Study Description

Intratumoral heterogeneity (ITH) challenges the molecular characterization of clear cell renal cell Carcinoma (ccRCC) with percutaneous biopsies and is a confounding factor in selection of molecular-targeted versus immune-based therapy. Magnetic Resonance (MR) Imaging can noninvasively assess the spatial landscape of the entire tumor. To validate MRI for ITH assessment, we implemented a radiogenomic platform through a systematic imaging based co-localization approach for multi region tissue acquisition from single tumors. We investigated if the spatial changes in imaging can predict the molecular changes using transcriptome and histopathological correlatives. Our study confirmed imaging heterogeneity as a predictor of molecular heterogeneity in ccRCC.

Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
We used 200 ccRCC samples from 51 tumors to simultaneously isolate DNA, RNA, and protein according to established protocol. RNA quality was assessed using an Agilent Bioanalyzer, and total RNA with RIN>7 was used for further RNA sequencing. 184 ccRCC samples from 49 tumors passing initial quality control underwent RNA sequencing at Admera Health Inc. (Genohub Inc., Austin, TX). RNA sequencing libraries were prepared using the Illumina TruSeq Stranded mRNA high throughput (HT) sample ... (Show More)
