Novel mutation may be linked to prostate cancer in African-American men

(PLOS) Researchers have identified a novel mutation that may be associated with prostate cancer in African-American men, according to a new study published in PLOS Computational Biology. Scientists have long known that a huge variety of DNA mutations can lead to cancer. Show More Summary

Prostate cancer cells grow with malfunction of cholesterol control in cells

Advanced prostate cancer and high blood cholesterol have long been known to be connected, but it has been a chicken-or-egg problem. Now a team of researchers has identified a cellular process that cancer cells hijack to hoard cholesterol and fuel their growth. Show More Summary

New approach for the capture of tumor-derived exosomes from a prostate cancer cell line

In a new paper in Springer's Journal of Materials Science, researchers at Washington State University report a new approach for the effective capture of tumor-derived exosomes from a prostate cancer cell line. Exosomes are small secreted vesicles that play a key role in intercellular communication and cancer progression.

What Tom Price doesn’t know about prostate cancer screening

Dr. Tom Price may become the first medical doctor to lead the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in 24 years. One might think that having completed medical school and practiced orthopedic surgery before entering politics might give him some extra insight into what works and what doesn’t in medicine. But judging by a […]

Taking a high-priced cancer drug with a low-fat meal can cut cost by 75 percent

(University of Chicago Medical Center) Taking one-fourth the standard dose of a widely used drug for prostate cancer with a low-fat breakfast can be as effective -- and four times less expensive -- as taking the standard dose as recommended: on an empty stomach. The finding has significant financial implications.

Taking a High-Priced Cancer Drug with a Low-Fat Meal Can Cut Cost by 75%

Taking one-fourth the standard dose of a widely used drug for prostate cancer with a low-fat breakfast can be as effective - and four times less expensive - as taking the standard dose as recommended: on an empty stomach. The finding has significant financial implications.

Researchers Identify 'Achilles' Heel' of PTEN That Helps Drive Prostate Cancer Progression

Loss of the protein Importin 11 predicts relapse and metastasis in patients following prostate removal

How to quickly identify sepsis-causing bacteria – melt it down

When a patient is diagnosed with sepsis, a medical syndrome that kills more people than breast cancer, prostate cancer and HIV combined, it sets off a countdown for doctors to treat the infection and uncover the culprit causing the body's systems to shut down. Show More Summary

Researchers identify 'Achilles' heel' of PTEN that helps drive prostate cancer progression

(Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory) Researchers at CSHL have discovered the protein Importin-11 protects the tumor-suppressor protein PTEN from destruction by transporting it into the cell nucleus. their new study suggests loss of Importin-11 may destabilize PTEN, leading to development of lung, prostate, and other cancers.

How does penis length change after prostate cancer surgery?

(Wiley) Many patients who have their prostate glands removed as a treatment for prostate cancer complain of shortening in the length of the penis.

Minnesota Gov. Dayton schedules cancer surgery for March

Researchers identify 'synthetic essentiality' as novel approach for locating cancer therapy targets

A new method has been found for identifying therapeutic targets in cancers lacking specific key tumor suppressor genes. The process, which located a genetic site for the most common form of prostate cancer, has potential for developing precision therapy for other cancers, such as breast, brain and colorectal, say researchers.
