Renal Cancer

Sarcoidosis-like reactions in metastatic renal cell carcinoma patients treated with immune-based combinations.

Aim: The incidence of drug-induced sarcoidosis-like reactions (DISR) in patients treated with immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) is rising. We determine the incidence and characteristics of DISR in a metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC) population.

Molecular analysis of primary and metastatic sites in patients with renal cell carcinoma.

BACKGROUNDMetastases are the hallmark of lethal cancer, though underlying mechanisms that drive metastatic spread to specific organs remain poorly understood. Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is known to have distinct sites of metastases, with lung, bone, liver, and lymph nodes being more common than brain, gastrointestinal tract, and endocrine glands.

Failure of the PD-1 Blocking Agent Pembrolizumab to Benefit a Patient with Renal Squamous Cell Cancer.

Renal squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is a neoplasm with an extremely rare occurrence compared to other renal malignancies. The classic presentation includes a palpable mass and flank pain; however, the presentation is seldom non-specific.

Sex-specific survival gene mutations are discovered as clinical predictors of clear cell renal cell carcinoma.

Although sex differences have been reported in patients with clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC), biological sex has not received clinical attention and genetic differences between sexes are poorly understood.

Influence of cryoablation versus operation on circulating lymphocyte subsets in patients with early-stage renal cell carcinoma.

Immune response is known to play an important role in local tumor control especially in renal cell carcinoma (RCC), which is considered highly immunogenic. For localized tumors, operative resection or local ablative procedures such as cryoablation are common therapeutical options.

Long-term consequences of positive surgical margin after partial nephrectomy for renal cell carcinoma: multi-institutional analysis.

The aim of the study was to determine the impact of positive surgical margins (PSM) after PN on very long-term recurrence in a contemporary cohort.

Patients who underwent PN for a localized renal tumour were included.

Long-term Renal Function Outcomes After Stereotactic Ablative Body Radiotherapy for Primary Renal Cell Carcinoma Including Patients with a Solitary Kidney: A Report from the International Radiosurgery Oncology Consortium of the Kidney.

Renal function preservation is particularly important following nonoperative treatment of localized renal cell carcinoma (RCC) since patients are often older with medical comorbidities. Our objective was to report long-term renal function outcomes after stereotactic ablative radiotherapy (SABR) including patients with a solitary kidney.

Comparison of the Efficacy and Safety of Nivolumab Plus Cabozantinib versus Sunitinib in the Treatment of Elderly Patients with Advanced Clear Cell Renal Cell Carcinoma.

Advanced clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) seriously affects the life and health of patients, but effective treatment for this disease is still lacking in clinic. This study investigated the efficacy of nivolumab plus cabozantinib versus sunitinib in the treatment of elderly patients with advanced ccRCC.

High-resolution and highly accelerated MRI T2 mapping as a tool to characterise renal tumour subtypes and grades.

Clinical imaging tools to probe aggressiveness of renal masses are lacking, and T2-weighted imaging as an integral part of magnetic resonance imaging protocol only provides qualitative information. We developed high-resolution and accelerated T2 mapping methods based on echo merging and using k-t undersampling and reduced flip angles (TEMPURA) and tested their potential to quantify differences between renal tumour subtypes and grades.

Prognostic Impact of the Administration of Antibiotics and Proton Pump Inhibitors in Immune Checkpoint Inhibitor Combination Therapy for Advanced Renal Cell Carcinoma.

The prognostic impact of the administration of antibiotics and proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) in immune checkpoint inhibitor (ICI) therapy for advanced cancer has recently been documented. However, how these drugs affect the outcomes of first-line ICI combination therapy for advanced renal cell carcinoma (RCC) remains unclear.
