The mTOR inhibitor everolimus is currently approved for the treatment of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) and several Toll-like receptor 9 (TLR9) agonists, including immunomodulatory oligonucleotides (IMOs), have been tested for their therapeutic potential against advanced RCC. However, no clinical trials investigating the combination of mTOR inhibitors with TLR9 agonists in RCC patients have been performed to date. Our results may pave the way to translate this combinatorial approach to the clinical setting.

Abstract

The mTOR inhibitor everolimus is currently approved for the treatment of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) and several Toll-like receptor 9 (TLR9) agonists, including immunomodulatory oligonucleotides (IMOs), have been tested for their therapeutic potential against advanced RCC. However, no clinical trials investigating the combination of mTOR inhibitors with TLR9 agonists in RCC patients have been performed to date. Our results may pave the way to translate this combinatorial approach to the clinical setting.
