Chung-Han Lee, MD, PhD, discusses the efficacy of a phase 2 study of pembrolizumab and lenvatinib in patient with metastatic clear cell renal cell carcinoma who have progressed on an immune checkpoint inhibitor.
"The acceptance of our NDA filing marks yet another important milestone for AVEO, as we pursue our goal of providing RCC patients whose disease has relapsed or become refractory to multiple lines of therapy with a meaningful new treatment option."
Progression-free and overall survival in patients with previously untreated, advanced renal cell carcinoma continued to show improvements with the combination of pembrolizumab and axitinib versus sunitinib in the phase 3 KEYNOTE-426 trial.
An analysis of patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma revealed that systemic therapy with cabozantinib induced reliable responses for patients regardless of whether or not they had received prior immunotherapy, according to data that were presented as part of the 2020 American Society of Clinical Oncology Virtual Scientific Program.
"We believe the TIVO-3 data demonstrate a favorable risk/benefit profile for tivozanib in the growing population of patients who have relapsed or become refractory to multiple lines of therapy, including checkpoint inhibitors."
Yousef Zakharia, MD, discusses the next steps after the phase 1 trial of seleno-L-methionine in combination with axitinib as treatment of adult patients with previously treated or relapsed clear cell renal cell carcinoma.
