Primo N. Lara, MD, associate director for translational research, UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center, discusses epacadostat in renal cell carcinoma (RCC).

Preliminary results from the phase II ECHO-202/KEYNOTE-037 trial showed encouraging response rates and safety signals with epacadostat plus pembrolizumab (Keytruda) in patients with metastatic RCC.

Lara says the advantages of a drug like epacadostat is that it is oral, so it provides an extra level of convenience, should it become a standard of care in the future.
