Authors: Bozzini G, Seveso M, Romero Otero J, Osmolorskij B, Garcia Cruz E, Margreiter M, Verze P, Besana U, Buizza C Abstract BACKGROUND: Frozen section analysis (FSA) is frequently performed during partial nephrectomy (PN). We investigate the utility of intraoperative FSA by evaluating its impact on final surgical margin (SM) status. METHODS: Between January 1995 and December 2005 we prospectively analysed a series of patients who were treated with open PN for Renal Cell Carcinoma. During PN each patient underwent a FSA on renal parenchyma distal margin . If FSA was positive for infiltration a deeper excision...

We present a 78-year-old male with renal cell carcinoma who developed myasthenia gravis complicated by myositis after nivolumab administration, which was verified by the presence of antibodies against the acetylcholine receptor. The initial symptom was posterior neck pain, and biochemical examination of blood showed elevated levels of hepatic enzymes and creatine phosphokinase. The level of antibody against the acetylcholine receptor increased 4.1-fold. His condition progressed rapidly resulting in respiratory failure 15 days after conservative therapy.

Melanoma antigen-A11 (MAGE-A11) is a low-abundance, primate-specific steroid receptor coregulator in normal tissues of the human reproductive tract, which plays an important role in tumorigenesis. Single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) have been shown to contribute to cancer risk and prognosis. However, the role of SNPs of MAGE-A11 in renal cell carcinoma (RCC) has not been established. Two intronic SNPs (rs6641352 and rs6540341) of MAGE-A11 have been screened to assess their associations with RCC risk and prognosis in a case control study. We found that rs6641352 was associated with RCC susceptibility in the dominant mode...

Conclusion: These results indicated that KCNQ1DN inhibit the growth of RCC cells in vitro and in vivo through repressing the oncogene c-myc, suggesting that KCNQ1DN may serve as a novel target for the treatment of RCC.

This study aimed to investigate the mRNA expression of CD36 in anthropometric measures of adipose tissue and defining its value in predicting prognosis in ccRCC patients.Methods: Real-Time qPCR gene expression analysis was detected from 367 paired ccRCC and adjacent normal tissues. Distributions of categorical clinical-pathological data together with levels of CD36 expression were compared with χ2-test in a contingency table. Subcutaneous adipose tissue (SAT) and visceral adipose tissue (VAT) were measured by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and identified at the level of the umbilicus. Pearson's correlation coefficien...

Background: the plasma D-dimer and fibrinogen which are indicators of coagulation-fibrinolysis system has been reported to be associated with survival in several types of cancers, including RCC. The aim of our study was to assess the prognostic significance of preoperative plasma D-dimer and fibrinogen levels in RCC patients.Methods: Data from 449 patients with RCC were assessed retrospectively. Cutoff value for plasma D-dimer and fibrinogen were tested by the standardized cutoff-finder algorithm. Overall survival (OS) and disease-free survival (DFS) were evaluated using the Kaplan-Meier method. Univariate and Multivariate...

Conclusions: Preoperative AAPR might be an independent prognostic factor in patients with non-metastatic RCC. The ratio should be applied in RCC patients for risk stratification and clinical decision-making.

In conclusion, our study confirms that the hypermethylation of BRM promoters plays oncogenic roles by the transcription inhibition of BRM in RCC, and the tumor suppressor gene BRM inhibits RCC cell vitality in vitro and in vivo.

Expression of KRT17 has been described in multi-layered epithelia as well as in tumors derived from these cells. In cancers arising from KRT17 negative single layered epithelia neo-expression of KRT17 has been associated with tumor progression. To obtain more insight into the biology of kidney cancers we have investigated KRT17 expression by immunohistochemistry in normal kidney, in papillary preneoplastic lesions and in 151 papillary and 692 conventional renal cell carcinomas placed on tissue microarray. We found a positive staining in ureteric bud and collecting duct cells in foetal kidney, in all papillary preneoplastic...
