Clinical Trials [7429 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Immune Response Following Treatment of Resectable Renal Cell Carcinoma at Intermediate Risk of Recurrence

Renal cell carcinoma patients' blood will be monitored over a period of 15 weeks to evaluate their level of immune response to multiple administration of HSPPC-96.

Study of Neoadjuvant Nivolumab in Patients With Non-metastatic Stage II-IV Clear Cell Renal Cell Carcinoma

This study will evaluate the use of nivolumab before surgery in patients with high-risk clear cell renal cell carcinoma who are eligible for nephrectomy. Nivolumab is an antibody that may ...

DC Vaccine Therapy Combined With Cytokine-Induced Killer Cell in Treating Patients With Renal Cell Carcinoma

The purpose of this study is to show if vaccination with autologous dendritic cells pulsed with tumor lysate in combination with Cytokine-Induced Killer Cell (CIK) can induce a measurable ...

Evaluation of Bay 59-8862 in Patients With Advanced Renal Cell Carcinoma

In patients with renal cell cancer, most frequent methods of treatment include surgery, chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, and immunotherapy. Renal cell carcinoma is usually considered to be...

Trial of G250 Peptide and IL-2 Following Surgical Resection of Locally Advanced/Metastatic Renal Cell Carcinoma

The purpose of this study is to determine whether the experimental vaccine G250 with or without IL-2 can produce an immune response in patients with renal cell carcinoma who have had all t...

Evolving Immunotherapy Approaches for Renal Cell Carcinoma.

Metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC) continues to be associated with high rates of morbidity and mortality. Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is typically resistant to cytotoxic chemotherapy, and while tar...

Advances in the management of renal cell carcinoma.

Renal cell carcinoma accounts for about 3-4% of all malignancies and its incidence is steadily rising. The article presents in short the rationale behind the targeted therapies and provides an update ...

Management of non-clear cell renal cell carcinoma: Current approaches.

Non-clear cell renal cell carcinoma includes several histological variants. Tumor biology has significant effect on the duration of the disease. Prognosis at formally similar disease stages may differ...

Metastatic renal clear cell carcinoma to the rectum, lungs, ilium, and lymph nodes: A case report.

Renal cell carcinoma metastasizing to rectum is very rare, and the unusual metastatic sites should be paid attention to during the follow-up of renal cell carcinoma.

Metastatic Renal Cell Carcinoma to the Pancreas: A Review.

The pancreas is an unusual site for tumor metastasis, accounting for only 2% to 5% of all malignancies affecting the pancreas. The more common metastases affecting the pancreas include renal cell carc...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A heterogeneous group of sporadic or hereditary carcinoma derived from cells of the KIDNEYS. There are several subtypes including the clear cells, the papillary, the chromophobe, the collecting duct, the spindle cells (sarcomatoid), or mixed cell-type carcinoma.

An autosomal dominant disorder caused by mutations in a tumor suppressor gene. This syndrome is characterized by abnormal growth of small blood vessels leading to a host of neoplasms. They include HEMANGIOBLASTOMA in the RETINA; CEREBELLUM; and SPINAL CORD; PHEOCHROMOCYTOMA; pancreatic tumors; and renal cell carcinoma (see CARCINOMA, RENAL CELL). Common clinical signs include HYPERTENSION and neurological dysfunctions.

A heterogeneous aggregate of at least three distinct histological types of lung cancer, including SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA; ADENOCARCINOMA; and LARGE CELL CARCINOMA. They are dealt with collectively because of their shared treatment strategy.

A rare tumor of the female genital tract, most often the ovary, formerly considered to be derived from mesonephric rests. Two varieties are recognized: (1) clear cell carcinoma, so called because of its histologic resemblance to renal cell carcinoma, and now considered to be of muellerian duct derivation and (2) an embryonal tumor (called also ENDODERMAL SINUS TUMOR and yolk sac tumor), occurring chiefly in children. The latter variety may also arise in the testis. (Dorland, 27th ed)

A carcinoma arising from MERKEL CELLS located in the basal layer of the epidermis and occurring most commonly as a primary neuroendocrine carcinoma of the skin. Merkel cells are tactile cells of neuroectodermal origin and histologically show neurosecretory granules. The skin of the head and neck are a common site of Merkel cell carcinoma, occurring generally in elderly patients. (Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 3d ed, p1245)
