Abstract

Since the introduction of molecular targeted agents for the treatment of metastatic renal cell cancer (mRCC), several treatment outcomes, including those from our facilities, have been reported. However, the outcome of these drugs, classified by the metastatic organs, is not well known. The present study reported the treatment results of molecular‑targeted agents as classified by the metastatic organ at Osaka City University Graduate School of Medicine. A total of 180 consecutively treated patients who had received molecular targeted agents for metastatic renal cancer for 3 or more months were retrospectively analyzed. The overall survival was calculated and compared according to the Memorial Sloan‑Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) criteria, the number of metastatic organs, and metastatic lesions. The median overall survival of patients with mRCC treated by molecular targeted agents was 34 months. A significant difference in survival rate between groups was found according to the MSKCC criteria. Patients with single metastatic organ lived significantly longer compared with those with metastases in multiple organs. Patients with pancreatic metastasis had a good response to molecular targeted drugs. Pancreatic metastasis, the number of metastatic organs, and MSKCC criteria were independent risk factors for overall survival. Treatment of mRCC by molecularly targeted agents did not show any difference by metastatic organs except for the pancreas, although its efficacy depends on the number of metastatic organs and the MSKCC classification.
