A novel heterozygous mutation in the Birt-Hogg-Dub é Syndrome.

CONCLUSION: In patients presenting with bilateral multifocal renal tumors of oncocytic hybrid histology, Birt- Hogg-Dubé syndrome should be the first diagnosis in mind. The mutation found in this patient has not been previously described in the literature in the context of BHD. PMID: 28891800 [PubMed - in process]

HMGA2 facilitates epithelial-mesenchymal transition in renal cell carcinoma by regulating the TGF-β/Smad2 signaling pathway. Oncol Rep. 2017 Nov 10;: Authors: Kou B, Liu W, Tang X, Kou Q Abstract High-mobility group AT-hook 2 (HMGA2), a member of the high mobility group family, has been reported to correlate with cancer progression. However, there is no report concerning the correlation between HMGA2 and metastasis in renal cell carcinoma. In the present study, we found that HMGA2 was highly expressed in five renal cell carcinoma cell lines compared with that in the normal renal tubular epithelial...

miR‑660‑5p is associated with cell migration, invasion, proliferation and apoptosis in renal cell carcinoma. Mol Med Rep. 2017 Nov 14;: Authors: He T, Chen P, Jin L, Hu J, Li Y, Zhou L, Yang S, Mao X, Gui Y, Chen Y, Lai Y Abstract Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is a common malignant tumor of the urinary system with poor prognosis. microRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of small, non‑coding RNA molecules that serve important roles in biological and pathological processes in several types of human tumors. miRNA (miR)‑660‑5p is dysregulated in many human cancers; however, its role in renal cell carcinoma is...

A systematic review was conducted to identify real world studies reporting outcomes after first-line pazopanib in patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma. Studies had to be observational and report survival data in terms of progression-free survival and overall survival in order to conduct meta-analysis techniques. These real-world data were compared to those obtained in the phase II and III randomized controlled trials of pazopanib. Real world evidence showed that the clinical and safety outcomes were consistent with those observed in the clinical trials despite the inclusion of unselected patients with a wide spect...

Authors: Qin Z, Wei X, Jin N, Wang Y, Zhao R, Hu Y, Yan W, Li J, Zhou Q Abstract Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is one of the three most common cancers of urinary tract cancer, accounting for 2-3% of all systemic cancers. Recent studies have found that miR-199a is lowly expressed in RCC, may act as a tumour suppressor gene to induce the occurrence of kidney cancer. In the present study, we investigated the role of miR-199a in the progression and metastasis of RCC. The results showed that miR-199a significantly downregulated in RCC and cell lines. Overexpression of miR-199a in RCC cell lines significantly inhibited cell...

CONCLUSIONS: In relation to the histological subtype, the papillary type of RCC was associated with a significantly higher expression of cyclin A and p16 compared to other subtypes of RCC. High expression of cyclin A indicated worse prognosis, therefore cyclin A could be considered to be a significant prognostic marker. PMID: 29135120 [PubMed - in process]
