Dr Naomi Balzer-Haas talks to ecancertv at ASCO GU 2015 about the initial results from the phase III ASSURE trial. It appears that adjuvant sorafenib or sunitinib do not benefit patients with unfavourable locally advanced renal carcinoma, but these findings raise more questions.

Dr Voss talks to ecancertv at ASCO GU 2015 on part 1 of the DART Study, a phase II randomised trial using dalantercept plus axitinib versus placebo plus axitinib in advanced clear cell renal cell carcinoma. Results have shown that the combination of dalantercept and axitinib is well tolerated and demonstrated and associated with encouraging activity in patients with prior VEGF, mTOR, and immune therapies.

Dr Mark Beresford talks to ecancertv at ASCO GU 2015 reflecting on the initial results of the ASSURE trial where adjuvant treatment with sorafenib or sunitinib is used for localised renal carcinoma. Neither sorafenib nor sunitinib provide improved outcomes. Other trials such as SORCE which looks at sorafenib and ATLAS which looks at axitinib question the duration of treatment.
