"Having kidney cancer was one of the best things that ever happened to me ... because I can truly empathize with patients," said Coleman, 54.
Medical tests were done and his diagnosis unraveled quickly: kidney cancer.
Surgeons at the University of California, San Diego Medical Center have performed the next in a series of groundbreaking single-incision surgeries. Through one small port in the navel, surgeons removed a kidney and ureter and reconstructed a patient's bladder as part of an innovative cancer surgery. This is the first time this minimally invasive procedure has been performed in the western United States.
Researchers at two institutions in Melbourne are evaluating a blood test that can measure CECs in RCC patients.
The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and effectiveness of MDX-1106 in patients with certain types of cancer. Another purpose is to determine how MDX-1106 is absorbed and distributed within the body, and how it's eventually eliminated.
Many disability applicants are unaware of the Social Security Administration's Compassionate Allowances program as it relates to disability applications.

Axitinib has antitumor activity in patients with mRCC refractory to prior VEGFtargeted therapy, including sorafenib.
We were able to identify overweight as an independent prognostic marker of improved tumor-specific survival in patients with organ-confined RCC. Basic research is required to resolve the dilemma of why, if a higher BMI predisposes to RCC, it concurrently prolongs survival after patients have undergone (partial) nephrectomy.
The drugs, called thiazole antibiotics, appear to block a cellular protein called FoxM1, one of the most over-produced proteins in cancer cells, according to researchers at the University of Illinois.
