Papillary renal cell carcinoma (pRCC) is the second most common histological type of renal cell carcinoma. The prognosis of local pRCC is better than that of ccRCC, but the situation has changed greatly after pRCC metastasis.
Emerging evidences have elucidated the crucial role of inflammation in carcinogenesis and tumor progression. In the recent years, many inflammatory biomarkers showed promising prognostic factors in renal cell carcinoma (RCC).
New therapies including oral anticancer agents (OAAs) have improved outcomes for patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC). However, little is known about the quality of end-of-life (EOL) care and systemic therapy use at EOL in patients receiving OAAs or with mRCC.
In patients with renal cell carcinoma (RCC) on cabozantinib, venous thromboembolism (VTE) management remains challenging due to limited safety data regarding direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) use in conjunction with cabozantinib.
To update the recommendations for the management of kidney cancers.
A systematic review of the literature was conducted from 2015 to 2022. The most relevant articles on the diagnosis, classification, surgical treatment, medical treatment and follow-up of kidney cancer were selected and incorporated into the recommendations.
Risk stratification of kidney cancer patients after nephrectomy may tailor surveillance intensity and selection for adjuvant therapy. Transcriptomic approaches are effective in predicting recurrence, but whether they add value to clinicopathologic models remains unclear.
Stereotactic ablative body radiotherapy (SABR) is a non-invasive treatment option for primary renal cell carcinoma, for which long-term data are awaited. The primary aim of this study was to report on long-term efficacy and safety of SABR for localised renal cell carcinoma.
Collecting duct carcinoma (CDC) is biologically more aggressive than clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC). We tested for differences in cancer specific mortality (CSM) rates according to CDC vs. ISUP (International Society of Urological Pathology) 4 ccRCC histological subtype.
Quality-of-life (QoL) metrics' importance in patient care has been increasingly recognized and has led oncological societies to issue clinical guidances on their collection. We aim to describe how current RCTs shaping the EAU RCC Guidelines collect QoL metrics and how long they report them.
To explore the feasibility of predicting the World Health Organization/International Society of Urological Pathology (WHO/ISUP) grade and progression-free survival (PFS) of clear cell renal cell cancer (ccRCC) using the radiomics features (RFs) based on the differential network feature selection (FS) method using the maximum-entropy probability model (MEPM).
