A preliminary study on the association between epithelial-mesenchymal transition and circulating tumor cells in renal cell carcinoma.

Transl Androl Urol 2022 Apr;11(4):460-471

Shandong Cancer Hospital and Institute, Shandong First Medical University and Shandong Academy of Medical Sciences, Jinan, China.

Background: Circulating tumor cells (CTCs) are considered useful prognostic factors for various cancers, and in 2014, our research group conducted a comparative experiment of CTC detection in patients with renal cell cancer (RCC). However, the reason for the low detection rate of CTCs in cancer patients using the CellSearch system is still unknown, although it has been hypothesized to be attributed to the likelihood that CTCs undergoing epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) do not express the CTC biomarkers cytokeratin (CK)8/18/19 or epithelial cell adhesion molecule (EpCAM). The overall aim of the current study was to investigate the expression levels of CK8/18/19 and EpCAM in relation to the EMT biomarkers vimentin and E-cadherin in patients with RCC. Read More

ACR Appropriateness Criteria® Post-Treatment Follow-up and Active Surveillance of Clinically Localized Renal Cell Carcinoma: 2021 Update.

J Am Coll Radiol 2022 05;19(5S):S156-S174

Specialty Chair, University of Alabama at Birmingham, Birmingham, Alabama; and Chair, ACR Appropriateness Committee.

Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) accounts for most malignant renal tumors and is considered the most lethal of all urologic cancers. For follow-up of patients with treated or untreated RCC and those with neoplasms suspected to represent RCC, radiologic imaging is the most valuable component of surveillance, as most relapses and cases of disease progression are identified when patients are asymptomatic. Understanding the strengths and limitations of the various imaging modalities for the detection of disease, recurrence, or progression is essential when planning follow-up regimens. Read More
