Dr. Jonasch on the Safety Profile of MK-6482 in Von Hippel-Lindau Disease–Associated RCC

Dr. Jonasch explains 86.9% of patients experienced primarily grade 1 or 2 anemia, which often improved without treatment; however, a few patients required exogenous EPO treatment. The second most common side effect was fatigue, which Dr. Jonasch suggests may not be a true side effect.
