Mutation linked to kidney cancer20th January 2011

A mutated gene has been found in a third of patients and the study, published in the journal Nature, shows the gene is involved in packaging DNA in the body's cells. The Institute of Cancer Research said the study provided a better picture of how the cancer formed and paved the way for future therapies. The cancer claims nearly 4,000 lives a year in the UK.
