Study Description

Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) with venous tumor thrombus (VTT) arising from the primary tumor occurs in ~10% of cases and is thought to represent more advanced disease. RCC with VTT and distant metastasis provides unique opportunities to examine the origins and relative timing of tumor lesion emergence and to identify molecular correlates with disease state. We performed multi-region exome and RNA sequencing analysis of a clinical cohort of 16 RCC patients with VTT, with eight patients also having sequenced metastasis, to examine which genomic alterations, biological pathways, and evolutionary processes contribute to VTT and metastasis, and to ask whether metastasis typically arises directly from VTT or is independent of VTT.

Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
This dataset contains multi-region sequencing of 16 RCC patients with venous tumor thrombus (VTT), 11 of which were either metastatic on diagnosis or recurred with metastasis. Whole exome sequencing is available for 94 samples across all 16 patients, including 1 matched normal sample per patient, 2-3 primary tumor samples per patient, 1-2 VTT samples per patient, and 0-3 metastasis samples per patient (metastatic lesions were only sampled for 8 of the 11 metastatic patients).
