Summary of "Axitinib-Induced Hypothyroidism as a Predictor of Long-Term Survival in Patients with Metastatic Renal Cell Carcinoma."

The side effects of sunitinib, namely onset of hypertension and hypothyroidism, have been reported to be predictive biomarkers of treatment efficacy. However, the relationship between hypothyroidism and prolongation of survival in treatment with axitinib, a drug similar to sunitinib, has not yet been reported.
