Immunotherapy and tyrosine kinase inhibitors in first-line treatment of metastatic renal cell carcinoma-Which strategy when?

[Immunotherapy and tyrosine kinase inhibitors in first-line treatment of metastatic renal cell carcinoma-Which strategy when?] Urologe A. 2020 Oct 07;: Authors: Mickisch G, Peters I, Grüllich C, Mudra T, Doehn C Abstract Immunotherapies with checkpoint inhibitors have led to a paradigm shift in metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC) as they established a new standard in first-line treatment. In addition to the established monotherapy with tyrosine kinase inhibitors, the spectrum of first-line options has now become wider. Based on data from studies and current guideline recommendations, this article discusses possible factors for individual strategies in first-line treatment of mRCC. For this decision, the leading criterion is the patient's risk score. In addition, the efficacy and tolerability of the substances, tumor burden, patient age and preferences as well as considerations about sequence treatment can support the decision. Real-world data for the new combination treatment, biomarkers for personalized medicine as well as studies on optimal sequence treatment for mRCC are needed.

Abstract As one of the 10 most common cancers in men, the incidence of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) has been increasing in recent years. Clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) is the most common pathological type of RCC, counting for 80%-90% of cases. Immunotherapy is becoming increasingly important in the treatment of advanced RCC. Tumor mutation burden (TMB) is a potent marker for predicting the response to immune checkpoint blockade (ICB) treatment. Here, we analyzed somatic mutation data for ccRCC from The Cancer Genome Atlas datasets. We found that the frequently mutated gene SYNE1 is associated with higher TM...

Expression of carbonic-anhydrase IX (CAIX) in clear cell renal cell carcinoma (RCC) makes it an attractive vaccine target. We developed a fusion-gene construct, granulocyte-macrophage (GM) colony-stimulating factor+CAIX, delivered by an adenoviral vector (Ad) into autologous dendritic cells (DCs) in this phase 1 study. The injected immature DCs were expected to stimulate an antigen-specific immune response against CAIX expressing RCC. Three dose-escalation cohorts (5, 15, and 50×106 cells/administration) were injected intradermally q2wk×3 doses based on a 3+3 design. The primary objective was the safety ...

MA Abstract Due to novel therapies, the prognosis of patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC) has improved. A median overall survival of more than two years is a realistic goal. Immunotherapy combinations with checkpoint inhibitors or checkpoint inhibitors and the tyrosine kinase inhibitor axitinib are new first-line options.Sunitinib, pazopanib, tivozanib and the combination of bevacizumab + interferon alpha are approved for first-line therapy regardless of the progression risk score. The use of both the combination of nivolumab + ipilimumab and cabozantinib is restricted to intermediate and ...

Authors: Shi J, Wang K, Xiong Z, Yuan C, Wang C, Cao Q, Yu H, Meng X, Xie K, Cheng Z, Yang H, Chen K, Zhang X Abstract Substantial research attention has been directed at exploring the mechanisms and treatment of renal cell carcinoma (RCC). Indeed, the association between inflammation and tumor phenotypes has been at the center of cancer research. Concomitant with research on the inflammation response and inflammatory molecules involved in RCC, new breakthroughs have emerged. A large body of knowledge now shows that treatments targeting inflammation and immunity in RCC provide substantial clinical benefits. Adequat...

Abstract The management of metastatic renal cell carcinoma (RCC) has evolved rapidly in recent years with several immunotherapy-based combinations of strategies approved as first-line therapies. Targeted strategies, including systemic antiangiogenesis agents and immune checkpoint blockade, form the basis of a therapeutic approach. With rising rates of recurrence after first-line treatment, it is increasingly important to not only adopt a personalized treatment plan with minimal adverse events but also develop predictive biomarkers for response. This review discusses currently available first-line and second-line t...

Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is composed of different subtypes with distinct molecular and histological tumor heterogeneity. Although the advent of various targeted therapies has improved the survival of patients with advanced RCC over the past 15 years (since 2006), few cases experienced complete response due to drug resistance. Recent studies have demonstrated that the outcomes following targeted therapies are potentially associated with intricate cross-links between immune responses and suppressors in the tumor microenvironment (TME). In addition, progress on drug research and development enhances our awareness and unders...

AbstractRecently, the effectiveness of anti-programmed death 1 (PD-1) antibody therapy in the treatment of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) has been established. Nevertheless, efficacy has been reported to be limited to only 10 –30% of patients. To develop more effective immunotherapy for RCC, we analyzed the immunological characteristics in RCC tissues by immunohistochemistry (IHC). We prepared a tissue microarray that consisted of tumor tissue sections (1 mm in diameter) from 83 RCC patients in Kanagawa Cancer Center between 2006 and 2015. IHC analysis was performed with antibodies specific to immune-related (C...
