In a new study, researchers have found that miRNA processing mutations exhibit higher levels of Pleomorphic adenoma gene 1 (PLAG1), a protein that normally functions during development to turn on IGF2 expression. In kidney cells with miRNA mutations, PLAG1 levels are abnormally high, leading to inappropriate production of IGF2, which in turn promotes Wilms tumor formation.
Heating metals to very high temperatures can be incredibly dangerous for the 111 million people around the world who weld. The culprits are welding fumes, as well as exposure to radiation and asbestos, according to scientists at the International Agency for Research on Cancer. These toxins can potentially cause lung cancer, kidney cancer, and melanoma of the eye, as well as other health problems.
Obesity is associated with development of clear cell and possibly chromophobe renal cell carcinoma (RCC), but not papillary RCC, according to researchers.
Martin H. Voss, M.D., discusses the positive results of the CABOSUN trial.
'We’ll never be normal again:’ Little boy who’s been through a lot serves as honorary survivor at Relay for Life
A kindergartner from Wisconsin who was diagnosed with Wilms tumor serves as honorary survivor at Relay for Life.
People who eat broccoli and its cousins such as cabbage, cauliflower and bok choy at least once per week have a lower risk of kidney cancer compared with people who consume them less than once a month, according to a multinational European study.
Toni K. Choueiri, MD reflects on recent RCC advances.
Sexual Disorders of Patients With Metastatic Renal Cell Carcinoma (mRCC) Treated With Antiangiogenic Therapies
Targeted therapies, in particular antiangiogenic therapies (AATs), have become the standard of treatment for metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC). Although common adverse effects like fatigue have been well-established, sexual disorders induced by these treatments, although often reported, have been poorly evaluated.
Combined assessment of low PGRMC1/positive ATP1A1 levels has enhanced prognostic value for renal cell carcinoma
Progesterone receptor membrane component 1 (PGRMC1) and Na+/K+‑ATPase α1 subunit (ATP1A1) are two proteins associated with the clinical prognosis of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) and RCC cell proliferation. However, the two proteins have been previously studied independently, and their combined influence on the clinical outcome of RCC remains unclear.
