Clinical data have supported the combination of subcutaneous r-interleukin-2 (rIL-2) and r-interferon-alpha (rIFN-alpha) as a promising combination for advanced renal cell carcinoma (RCC), with a reduced toxicity. We evaluated the activity and safety of this outpatient immunotherapy and report on the clinical results and the long-term survival analysis.(More)
