Professor Tim Eisen from Addenbrooke's Oncology Centre, Cambridge, talks to ecancer TV with Dr Bernard Escudier from Institut Gustave Roussy, France, Dr Thomas Powles from St Bartholomew Hospital, London, and Dr Thomas Hutson from Baylor Sammons Cancer Center, USA. The experts outline results from the major studies reporting at ESMO 2012 in mRCC. 


The panel discuss the challenges and potential place of predictive biomarkers in mRCC in order to select the most appropriate drug and maximise drug use. Issues discussed include tissue collection and examination and the pro’s and cons of snip data, measurement of drug levels and the value of plasma biomarkers, such as IL-6.  Professor Escudier notes that predictive biomarkers are unlikely to be found for VEGF inhibitor due to the pathway.


This programme has been supported by an educational grant from GlaxoSmithKline.
