Formatted Abstract/Summary
Background
Metastatic renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is resistant to conventional cancer therapies, sometimes via faulty apoptotic pathways. We aimed to identify and characterize new apoptosis-regulatory genes in RCC treated with successful cancer therapies.

Conclusion
TRAF, CARD and CIDE gene families contain important apoptosis-regulating gene members that have shown potential for improving outcome in other cancers. They have also been used as cancer biomarkers. These gene families may have the same potential in RCCs. This important development needs further analysis.
