Four distinct subgroups of clear cell renal cancer identified

Using gene profiling, a recent study published in Cancer Discovery has identified¬†four distinct molecular subgroups associated with response to treatment with sunitinib or pazopanib and survival. The findings demonstrate the effects of the presence of immune cells and angiogenesis on the effectiveness of sunitinib and pazopanib against the cancer, and are important for individualised decision-making.

The implications of germline mutations in kidney cancer

A recent article in JAMA Oncology, published this month, discusses the use of gene sequencing to identify drug targets in tumours. Gene sequencing has led to incidental findings of germline mutations in patients; changes in the genes of the germ cells that form eggs and sperm and are eventually passed on to the next generation.
