Metastatic renal cell carcinoma is resistant to current therapies. The phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K)/Akt signaling cascade induces cell growth, cell transformation, and neovascularization. We evaluated whether targeting this pathway could be of therapeutic value against human renal cell carcinoma. The activation of the PI3K/Akt pathway and its role in(More)
BACKGROUND Human clear cell renal cell carcinoma (CRCC) remains resistant to therapies. Recent advances in Hypoxia Inducible Factors (HIF) molecular network led to targeted therapies, but unfortunately with only limited clinical significance. Elucidating the molecular processes involved in kidney tumorigenesis and resistance is central to the development of(More)
Metastatic renal cell carcinoma (RCC) remains refractory to therapies. The nuclear factor-kappaB (NF-kappaB) transcription factor is involved in cell growth, cell motility, and vascularization. We evaluated whether targeting NF-kappaB could be of therapeutic and prognostic values in human RCC. The activation of the NF-kappaB pathway in human RCC cells and(More)
Clear cell renal carcinoma (CCRC) is responsible for 2% of cancer-related deaths worldwide and is resistant to virtually all therapies, indicating the importance of a search for new therapeutic targets. Parathyroid hormone-related protein (PTHrP) is a polyprotein derived from normal and malignant cells that regulates cell growth. In the current study, we(More)
Functional inactivation of the von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) tumor suppressor gene occurs in 40-80% of human conventional renal cell carcinomas (RCCs). We showed recently that VHL-deficient RCCs expressed large amounts of parathyroid hormone-related protein (PTHrP), and that PTHrP, acting through the PTH1 receptor (PTH1R), plays an essential role in tumor growth.(More)
The objective of the present work was to establish a large panel of preclinical models of human renal cell carcinoma (RCC) directly from patients, faithfully reproducing the biological features of the original tumor. RCC tissues (all stages/subtypes) were collected for 8 years from 336 patients undergoing surgery, xenografted subcutaneously in nude mice,(More)
Collecting duct carcinoma (CDC) is a kidney cancer subtype that is thought to arise from principal cells in distal parts of the collecting ducts. Some studies suggested an overlap of CDC with upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC), making the pathological diagnosis challenging. Herein, we performed for the first time transcriptome sequencing of CDC and(More)
