Building on the success of Bristol-Myers Squibb / Ono Pharmaceutical’s PD-1 inhibitor, Opdivo, in the recurrent renal cell carcinoma (RCC) setting, combination regimens that include immune checkpoint inhibitors, including Opdivo plus Yervoy, look set to revolutionize the treatment of advanced disease. Angiogenesis inhibitors remain a key feature in RCC treatment with Exelixis /Ipsen’s Cabometyx joining Pfizer’s Sutent and Novartis’s Votrient as a first-line treatment. The entry and increased market share of Cabometyx and Opdivo in this setting is beginning to shift Pfizer’s Inlyta, the combination of Eisai’s Lenvima / Kisplyx with Novartis’s Afinitor, and single-agent mTOR inhibitors to later lines. Furthermore, following Sutent’s approval for high-risk early-stage (stage I-III) patients in the United States, multiple immune checkpoint inhibitors are also anticipated to transition into early-stage treatments. With the highly competitive RCC market becoming increasingly fragmented, the developer of an efficacious therapy could reap high commercial rewards.

Questions Answered:

  •  How large are the early-stage and advanced or metastatic drug-treatable populations? Will drug-treatment rates change over time?
  • How is RCC currently treated, and what are interviewed experts’ insights on current treatment options? What clinical needs remain unfulfilled?
  • Who are the key players developing combination therapies for RCC? How will these combination regimens be differentiated, and which look most promising?
  • Which emerging therapies do we forecast to enter the each RCC market segment? What uptake and sales are these therapies anticipated to secure?
