What is it about?
In clinical practice, treatment timing of multi-targeted kinase inhibitors for the patients with radioiodine refractory differentiated thyroid cancer (RAIR-DTC) is one of the important clinical questions. In this post-hoc analysis of a phase III trial (SELECT), we explore whether baseline tumor burden may predict treatment outcomes and help considering introduction of lenvatinib for RAIR-DTC patients

Why is it important?
Higher baseline tumor burden predicted worse survival outcomes. although lenvatinib showed high response rate irrespective of tumor size. The cut-off level of 40 mm in sum of the diameters may help considering optimal timing of lenvatinib for RAIR-DTC patients.
