Building on the success of the PD-1 inhibitor Opdivo (Bristol-Myers Squibb / Ono Pharmaceutical) in the recurrent renal cell carcinoma setting, combination regimens, including Opdivo plus Yervoy, Keytruda (Merck & Co.) plus Inlyta (Pfizer), Bavencio (Merck KGaA / Pfizer) plus Inlyta, are revolutionizing the treatment of advanced disease. Angiogenesis inhibitors such as Sutent (Pfizer), Votrient (Novartis), and Cabometyx (Exelixis / Ipsen) remain a key feature of first-line treatment. The entry and increased uptake of Cabometyx and Opdivo in this setting is beginning to shift Inlyta and Lenvima / Kisplyx (Eisai) plus Afinitor (Novartis) to later lines. Furthermore, following Sutent’s approval for high-risk early-stage (stage I-III) patients, multiple immune checkpoint inhibitors are also anticipated to transition to the early-stage setting. The renal cell carcinoma market remains highly competitive and dynamic, but the developer of an efficacious therapy can expect to reap high commercial rewards.

Questions Answered:

  • How are the early-stage and advanced or metastatic drug-treatable renal cell carcinoma populations defined, and how will drug-treatment rates evolve over the forecast period?
  • What is the current treatment landscape for renal cell carcinoma, and what are interviewed experts’ insights on current treatment options? What clinical needs remain unfulfilled?
  • What is the future outlook for key combination regimens in renal cell carcinoma? How will these combination regimens be differentiated, and which look the most promising?
  • Which emerging therapies do we forecast to enter the renal cell carcinoma market? What uptake and sales are these therapies anticipated to secure ?
