Top story for cancer research

A team of researchers led by Dr. Friederike J. Gruhl and Professor Andrew C. B. Cato at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) are developing a three-dimensional model for prostate cancer research based on cryogels. The model will be used to reproduce natural processes and above all to examine the development and the progression of tumors. Show More Summary

Doctors Can't Be Trusted To Tell Patients Whether They Should Receive Robotic Surgery

Patients often rely on physicians for information about their treatment alternatives. Unfortunately, that information is not always objective. Consider a man with early stage prostate cancer interested in surgical removal of his tumor, but uncertain whether it is better for the surgery to be performed with the help of robotic technology. [...]

New radiotherapy regime for prostate cancer could save NHS tens of millions per year

A shorter course of prostate cancer radiotherapy, involving fewer hospital visits and higher individual doses of radiotherapy, is as effective as the current standard treatment for both survival and quality of life, a major new study reports.

Marvel Promotes Prostate Cancer Awareness with New Variant Covers

This September, Marvel Comics will promote Prostate Cancer Awareness Month with variant covers featuring Iron Man, Captain America and more.

Love, Laughter And Jazz: A Father And Daughter's Musical Journey

One day a few years ago, I stopped by my folks' folk's house to say hi and my Mom told me with tears in her eyes that my Dad had prostate cancer. I didn't believe this could happen because he was so diligent with checking his PSA numbers--to the point he drove his doctors crazy. Show More Summary

PET/CT imaging of prostate cancer proves accurate biopsy guide

San Diego, Calif. - Prostate cancer is the leading cancer among men, second only to skin cancer. With surgical removal at the frontline of defense, oncologists are considering prostate-specific molecular imaging at the point of initial...Show More Summary

Early Warning System for Recurrent Prostate Cancer

Mouse model shows that Notch activation can drive metastatic prostate cancer

HOUSTON - (June 13, 2016) - Notch signaling is involved in prostate cancer and, in a paper published today in The Journal of Clinical Investigation, researchers from Baylor College of Medicine and other institutions have shown that, in a mouse model of the disease, Notch promotes metastasis, or the ability of the tumors to spread to other organs. read more

Screening strategy may predict lethal prostate cancer later in life

Prostate cancer screening with prostate-specific antigen (PSA) has been shown to reduce death and the spread of prostate cancer to other parts of the body, but the PSA test remains highly controversial as it frequently leads to over diagnosis and over treatment of men who may not be at risk.

Targeting the PI3K/AKT/mTOR pathway in prostate cancer development and progression

The research article - Targeting the PI3K/AKT/mTOR Pathway in Prostate Cancer Development and Progression: Insight to Therapy, by Dr Claudio Festuccia (University of L'Aquila, Italy) and published in Clinical Cancer Drugs, volume 3, issue 1 - discusses experimental and clinical data on the pharmacological inhibition of the Akt/mTOR pathways.

Laser ablation becomes increasingly viable treatment for prostate cancer

Up until now, capturing an image of a prostate cancer has been difficult because prostate tissue and tumor tissue are so similar. Precise, non-invasive surgical treatment has proved difficult as a result. Now researchers report that prostate cancer patients may soon have a new option to treat their disease: laser heat.

Laser Ablation Becomes Increasingly Viable Treatment for Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer patients may soon have a new option to treat their disease: laser heat. UCLA researchers have found that focal laser ablation - the precise application of heat via laser to a tumor - is both feasible and safe in men with intermediate risk prostate cancer.

Predicting advanced prostate cancer outcomes with NaF-PET/CT

Reston, Va. - A recent pilot study reported in the June issue of The Journal of Nuclear Medicine found that sodium fluoride (Na-F-18) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (NaF-PET/CT) accurately detects bone metastases in patients with advanced prostate cancer, and follow-up scans over time correlate clearly with clinical outcomes and patient survival. read more

UAB Receives Cutting-Edge Robot to Diagnose and Support Treatment of Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer physicians look to provide personalized medicine to prostate cancer patients with a new medical device.

Predicting advanced prostate cancer outcomes with NaF-PET/CT

A recent pilot study found that sodium fluoride (Na-F-18) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (NaF-PET/CT) accurately detects bone metastases in patients with advanced prostate cancer, and follow-up scans over time correlate clearly with clinical outcomes and patient survival.
