Combining nivolumab (Opdivo) with the angiogenesis inhibitor tivozanib (Fotivda) led to a high response rate and durable disease control in patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC), a preliminary open-label study showed.

Treatment-related adverse events (TRAEs) occurred frequently but were generally grade 1/2 in severity. The most common grade 3/4 TRAEs were hypertension (52%), laboratory abnormalities (32%, increased amylase, liver enzymes, alkaline phosphatase, gamma-glutamyl transferase, lipase), general disorders (12%, fatigue, systemic inflammatory response syndrome), and skin and related disorders (12%, palmar-plantar erythrodysesthesia, rash).
