Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A glycoprotein that is a kallikrein-like serine proteinase and an esterase, produced by epithelial cells of both normal and malignant prostate tissue. It is an important marker for the diagnosis of prostate cancer.
Prostatic Secretory Proteins
Proteins secreted by the prostate gland. The major secretory proteins from the human prostate gland include PROSTATE-SPECIFIC ANTIGEN, prostate-specific acid phosphatase, prostate-specific membrane antigen, and prostate-specific protein-94.
A synthetic non-aromatizable androgen and anabolic steroid. It binds strongly to the androgen receptor and has therefore also been used as an affinity label for this receptor in the prostate and in prostatic tumors.
Ultrasound, High-intensity Focused, Transrectal
Tissue ablation of the PROSTATE performed by ultrasound from a transducer placed in the RECTUM. The procedure is used to treat prostate cancer (PROSTATIC NEOPLASMS) and benign prostatic hypertrophy (PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIA).
Transurethral Resection Of Prostate
Removal of all or part of the PROSTATE, often using a cystoscope and/or resectoscope passed through the URETHRA.
OBJECTIVES: We analyzed the efficacy of additional antiandrogens as second- and third-line treatments after the failure of initial androgen deprivation monotherapy. METHODS: This retrospective study i...
In this paper we studied the in vivo neoadjuvant Androgen Deprivation Therapy (ADT) effect on the expression of TGF-β1 and its receptor Tβ-RII. Mechanisms of androgen dependence are critical to unde...
Castration resistance occurs in most patients with metastatic hormone-sensitive prostate cancer who are receiving androgen-deprivation therapy. Replacing androgens before progression of the disease is...
Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among men in North America and is a leading cause of death. Standard treatments include androgen deprivation therapy, which leads to improved clin...
Great advances in tissue androgen analysis using liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) have made it possible to evaluate the tissue androgen content from a single needle prostate b...
RATIONALE: Androgens can cause the growth of prostate cancer cells. Androgen deprivation therapy may stop the adrenal glands from making androgens. PURPOSE: This randomized phase III tria...
The purpose of this study is to find out if androgen deprivation therapy affects insulin, cardiac risk factors such as cholesterol level, and body fat and muscle.
Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among males in the U.S. More than 220,000 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in the USA this year and more that 31,000 will...
RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Androgens can cause the growth of prostate cancer cells. Androgen deprivation therapy, such as goserelin, leuproli...
This study is being conducted to compare the effect of an investigational drug versus placebo on bone loss in men with prostate cancer who are receiving Androgen Deprivation Therapy (ADT)....
