Researchers at the University of Texas (UT) Southwestern Medical Center have developed what could be the most complete catalogue of clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC), the most common type of kidney cancer. This cancer is very diverse in character (heterogenous) and there is high variability in tumours. This heterogeneity makes is difficult to diagnose how aggressive the disease might be. This new catalogue can be found online at EBioMedicine, and will enable clinicians to better predict an individual patient’s prognosis, including whether and how the cancer may evolve and spread.
