Dr Choueiri speaks with ecancertv at ASCO 2016 about results from METEOR, a randomised phase III trial of cabozantinib for patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma (RCC), compared to everolimus.

Cabozantinib displayed a significant impact on previously treated patients, improving median overall survival from 16.5 months in the everolimus arm to 21.4 months for cabozantinib, and a 33% reduction in the rate of death

He also highlights the scale of the trial, from the international team gathering data to the impact on standard of care in RCC.
