Clear Cell Renal Cell Carcinoma

Common Name(s)

Clear Cell Renal Cell Carcinoma

Clear cell renal cell carcinoma is a cancer of the kidney.  The name "clear cell" refers to the appearance of the cancer cells when viewed with a microscope.   Clear cell renal cell carcinoma occurs when cells in the kidney quickly increase in number, creating a lump (mass).  Though the exact cause of clear cell renal cell carcinoma is unknown, smoking, the excessive use of certain medications, and several genetic predisposition conditions (such as von Hippel Lindau syndrome) may contribute to the development of this type of cancer.  Treatment often begins with surgery to remove as much of the cancer as possible, and may be followed by radiation therapy, chemotherapy, biological therapy, or targeted therapy.

Validation of housekeeping gene and impact on normalized gene expression in clear cell renal cell carcinoma: critical reassessment of YBX3/ZONAB/CSDA expression.
 

Author(s): S├ębastien Dupasquier, Anne-Sophie Delmarcelle, Etienne Marbaix, Jean-Pierre Cosyns, Pierre J Courtoy, Christophe E Pierreux

Journal:

 

YBX3/ZONAB/CSDA is an epithelial-specific transcription factor acting in the density-based switch between proliferation and differentiation. Our laboratory reported overexpression of YBX3 in clear cell renal cell arcinoma (ccRCC), as part of a wide study of YBX3 regulation in vitro ...

Gene and isoform expression signatures associated with tumor stage in kidney renal clear cell carcinoma.
 

Author(s): Qi Liu, Shilin Zhao, Pei-Fang Su, Shyr Yu

Journal: BMC Syst Biol. 2013 ;7 Suppl 5():S7.

 

Identification of expression alternations between early and late stage cancers is helpful for understanding cancer development and progression. Much research has been done focusing on stage-dependent gene expression profiles. In contrast, relatively fewer studies on isoform expression ...

Tumor necrosis factor receptor 2: its contribution to acute cellular rejection and clear cell renal carcinoma.
 

Author(s): Jun Wang, Rafia S Al-Lamki

Journal: Biomed Res Int. 2013 ;2013():821310.

 

Tumor necrosis factor receptor 2 (TNFR2) is a type I transmembrane glycoprotein and one of the two receptors that orchestrate the complex biological functions of tumor necrosis factor (TNF, also designed TNF- ╬▒ ). Accumulating experimental evidence suggests that TNFR2 plays an important ...

Targeted therapies and the treatment of non-clear cell renal cell carcinoma.
 

Author(s): J Bellmunt, J Dutcher

Journal: Ann. Oncol.. 2013 Jul;24(7):1730-40.

 

Targeted therapies have shown profound effects on the outcome of patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma (RCC). However, the optimal treatment for RCC of non-clear cell histology (nccRCC)-typically excluded from trials of targeted agents-remains uncertain.
