Currently, clear cell renal carcinoma (CCRCC) has no prognostic markers. STAT3 protein (Signal Transducer and Activator of Transcription 3) is involved in the carcinogenesis of CCRCC. Its activation is produced by phosphorylation of the serine 727 residue, translocating to the nucleus where it is involved in carcinogenesis and tumor progression.
Biomarkers for the diagnosis and monitoring treatment response of kidney cancer are urgently needed. Neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) is a relevant urinary biomarker for the diagnosis of a wide variety of acute and chronic kidney diseases.
BACKGROUND - Glandular metastases (GMs) (pancreas, breast, parotid, thyroid, or contralateral adrenal) are rare in metastatic clear cell renal cell carcinoma (mccRCC). In a multicenter study we have assessed outcome from mccRCC with or without GMs.
Endobronchial metastases (EBM) secondary to extrathoracic malignancies are very rare. Breast cancer, colorectal cancer and renal cell carcinoma represent the most common types of cancer leading to endobronchial metastases.
A 62-year-old male with a history of radical prostatectomy for a Gleason 9 (4 + 5) pT3N0Mx prostate cancer presented with rising prostate-specific antigen of 9.0 ng/dl. A contrast-enhanced computerized tomography (CT) revealed an enhancing left upper pole renal mass and aortocaval lymph nodes.
PBX1 was abnormally overexpressed and its intracellular localization was found to be frequently amplified in many types of cancer, including renal clear cell carcinoma. PBX1 displays oncogenic activity in several different types of cells, but little is known about how signaling pathways are altered, and the function of PBX1 in renal clear cell carcinoma has not been well investigated.
The present work aimed to evaluate the prognostic value of overall survival (OS)-related genes in clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) and to develop a nomogram for clinical use. Transcriptome data from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) were collected to screen differentially expressed genes (DEGs) between ccRCC patients with OS > 5 years (149 patients) and those < 1 year (52 patients).
ERp57 dysfunction has been shown to contribute to tumorigenesis in multiple malignances. However, the role of ERp57 in clear cell renal carcinoma (ccRCC) remains unclear.
Cell proliferation ability was measured by MTT and colony forming assays.
