Risk of renal cell carcinoma among kidney transplant recipients in the US
from American Journal of Transplantation (login required)
Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is a common malignancy following kidney transplantation. We describe RCC risk and examine RCC risk factors among US kidney recipients (1987–2010). The Transplant Cancer Match Study links the US transplant registry with 15 cancer registries. Standardized incidence ratios (SIRs) were used to compare RCC risk (overall and for clear cell and papillary subtypes) to the general population. Associations with risk factors were assessed using Cox models.
