The overall objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of cabozantinib as 2nd line treatment in subjects with unresectable, locally advanced or metastatic RCC with a clear-cell component, who progressed after prior Checkpoint Inhibitors (CPI) therapy with ipilimumab and nivolumab in combination or CPI combined with Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF)-targeted therapy.

Condition Locally Advanced or Metastatic Renal Cell Carcinoma

All male participants must agree to refrain from donating sperm and unprotected sexual intercourse with female partners during the study and for 120 days after the last dose of study treatment
Subjects must be willing and able to comply with study requirements, remain at the investigational site for the required duration of each study visit and be willing to return to the investigational site for the follow up evaluation, as specified in the protocol
Subjects must be covered by social security or be the beneficiary of such a system (only applicable for French subjects)

local applicable guidelines) and low dose, low molecular weight heparin (LMWH)
