Users of smartphone technology get access to the most current information about renal cancers.
Dialysis patients and transplant recipients, especially those with acquired cystic kidney disease, are at increased risk for renal cell carcinoma (RCC). We report our experience in 15 posttransplant patients who underwent nephrectomy for renal masses.
The treatment of advanced and metastatic kidney cancer has been revolutionized by the development of targeted systemic therapies. Despite the growing number of available agents approved for use against clear cell renal cell carcinoma, patients with non-clear histologies, constituting approximately 1 in 4 cases of kidney cancer, have not received the same attention.
Nanoparticles and magnetic fields team up to attack tumor cells in mice.
The under-reporting of the possible side effects of heart damage from cancer drugs puts patients at an increased risk for heart failure, according to two researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine.
Three of the 6 presentations will be on novel multivalent/multifunctional fusion proteins created by the Company's patented Dock-and-Lock (DNL) conjugation technology. They include bispecific hexavalent antibodies, as well as toxin or cytokine conjugates of antibodies, that bind to receptors found on many human solid tumors.
That's instead of three incisions for a typical laparoscopic nephrectomy -- one incision for each of two surgical tools that are inserted into the body and one more for a camera to see with.
Specifically, colon cancer patients had a 74 percent lower risk of having their cancer spread to other organs if they took aspirin daily. Aspirin also was tied to a 46 percent lower risk for colon, lung and prostate cancers and an 18 percent lower risk for bladder and kidney cancer.
Experts don't agree on how badly the law would be hobbled without the mandate to buy insurance. Some economists have estimated that the number of people getting insurance would be reduced by fewer than 8 million people. That's because the law allows people to ignore the mandate if they pay a penalty just $95 in the first year or don't earn enough to pay for insurance. Other economists have predicted that without the mandate, as many as 24 million people will go without coverage two-thirds of the number the law aimed to help cover.
Our staff carefully assembles a packet containing a variety of publications that are intended to help patients and their families to cope with cancer. No two packets are exactly alike, and each contains a copy of the 2010 or 2011 edition of "We Have Kidney Cancer," plus magazines, newsletters, brochures, and/or other items that may be important to families that are dealing with a loved one's cancer.
