Introduction: Renal cancer ranks 10th in the mortality structure of the Russian Federation. The introduction of checkpoint inhibitors has changed the paradigm of treatment of patients with malignant neoplasms.

Method: Data from clinical trials have shown good progression-free median and median overall survival. Each cancer center has been accumulating its own experience in treating patients with renal cell cancer by applying modern target drugs and immunotherapy.

Result: In routine clinical practice, oncologists do not get the results that have been demonstrated in clinical trials when evaluating the effectiveness of the therapy.

Conclusion: In this single-center clinical study, we discuss the results of using nivolumab as mono-therapy and the combination of nivolumab with ipilimumab in metastatic renal parenchyma cancer patients.
