Toni K. Choueiri, MD, on Clear Cell RCC: Treatment With Belzutifan Plus Cabozantinib
2021 Genitourinary Cancers Symposium
Toni K. Choueiri, MD, of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, discuses a preliminary phase II analysis of the HIF-2a inhibitor belzutifan in combination with cabozantinib, which showed antitumor activity in previously treated patients with metastatic clear cell renal cell carcinoma (Abstract 272).
Elizabeth R. Plimack, MD, of Fox Chase Cancer Center, discusses key abstracts discussed at this year’s meeting on bladder cancer and offers her views on the latest trends and findings (Abstracts 391, 393, 434).
Thomas Powles, MD, PhD, of Cancer Research UK Barts Centre, discusses phase III results from the EV-301 trial, which showed that enfortumab vedotin is the first therapy to demonstrate a significant survival advantage over standard chemotherapy in patients with previously treated locally advanced or metastatic urothelial carcinoma (Abstract 393).
A spirited discussion ensued when we asked Christopher Sweeney, MBBS, of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and Thomas Powles, MD, PhD, of Cancer Research UK Barts Centre, to compare notes on how they treat bladder, prostate, and kidney cancers.
Felix Y. Feng, MD, of the University of California, San Francisco, discusses study findings showing that molecular determinants may help clinicians select patients with nonmetastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer who may derive the most benefit from apalutamide and other androgen-signaling inhibitors (Abstract 8).
Elizabeth R. Plimack, MD, of Fox Chase Cancer Center, discusses key abstracts discussed at this year’s meeting on renal cell carcinoma and offers her views on the latest trends and findings (Abstracts 269, 308, 270, 313).
