About Renal Cell Carcinoma
Advanced RCC, or kidney cancer, is the ninth most commonly diagnosed cancer in men and women in the U.S. 1 Worldwide it is estimated that more than 250,000 people are diagnosed and more than 100,000 people die from the disease each year. 2 RCC accounts for more than 90 percent of all kidney cancers. 3 Currently available therapies provide less than one year of median PFS in treatment naïve patients and are associated with significant toxicities. 4 These toxicities not only lead to high rates of dose reductions and interruptions (potentially compromising efficacy), but also can impact a patient’s quality of daily living. 5About Tivozanib Tivozanib is a potent, selective, long half-life inhibitor of all three vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) receptors that is designed to optimize VEGF blockade while minimizing off-target toxicities. Tivozanib is an oral, once-daily, investigational tyrosine kinase inhibitor for which positive results from a Phase 3 clinical study in advanced renal cell carcinoma have been reported, and is being evaluated in other tumors. About TIVO-1 TIVO-1 is a global, randomized Phase 3 superiority clinical trial evaluating the efficacy and safety of investigational drug tivozanib compared to sorafenib in 517 patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma (RCC). TIVO-1 is the first superiority pivotal study in first-line advanced RCC that has demonstrated statistically significant and clinically meaningful PFS superiority versus an approved targeted agent (sorafenib) in advanced RCC. The TIVO-1 study has demonstrated that a potent, selective and long-half life inhibitor of all three VEGF receptors can result in superior efficacy and improved tolerability.
