Dr Naomi Haas - University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, USA

Dr Haas speaks with ecancer at the 2018 ASCO Genitourinary Cancers Symposium about the latest research into adjuvant therapy for renal cell carcinoma. 

She highlights three recent trials of note;

The ASSURE trial

The ProtecT trial

The S-TRAC trial

She goes on to highlight the immune checkpoint inhibitor, PROSPER trial, looking at the use of perioperative nivolumab vs. observation in patients with localised renal cell carcinoma undergoing nephrectomy. 

Finally she discusses the recent FDA approval of sunitinib for adjuvant treatment for renal cell carcinoma. 

For more on the PROSPER trial watch the interview with Dr Lauren Harshman here.
