Subset analysis of patients with sarcomatoid renal cell carcinoma (sRCC) included in the CheckMate 214 trial of ipilimumab-nivolumab versus sunitinib showed improved outcomes in sRCC with ipilimumab-nivolumab. The use of checkpoint inhibitor–based regimens in sRCC, for which therapeutic options were once limited, is further supported by additional clinical trials.
