Renal cell carcinoma(RCC)is one of the most common malignant tumors in the urinary system.Many patients have already been in the advanced stage at the first medical consultation and the prognosis is dismal.Metabonomics searches for differential metabolomes through high-throughput analysis of endogenous metabolites showing high potential in the early diagnosis of RCC and the investigations on its pathophysiological mechanisms.Metabonomics techniques are also useful for identifying tumor markers,which will help to enable early diagnosis and improve clinical prognosis of RCC.

Key words: renal cell carcinoma, metabolomics, metabolome, early diagnosis
