Published: Thursday, Sep 21, 2017



Dominick Bosse, MD, fellow, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, discusses the rationale behind combining VEGF-targeted therapies and radium-223 dichloride (Xofigo) in metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC).

In a study of patients with mRCC with bone metastases, pazopanib (Votrient) or sorafenib (Nexavar) was combined with radium-223. Primary endpoints were safety, efficacy and bone turnover markers.
