Ange, I hope I am alive sees this - she is in a current trial there (targeted therapies, not immuno) and probably has a good idea of what's going on there.

I do know that Sloan is overseeing a phase 3 trial of BMS-936558 versus everolimus for RCC patients whose cancers persist despite prior treatment with an anti-angiogenic therapy (bevacizumab, sunitinib, pazopanib, axitinib or tivozanib). Patients in the trial are randomly given BMS or everolimus, but not both. To be eligible you cannot have more than 3 prior treatments, or any prior treatment with an mTOR or PD1 inhibitor. But alas, I do not know anyone in this trial so I can't tell you more about it. I do not know enough about trials in general - I'm barely 10 weeks into my first experience in a trial - to offer advice. Can your onc open a door there? I'm on a sharp learning curve here. Good luck!
