Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) accounts for 3% of adult malignancies and more than 90% of kidney neoplasms. High rates of undiagnostic percutaneous kidney biopsies and difficulties in reliable pre-operative differentiation between malignant and benign renal tumors using contemporary imaging techniques result in large numbers of redundant surgeries.
Tivozanib extended PFS compared with sorafenib among patients with highly refractory advanced or metastatic renal cell carcinoma, according to randomized phase 3 study results released by the agentâs manufacturer.
Restricting protein intake may improve responses to immunotherapy, according to study results published in Clinical Cancer Research.
The VEGF inhibitor tivozanib (Fotivda) reduced the risk of disease progression or death by 26% compared with sorafenib (Nexavar) in patients with highly refractory advanced or metastatic renal cell carcinoma (RCC), according to topline findings from the phase III TIVO-3 trial.
There are many prognostic gene signature models in clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC). However, different results from various methods and samples are hard to contribute to clinical practice. It is necessary to develop a robust gene signature for improving clinical practice in ccRCC. A method was proposed to integrate least absolute shrinkage and selection operator and multiple Cox regression to obtain mRNA and microRNA signature from the cancer genomic atlas database for predicting prognosis of ccRCC.
Non-Coding Micro RNAs and Hypoxia-Inducible Factors Are Selenium Targets for Development of a Mechanism-Based Combination Strategy in Clear-Cell Renal Cell Carcinoma-Bench-to-Bedside Therapy
Durable response, inherent or acquired resistance, and dose-limiting toxicities continue to represent major barriers in the treatment of patients with advanced clear-cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC).
Surgical Management of Advanced Kidney Cancer: The Role of Cytoreductive Nephrectomy and Lymphadenectomy
Despite the evolution of systemic therapy from the immunotherapy to targeted therapy eras, surgical management remains a mainstay of treatment of patients with locally advanced, lymph node-positive, and distant metastatic renal cell carcinoma.
AVEO Oncology Announces Phase 3 TIVO-3 Trial of Tivozanib in Renal Cell Carcinoma Meets Primary Endpoint
AVEO Oncology today announced positive topline results from the primary analysis of the TIVO-3 trial, the Companyâs Phase 3 randomized, controlled, multi-center, open-label study to compare tivozanib (FOTIVDA) to sorafenib in 351 subjects with highly refractory advanced or metastatic renal cell carcinoma (RCC).
Clinical Utility of Chromosome Genomic Array Testing for Unclassified and Advanced-Stage Renal Cell Carcinomas
Cytogenomic analysis provides a useful adjunct to traditional pathology in the categorization of renal cell carcinomas (RCCs), particularly in morphologically ambiguous cases, but it has disadvantages, including cost.
A Cost-effectiveness Analysis of Sunitinib vs. Interferon-alpha in Patient with Advanced Renal Cell Carcinoma in Japan
Sunitinib has been shown to offer clinical benefits during the treatment of advanced renal cell carcinoma. However, molecular targeting drugs are expensive and can have a significant impact on medical expenses.
