ECC 2015: METEOR trial showed cabozantinib improved survival in advanced kidney cancer

METEOR, a phase 3 clinical trial, compared cabozantinib with everolimus for the treatment of patients with advanced clear cell renal cell carcinoma. Analysis of the results in July 2015 showed that the estimated median progression-free survival time for patients in the trial, randomised to receive cabozantinib, was 7.4 months, whereas it was 3.8 months for those receiving everolimus. The objective response rate, assessed up to 17 months, was 21% for cabozantinib and 5% for everolimus.
