Phase II trial of bortezomib for patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma
Carcinoma, Renal Cell
The results of this trial suggest that bortezomib has an antitumor effect in individual patients with metastatic RCC. The small proportion of patients who achieved a partial response does not support routine use in metastatic RCC. Efforts to identify the molecular profile associated with clinical response or combination therapy with interferon alfa or other novel agents, may be considered.
