New developments in cross-sectional imaging, including contrast-enhanced ultrasound, dual-energy computed tomography, multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging, single-photon emission computed tomography, and positron emission tomography, together with novel application of existing and novel radiotracers, have changed the landscape of renal mass characterization (ie, virtual biopsy) as well as the detection of metastatic disease, prognostication, and response assessment in patients with advanced kidney cancer.
Kidney Cancer Association is pleased to announce it has recently appointed Gretchen Vaughan as the nonprofit’s new CEO.

According to a study that was published by the Journal of Urology, a total of 112 tumors in 106 patients were treated with radio frequency ablation. The median followup was 79 months (IQR 28.9-121.1) and mean ± SD tumor size was 2.5 ± 0.8 cm. Initial technical success was achieved in 97 percent of cases.
Patient-reported outcomes of patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma treated with nivolumab plus ipilimumab versus sunitinib (CheckMate 214): a randomised, phase 3 trial
In the ongoing phase 3, CheckMate 214 trial, nivolumab plus ipilimumab improved overall survival compared with sunitinib in patients with intermediate or poor risk, previously untreated, advanced renal cell carcinoma.
The diagnosis of cutaneous metastasis of renal cell carcinoma is challenging in a young person in absence of a prior history of cancer. In such situation, fine needle aspiration alone as a minimally invasive procedure can provide rapid, accurate and cost effective diagnosis, even in case of unknown primary.
Personalized treatment plans may extend life expectancy for early-stage kidney cancer patients who have risk factors for worsening kidney disease, according to a new study published in the journal Radiology.

VEGF TKIs have long defined the frontline standard of care in metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC), but several promising trials evaluating their use in combination with immunotherapy agents may redefine the frontline setting in this patient population.
Royal jelly, a substance secreted by worker honeybees that is the exclusive food for queen bees, may ease the adverse effects of tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) therapy for advanced renal cell carcinoma (RCC).
