Prof Stéphan Oudard - Hôpital Européen Georges Pompidou, Paris, France

Prof Oudard answers "no" to the question "Have additional treatment options had a tangible impact on the first-line treatment of mRCC?" - and tells us why.

Among other things, he argues that the efficacy of targeted agents has reached a plateau; the rapid increase in treatment options complicates the treatment landscape, because clinicians have to become familiar with the characteristics of each agent.
