Medical Xpress: Study shows Nox4 protein may predict untreatable kidney cancer
A team of researchers confirmed the role of a certain protein in the development of high-grade kidney cancer. The researchers showed that a higher level of the protein can be used as a marker to predict which tumors will develop treatment resistance and progress more rapidly. Dharam Kaushik, MD, associate professor of urology, led the study published in the journal Translational Research. Dr. Kaushik is also a genitourinary oncologic surgeon at the Mays Cancer Center.
