We haven't heard any women clamoring to be spared the expense of covering prostate cancer. Wonder why that is?

A New Approach to Target an 'Undruggable' Prostate Cancer Driver

When small-molecule inhibitors proved elusive, researchers developed a novel strategy: Using large molecule peptides to target a common prostate cancer driver. It may provide a path for developing new therapies against a challenging target.

A new approach to target an 'undruggable' prostate cancer driver

(Michigan Medicine - University of Michigan) When small-molecule inhibitors proved elusive, researchers developed a novel strategy: Using large molecule peptides to target a common prostate cancer driver. It may provide a path for developing new therapies against a challenging target.

Prostate cancer: To treat or not to treat

It is said that every man, if able to live long enough, will most likely develop prostate cancer—a relatively slow growing cancer that about 99 percent of the time occurs over the age of 50. The prostate is a … The post Prostate cancer: To treat or not to treat appeared first on Bel Marra Health - Breaking Health News and Health Information.

Non-invasive prostate cancer diagnosing, monitoring

Technology under development will provide a non-invasive approach for diagnosing prostate cancer and tracking the disease's progression. It could enable doctors to determine how cancer patients are responding to different treatments without needing to perform invasive biopsies.

Non-invasive prostate cancer diagnosing, monitoring

(Washington State University) Technology being developed at Washington State University provides a non-invasive approach for diagnosing prostate cancer and tracking the disease's progression. It could enable doctors to determine how cancer patients are responding to different treatments without needing to perform invasive biopsies.

Common Reasons For Elevated PSA Levels Besides Prostate Cancer

Prostate specific antigen (PSA) is a protein produced by cells of the prostate gland in men. A man may have a PSA blood test measuring the level of PSA in a man’s blood with the results reported as nanograms of PSA per milliliter (ng/ml) of blood. Show More Summary

New Insights Into Side Effects Can Help Prostate Cancer Patients Choose Treatments

A new study led by UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center researchers identifies distinct patterns of side effects for prostate cancer treatments that patients could use to guide their choices.

New insights into side effects can help prostate cancer patients choose treatments

(UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center) A new study led by UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center researchers identifies distinct patterns of side effects for modern-day prostate cancer treatments that patients could use to guide their choices.

Adverse effects, quality of life of treatment vs. no treatment for men with localized prostate cancer

(The JAMA Network Journals) Two studies published by JAMA examine the adverse effects and quality of life as reported by men with localized prostate cancer who chose treatment, observation or active surveillance.

Active Surveillance Preserves Quality of Life for Prostate Cancer Patients

Faced with the negative quality-of-life effects from surgery and radiation treatments for prostate cancer, low risk patients may instead want to consider active surveillance with their physician, according to a study released Tuesday by the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).

Active surveillance preserves quality of life for prostate cancer patients

(Vanderbilt University Medical Center) Faced with the negative quality-of-life effects from surgery and radiation treatments for prostate cancer, low risk patients may instead want to consider active surveillance with their physician, according to a study released Tuesday by the Journal of the American Medical Association.

Producing radioisotopes for medical imaging and disease treatment

The before and after images are stunning: A prostate cancer patient riddled with metastatic tumors that disappear after just three, potent treatments.

Popular Prostate Cancer Therapy Is Short, Intense and Unproved

Researchers hope a study will shed some light on a cancer treatment, using radiation, that is growing in popularity and surrounded by questions.

Effective combinatorial immunotherapy for castration-resistant prostate cancer

4 days agoAcademics : Nature AOP

A significant fraction of patients with advanced prostate cancer treated with androgen deprivation therapy experience relapse with relentless progression to lethal metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC). Immune checkpoint...Show More Summary

Disrupting prostate cancer 'homing signal' could hold promise for new treatments

(King's College London) New King's College London research sheds light on the cellular mechanisms which enable cancer cells to escape the prostate and spread to other parts of the body.

Dietary anti-cancer compound may work by influence on cellular genetics

Sulforaphane, a dietary compound from broccoli that's known to help prevent prostate cancer, may work through its influence on long, non-coding RNAs, report scientists. This is another step forward in a compelling new area of study on the underlying genetics of cancer development and progression.

Genetic association with aggressive prostate cancer discovered

A genetic connection to the aggressive form of prostate cancer has been discovered by researchers. The study showed a threefold increase in the risk of aggressive prostate cancer for men with the genetic mutation. The frequency of the gene variants varied from 6 to 14 percent of the population of men with prostate cancer.

Prostate Cancer Clinical Trial Shows Treating with Precision Radiotherapy Reduces Course of Treatment by 50%

An Ontario-led international clinical trial with 1,206 men with localized prostate cancer shows that compressing radiation treatments into four weeks from eight delivers similar outcomes.

Dietary anti-cancer compound may work by influence on cellular genetics

(Oregon State University) Researchers have found that sulforaphane, a dietary compound from broccoli that's known to help prevent prostate cancer, may work through its influence on long, non-coding RNAs. This is another step forward in a compelling new area of study on the underlying genetics of cancer development and progression.
