Research carried out by scientists at the San Diego School of Medicine emphasizes the importance of kidney-sparing surgery to reduce the risk of later-life osteoporosis.
A Stanford team has identified a compound that blocked growth of renal cell carcinomas in mice by inhibiting a metabolic pathway unique to the tumors.
Listening to music may reduce anxiety and pain in cancer patients, new research suggests.
Cancer Research UK scientists have found that blocking the pathway used by some kidney cancer cells to generate energy can kill the cancer cells, sparing the healthy ones.
Urine Metabolomic Analysis Identifies Potential Biomarkers and Pathogenic Pathways in Kidney Cancer, used metabolomics techniques to identify metabolites in the urine of patients with kidney cancer (renal cell carcinoma, RCC) that appear at different levels compared with patients without kidney cancer.
Accumulating evidence suggests an etiologic role in renal cell carcinoma (RCC) for physical activity.
Smoking increases the chances of developing advanced kidney cancer, the most deadly form of the disease, warn researchers from Duke University Medical Center.

The discovery, which was described in a paper published Wednesday, was studied in a common type of kidney cancer cell, but it could apply to tumors in other parts of the body as well.
A team around Auckland Cancer Society Research Centre (ACSRC) associate professor Michael Hay including researchers at the Maurice Wilkins Centre for Molecular Biodiversity and Stanford has designed a compound known as STF-31 that starves certain cancer cells of glucose, depriving them of energy.
