Abstract

Targeted therapy has become the mainstay in the treatment of renal cell carcinoma (RCC). That being said, it is difficult to predict which patients will respond to targeted therapy. A recent article published in The Lancet Oncology attempts to identify biomarkers in patients receiving pazopanib that may be helpful in the clinical management of renal cell carcinoma.
