Brian Rini: KIM-1 is a novel prognostic and predictive biomarker in RCC

Toni Choueiri shared a post by Brian Rini, Chief of Clinical Trials at Vanderbilt University, on X/Twitter:

KIM1 seems to be quite a promising kidney cancer biomarker from screening, recurrence, and selecting therapy. Our team Harvard Medical School, Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute has been working on this as part of DF/HCC for decades (Dr. Bonventre) + past 5 years in RCC with Wenxin Xu leading the charge and his mentors (Bhatt/McDermott/Bonventre).”

Quoting Brian Rini’s post:

KIM-1 is a novel prognostic and predictive biomarker in the adjuvant RCC space. Great data at ASCO24 and stellar discussion by Wenxin Xu (Academy of Kidney Cancer Investigators member!). We discuss the KIM-1 data with Laurence Albiges.”
