Kidney Cancer

Kidneys help the body filter blood and remove waste from the body. Small tubes in the kidney, called tubules, help with this process. Renal cell carcinoma (RCC), the most common type of kidney cancer, occurs when growths, or tumors, develop in these tubes.

Standard medical care for RCC can include surgery to remove part or all of your kidney (nephrectomy) and chemotherapy or radiation. When RCC spreads, however, it can be difficult to treat. That’s why new therapies are needed. Learn more about the investigational study therapy and about participation in the CMN-001-1 study.
