Clinical outcome of patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma who interrupted VEGFR-TKI after achieving stable disease or better response.

December 7, 2017

The purpose of the this study is to evaluate the clinical outcome of VEGFR-TKIs interruption in patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC) after achieving stable disease (SD) or better response. 

A retrospective analysis of medical records and imaging studies was performed on all patients with mRCC treated with VEGFR-TKIs between January 2008 and July 2014 (n=505). Patients who achieved SD or better response under VEGFR-TKI and later discontinued VEGFR-TKIs for any reason with the exception of disease progression were included in the analysis. Outcomes analyzed were progression free survival (PFS) after VEGFR-TKIs discontinuation, patterns of disease progression, time to subsequent therapy (TST), response to VEGFR-TKI resumption, and time to treatment failure (TTF) after TKI resumption.
