Abstract

Gene expression profiling using a kidney cancer relevant cDNA array can differentiate between aggressive and indolent clear cell renal cell carcinomas. Gene expression profile results may be most useful for unilateral clear cell renal cell carcinoma when results are discordant with predictions of tumor behavior based on standard clinicopathological features. In addition, gene expression profiling can provide prognostic information that may help characterize tumors of unknown clinical stage, such as bilateral metachronous clear cell renal cell carcinoma.
