Staghorn, struvite or coral calculus are the ones that completely or partially occupies the renal pelvis and branches to the renal calices. The presence of renal calculi of any kind in the urinary tracts is related to the appearing of malign tumor in the kidneys, especially in the absence or failed treatment.
We aimed to evaluate the prognostic role of programmed-death receptor ligand (PD-L1) in a multinational cohort of patients with localized renal cell carcinoma (RCC).
Formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded blocks of 1017 patients from the Latin American Renal Cancer Group were analyzed.
microRNAs (miRNAs) are small noncoding RNAs that regulate gene expression by mRNA cleavage or translational repression. The miR-200 family is involved in the regulation of various tumor biologic processes including apoptosis, proliferation, invasion, and metastasis.
A 60-year-old female, who presented with abdominal discomfort, was noted to have an enhancing left renal mass, with central necrosis on a CT scan. She underwent radical nephrectomy and biopsy revealed clear cell renal cell carcinoma, Fuhrman grade 4.
Numerous patients with clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) experience drug resistance after immunotherapy. Regulatory T (Treg) cells may work as a suppressor for anti-tumor immune response.
We performed bioinformatics analysis to better understand the role of Treg cells in ccRCC.
Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) accounts for most malignant renal tumors and is considered the most lethal of all urologic cancers. For follow-up of patients with treated or untreated RCC and those with neoplasms suspected to represent RCC, radiologic imaging is the most useful component of surveillance, as most relapses and cases of disease progression are identified when patients are asymptomatic.
The aim of this study is to analyse the of expression levels of microRNA-200 family members in patients with metastatic clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC). Analysis of microRNA expression was performed on 23 paired DNA samples extracted from kidney tumour tissue and the surrounding normal renal parenchyma.
stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) use has increased overtime for the management of metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC) patients, with a likely good control of irradiated lesions. We planned a retrospective multicenter Italian study, with the aim of investigating the outcome of treatment with SBRT for non-brain secondary lesions in mRCC patients.
Background Preclinical studies suggested synergistic anti-tumor activity when pairing mTOR inhibitors with histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitors. We completed a phase I, dose-finding trial for the mTOR inhibitor everolimus combined with the HDAC inhibitor panobinostat in advanced clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) patients.
Partial nephrectomy has been persuaded as a widely accepted surgical procedure for T1a (≤ 4 cm) renal tumors. However, when treating T1b (4-7 cm) renal cell carcinoma (RCC), the "optimal" method of surgery is still debatable.
