The treatment of renal cell carcinoma has long been dominated by targeted treatments, including mTOR and angiogenesis inhibitors. However, the introduction of immune checkpoint inhibitors has diversified treatment options. The treatment landscape for renal cell carcinoma is rapidly moving toward combination combinatorial approaches, as witnessed by the approvals of Lenvima/Kisplyx (Eisai) plus Afinitor (Novartis) in 2016, Opdivo plus Yervoy (Bristol-Myers Squibb/Ono Pharmaceutical) in 2018, and Keytruda (Merck & Co.) plus Inlyta (Pfizer) in 2019. As combination regimens experience uptake in the larger and more commercially lucrative first-line advanced setting, drug developers should gain an understanding of the key drivers and obstacles to maximize uptake.
