Show Notes

Prof. Thomas Powles, a Medical Oncologist from Barts Cancer Centre in the UK and Prof. Georg Hutterer, a Urologist from the Medical University of Graz, Austria, discuss the role of VEGFR-TKIs in the treatment of advanced renal cell carcinoma (RCC) alone or in combination with immunotherapy.

In this podcast, by COR2ED Medical Education, the two experts discuss key trials (CHECKMATE 214, KEYNOTE 426, CHECKMATE 9ER and CLEAR) which have led to recent updates to the ESMO and EAU treatment guidelines for RCC. Combination treatment with either VEGFR targeted therapy plus a PD-1 or CTLA-4 inhibitor in the first-line setting is discussed as well as VEGFR-TKI monotherapy options at the time of disease progression.

They also focus on how to manage treatment toxicity whilst trying to optimise treatment outcomes and preserving patients’ quality of life as well as the use of biomarkers and risk stratification models.
