Answer

Interferons have been largely replaced by single-agent molecular targeted therapy. Single-agent interferon therapy is generally no longer used. Currently, the only established role for these agents is the use of interferon alfa in combination with bevacizumab as first- or second-line therapy for metastatic renal cell carcinoma.
