Two-protein signature of novel serological markers apolipoprotein-A2 and serum amyloid alpha predicts prognosis in patients with metastatic renal cell cancer and improves the currently used prognostic
Proteomics and subsequent validation yielded two novel prognostic markers and survival models which improved prediction of OS in mRCC patients over commonly used risk models. Implementation of these models has the potential to improve current risk stratification, although prospective validation will still be necessary.

Targeted agents in metastatic Xp11 translocation/TFE3 gene fusion renal cell carcinoma (RCC): a report from the Juvenile RCC Network
Xp11 translocation renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is an RCC subtype affecting 15% of RCC patients <45 years. We analyzed the benefit of targeted therapy [vascular endothelial growth factor receptor (VEGFR)-targeted agents and/or mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) inhibitors] in these patients.
