Shilpa Gupta, MD, assistant professor, Hematology Oncology and Transplantation Division, University of Minnesota, discusses combining VEGF inhibitors with immunotherapy for patients with kidney cancer.

There is currently a trial focused on axitinib (Inlyta) with pembrolizumab (Keytruda) in the first-line setting, explains Gupta.

According to Gupta, since kidney cancer is a VEGF-driven disease, it makes sense to combine the different pathways.
