Aberrant expression of transforming growth factor-β1 (TGF-β1) is associated with renal cell carcinoma (RCC) progression by inducing cancer metastasis. However, the downstream effector(s) in TGF-β signaling pathway is not fully characterized.
The body homeostasis is maintained mainly by the function of the kidneys, which regulate salt and water balance and excretion of metabolism waste products and xenobiotics. This important renal function is determined by the action of many transport systems, which are specifically expressed in the different parts of the nephron, the functional unit of the kidneys.
Biphasic squamoid alveolar papillary renal cell carcinoma (BSA-PRCC) is a recently studied lesion considered a morphologic variant of papillary renal cell carcinoma (RCC), more closely related to type 1.
Abnormal autophagic levels have been implicated in the pathogenesis of multiple cancers, however, its role in tumors is complex and has not yet been explored clearly. Hence, we aimed to explore the prognostic values of autophagy-related genes (ARGs) for kidney renal clear cell carcinoma (KIRC).
To evaluate postoperative recurrence patterns for high-risk non-metastatic renal cell carcinoma (RCC) and to identify prognostic factors associated with site-specific metastatic recurrence using a multi-institutional contemporary cohort.
Management of metastatic renal cell cancer (mRCC) has undergone a paradigm shift with immune-checkpoint inhibitors (ICI) in the first-line setting. However, direct comparative data are inadequate to inform treatment decisions.
Patients with small renal masses (SRM) can be exposed to overdiagnosis and overtreatment. As such, active surveillance (AS) is recommended by all Guidelines for selected patients. However, it remains underutilized.
Solid renal masses have unknown malignant potential with commonly utilized imaging. Biopsy can offer a diagnosis of cancer but has a high non-diagnostic rate and complications. Reported use of multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI) to diagnose aggressive histology (i.
To report managing renal tumors in patients at greater risk of repeated interventions (genetic predisposition, multifocal tumors) with thermoablative treatments (AT). A known significant challenge in these patients is the balance between nephron preservation and oncologic outcome.
Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) have emerged as important regulators of cancer progression. Abnormal sialylation leads to renal cell cancer (RCC) malignancy. However, the mechanism of lncRNA maternally expressed gene 3 (MEG3) mediates RCC progression by regulating ST3Gal1 transcription and EGFR sialylation is still unrevealed.
Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is a heterogeneous group of cancers that can occur sporadically or as a manifestation of various inherited syndromes. Hereditary leiomyomatosis and renal cell carcinoma (HLRCC) is one such inherited syndrome that predisposes patients to HLRCC-associated RCC.
Tumour associated trypsin inhibitor (TATI) is a peptide that is a marker for several tumours. TATI may also behave as an acute phase reactant in severe inflammatory disease. Overexpression of TATI predicts an unfavourable outcome for many cancers.
Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is the most common type of kidney cancer and comprises several subtypes with unique characteristics. The most common subtype (~70% of cases) is clear-cell RCC. RCC is considered to be an immunogenic tumour but is known to mediate immune dysfunction in large part by eliciting the infiltration of immune-inhibitory cells, such as regulatory T cells and myeloid-derived suppressor cells, into the tumour microenvironment.
Renal Cell Carcinoma (RCC) is one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers worldwide with research efforts dramatically improving understanding of the biology of the disease. To investigate the role of the immune system in treatment-naïve clear cell Renal Cell Carcinoma (ccRCC), we interrogated the immune infiltrate in patient-matched ccRCC tumor samples, benign normal adjacent tissue (NAT) and peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs isolated from whole blood, focusing our attention on the myeloid cell infiltrate.
NLRP3 pathway plays a vital role in the pathogenesis of different human cancers but still the regulation of NLRP3 pathway largely unknown. Therefore, we examined the levels of NLRP3 and its downstream components (caspase-1 and IL-1β) and its relationship with histone modifiers in renal cancer pathogenesis.
The purpose of this study is to validate a multivariable predictive model previously developed to differentiate between renal cell carcinoma (RCC) and oncocytoma using computed tomography (CT) parameters.
To develop and test the ability of a convolutional neural network (CNN) to accurately identify the presence of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) on histopathology specimens, as well as differentiate RCC histologic subtype and grade.
Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) accounts for 2-3% of all adult malignancies. Clear-cell type RCC is the most common type, accounting for approximately 75% of all renal cancer cases. The most common sites of metastasis include the lung, bone, and liver.
