Simon Chowdhury, PhD, MA, MBBS, MRCP, consultant medical oncologist specializing in urological cancer, Sarah Cannon Research Institute, United Kingdom, discusses sequencing of immunotherapy regimens for patients with renal cell carcinoma (RCC).

Biomarkers need to be developed to identify which patients will respond to certain treatments, explains Chowdhury. Having more biomarkers will decrease toxicities and costs for patients with RCC.

At the moment, combinations are going to be the way forward since the biomarker research is still in development, states Chowdhury. Clinicians are showing particular interest in immunotherapy in combination with VEGF inhibitors.
