The healthy prostate contains the highest concentration of mobile zinc for all soft tissues in the body. As this level decreases dramatically during the initial development of prostate cancer, in vivo detection of prostate zinc content may be applied for diagnosis of prostate cancer. Using 19F ion chemical exchange saturation transfer magnetic resonance imaging (iCEST MRI) and TF-BAPTA as a fluorinated Zn-binding probe with micromolar sensitivity, we show here that iCEST MRI is able to differentiate between...
Prostate cancer (PC) suspicion is based on prostate-specific antigen (PSA) and digital rectal examination (DRE). Multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI) increases prostate biopsy (PBx) specificity and sensitivity for detection of aggressive PC.
Pathologic grading plays a key role in prostate cancer risk stratification and treatment selection, traditionally assessed from systemic core needle biopsies sampled throughout the prostate gland. Multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI) has become a well-established clinical tool for detecting and localizing prostate cancer. However, both pathologic and radiologic assessment suffer from poor reproducibility among readers. Artificial intelligence (AI) methods show promise in aiding the detection a...
Prostate specific antigen (PSA) screening for prostate cancer has recently been challenged due to poor sensitivity. A number of conditions elevate PSA besides prostate cancer with benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH) being most common. The objective of this study was to assess the positive predictive value (PPV) of PSA and PSA density (PSAD) for prostate cancer risk following Holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP).
Combining Prostate Imaging Reporting and Data System, Histogram Analysis, and Prostate-Specific Antigen Density to Determine the Risk of Prostate Cancer in Patients With Prostate-Specific Antigen of 4 to 20 ng/mL.
To develop regression models using Prostate Imaging Reporting and Data System (PI-RADS), histogram analysis, and prostate-specific antigen density (PSAD) to predict prostate cancer (PCa) and clinically significant PCa (CSPCa) in patients with prostate-specific antigen of 4 to 20 ng/mL.
Prostate cancer that recurs after initial treatment inevitably progresses to castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC), the lethal stage of the disease. Despite improvements in outcomes from next generation androgen receptor (AR)-axis inhibitors, CRPC remains incurable. Therapeutic strategies to target AR antagonist resistance are urgently needed to improve outcomes for men with this lethal form of prostate cancer.
Prostate biopsy guided by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is increasingly used to obtain tissue from men with suspected prostate cancer (PC).
There has been recent interest in nonproton MRI including hyperpolarized carbon-13 ( C) imaging. Prostate cancer has been shown to have a higher tissue sodium concentration (TSC) than normal tissue. Sodium ( Na) and C nuclei have a frequency difference of only 1.66 MHz at 3T, potentially enabling Na imaging with a C-tuned coil and maximizing the metabolic information obtained from a single study.
The purpose of this study is to provide a concise summary of the current experience with Ga-labeled prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA)-11 imaging of prostate and nonprostate malignancies and benign conditions. PSMA is overexpressed in prostate cancer and in the neovasculature of many other malignancies. The relevance of PSMA as a biologic target, coupled with advances in the design, synthesis, and evaluation of PSMA-based radionuclides for imaging and therapy, is anticipated to play a major role in ...
Dr Crea's lab studies the role of epigenetic factors and noncoding RNA in cancer initiation and progression. While working at the National Cancer Institute (USA), Dr Crea has demonstrated that polycomb-targeting drugs eradicate prostate cancer stem cells. While working at the BC Cancer Agency (Canada), Dr Crea discovered and patented , a long noncoding RNA involved in prostate cancer metastasis. Dr Crea has received awards from the American Society of Clinical Oncology, from the Prostate Cancer Program a...
The use of a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-directed diagnostic pathway in men at first prostate cancer work-up has been introduced within European prostate cancer guidelines. Differences in MRI-directed pathway yields need elaboration.
Localising occult prostate cancer metastasis with advanced imaging techniques (LOCATE trial): a prospective cohort, observational diagnostic accuracy trial investigating whole-body magnetic resonance imaging in radio-recurrent prostate cancer.
Accurate whole-body staging following biochemical relapse in prostate cancer is vital in determining the optimum disease management. Current imaging guidelines recommend various imaging platforms such as computed tomography (CT), Technetium 99 m (Tc) bone scan and F-choline and recently Ga-PSMA positron emission tomography (PET) for the evaluation of the extent of disease. Such approach requires multiple hospital attendances and can be time and resource intensive. Recently, whole-body magnetic resonance i...
An online clinical information system, called Predictive Research Online System Prostate Cancer Tasks PROSPeCT), was developed to enable users to query the Alberta Prostate Cancer Registry database hosted by the Alberta Prostate Cancer Research Initiative. To deliver high-quality patient treatment, prostate cancer clinicians and researchers require a user-friendly system that offers an easy and efficient way to obtain relevant and accurate information about patients from a robust and expanding database.
Prostate cancer is most commonly imaged through a combination of magnetic resonance imaging, x-ray computed tomography, and Tc-methylene diphosphonate bone scan. These conventional imaging modalities, however, suffer from limited sensitivity and specificity for the detection of disease. This can lead to disease understaging and the improper selection of treatment. To address this problem, a variety of novel radiotracers for positron emission tomography (PET) imaging have been developed. This includes agents...
Risk prediction models and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the prostate can reduce unnecessary biopsies and overdiagnosis of low-risk prostate cancer. However, it is unclear how these tools should be used in concert.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) guidance improves the accuracy of prostate biopsy for the detection of clinically significant prostate cancer, but the optimal use of such guidance is not yet clear.
WNT signaling is implicated in embryonic development, and in adult tissue homeostasis, while its deregulation is evident in disease. This study investigates the unique roles of canonical WNT10B in both normal prostate development and prostate cancer (PCa) progression.
Castrate resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) accounts for almost all prostate cancer (PCa) deaths. Aberrant activation of ERK/MEK and PI3K/AKT signaling pathways plays an important role in subsets of patients with CRPC. The role of protocadherin 7 (PCDH7) in modulating these signaling pathways is investigated for the first time in PCa in the present investigation.
The current diagnostic pathway for patients with suspected prostate cancer (PCa) includes prostate biopsy. A large proportion of individuals who undergo biopsy have either no PCa or low-risk disease that does not require treatment. Unnecessary biopsies may potentially be avoided with prebiopsy imaging.
Laminin peptides influence cancer biology. We investigated the role of a laminin-derived peptide C16 regulating invadopodia molecules in human prostate cancer cells (DU145). C16 augmented invadopodia activity of DU145 cells, and stimulated expression Tks4, Tks5, cortactin, and membrane-type matrix metalloproteinase 1. Reactive oxygen species generation is also related to invadopodia formation. This prompted us to address whether C16 would induce reactive oxygen species generation in DU145 cells. Quantitativ...

POH1, a member of the JAMM domain containing deubiquitinases, functions in malignant progression of certain types of cancer. However, the role of POH1 in prostate cancer (PCa) remains unclear.
Multi-parametric magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI)-directed biopsy for prostate cancer (PC) diagnosis improves the detection of clinically significant prostate cancer (CSPC) and decreases the rate of over-diagnosis of insignificant disease. The aim of this study was to investigate the value of mpMRI combined with prostate specific antigen density (PSAD) in the decision making related to the biopsy.
Prostate cancer (PCa) is the 4th most commonly diagnosed cancer in the male population and incidence of different stages is increasing every year. The efficiency of PCa treatment is strongly dependent on the its stage. Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) is the most widely used and universal biomarker of PCa worldwide. Considering its limited predictive value, particularly in patients older than 50 with PSA level ranging from 4.5 to 10 ng/ml, there is a need to introduce new serum biomarkers of PCa. Current dat...
Transrectal, ultrasonography-guided prostate biopsy often fails to disclose the severity of underlying pathologic findings for prostate cancer. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-guided biopsy may improve the characterization of prostate pathologic results, but few studies have examined its use for the decision to enter active surveillance.
