ConclusionsSTAT3 (Ser 727) expression in the nucleus of the ccRCC cells can be a prognostic marker and an antiangiogenic-resistance marker. Current scientific evidence is limited and more studies are needed to demonstrate its usefulness.ResumenContexto y objetivoEn los últimos años se han producido avances significativos en el conocimiento de la carcinogénesis renal. Hoy en día los tumores renales se clasifican en función de su perfil genético, y además se han desarrollado tratamientos específicos basados en la identificación de dianas terapéuticas. Sin ...

AbstractBackgroundSerum protein fraction (SPF) is a common parameter reflecting the nutritional and inflammatory status of the human body. However, its role in patients with cancer, particularly those treated with targeted agents, is unknown.ObjectiveWe conducted this study to explore the prognostic value of SPF in patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC) treated with tyrosine kinase inhibitors and its association with clinical characteristics.MethodsPatients with mRCC (n = 213) who initiated first-line sunitinib or sorafenib systemic therapy for metastatic disease between March 2007 and June 2017...

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 ...

Publication date: Available online 15 March 2019Source: Urology Case ReportsAuthor(s): Ryoei Hara, Tomohiro Fujii, Shin Ohira, Mikako Kaifu, Yoshiyuki Miyaji, Atsushi NagaiAbstractA 64-year-old man had an intra-abdominal mass that was detected in a follow-up examination after laparoscopic partial nephrectomy for renal cell carcinoma (RCC). CT showed an enhanced mass of 2.5-cm diameter near the right kidney, where partial nephrectomy had been performed. Local recurrence of RCC with duodenum invasion was suspected, and excision was performed. The final pathological diagnosis of desmoid tumor differed from the preoperative di...

ConclusionProper differentiation of RCCs related to translocation of MiT family requires immunostaining for TFE3, especially in the case of younger patients, among which the prevalence of this genetic mutation is frequent.

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...
