This has raised the challenges in the management of adverse events (AEs) associated with the sorafenib, sunitinib, pazopanib, bevasizumab in combi nation with interferon alpha, temsirolimus, and everolimus, which are, targeted agents approved in RCC. Suggestions for monitoring and managing AEs have been pub lished, but there are few consensus recommendations.
