In top-line results from the phase III IMmotion151 trial, the combination of atezolizumab (Tecentriq) and bevacizumab (Avastin) was associated with a statistically significant reduction in the risk for death or progression in patients with PD-L1–positive advanced or metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC).
Two (2%) patients in the sunitinib arm and 1 (1%) patient assigned to the combination died due to an AE.
