New Target for Fighting Clear Cell RCC?

Scientists have discovered a new molecular target for therapy to fight clear cell renal cell carcinoma, neuronal pentraxin 2 (NPTX2).

Kidney Cancer

Results of a new study show that cancer rates among children and adolescents are stable, but rates of certain cancers such as renal carcinomas are increasing.

A 71-year-old woman presented with back pain and was incidentally found to have a left upper pole renal mass. She underwent left open partial nephrectomy; the pathology results revealed a 2.2-cm clear-cell renal cell carcinoma (RCC) with negative margins and a Fuhrman nuclear grade of 2.

Patient exposure to metformin before undergoing nephrectomy for renal cell carcinoma may have an effect on patient survival, according to a new study.

Preoperative levels of C-reactive protein may be as predictive of outcomes as pathological TNM stage or tumor grade for prognosis in renal cell carcinoma.

A new study shows yet another link between increasing body mass index (BMI) and the risk of several common cancers, including kidney cancer.

Expression of microRNA (miR)-23b/27b cluster has been linked with increased risk for clear cell RCC disease progression, and may be a predictor of poor survival.

Researchers have identified a key gluconeogenic enzyme, the absence of which in clear cell renal cell carcinoma (RCC) may explain the uncontrolled cell growth present in cancer cells compared with normal kidney cells.
