Prolonged exposure to tyrosine kinase inhibitors or early use of everolimus in metastatic renal cell carcinoma: are the two options alike?
We retrospectively analyzed metastatic renal cell carcinoma (RCC) patients treated with 3 targeted agents. Patients started the sequence with a tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI), sunitinib or sorafenib, and were divided into 2 groups based on the order in which they received the other reciprocal TKI and everolimus (EVE): TKI-TKI-EVE group (nÂ =Â 19) and TKI-EVE-TKI group (nÂ =Â 14).

As we officially commemorate National Volunteer Week, I am giving a shout out to those 65 million family caregivers nationwide -- most of them caring for someone over age 50 -- who essentially have volunteered to care for a loved one who is sick, getting older, or has a disorder or disability. Caregivers are an invaluable volunteer army drafted into service to help loved ones remain at home rather than in facilities and institutions.

Adding "chemical shift" techniques to MRI can help differentiate clear cell renal cell carcinoma from other types of renal cell cancer, a new study shows. That differentiation can help physicians better determine treatment for these patients.
