This study will evaluate the efficacy, safety, and pharmacokinetics of tobemstomig (also known as RO7247669) in combination with axitinib alone or with tiragolumab (anti-TIGIT) and axitinib, as compared to pembrolizumab and axitinib in participants with previously untreated, unresectable locally advanced or metastatic clear-cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC).

Official Title

A Randomized Open Label Phase II Study of Immune Checkpoint Inhibitor Combinations With Axitinib in Patients With Previously Untreated Locally Advanced Unresectable or Metastatic Renal Cell Carcinoma


Renal Cell Carcinoma, Carcinoma, Pembrolizumab, Axitinib, Tobemstomig, Tiragolumab, Tobemstomig + Axitinib, Tobemstomig + Tiragolumab + Axitinib
