Stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) is an emerging radiotherapy technique that precisely delivers high doses of radiation to tumours. It has been investigated as definitive treatment for...
NIVES study is an ongoing phase II, single arm, multicenter study. In this trial pts received SBRT to one non-brain measurable lesion and concomitant NIVOLUMAB, an anti-programmed cell dea...
The aim of this phase II trial is to assess the non-progress survival，local control，overall survival，safety and tolerability of SBRT to treat patients with oligometastases in esophag...
Immunotherapy targeting the PD-1/PD-L1 pathway had previously been shown to be efficacious in the treatment of patients with metastatic head and neck squamous cell carcinomas. Stereotactic...
Purpose To determine efficacy and safety of Testosterone in male patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma and fatigue receiving targeted therapy or checkpoint inhibitors.
The expression of IL-8 and FGFR has been related to prognosis and pathological features in renal cell carcinoma. We investigated the relationship between IL-8 and FGFR and the outcome in metastatic re...
The prognostic value of obesity is unestablished for renal cell carcinoma. We assessed the age-dependent prognostic value of body mass index (BMI) in a large multicenter cohort of patients with non-me...
B7-H4 is a member of the B7 family of immune-regulatory ligands and is considered to be a negative regulator of the immune response. We investigated the clinical significance of serum soluble B7-H4 in...
Renal cell cancer accounts for approximately 2-3% of all cases of malignancy. The incidence of kidney cancer in the Czech Republic is the highest in the world. Approximately 70% of renal cell carcinom...
To investigate the prognostic significance of various patterns of extrarenal extension that comprise pathologic stage T3a clear cell renal cell carcinoma among patients undergoing nephrectomy for non-...
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 systemic, large-cell, non-Hodgkin, malignant lymphoma characterized by cells with pleomorphic appearance and expressing the CD30 ANTIGEN. These so-called "hallmark" cells have lobulated and indented nuclei. This lymphoma is often mistaken for metastatic carcinoma and MALIGNANT HISTIOCYTOSIS.
