Robert G. Uzzo, MD, chair, Surgical Oncology, G. Willing "Wing" Pepper Chair in Cancer Research, senior vice president, Physician Services, president, Fox Chase Cancer Center Medical Group, Inc., professor of surgery, Temple University Health System, Fox Chase Cancer Center, discusses pressing unmet needs for patients with kidney cancer.

Biomarkers remain to be a pressing unmet need for patients with kidney cancer because without them it is difficult to stratify risks, explains Uzzo.

It is also important to be aware that there are trade-offs with kidney cancer management. Active surveillance may also begin to play a role in this treatment landscape, states Uzzo.
