Pegilodecakin for metastatic kidney cancer

Combinations of immunotherapy and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) inhibitors have been proven to effective at improving survival for people with advanced or metastatic renal cell carcinoma (RCC). However, the role of a cytokine called interleukin-10 (IL-10) has been shown to enhance immunotherapy-induced anti-cancer activity. In this phase 1 trial, the safety, tolerability and preliminary […]

Promising early studies with pegilodecakin plus immunotherapy in pretreated kidney cancer

A recent phase 1b clinical trial investigated the use of pegilodecakin in combination with anti-PD-1 monoclonal antibodies nivolumab or pembrolizumab. The combination showed a “favourable” response in patients with non-small cell lung cancer and kidney cancer. Pegilodecakin works by stimulating the survival, proliferation and “killing” potential of CD8+ T cells, which can recognise and destroy […]
