pregnant. Men with partners of childbearing potential not using an effective method of contraception. (Use of effective contraceptives must continue for 3 months after the last dose of everolimus);
12. Presence of any significant central nervous system or psychiatric disorder(s) that would hamper the patient's compliance;
13. Uncontrolled diabetes as defined by fasting serum glucose > 2 ULN, severely impaired lung function;
14. Cirrhosis/chronic active hepatitis/chronic persistent hepatitis, history of HCV infection (for hepatitis screening indications see section 3.3);
15. Drug or alcohol abuse;
16. Any other major illness that, in the investigator's judgment, substantially increased the risk associated with the subject's participation in the study.

- InterventionsPatients with mRCC will be treated with low-dose oral cyclophosphamide (8 different dose levels and schedules) in combination with fixed dose (10 mg) everolimus.

Dose levels of oral cyclophosphamide during the phase I part of the study are as follows:
0. No cyclophosphamide;
1. 50 mg cyclo; o.d., week on, week off;
2. 50 mg cyclo; o.d., continuous;
3. 50 mg cyclo; bid, week on, week off;
4. 50 mg cyclo; bid, continuous;
5. 100 mg cyclo; bid, week on, week off;
6. 100 mg cyclo; bid, continuous;
7. 150 mg cyclo; bid, week on, week off;
8. 150 mg cyclo; bid, continuous.

Patients will be enrolled in cohorts of 5 per dose level. The first 5 patients enrolled will be assigned to dose level 0. If there are <= 1 dose-limiting toxicities (DLTs) experienced by the first 5 patients in a cohort during the first 28 days after the first study treatment, further patients will be entered in the next dose level. At the final dose level recommended for the phase II study a minimum of 10 patients will be treated.
- Primary outcomePhase I:
1. Assessment of the recommended dosing and schedule for metronomic cyclophosphamide when administered in combination with fixed dose (10 mg) oral everolimus in patients with mRCC with respect to the selective induction of CD4+CD25+ regulatory T cell depletion;
2. Assessment of safety and tolerability for the combination of metronomic cyclophosphamide and fixed dose oral everolimus in patients with mRCC.

Phase II:
1. To investigate the proportion of patients with mRCC receiving everolimus and metronomic cyclophosphamide that is alive and progression-free at 4 months;
2. Assessment of safety and tolerability for the combination of metronomic cyclophosphamide and fixed dose oral everolimus in patients with mRCC.
- Secondary outcomePhase I and II study:
1. To assess the response rate, time to progression, and overall survival of the combination of metronomic cyclophosphamide and fixed dose oral everolimus in patients with mRCC;
2. Assessment of the immunological effects of combining metronomic cyclophosphamide with everolimus;
3. Assessment of the effect of the combination of metronomic cyclophosphamide and everolimus on selected angiogenesis parameters;
4. To assess whether intrapatient changes in thrombocyte numbers correlate with response rate and/or time to progression in patients using the combination of metronomic cyclophosphamide and fixed dose oral everolimus;
5. To asess the effects of the combination of metronomic cyclophosphamide and everolimus on tumor-infiltrating leukocytes, including CD4+CD25+FOXP3+ regulatory T cells;
6. To assess the effects of cyclophosphamide administration on the pharmacokinetics of everolimus.
- TimepointsPrimary outcomes: 28 days up to 2 years;
Secondary outcomes: 2 years.

- Brief summaryIn the present phase 1-2 study we aim to determine whether depletion of Tregs using metronomic cyclophosphamide can enhance the antitumor efficacy of everolimus in patients with mRCC not amenable to or progressive after a VEGF-receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitor containing treatment regimen. In the phase 1 part of the study we will determine the optimal CD4+CD25+ regulatory T cell-depleting dose and schedule of metronomic oral cyclophosphamide when given in combination with a fixed dose (10 mg daily) of everolimus. In the phase 2 part of the study we will subsequently evaluate whether the number of patients who are cancer progression free at 4 months can be increased from 50% to 70% by adding metronomic cyclophosphamide (in the dose and schedule determined in the phase 1 part) to everolimus. In addition to efficacy, we will evaluate treatment toxicity to determine whether this combination strategy is feasible and safe.
