A new approach to estimate time-to-cure from cancer registries data.

Cure models have been adapted to net survival context to provide important indicators from population-based cancer data, such as the cure fraction and the time-to-cure. However existing methods for computing time-to-cure suffer from some limitations.


Radioligand therapy of metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer: current approaches.

Prostate Cancer is the forth most common type of cancer. Prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) is anchored in the cell membrane of prostate epithelial cells. PSMA is highly expressed on prostate epithelial cells and strongly up-regulated in prostate cancer. Therefore it is an appropriate target for diagnostic and therapy of prostate cancer and its metastases. This article discusses several articles on radionuclide treatments in prostate cancer and the results on PSMA therapy with either beta or alpha em...

Developing new age-specific prostate-specific antigen thresholds for testing for prostate cancer.

To examine whether age-related reference ranges for "normal" prostate-specific antigen (PSA) change (determined in men without prostate cancer) can be used to identify men at high risk of having prostate cancer.


The Role of Testosterone Therapy in the Setting of Prostate Cancer.

The role of testosterone in the development of prostate cancer and the safety of testosterone therapy (TTh) after prostate cancer treatment, or in the setting of active surveillance, remains controversial. There are many concerns about using TTh in men, particularly those with a history of prostate cancer, ranging from a possible increased risk of cardiovascular disease to cancer progression or recurrence. With many prostate cancer patients living longer, and hypogonadism having significant morbidity, much ...

Modelling human prostate cancer: Rat models.

Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in men, affecting approximately 1.1 million men worldwide. In this way, the study of prostate cancer biopathology and the study of new potential therapies is of paramount importance. Several rat models were developed over the years to study prostate cancer, namely spontaneous models, chemically-induced models, implantation of cancer cell lines and genetically-engineered models. This manuscript aimed to provide the readers with an overview of the rat models of...

The San Francisco Cancer Initiative: A Community Effort To Reduce The Population Burden Of Cancer.

The great potential for reducing the cancer burden and cancer disparities through prevention and early detection is unrealized at the population level. A new community-based coalition, the San Francisco Cancer Initiative (SF CAN), focuses on the city and county of San Francisco, where cancer is the leading cause of death. SF CAN is an integrated, cross-sector collaboration launched in November 2016. It brings together the San Francisco Department of Public Health; the University of California, San Francisc...

Androgen receptor-independent prostate cancer: an emerging clinical entity.

Androgen deprivation therapy remains the backbone of prostate cancer treatment given its pivotal role in the pathogenesis of prostate cancer. The growing knowledge of androgen receptor-independent (i.e. AR-null) prostate cancer cells, however, might advance the treatment paradigm of prostate cancer particularly in castration resistance stage by targeting these pathways. Here, we examined the results of two recent studies, published in Cancer Cell by Bluemn and Shukla et al., and possible clinical impact of ...

Next-generation prostate cancer risk calculator for primary care physicians.

Current prostate cancer risk calculators are limited in impact because only a probability of having prostate cancer is provided. We developed the next generation of prostate cancer risk calculator that incorporates life expectancy in order to better evaluate prostate cancer risk in context to a patient's age and comorbidity.

Incidental Metastatic Melanoma Identified on 68Ga-Prostate-Specific Membrane Antigen PET/CT for Metastatic Prostate Cancer.

A 78-year-old man with a history of surgically treated prostate cancer and melanoma underwent Ga-prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) PET/CT for biochemical recurrence of his prostate cancer. This revealed locoregionally recurrent prostate cancer and a separate PSMA-avid nodule in his left arm. Subsequent F-FDG PET/CT and excision confirmed this to be an in-transit melanoma metastasis. Prostate-specific membrane antigen PET/CT has become a widely used and valuable tool in the assessment of prostate can...

Contemporary Incidence & Outcomes of Prostate Cancer Lymph Node Metastases.

The incidence of localized prostate cancer has declined with shifts in prostate cancer screening. While recent population-based studies demonstrate a stable incidence of loco-regional prostate cancer, this categorized organ-confined, extra-prostatic and lymph node positive disease together. The contemporary incidence of prostate cancer with pelvic lymph node metastases (PLNM) however, remains unknown.

Repeat prostate-specific antigen test before prostate biopsy: a 20% decrease in prostate specific antigen values is associated with a reduced risk of cancer and particularly of high-grade cancer.

To analyse the impact of repeating PSA levels on prostate biopsy decision in a cohort of men undergoing prostate biopsy.

Immunotherapy for Prostate Cancer: Where Do We Go From Here?-PART 1: Prostate Cancer Vaccines.

Immunotherapies have emerged as a revolutionary modality for cancer treatment, and a variety of immune-based approaches are currently being investigated in the field of prostate cancer. Despite the 2010 approval of sipuleucel-T, subsequent progress in prostate cancer immunotherapy development has been limited by disappointing results with novel vaccination approaches and by prostate cancer's general resistance to immune checkpoint blockade. Nevertheless, there remains strong preclinical and clinical evidenc...

Mediterranean diet after prostate cancer diagnosis and urinary and sexual functioning: The health professionals follow-up study.

Men with prostate cancer often experience urinary and sexual dysfunction after treatment. Previous studies have demonstrated a relationship between dietary factors and these symptoms among men with diabetes or metabolic syndrome. However, there are limited data on whether diet after prostate cancer diagnosis, including a Mediterranean dietary pattern, affects urinary and sexual function among prostate cancer survivors.

Using Medicare Claims to Examine Long-term Prostate Cancer Risk of Finasteride in the Prostate Cancer Prevention Trial.

Investigators have used administrative claims to better understand cancer outcomes when a research question cannot feasibly be examined within a study. The Prostate Cancer Prevention Trial (PCPT) showed that seven years of finasteride reduced prostate cancer (PC) risk by 25% in men age 55 years or older. However, it was unclear whether the observed reduction in PC for finasteride participants would be maintained after finasteride discontinuation.

Evaluating a psychosocial intervention for men with prostate cancer and their partners: Outcomes and lessons learned from a randomized controlled trial.

This study evaluated the process and outcome of a psychosocial intervention for men with prostate cancer and their partners. As more men survive prostate cancer, they and their partners need help and support to help them cope with the physical and psychosocial effects of the disease and treatment. There is a lack of psychosocial interventions for men with prostate cancer and their partners.

Thinking about one's own death after prostate-cancer diagnosis.

Prostate-cancer diagnosis increases the risk for psychiatric morbidity and suicide. Thoughts about one's own death could indicate need for psychiatric care among men with localized prostate cancer. We studied the prevalence and predictors of thoughts about own death among men with prostate cancer.

Prostate cancer: diagnostic criteria and role of immunohistochemistry.

The diagnosis of prostate cancer is based on microscopic criteria. Presently, prostate needle biopsy interpretation can be a challenge for the pathologist due to the increased number of specimens with limited amount of suspicious glands and minimal atypia. It is critical for the pathologist to have an organized methodical approach when considering the morphological features enabling a definitive diagnosis of prostate cancer. Although several diagnostic criteria and supportive features have been advocated, o...

New progress in precision diagnosis of prostate cancer.

The morbidity of prostate cancer presents an obvious ascending tendency. Early diagnosis plays a crucial role in the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer. However, the methods widely used for its diagnosis mostly lack high specificity and sensitivity. This review introduces four methods for the detection of prostate cancer, which are PCA3 and TMPRSS2:ERG, the Kallikrein panel, MRGB, and the STHLM3 model, all based on molecular biology and superior to the traditional methods in both specificity and sen...

Brain metastases from prostate cancer: A single-center experience.

Metastases from prostate cancer to the brain are very unusual and very few case series have been reported in the literature. Present study was performed to assess the proportion of brain metastasis from prostate cancer among other brain metastasis in men, to evaluate the distribution, pattern and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) appearance of these metastatic lesions, and prognosis of brain metastasis in patients with prostate cancer.

Prostate Cancer Lytic Bone Metastases Imaged With 18F-Fluorocholine PET/CT.

A 76-year-old man with metastatic prostate cancer and back pain was referred for palliative radiotherapy. Staging F-fluorocholine PET/CT scan revealed fluorocholine-avid prostate mass, extensive lymphadenopathy, lung nodules, and extensive osteolytic lesions throughout the axial skeleton. Prostate cancer bone metastases are predominantly sclerotic in nature. We present F-fluorocholine PET/CT imaging of prostate cancer with very rare lytic bone metastases.

Promoter hypermethylation of SOX11 correlates with adverse clinicopathological features of human prostate cancer.

Currently available tools for early diagnosis and prognosis of prostate cancer lack sufficient accuracy. There is a need to identify novel biomarkers for this common malignancy. SOX family genes play an important role in embryogenesis and are also implicated in various cancers. SOX11 has been recently recognized as a potential tumour suppressor that is downregulated in prostate cancer. We hypothesized that hypermethylation may be responsible for SOX11 silencing in human prostate cancer. The aim of the study...

Concordance of Non-Low-Risk Disease Among Pairs of Brothers With Prostate Cancer.

Purpose Prostate cancer among first-degree relatives is a strong risk factor for diagnosis of prostate cancer, and the contribution of heritable factors in prostate cancer etiology is high. We investigated how the concordance of non-low-risk prostate cancer among brothers is affected by their genetic relation. Methods We identified 4,262 pairs of brothers with prostate cancer in the Prostate Cancer Database Sweden. Their cancers were categorized as low risk (Gleason score ≤ 6; clinical stage T1-2, Nx/N0, ...
