INTRODUCTION Multilocular cystic clear cell renal cell neoplasm of low malignant potential or multilocular cystic renal cell carcinoma (MCRCC) is a rare distinct subtype of clear cell renal cell carcinoma (RCC). No large series of cases have been reported to date. The present study aimed to characterize the clinical and pathologic features of MCRCC. (More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the predictors of residual tumors at repeat transurethral resection of bladder tumors (re-TURBT) for the patients with T1 bladder cancer and evaluate the effect of the residual tumors on the prognosis of the disease. METHODS We reviewed the clinical data of the patients with T1 bladder cancer who underwent re-TURBT from 2008 to(More)
AB113. Comparisons of prognosis between urothelial carcinoma of the upper urinary tract and bladder with pT3-4 diseases Objective: To compare the prognosis of locally advanced upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC) and bladder tumor (BT) in patients treated with radical surgeries. Methods: We retrospectively reviewed records on 228 consecutive UTUC(More)
Objective: A novel tumor suppressor gene (TSG) CKLF-like MARVEL transmembrane domain-containing member 3 (CMTM3) is reduced or undetectable in many kinds of cancers and relates tumor malignant features. We detected its role in prostate cancer for possibility of target therapy as accumulating evidence has shown that CMTM3 is a promising TSG for gene therapy.(More)
Objective: To determine the impact of variant histologic differentiation of patients with urothelial carcinoma of the bladder on survival after radical cystectomy. Methods: Between 2006 and 2012, 418 consecutive patients who underwent radical cystectomy with lymphadenectomy for urothelial carcinoma of the bladder were included. The patients were divided(More)
in the cohort studies. A pooled RR for an increment of one cup per day of coffee intake was 0.99 (95% CI: 0.98-1.01). i c a t e t h a t c o f f e e consumption has no remarkable effect on prostate cancer incidence. Further high quality of prospective cohort studies are required to clarify this relationship. Cite this abstract as: Xia J, Dai Y. An up-to-date(More)
Von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) disease is a rare autosomal dominant cancer syndrome. A phenomenon known as genetic anticipation has been documented in some hereditary cancer syndromes, where it was proved to relate to telomere shortening. Because studies of this phenomenon in VHL disease have been relatively scarce, we investigated anticipation in 18 Chinese VHL(More)
Low-intensity pulsed ultrasound recovers erectile function in streptozotocin-induced type I diabetic rats. Objective: To investigate the effects of growth factors fibroblast-derived extracellular matrix formation in the 3D fiber-deposited polycaprolactone (PCL) scaffold fabricated by 3D printing technique for tissue engineering applications of tunica(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of the study is to evaluate the role of cytoreductive nephrectomy (CN) with thrombectomy before targeted molecular therapy (TMT) on survival in metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC) with venous tumor thrombus. METHODS We performed a retrospective analysis of 47 patients treated in our center from April 2008 to October 2014. In the(More)
