1 doctor agrees
In brief: Yes
It is a drug that targets a defect in kidney cancer cells.
It is give iv. The goal of this drug is to slow down the growth of cancer cells and to shink the tumor and extend life and function. I have used it in some patients with good results and reasonable side effects. It is not a cure.
