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...
Aim of the study is to verify wether it is possible to have a more sensitive diagnostic tool using pancytokeratin immunohistochemistry for desmoplastic squamous cell carcinoma compared to ...
The clinical outcome of advanced / metastatic renal cell carcinoma has been changed since targeted therapy being widely applied. This study will retrospectively analyse the clinical outcom...
This clinical study is being conducted at multiple sites to determine the best confirmed response rate, safety, and tolerability of GSK1363089 treatment in papillary renal cell carcinoma. ...
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...
TFE3 is accepted as a good marker for the diagnosis of Xp11 translocation renal cell carcinoma. However, the significance of TFE3 in other types of renal cell carcinomas remains unclear. We examined t...
The sarcomatoid variant of renal cell carcinoma is a highly aggressive tumor with propensity for metastasis and limited therapeutic options. Metastases of sarcomatoid renal cell carcinoma can sometime...
Renal oncocytoma (RO) and chromophobe renal cell carcinoma (chRCC) are suggested to develop from α- and β-intercalated (IC) cells of the collecting duct expressing solute carrier family 4 member 1 (...
Metastasis-directed therapy of small solitary foci of metastatic renal cell carcinoma has been associated with improved survival. Percutaneous resection of tumors in the upper tract urinary system has...
To evaluate the association between the RENAL nephrometry score (RNS) and tumor proliferative activity assessed by immunohistochemistry in patients with localized renal cell carcinoma.
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)
