Toni K. Choueiri, MD, director, Lank Center for Genitourinary Oncology, director, Kidney Cancer Center, senior physician, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, discusses the findings of the CABOSUN trial for patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC).

The CABOSUN trial investigated cabozantinib (Cabometyx) versus sunitinib (Sutent) in patients with mRCC.
