The article offers information on the research conducted by the authors related to the correlation between the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and chromosome 7 polysomy and poor prognostic parameters in clear cell renal cell carcinoma (CCRCC). It states that the study aimed at analyzing protein expression of EGFR by immunohistochemistry and to investigate the role of EGFR gene copy number changes in relation to EGFR overexpression in this type of renal cancer.
