Nature Reviews Nephrology, Published online: 21 October 2019; doi:10.1038/s41581-019-0210-zOncometabolites — conventional metabolites that, when aberrantly accumulated, have pro-oncogenic capabilities — have been implicated in renal cell carcinoma (RCC). Here, the authors review the role of oncometabolites in RCC, their origins and downstream effects and their potential applications as novel therapeutic targets and biomarkers.

In this study, we investigated the prognostic significance of pAMPK with respect to subcellular location and investigated its interaction with TGF-β/SMAD in ccRCC. Immunohistochemical staining for pAMPK, pSMAD2 and SMAD4 was conducted on tissue microarray of 987 ccRCC specimens. Moreover, the levels of pSMAD2 were measured in Caki-1 cells treated with 5-aminoimidazole-4-carboxamide ribonucleotide. The relationship between AMPK/pAMPK and TGFB1 expression was determined using the TCGA database. As a result, pAMPK positivity, either in the cytoplasm or nuclei, was independently associated with improved ccRCC prognosi...

We describe the clinicopathologic features of BKPyV-associated urologic carcinomas in a single-institution cohort. RESULTS: Among 4,772 kidney recipients during 1994 to 2014, 26 (0.5%) and 26 (0.5%) developed posttransplantation urothelial carcinomas (UCs) and renal cell carcinomas (RCCs), respectively, as of 2017. Six (27%) UCs but none of the RCCs expressed large T antigen (TAg). TAg-expressing UCs were high grade with p16 and p53 overexpression (P

ConclusionsWe review the literature on pericardial effusion under nivolumab to further discuss the hallmarks of pericardial effusion under nivolumab and the management of nivolumab therapy in this situation. In conclusion, pericardial effusion as an immune-related adverse event under nivolumab appears less rare than initially thought and may require particular attention.

Abstract Radiotherapy is living a second life in Renal Cell Carcinoma (RCC) patients, mainly due to the introduction of immunocheckpoint inhibitors, such as anti-Programmed-death (PD)-1, alone or in combination with anti-Cytotoxic T-Lymphocyte Antigen (CTLA)-4. Several trials are investigating the efficacy/safety of immunocheckpoint inhibitors in sequential or combined strategies with radiotherapy. Chimeric Antigen Receptor (CAR)-T cells therapy as a promising approach in cancer patients has opened the way to novel possibilities of integrating therapies. The identification of biomarkers of tumor response to these ...

artin Pichler Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is a relatively rare malignancy of the urinary tract system. RCC is a heterogenous disease in terms of underlying histology and its associated underlying pathobiology, prognosis and treatment schedule. The most prevalent histological RCC subtype is clear-cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC), accounting for about 70–80% of all RCCs. Though the pathobiology and treatment schedule for ccRCC are well-established, non-ccRCC subtypes account for 20%–30% of RCC altogether, and their underlying molecular biology and treatment options are poorly defined. The class of non...

We examined the role of differentially expressed autophagy-related genes (DEARGs) in clear cell Renal Cell Carcinoma (ccRCC) using high-throughput RNA-seq data from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA). Cox regression analyses showed that 5 DEARGs (PRKCQ, BID, BAG1, BIRC5, and ATG16L2) correlated with overall survival (OS) and 4 DEARGs (EIF4EBP1, BAG1, ATG9B, and BIRC5) correlated with disease-free survival (DFS) in ccRCC patients. Multivariate Cox regression analysis using the OS and DFS prognostic risk models showed that expression of the nine DEARGs accurately and independently predicted the risk of disease recurrence or prog...

In conclusion, adult weight gain was associated with increased risk of several major cancers. The degree, timing, and duration of overweight and obesity also seemed to be important. Preventing weight gain may reduce the cancer risk. Link: https://doi.org/10.1093/ije/dyz188
