SUMMARY

The management of recurrent or metastatic renal cell carcinoma is evolving fast, with new therapeutic options becoming available that may improve the outcome of patients. In this paper, recent evolutions are discussed and recommendations are made regarding the management of renal cell carcinoma in a Belgian context.

Almost 30% of patients with renal cell cancer present initially with advanced stage IV disease. In the past decade, the management of the metastatic renal cell cancer has been revolutionised by the knowledge of its molecular biology and development of targets against vascular endothelial growth factor and mammalian target of rapamycin pathways. In this paper we present recommendations based on a thorough review of available guidelines and data from the phase III randomised controlled trials that evaluated new agents in patients with advanced metastatic renal cancer.
