Front-line management patterns in the prospective metastatic renal cell cancer (MaRCC) registry.

Conference Paper

617 Background: Over the past decade, seven agents were approved for metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC) leading to a rapidly evolving clinical landscape. Clinical trials addressing treatment efficacy, sequencing, and other questions may continue to impact management decisions. Furthermore, our prior retrospective experience indicates a significant proportion of pts may not receive systemic therapy in the first year after diagnosis with metastatic disease. This analysis describes contemporary patterns of care in the first 109 real world pts enrolled in a multicenter, prospective, observational registry. Methods: MaRCC Registry will enroll 500 pts from up to 60 US academic (ACAD) and community (COMM) sites with ~2 years of recruitment and ≥ 3 years of follow-up. Key inclusion criteria are age ≥ 18 years and diagnosis of mRCC with no prior systemic therapy (STx) for mRCC at study entry. Pts currently not on STx but who are being observed are permitted. Key endpoints include descriptive characteristics of treatments (e.g. treatment agents, sequence, duration, reasons for therapy choice and discontinuation), treatment effectiveness (e.g. overall response rate, progression free survival, overall survival), quality of life (PROs), medication adherence, and health resource utilization. Results: At data cutoff, 105 pts have been accrued with known STx status; median age 64 (Q1-3 range, 56-70); 66% male; 75% ACAD; 87% clear cell histology; and 31% stage IV at diagnosis. Initial management strategies are shown in the table. The initial management decision after accrual was to defer systemic therapy (Def STx) in 40% (N=44). In ACAD and COMM sites, Def STx percentages were 38% and 48% respectively. Baseline demographics and clinical characteristics were not notably different between Def STx pts and those treated with STx. Conclusions: In our prospective registry, we have identified a large percentage of pts who initially received Def STx. In the context of contemporary pts undergoing investigational and standard of care STx, we will describe the management and outcomes of the Def STx population. [Table: see text]
