Eligibility Criteria

Age 18+ · All Participants · 10 Total Inclusion Criteria

Mark “Yes” if the following statements are true for you:
You have histologically or cytologically-proven advanced metastatic renal cell cancer (mRCC) or medullary thyroid cancer
You have chronic kidney disease (defined as an estimated glomerular filtration rate [eGFR] between 30 and 60 ml/min per 1.73 m^2).
You have been exposed to another AA-TKI or immunotherapy.
You have a 10% or greater risk of heart disease.
You have systolic blood pressure (SBP) ≥ 130 mmHg on two or more occasions in the 12 weeks prior to or during the first 4 weeks of treatment with an AA-TKI.
A patient with a single elevated SBP ≥ 130mmHg should be assessed for eligibility.
