PURPOSE The types of epithelial renal tumors are clear cell, types I and II papillary, chromophobe and oncocytoma. We identified the genetic basis of these different types of kidney cancer to provide better methods for early diagnosis of this disease as well as provide the foundation for the development of molecular therapeutic approaches. MATERIALS AND METHODS To identify the genetic basis of kidney cancer we studied families with an inherited predisposition to kidney cancer. Families in… Expand
