A team of researchers and doctors in Singapore has developed the first molecular test kit that can predict treatment and survival outcomes in kidney cancer patients.
Scientists were able to effect a 10-fold reduction in the volume of subcutaneous malignant tumors by administering local injections of a plasmid containing a RNA that modulates the action of an important gene in the process of programmed cell death.
Radical vs partial nephrectomy
Scientists have discovered a new molecular target for therapy to fight clear cell renal cell carcinoma (RCC)...
The study, known as RECORD-3, was published online July 21 in the Journal of Clinical Oncology.
The supposedly independent agency harassed the administration's political opponents and saved its health-care law.
The new study, published online this week in Nature, was led by Celeste Simon, PhD, a professor of Cell and Developmental Biology and the scientific director for the Abramson Family Cancer Research Institute at Penn.
Patients treated with targeted therapy for metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC) may derive significant survival benefit from cytoreductive nephrectomy (CN), particularly if their initial prognosis is good, study findings indicate.
Patients with renal cell carcinoma tumours larger than 4 cm benefit from undergoing elective partial nephrectomy (PN) rather than radical nephrectomy (RN) surgery, a study has found.
