MicroRNAs are a class of small noncoding RNAs that play an important role in progression and drug resistance in cancer. Several reports have shown that miR-130b modulates cell growth and drug resistance in some cancers. However, the expression and biological role of miR-130b in renal cell carcinoma (RCC) remain poorly understood. This study aimed to examine the expression and functional role of miR-130b and to analyze the association between miR-130b and sunitinib resistance in RCC.

LncARSR (lncRNA Activated in RCC with Sunitinib Resistance, ENST00000424980) is a newly identified lncRNA to promote the sunitinib resistance of renal cell carcinoma (RCC), which may contribute to tum...
Although sunitinib is the first-line drug for progressive renal cell carcinoma (RCC), most patients experience its tolerance. One possible way of overcoming drug resistance is combination therapy. Epi...
Tumor suppressor phosphatase and tensin homolog deleted on chromosome 10 (PTEN) plays a critical role in regulating cell survival, cell growth, and proliferation by antagonizing the PI3K-AKT-mTOR path...
In phase 3 trials of patients with resected high-risk renal cell carcinoma, adjuvant sunitinib has demonstrated no overall survival (OS) benefit, an uncertain disease-free survival (DFS) benefit, and ...
Although miR-29 has emerged as a crucial non-coding RNA in the regulation of pathological cardiac hypertrophy, further exploration of its specific mechanisms is necessary to resolve controversy about ...
The safety and tolerability of CVX-060 have been established in the first-in-human clinical trial, CVX-060-101. Thus, this phase Ib/II trial is to assess the safety and pharmacokinetics (...
The purpose of this research study is to further define an effective strategy for people with renal cell carcinoma and to learn the safety and effectiveness of two different types of sunit...
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if Sutent® (sunitinib malate), given before surgery, can help control renal cell carcinoma. The safety of sunitinib malate will also b...
This will be a prospective, open-label, randomized multicenter phase-II study to evaluate progression free survival (PFS) in patients with locally advanced or metastatic non-clear cell ren...
The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of a sunitinib administration schedule 2/1 (2 weeks of treatment followed by 1 week without) compared to a schedule 4/2 (4 weeks of tre...
A lipid phosphatase that acts on phosphatidylinositol-3,4,5-trisphosphate to regulate various SIGNAL TRANSDUCTION PATHWAYS. It modulates CELL GROWTH PROCESSES; CELL MIGRATION; and APOPTOSIS. Mutations in PTEN are associated with COWDEN DISEASE and PROTEUS SYNDROME as well as NEOPLASTIC CELL TRANSFORMATION.
Drugs used for their effects on the kidneys' regulation of body fluid composition and volume. The most commonly used are the diuretics. Also included are drugs used for their antidiuretic and uricosuric actions, for their effects on the kidneys' clearance of other drugs, and for diagnosis of renal function.
The amount of PLASMA that perfuses the KIDNEYS per unit time, approximately 10% greater than effective renal plasma flow (RENAL PLASMA FLOW, EFFECTIVE). It should be differentiated from the RENAL BLOOD FLOW; (RBF), which refers to the total volume of BLOOD flowing through the renal vasculature, while the renal plasma flow refers to the rate of plasma flow (RPF).
Persistent high BLOOD PRESSURE due to KIDNEY DISEASES, such as those involving the renal parenchyma, the renal vasculature, or tumors that secrete RENIN.
Conditions in which the KIDNEYS perform below the normal level in the ability to remove wastes, concentrate URINE, and maintain ELECTROLYTE BALANCE; BLOOD PRESSURE; and CALCIUM metabolism. Renal insufficiency can be classified by the degree of kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA) and reduction in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE. The most severe form is KIDNEY FAILURE. Renal function may deteriorate slowly (RENAL INSUFFICIENCY, CHRONIC) or precipitously (RENAL INSUFFICIENCY, ACUTE).
Renal Cell Carcinoma
Renal cell cancer (renal adenocarcinoma or hypernephroma) is the most common type of kidney cancer in adults. More than 8 in every 10 (80%) kidney cancers diagnosed in the UK are this type. In renal cell cancer the cancerous cells start in the lini...
