|Condition or disease|
|Renal Cell Carcinoma|
There is a need for improved understanding of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) biology in order to characterise the mechanisms of metastatic progression, drug resistance, develop predictive & prognostic biomarkers and to identify novel therapeutic targets for this disease. The TRACERx consortium was established to achieve this using large longitudinal clinical studies, in collaboration with laboratory, advanced sequencing and informatics expertise to identify the relationships between intratumour heterogeneity and clinical outcome.
Response and Resistance: TRACERx Renal is a prospective longitudinal cohort study. It will draw on the methodology already being used within the TRACERx Lung & (planned) Breast studies as part of the TRACERx consortium.
• To calculate the proportion of patients who are in possession of a mutation in a gene of interest
The Investigators expect to collect 360 specimens by 2018 at an ongoing rate of approximately 60 per year.
The Investigators plan to collect the following biological samples:
- Blood sample/s, urine and tumour biopsy tissue taken prior to any neoadjuvant treatment that might be administered.
- Blood sample/s, urine and tumour biopsy tissue taken prior to any ablative procedure
- Blood sample/s, urine and nephrectomy tissue taken at the time of nephrectomy.
- Blood sample/s, urine and tumour tissue taken at the time of palliative metastasectomy/surgery.
- Blood and urine sample/s taken at routine follow up.
- Blood sample/s, urine and tumour biopsy taken at time of disease progression.
- Blood sample/s and/or archival tissue specimens that are no longer required by the local pathologist for diagnostic purposes
- Blood sample/s and/or archival tissue specimens that are no longer required by the local pathologist for diagnostic purposes from study patient family members

In London renal cell carcinoma patients undergo nephrectomy at centres for urological oncology, including the Royal Marsden, Guy's and St Thomas', St Georges, Charing Cross and Kings Hospitals. It is not uncommon for the same patients to undergo palliative resection for metastatic sites of disease. The majority of tissue from these resections does not undergo routine histopathological examination. As such, it is ethically feasible to use these specimens for laboratory research in the presence of patient consent. Practically, these specimens are often large, thereby offering considerable scope for a range of molecular analyses.
- To calculate the proportion of patients who are in possession of a mutation in a gene of interest [ Time Frame: From trial activation until trial closure approximately 1st September 2023 ]Outcomes will be quantified using descriptive statistics with the intention of providing hypothesis-generating data for use in future studies.
