Laurence Albiges, MD, PhD, on Renal Cell Carcinoma: Results From the NIVOREN GETUG-AFU 26 Study on Nivolumab
2019 Genitourinary Cancers Symposium
Laurence Albiges, MD, PhD, of Gustave Roussy, discusses findings on the safety and efficacy of nivolumab used in a “real world” prospective study on metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC). This research was conducted after nivolumab was approved for the treatment of mRCC following failure of one or two tyrosine kinase inhibitors (Abstract 542).
Thomas Powles, MD, PhD, of Queen Mary University of London, discusses phase III study findings on ramucirumab plus docetaxel vs placebo plus docetaxel in patients with advanced platinum-refractory urothelial carcinoma (Abstract 353).
Brian I. Rini, MD, of the Cleveland Clinic Taussig Cancer Institute, discusses phase III findings on a comparison of tivozanib and sorafenib in patients with refractory advanced renal cell carcinoma (Abstract 541).
Brian I. Rini, MD, of the Cleveland Clinic Taussig Cancer Institute, discusses current models used to estimate the risk of recurrence as well as genomic data that could help pinpoint individual tumor biology.
Jason A. Efstathiou, MD, DPhil, of Massachusetts General Hospital, discusses the debate over treating muscle-invasive bladder cancer with radical cystectomy vs trimodality therapy.
Brian I. Rini, MD, of the Cleveland Clinic Taussig Cancer Institute, and Thomas Powles, MD, PhD, of Queen Mary University of London, discuss their study findings on pembrolizumab plus axitinib vs sunitinib as first-line therapy for locally advanced or metastatic renal cell carcinoma (Abstract 543).
