The short-term oncological and functional outcomes for partial nephrectomy are comparable for laparoscopic partial nephrectomy following selective embolization of tumor (LPNE) in a hybrid operating room and robot-assisted partial nephrectomy (RAPN). A longer follow-up and a larger cohort of patients would be necessary to verify the benefits of LPNE, which appears to be a very interesting alternative to RAPN.
Over a 25-year period, the proportion of patients with high-risk clinical T1 tumors increased by nearly 20 percent and clinical tumor size decreased from 8.4 to 6.2 cm, an Italian study found.
Studies show that ZHX2 could be used as a potential therapeutic target for ccRCC.
Women with diabetes have an 11 percent higher chance of developing kidney cancer.
Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a common complication in cancer patients and occurs in up to 30% of patients during their disease course. Multiple myeloma, leukemia/lymphoma, renal cell carcinoma, and hematopoietic stem cell transplantation are commonly associated with the development of AKI.
In a study reported in JAMA Oncology, Carlo et al found a high prevalence of germline mutations in cancer susceptibility genes in patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma (RCC).
This study shows the risk of RCC after kidney transplantation.
Blood in urine is a key symptom of kidney cancer.
While studying two rare inherited cancer syndromes, Yale Cancer Center (YCC) scientists have found the cancers are driven by a breakdown in how cells repair their DNA.
Scientists at Stanford used a magnetic wire to capture free-floating tumor cells in the blood, a technique that soon could be used in humans to yield an earlier cancer diagnosis.
