BACKGROUND Several potential predictive markers of efficacy of targeted agents in patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC) have been identified. Interindividual heterogeneity warrants further investigation. PATIENTS AND METHODS Multicenter, observational, retrospective study in patients with clear-cell mRCC treated with sunitinib. Patients(More)
The impact of such recommendations after their implementation of guidelines has not usually been evaluated. Herein, we assessed the impact and compliance with the Spanish Oncology Genitourinary Group (SOGUG) Guidelines for toxicity management of targeted therapies in metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC) in daily clinical practice. Data on 407 mRCC(More)
436 Background: Angiogenesis inhibitors have become a cornerstone in the management of clear cell renal cell carcinoma (CCRCC). Since circulating endothelial cells (CECs) counts have been proposed as surrogate biomarkers of angiogenesis, they could potentially be used to assess the activity of such drugs. METHODS An observational prospective study is(More)
Platinum-based systemic chemotherapy is considered the backbone for management of advanced urothelial carcinomas. However there is a lack of real world data on the use of such chemotherapy regimens, on patient profiles and on management after treatment failure. Fifty-one randomly selected physicians from 4 European countries registered 218 consecutive(More)
BACKGROUND Markers able to predict the response to antiangiogenics in metastatic clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) are not available. The development of new treatment options like immunotherapy are reaching the clinic; therefore, predictors of benefit from these different available treatments are increasingly needed. OBJECTIVE In this study, we(More)
