Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


We searched for a new therapeutic target for advanced clear-cell renal-cell carcinoma (ccRCC), the most common kidney cancer. The DNA damage response (DDR) pathway was investigated in 312 cases of localized ccRCC from The Cancer Genome Atlas database. Alterations in the DDR pathway are associated with increased recurrence in locally advanced ccRCC and may be a potential therapeutic target.
