The research is said to have proven that using the OM-RCA-01, a monoclonal antibody developed most recently by OncoMax and capable of blocking the FGF receptor, can inhibit blood vessel growth in a kidney tumor.

“This elegant study has a great practical importance and answers the question how to overcome drug resistance in kidney cancer therapy,” emphasized Dr. Martin Spahn, the co-chairman of the Organizing Committee, during the award presentation.

EMUC is an annual meeting organized by three European medical societies , including the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO), the European Association of Urology (EAU), and the European Society for Radiotherapy and Oncology (ESTRO). Held on November, 15-17 in Marseille, France, this year’s event brought together experts, clinical researchers and other professionals in the treatment of kidney cancer, bladder cancer, and prostate cancer.
