Toni Choueiri, MD, Dana-Farber Cancer, Clinical Director, Lank Center for Genitourinary Oncology, Director, Kidney Cancer Center, Senior Physician, Dana Farber Cancer, discusses the potential for combination treatments in kidney cancer.

Instead of determining sequencing for cabozantinib and nivolumab, research should be focused on determining how to use the two agents in combination, says Choueiri.

While safety issues will have to be considered, the two drugs together have promise, Choueiri adds.

There is an early National Cancer Institute study going on combining cabozantinib and nivolumab. Safety results are expected soon.
