The first line therapy for intermediate/ high risk patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma according to therapeutic program B.10 Review article

Main Article Content

Abstract

The purpose of this article is to discuss the use of therapeutic options for the first-line systemic treatment of patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma under the B.10 drug program effective in Poland as of May 2022 – with a focus on intermediate and high-risk patient populations according to the IMDC. The specific situation created by reimbursement conditions with the exclusion of regimens combined with a tyrosine kinase inhibitor and immune checkpoint inhibitors along with the marginalisation of the use of an mTOR inhibitor necessitates a choice between two-drug immunotherapy or an antiangiogenic drug in monotherapy. In this context, choosing the right treatment in the context of specific clinical situations is a challenge.
