Earn $100 by participating in a survey by RTI-HS

Research Triangle Institute - Health Solutions (RTI-HS) is recruiting adults diagnosed with renal cell cancer to participate in a survey pretest. This survey will ask you questions about your experience with renal cell cancer and your preferences for possible cancer medicines. If you are 18 years of age or older and have been diagnosed with renal cell cancer; you may qualify. The interview will take an hour, and you will be paid $100 if you are eligible and selected for the interview. If you are interested in participating or have questions, please contact Lauren Weaver at 919-541-6594.  Click here for directions to the facility.12/29/2008

AbstractPancreatectomy might confer a survival benefit in patients with metastatic tumors of the pancreas (MTPs); however, the optimal treatment for MTP has not been established. We reviewed six patients with MTP undergoing pancreatectomy and discussed the clinical features, surgical treatment, and survival. The sites of primary cancer included renal cell carcinoma (RCC) (n = 5; 83.3%) and rectal cancer (n = 1; 16.7%). The median interval between the resection of the primary site and the development of MTP was 157 months (range, 16–180 months). Three (60.0%) of the five cases of ...

Authors: Wei R, Ye X, Zhao Y, Jia N, Liu T, Lian W, Wei H, Zhang G, Song L Abstract MicroRNAs (miRs) have emerged as critical modulators of tumor initiation and progression in numerous types of human cancer, including clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC), which is the most common subtype of renal cell carcinoma. Cancerous inhibitor of protein phosphatase 2A (CIP2A) is a newly characterized oncoprotein and its overexpression has been reported to promote cellular epithelial-mesenchymal transition and the tumor progression of ccRCC. The present study examined the effects of miR-218 on CIP2A expression in ccRCC cell...

Authors: Xia L, Li S, Liu Y, Huang Y, Ni B, Wan L, Mei H, Li X, Cai Z, Li Z Abstract Neuron-derived neurotrophic factor (NDNF) is a glycosylated, disulfide-bonded secretory protein that contains a fibronectin type III domain. NDNF has been identified as a neurotrophic factor; however, its role in carcinogenesis has not yet been identified. To investigate the expression and role of NDNF in carcinogenesis, the expression of NDNF in human Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) cell lines and tissues was detected by reverse transcription-quantitative polymerase chain reaction (RT-qPCR) and western blot analysis. Cell proliferation...

Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is one of the most frequent malignancies of the adults. Its incidence has been increasing steadily by 2–4% each year. Up to 30% of patients present with metastases at diagnosis. It is a highly vascularized cancer because of the hypoxia-induced factor stabilization as a consequence of von Hippel-Lindau inactivation. Hypoxia-induced factor accumulation leads to transactivation of molecules involved in angiogenesis including vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and platelet-derived growth factor. Sunitinib is an oral tyrosine kinase inhibitor that interacts with several angiogenesis recep...

Abstract Extracellular vesicles (EVs) are important mediators of intercellular communication in cancer and in normal tissues. EVs transfer biologically active molecules from the cell of origin to recipient cells. This review summarizes the studies on EVs derived from renal cell carcinoma and from a subpopulation of CD105-positive renal cancer stem cells. While EVs from renal cell carcinoma show mild biological activity, EVs from renal cancer stem cells enhance tumor angiogenesis and metastasis formation. The effect is probably due to the transfer of proangiogenic RNA cargo to endothelial cells, which acquire an ac...
