The purposes of this study were to determine the prevalence of in-phase signal intensity loss on dual-echo gradient-echo MRI in solid renal masses using visual and quantitative techniques and to test for any association between in-phase signal intensity loss and pathologic classification. MATERIALS AND METHODS. The renal MRI studies of 177 patients (192 solid masses consisting of 166 renal cell carcinomas [RCCs], four malignant non-RCCs, and 22 benign tumors) were qualitatively reviewed by two blinded readers for visual evidence of relative in-phase signal intensity loss. For lesions without visual evidence, ...
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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
Mucinous tubular and spindle cell carcinoma (MTSCC) is rare in renal cell carcinoma (RCC) and usually demonstrates a low nuclear grade and a better prognosis compared with other RCCs. The authors present a case report of MTSCC containing an area of Fuhrman nuclear grade 3, in addition to an area with a micropapillary pattern. An 82-year-old man consulted a hospital due to macrohematuria, and a tumor in the right kidney was detected. The tumor was resected and histologically examined. The tumor consisted of various growth patterns: Elongated tubular structure, a papillary structure containing a micropapillary pattern and solid pattern with spindle cells ...

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 ...
Kidneys are not exempted from having cancer. Today, a lot of people suffer from kidney Cancer and are taking various medications as treatment.

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 ...
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 ...

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. ...

Immunotherapy: Immunotherapy stimulates your immune system to attack cancer. Hopefully, the immune system will eliminate cancer in much the same way it eliminates the flu. The most commonly used immunotherapy agents are interleukin-2 (IL-2) and interferon. Until recently, IL-2 was the only effective therapy approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of metastatic kidney cancer. Approximately 20 percent of patients respond to immunotherapy with some degree of tumor regression. Approximately 5-7 percent of patients have complete cancer regression-most of those patients have been treated with the high dose IL-2 protocol. Many different immunotherapy regimens have been studied. One of the most effective regimens is high dose bolus IL-2, which requires inpatient hospitalization. During the initial hospitalization, intravenous IL-2 is administered over five days. The patient is usually allowed to go home for a rest period of five to10 days. Then, the patient is readmitted to ...
