Decreased expression of the pro-apoptotic protein Par-4 in renal cell carcinoma. (1/5944)

Par-4 is a widely expressed leucine zipper protein that confers sensitization to apoptosis induced by exogenous insults. Because the expression of genes that promote apoptosis may be down-regulated during tumorigenesis, we sought to examine the expression of Par-4 in human tumors. We present here evidence that Par-4 protein levels were severely decreased in human renal cell carcinoma specimens relative to normal tubular cells. Replenishment of Par-4 protein levels in renal cell carcinoma cell lines conferred sensitivity to apoptosis. Because apoptosis may serve as a defense mechanism against malignant transformation or progression, decreased expression of Par-4 may contribute to the pathophysiology of renal cell carcinoma.  (+info)

Surgery-related factors and local recurrence of Wilms tumor in National Wilms Tumor Study 4. (2/5944)

OBJECTIVE: To assess the prognostic factors for local recurrence in Wilms tumor. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: Current therapy for Wilms tumor has evolved through four studies of the National Wilms Tumor Study Group. As adverse prognostic factors were identified, treatment of children with Wilms tumor has been tailored based on these factors. Two-year relapse-free survival of children in the fourth study (NWTS-4) exceeded 91%. Factors once of prognostic import for local recurrence may lose their significance as more effective therapeutic regimens are devised. METHODS: Children evaluated were drawn from the records of NWTS-4. A total of 2482 randomized or followed patients were identified. Local recurrence, defined as recurrence in the original tumor bed, retroperitoneum, or within the abdominal cavity or pelvis, occurred in 100 children. Using a nested case-control study design, 182 matched controls were selected. Factors were analyzed for their association with local failure. Relative risks and 95% confidence intervals were calculated, taking into account the matching. RESULTS: The largest relative risks for local recurrence were observed in patients with stage III disease, those with unfavorable histology (especially diffuse anaplasia), and those reported to have tumor spillage during surgery. Multiple regression analysis adjusting for the combined effects of histology, lymph node involvement, and age revealed that tumor spillage remained significant. The relative risk of local recurrence from spill was largest in children with stage II disease. The absence of lymph node biopsy was also associated with an increased relative risk of recurrence, which was largest in children with stage I disease. The survival of children after local recurrence is poor, with an average survival rate at 2 years after relapse of 43%. Survival was dependent on initial stage: those who received more therapy before relapse had a worse prognosis. CONCLUSIONS: This study has demonstrated that surgical rupture of the tumor must be prevented by the surgeon, because spills produce an increased risk of local relapse. Both local and diffuse spills produce this risk. Stage II children with local spill appear to require more aggressive therapy than that used in NWTS-4. The continued critical importance of lymph node sampling in conjunction with nephrectomy for Wilms tumor is also established. Absence of lymph node biopsy may result in understaging and inadequate treatment of the child and may produce an increased risk of local recurrence.  (+info)

Profound variation in dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase activity in human blood cells: major implications for the detection of partly deficient patients. (3/5944)

Dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase (DPD) is responsible for the breakdown of the widely used antineoplastic agent 5-fluorouracil (5FU), thereby limiting the efficacy of the therapy. To identify patients suffering from a complete or partial DPD deficiency, the activity of DPD is usually determined in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBM cells). In this study, we demonstrated that the highest activity of DPD was found in monocytes followed by that of lymphocytes, granulocytes and platelets, whereas no significant activity of DPD could be detected in erythrocytes. The activity of DPD in PBM cells proved to be intermediate compared with the DPD activity observed in monocytes and lymphocytes. The mean percentage of monocytes in the PBM cells obtained from cancer patients proved to be significantly higher than that observed in PBM cells obtained from healthy volunteers. Moreover, a profound positive correlation was observed between the DPD activity of PBM cells and the percentage of monocytes, thus introducing a large inter- and intrapatient variability in the activity of DPD and hindering the detection of patients with a partial DPD deficiency.  (+info)

Methylation-associated silencing of the tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase-3 gene suggest a suppressor role in kidney, brain, and other human cancers. (4/5944)

Tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase-3 (TIMP-3) antagonizes matrix metalloproteinase activity and can suppress tumor growth, angiogenesis, invasion, and metastasis. Loss of TIMP-3 has been related to the acquisition of tumorigenesis. Herein, we show that TIMP-3 is silenced in association with aberrant promoter-region methylation in cell lines derived from human cancers. TIMP-3 expression was restored after 5-aza-2'deoxycytidine-mediated demethylation of the TIMP-3 proximal promoter region. Genomic bisulfite sequencing revealed that TIMP-3 silencing was related to the overall density of methylation and that discrete regions within the TIMP-3 CpG island may be important for the silencing of this gene. Aberrant methylation of TIMP-3 occurred in primary cancers of the kidney, brain, colon, breast, and lung, but not in any of 41 normal tissue samples. The most frequent TIMP-3 methylation was found in renal cancers, which originate in the tissue that normally expresses the highest TIMP-3 levels. This methylation correlated with a lack of detectable TIMP-3 protein in these tumors. Together, these data show that methylation-associated inactivation of TIMP-3 is frequent in many human tumors.  (+info)

Isolation and characterization of a rat homologue of the human tuberous sclerosis 1 gene (Tsc1) and analysis of its mutations in rat renal carcinomas. (5/5944)

In the Eker rat, a germ-line mutation in the homologue of the human tuberous sclerosis gene (Tsc2) causes renal cell carcinomas (RCs) with a complete penetrance in all heterozygotes. Tsc2 mutations have also been found in a subset of chemically induced non-Eker rat RCs. Because tuberous sclerosis patients with alteration of either of the two predisposing genes (TSC1 and TSC2) show identical symptoms, the products of these two genes are thought to be involved in a common biological pathway. In this study, to analyze the possible overlap between the functions of Tsc2 and Tscl gene products, we isolated and characterized a rat homologue of the TSC1 gene (Tsc1). The rat Tsc1 gene, which has an identical exon-intron structure to that of human TSC1 and is localized on rat chromosome 3, has been shown to encode a protein (hamartin) that is highly homologous to the human counterpart with an approximately 86% amino acid sequence identity. Using PCR-single-strand conformational polymorphism analysis, we identified two splicing donor site mutations in one chemically induced rat RC (1 of 15). This suggests that alterations of the Tsc1 gene may be involved in the development of a subset of rat RCs.  (+info)

Presentation of renal tumor antigens by human dendritic cells activates tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes against autologous tumor: implications for live kidney cancer vaccines. (6/5944)

The clinical impact of dendritic cells (DCs) in the treatment of human cancer depends on their unique role as the most potent antigen-presenting cells that are capable of priming an antitumor T-cell response. Here, we demonstrate that functional DCs can be generated from peripheral blood of patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma (RCC) by culture of monocytes/macrophages (CD14+) in autologous serum containing medium (RPMI) in the presence of granulocyte macrophage colony-stimulating factor and interleukin (IL) 4. For testing the capability of RCC-antigen uptake and processing, we loaded these DCs with autologous tumor lysate (TuLy) using liposomes, after which cytometric analysis of the DCs revealed a markedly increased expression of HLA class I antigen and a persistent high expression of class II. The immunogenicity of DC-TuLy was further tested in cultures of renal tumor infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs) cultured in low-dose IL-2 (20 Biologic Response Modifier Program units/ml). A synergistic effect of DC-TuLy and IL-2 in stimulating a T cell-dependent immune response was demonstrated by: (a) the increase of growth expansion of TILs (9.4-14.3-fold; day 21); (b) the up-regulation of the CD3+ CD56- TcR+ (both CD4+ and CD8+) cell population; (c) the augmentation of T cell-restricted autologous tumor lysis; and (d) the enhancement of IFN-gamma, tumor necrosis factor-alpha, granulocyte macrophage colony-stimulating factor, and IL-6 mRNA expression by TILs. Taken together, these data implicate that DC-TuLy can activate immunosuppressed TIL via an induction of enhanced antitumor CTL responses associated with production of Thl cells. This indicates a potential role of DC-TuLy vaccines for induction of active immunity in patients with advanced RCC.  (+info)

A possible contributory role of BK virus infection in neuroblastoma development. (7/5944)

The tumor suppressor protein p53 is aberrantly localized to the cytoplasm of neuroblastoma cells, compromising the suppressor function of this protein. Such tumors are experimentally induced in transgenic mice expressing the large tumor (T) antigen of polyomaviruses. The oncogenic mechanisms of T antigen include complex formation with, and inactivation of, the tumor suppressor protein p53. Samples from 18 human neuroblastomas and five normal human adrenal glands were examined. BK virus DNA was detected in all neuroblastomas and none of five normal adrenal glands by PCR. Using DNA in situ hybridization, polyomaviral DNA was found in the tumor cells of 17 of 18 neuroblastomas, but in none of five adrenal medullas. Expression of the large T antigen was detected in the tumor cells of 16 of 18 neuroblastomas, but in none of the five adrenal medullas. By double immunostaining BK virus T antigen and p53 was colocalized to the cytoplasm of the tumor cells. Immunoprecipitation revealed binding between the two proteins. The presence and expression of BK virus in neuroblastomas, but not in normal adrenal medulla, and colocalization and binding to p53, suggest that this virus may play a contributory role in the development of this neoplasm.  (+info)

Immunohistochemical detection of JC virus in nontumorous renal tissue of a patient with renal cancer but without progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy. (8/5944)

Activation of the proto-oncogene ras may play a critical role in the development and rapid progression of different types of human cancers, including renal cancer. It has been shown that the Ras pathway can mediate pro-survival signals in cancer cells by inhibiting cellular apoptosis. It is established that the cytoprotective enzyme heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) is over-expressed in several cancers, and may play a significant role in the growth and metastasis of tumors by inducing cell survival pathways. However, it is not known if there is an association between Ras activation and HO-1 over-expression in cancer. We have recently demonstrated that the treatment of human renal cancer cells with the immunosuppressive agent cyclosporine may activate the H-Ras pathway, and promote a rapid progression of the disease. We have also shown that HO-1 is over-expressed in human renal cancer, and plays a key role in the survival of renal cancer cells by inhibiting cellular apoptosis. Here, we wished to analyze if ...
Background 209 000 new cases of renal carcinoma are diagnosed each full year worldwide and new therapeutic focuses on are urgently needed. service and improved NMU appearance. On the other hand, reductions of HIF in VHL faulty RCC cells via siRNA of HIF- subunits or appearance of Type 2C mutant VHLh decreased NMU appearance amounts. We also display that renal tumor cells specific a practical NMU receptor (NMUR1), and that NMU stimulates migration of renal tumor cells. Results These results recommend that NMU may work in an autocrine style, advertising development of kidney tumor. Hypoxia and HIF appearance are regularly noticed in many non-renal malignancies and are connected with a poor diagnosis. Our research increases the probability that HIF might drive NMU phrase in non-renal tumours also.

Everolimus (RAD001, Afinitor) is an mTOR inhibitor FDA-approved for the treatment of patients with advanced clear cell renal cancer (RCC) after failure of treatment with sunitinib or sorafenib, or both drugs. It targets the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) complex inhibiting a serine/threonine kinase regulating PI3K/AKT signaling pathway. Previous evidences demonstrated that the activation of the chemokine receptor CXCR4 involved the mTOR pathway and that CXCR4 was overexpressed in RCC. Recently, also the deorphanized chemokine receptor CXCR7 was described in RCC and defined as an independent prognostic factor. Nevertheless, little is known about the CXCR4-CXCL12-CXCR7-induced signalling. Aim of the study was to investigate if the CXCL12/CXCR4/CXCR7 complex could transduce the signal through mTOR identifying new therapeutic targets. In human renal cancer cells (RXF393, A498) treatment with CXCL12, the CXCR4 and CXCR7 ligand, induced mTOR pathway, as demonstrated through p70S6K and eukaryotic ...
Sunitinib plays an important role in managing the metastatic renal cell cancer (mRCC). Sunitinib-induced hypothyroidism is a common side-effect of the drug.
We found that knocking down these transcripts in vitro with antisense oligonucleotide (ASO) induces selective death of several human and murine tumor cell lines without affecting viability of normal cells. The aim of this study was to evaluate in vitro and in vivo, the therapeutic value of silencing the ASncmtRNA with ASO in human cell lines/primary cultures and in A498 xenograft and Patient derived xenograft (PDX) RCC model.. Methods: For the in vitro studies we used different human renal carcinoma cell lines (786-O, Caki-1, A498) and 6 primary cultures derived from RCC patients. Knock down of the ASncmtRNA was achieved by transfection of ASO targeted to the loop region of these transcripts (Andes-1537). As control, we used ASO with unrelated sequence (NR-ASO). Cell death was evaluated with FACS by PI and tripan exclusion assay and the decrease in tumorigenicity was determined by sphere assay. The apoptosis hallmarks evaluated were Caspase activation, DNA fragmentation and phosphatidylserine ...

Kidney Cancer, also known as renal cancer is a type of cancer which forms tumours in different parts of Kidneys.. Almost all kidney cancers initially appear in the lining of tiny tubes of the Kidney and such kidney cancer is called renal cell carcinoma. The good thing about this cancer is that it can be detected earlier than any other type of cancer, and hence its spreading can be stopped. But even in the case of kidney cancer, tumours may grow large before it is detected.. The main job of Kidneys is to purify the blood by filtering harmful substances and to make urine. Thus any urine related problem can be early signs of kidney cancer. Just like any other form of cancer, even kidney cancers have some stages.. Stages of Kidney Cancer. There are various stages of Kidney Cancer. As the steps grow, Kidney Cancer becomes more dangerous. The stages are -. Stage I. A tumour is smaller than 7, which are only in the Kidney.. Stage II. A tumour is equal to or larger than 7, which are only in the ...

WEDNESDAY, Nov. 30, 2016 (HealthDay News) -- An experimental drug may show promise in treating kidney cancer, researchers say.. The drug CB-839 is the first to target an enzyme that cancer cells require to stay alive, researchers said. This stage 1 clinical trial found that the drug was effective in most patients with advanced kidney cancer when used in combination with another cancer drug called everolimus (Afinitor, Zortress).. In the 15 patients in the study, the dual treatment controlled tumors in 93 percent of the patients, who had either clear cell or papillary renal cell cancer. Tumors shrank by more than 30 percent in one patient, were stable in 13 patients, and grew by more than 20 percent in one patient.. Clear cell is the most common form of kidney cancer, accounting for 75 percent of cases, the researchers said. All 12 patients with this type of kidney cancer had their disease controlled. Papillary renal cell cancer is the next most common form of kidney cancer and accounts for 10 ...
Metastatic renal cell carcinoma is one of the most treatment-resistant malignancies and patients have dismal prognosis, said Dr. George M. Yousef, a laboratory pathologist. Identification of markers that can predict the potential of metastases will have a great impact on improvement patient outcomes.. Dr. Yousefs research appears online in the journal Molecular & Cellular Proteomics.. Kidney cancer in general is very aggressive and has a high chance of metastasis, or spreading to other organs. The five-year survival rate for metastasized kidney cancer is less than 10 per cent. Although imaging technology has led to increased detection of kidney tumours, 25 to 30 per cent have already spread by the time they are found.. Using a mass spectrometer, Dr. Yousef identified 29 proteins that change when cancer cells spread from the original site of the kidney tumour. All 29 proteins have been previously been linked to other malignancies.. Dr. Yousef said if physicians can determine which kidney ...

RCC has a unique biological profile, with a long dormancy of metastasis (3) . Some patients with RCCs believed to be curable with radical nephrectomy develop distant metastasis 5-10 years after surgery. RCC probably spreads mainly by a hematogenous mechanism. It was reported that serum microsatellite alterations were found in more than 50% of patients with RCC (16 , 17) ; this probably reflects the hematogenous mechanism by which renal tumors spread. Thus, it would be very useful to identify a tumor marker for RCC for monitoring patients after surgery and determining postoperative adjuvant chemotherapy.. It was recently reported that MN/CA9 might be useful as a diagnostic marker for RCCs (18 , 19) . The VHL tumor suppressor gene was isolated in 1993 (20) . Somatic mutations of the VHL gene have been detected in up to 60% of sporadic clear cell RCCs, the predominant form of kidney cancer (11, 12, 13) . In this study, we demonstrated that nested RT-PCR using VHL gene mutation can detect the ...

Nevertheless, in-depth understanding of their features can lead to early recognition and appropriate treatment, ultimately benefiting outcome. Despite the many obvious similarities, important distinctions exist between these tumors and their counterparts in older children. Likewise, some important distinctions exist between fetal tumors on the one hand and neonatal tumors on the other. In this article, we review the pertinent features of fetal and neonatal renal tumors and specifically point out the important individualities in their clinical management.. ...
About 6% to 7% of kidney cancers begin not in the kidney itself, but in the renal pelvis, the point where the kidney joins the ureter (the tube running from the kidney to the bladder). These tumors are called transitional cell carcinomas, and are made up of cancer cells different from those that characterize RCC. Research indicates these tumors are caused by cigarette smoking. A relatively rare form of kidney cancer, Wilms tumor (also known as nephroblastoma) accounts for about 5% to 8% of kidney tumors in children. Renal sarcoma is a rare disease of the kidneys connective tissues that accounts for less than 1% of all kidney tumors.

I need all my fans to pray for me. Doctor just told me I have cancer on my kidneys. Prayer is power, thats why Im letting the world know prayfaboosie.. Kidney cancer is rare. Only 65,000 cases of kidney cancer are reported annually in the United States. Compare that with 1.8 million lung cancer diagnoses reported in 2012. Kidney cancer accounts for only 2% of all cancer cases reported in the U.S.. CAUSES. The factors that are at high risk for kidney cancer include family history of kidney cancer, smoking, taking over the counter NSAIDs pain medicine (Aspirin, Motrin, Aleve, Naprosyn); hepatitis C, and dialysis.. SIGNS and SYMPTOMS. Signs and symptoms include abdominal distention, abdominal mass (hard or soft), abdominal pain, blood in urine.. TREATMENT Treatment for kidney cancer depends on the stage of cancer (1-4). Treatment includes chemotherapy and radiation, cancer drugs and immunotherapy, partial or total nephrectomy (removal of affected kidney).. 5-year survival rate is 73% in the ...
I am new to this forum. I have been reading quite a number of discussions on this forum and found them very informative and helpful. I am a not so old guy (61 years old) with pretty good health generally. However, last Dec, I was found to have a small renal tumor in my left kidney (about 1.6 cm) which was highly likely to be RCC. After some further imaging, I went through an open partial nephrectomy at end Jan this year. The surgery was successful. The path report shows that the tumor was stage T1a RCC clear cell grade 3. No spread. All negative margins. What I am concerned is about the grade 3. I wonder why such a small tumor could be grade 3. I will have a post-op follow-up visit with the urological surgeon and wonder what I need to discuss with him. Also I will be travelling by air back to my southeast hometown from NYC (about 2-hr flight) in a week (about 3.5 weeks after the surgery), I wonder if that should be OK. My incision looks healed, but there is still some pain inside. Thanks for ...

Renal Cell Cancer or Hypernephroma is a serious pathological condition of the kidney. Read the Causes, Symptoms, Treatment, Diagnosis, Prognosis, Complications.
The kidneys are paired bean-like organs located in the back of the abdominal cavity in the retroperitoneum. The kidneys play a large role in the regulation of wastes, electrolytes, water, blood pressure and acid-base balance throughout the body. Although it is normal to have two kidneys, it is quite possible to live with just one.. The most common type of kidney cancer is called renal cell carcinoma (RCC). Risk factors include smoking, regular use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatories such as ibuprofen and naproxen, a family history of kidney cancer, and renal disease requiring dialysis. Most commonly, kidney cancer is detected incidentally on imaging for some other purpose and has no signs or symptoms. In cases where the cancer has formed a larger tumor, a patient may experience flank pain, a mass in the abdomen, or blood in the urine that is either visable or apparent on a dipstick test. Other tests to help stage the extent of kidney cancer may include a CT scan of the abdomen and pelvis to ...
1) After treatment for kidney cancer, routine life-long surveillance is necessary with periodic assessment by a physician, blood tests and X-rays. Unfortunately there are no proven ways to prevent recurrence 2) Patients with only one kidney after removal of the other usually have no adverse effects or handicaps although contact sports and drugs that can damage the kidney should be avoided. 3) There are many factors that affect outcome after treatment for kidney cancer. The two most important prognostic factors are tumor stage and grade. Higher stage and grade implies a lower chance of cure. 4) For kidney tumors, needle biopsy is usually not indicated because more than 90 percent of solid kidney tumors are cancer and biopsies have a significant rate of false-negatives. 5) In patients without lymphadenopathy, lymph node dissection does not improve the survival. In patients with enlarged regional lymph nodes and distant metastasis, recent data suggest that lymph node dissection improves survival. ...
I investigated the influence of the phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K)Akt pathway on HSF1 activation status. Despite effecting significant up-regulation of the PI3k/Akt pathway with insulin and insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1), I did not demonstrate any change in the HSF1 trimerisation state, DNA-binding ability or nuclear localisation in renal adenocarcinoma cells (ACHN). Following treatment with insulin, a 5-fold increase in heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) mRNA and a 4-fold increase in protein expression were observed in ACHN cells; insulin-induced HO-1 expression was also demonstrated in mouse primary tubular epithelial cells. The induction of HO-1 in ACHNs was blocked by actinomycin D and cycloheximide and was abolished by the PI3K inhibitor, LY294002, but not by the inactive analogue, LY303511. Over-expressing a dominant-negative form of Akt abrogated the HO-1 inducing effects of insulin, whereas cells transfected with a constitutively active Akt construct demonstrated an increase in HO-1 ...

Hybridization with cDNA arrays was used to obtain expression profiles of 214 protein-tyrosine kinase, protein-tyrosine phosphatase, dual specificity phosphatase, and other genes for kidney carcinomas (KC) and normal kidney tissues of 34 patients and for seven carcinoma cell lines. Computer analysis revealed three clusters of genes coexpressed in KC. The proliferating- cell gene cluster included MET, VIM, MYC, TOM, PCNA. The neoangiogenesis and blood-cell gene cluster included LCK, HCK, FGR, MAIM, CSFR1, VEGF, FLT1, and KDR. The cluster corresponding to normal, differentiated kidney cells included ERBB2 (HER2) for receptor protein-tyrosine kinase, several phosphatase genes (PTPRE, PTPRB, DUSP9), and EGF. The results suggested that MET, DUSP9, PCNA, TOM, and VIM may serve as diagnostic and prognostic markers in KC. Tubulin and topoisomerase II were assumed to be promising targets for cell proliferation inhibitors in KC. ...

Discussion: Mucinous tubular and spindle cell carcinoma (MTSCC) of the kidney is a rare, recently recognized, low grade renal cell tumor. Initially described as low grade collecting duct carcinoma by MacLennan et al.,1 this tumor has been included in the World Health Organization 2004 classification as a distinct entity.2 The neoplasm is thought to originate in the distal nephron, especially Henle loop or collecting duct.3,4 Proper diagnosis and classification are important because of favorable clinical outcome in the majority of cases. The tumor shows female predominance. Histologically the neoplasm is characterized by a circumscribed lesion with interconnecting tubular and spindled architecture, low grade nuclear grade and mucinous/myxoid stroma.1-4. The cytomorphologic features of MTSCC include a cellular aspirate consisting of clusters of epithelial cells with broad trabecular and branching arrangement.5-7 The clusters can form pseudopapillary aggregates, but no true papillae are seen. ...
