VEGFC acts as a double-edged sword in renal cell carcinoma aggressiveness

Conclusion: Our study revisited the admitted dogma linking VEGFC to tumor aggressiveness. We conclude that targeting VEGFC for therapy must be considered with caution.

The objective of this study is to evaluate overall survival (OS), cancer-specific survival (CSS), relapse-free survival, local and distant (LRFS and DRFS, respectively) rates in patients with pT3a renal cell carcinoma (RCC) considering the perirenal and/or sinus fat infiltration (FI) as prognostic factors.Materials and methodsRetrospective cohort of patients with pT3a RCC who underwent radical or partial nephrectomy. The data were extracted from the LARCG (Latin American Renal Cancer Group) database. The demographic, clinical, pathological and surgical variables were evaluated. FI was divided into 4 groups (vein, perirenal...

ConclusionsThere were no significant differences in first-line outcomes between IOVE combinations and ipi-nivo. Most patients received VEGF-based therapy in the second line. In this group, second-line response rate was greater in patients who received ipi-nivo initially.Patient summaryThere were no significant differences in key first-line outcomes for patients with metastatic renal-cell carcinoma receiving immuno-oncology/vascular endothelial growth factor inhibitor combinations versus ipilimumab and nivolumab.

Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is not sensitive to conventional radio- and chemotherapies and is at least partially resistant to impairments in cell death-related signaling pathways. The hallmarks of RCC formation...

Authors: Moon D, Kim J, Yoon SP Abstract The microbiome has recently attracted research interest in a variety of subjects, including cancer. In the present study, it was determined that reinforced clostridium media (RCM) for microbiome culture, exerts antitumor effects on renal cell carcinoma cells when compared to the microbiome 'X'. The antitumor effects of RCM were investigated for all ingredients of RCM, and the results revealed that yeast extract could be a candidate for the ingredient driving this phenomenon. Further experiments including MTT assay, cell counting, cell death analysis, cell cycle analysis and ...

AbstractRenal cell tumors with mixed morphology resembling multiple renal cell carcinoma (RCC) subtypes are generally regarded as unclassified RCC. However, occasionally, papillary adenoma or RCC appears admixed with a larger, different tumor histology. We retrieved 17 renal tumors containing a papillary adenoma or papillary RCC component admixed with another tumor histology and studied them with immunohistochemistry and fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH). Larger tumors were oncocytomas (n = 10), chromophobe RCCs (n = 5), borderline oncocytic tumor (n = 1), and clear cell RCC (n&n...

iro The practising clinician treating a patient with metastatic clear cell renal cell carcinoma (CCRCC) faces a difficult task of choosing the most appropriate therapeutic regimen in a rapidly developing field with recommendations derived from clinical trials. NCCN guidelines for kidney cancer initiated a major shift in risk categorization and now include emerging treatments in the neoadjuvant setting. Updates of European Association of Urology clinical guidelines also include immune checkpoint inhibition as the first-line treatment. Randomized trials have demonstrated a survival benefit for ipilimumab and nivolumab co...

AbstractNone of the currently investigated molecular markers demonstrated sufficient accuracy in prognostication of the renal cell carcinoma (RCC) oncologic outcomes; thus, none of them has been recommended for the application in the routine clinical practice. The role of miR-15a as a potential prognostic marker for RCC is still not unveiled. The aim of our study was to assess the expression of miR-15a in tumor tissues of the patients with RCC and to evaluate the possibility of its usage as a prognostic molecular biomarker of this disease. The retrospective included 64 adult patients with clear cell RCC (ccRCC) in whom rad...

Abstract CMTM4 (CKLF-like MARVEL transmembrane domain containing 4), a potential tumor suppressor gene, is involved in several types of malignancies. It has been reported to be downregulated and exhibit anti-tumorigenic activities by regulating cell growth and cell cycle in clear cell renal cell carcinoma. It has also been identified as a tumor suppressor in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), and its negative expression is a risk factor for poor prognosis of HCC patients. In the present study, an integrated bioinformatics analysis based on The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) database showed that CMTM4 was frequently reduc...
