‘Exceptional’ Patients With RCC Have Distinct Characteristics
 
 The text of this presentation and paper at the international kidney cancer symposia is far too thick to put here. What was found was that they when they  went back and looked at 3-4 specimens of cancers and found those who had disease that did not respond to anything (typical) and those that were incredible and were still responding at 3 years, the second group  had far more genetic alterations and molecular changes  within the cancer cells and the supporting tissue  network This will lead to large scale assessment of kidney cancer tissue and in time , targeted drugs – amazing and a very big deal for a non responsive cancer
