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.
A synthetic long-acting agonist of GONADOTROPIN-RELEASING HORMONE. Goserelin is used in treatments of malignant NEOPLASMS of the prostate, uterine fibromas, and metastatic breast cancer.
Antineoplastic Agents, Hormonal
Antineoplastic agents that are used to treat hormone-sensitive tumors. Hormone-sensitive tumors may be hormone-dependent, hormone-responsive, or both. A hormone-dependent tumor regresses on removal of the hormonal stimulus, by surgery or pharmacological block. Hormone-responsive tumors may regress when pharmacologic amounts of hormones are administered regardless of whether previous signs of hormone sensitivity were observed. The major hormone-responsive cancers include carcinomas of the breast, prostate, and endometrium; lymphomas; and certain leukemias. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual 1994, p2079)
A synthetic retinoid that is used orally as a chemopreventive against prostate cancer and in women at risk of developing contralateral breast cancer. It is also effective as an antineoplastic agent.
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).
The purpose of this study is to determine whether imaging with 18F-choline PET/CT can provide information that may help guide subsequent investigational or clinical treatments for patients...
This is an open-label, multicenter Phase I/II study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of single-agent AT-101 in men with hormone-refractory prostate cancer.
The primary objective is to determine the efficacy of docetaxel plus carboplatin as first line treatment in patients with hormone refractory prostate cancer.
The purpose of this study is to determine the biochemical response rate (PSA) to single agent RAD001 in patients with metastatic hormone-refractory prostate cancer.
This investigational study involves treatment with an Ad/PSA vaccine for men with prostate cancer who present with evidence of hormone refractory metastatic disease.
OBJECTIVE * To investigate, by genotyping CASP8 (-652 6N del/ins) and CASP9 (-1263 A > G; -293 19N del/ins), whether inactivation of apoptosis by genetic polymorphism of caspases 8 and 9 play an integ...
Background and purpose The criteria for selecting patients who may benefit from surgery of spinal cord compression in metastatic prostate cancer are poorly defined. We therefore studied patients opera...
The FDA has approved 2 new treatments for castration-resistant (formerly called hormone-refractory) prostate cancer. Sipuleucel-T (Provenge - Dendreon) s the first immunotherapy approved for treatment...
PURPOSE:: Despite increasing evidence that estrogen signaling has a key role in prostate cancer development and progression, few studies have focused on the estrogen pathway in the transition from hor...
BACKGROUND: miR-21 has been recognized as an "onco-microRNA" with the activity of negatively modulating the expression of tumor-suppressor genes. However, its role in prostate cancer (CaP) has not bee...
