ConclusionLow-dose aspirin or other NSAID use was not associated with reduced prostate cancer risk, neither overall nor according to anthropometric measures, smoking, or alcohol use. The variation according to outcome characteristics warrants further investigation.

Conclusion: Micro-ultrasound is a more convenient and cost-effective method in real-time imaging during the biopsy procedure in detecting clinically significant prostate cancer. Although micro-ultrasound has shown promising results, more clinical data and comprehensive analysis are still needed.

For patients with unfavorable or high-risk prostate cancer, dose escalated radiation therapy leads to improved progression free survival but attempts to deliver increased dose by external beam radiation therapy (EBRT) alone can be limited by late toxicities to nearby genitourinary and gastrointestinal organs at risk. Brachytherapy is a method to deliver dose escalation in conjunction with EBRT with a potentially improved late toxicity profile and improved prostate cancer related outcomes. At least three randomized controlled trials have demonstrated improved biochemical control with the addition of either low-dose rate (LD...

Patients diagnosed with clinically node-positive prostate cancer represent a population that has historically been thought to harbor systemic disease. Increasing evidence supports the role of local therapies in advanced disease, but few studies have focused on this particular population. In this review we discuss the limited role for conventional cross sectional imaging for accurate nodal staging and how molecular imaging, although early results are promising, is still far from widespread clinical utilization. To date, evidence regarding the role of radical prostatectomy and pelvic lymph node dissection in clinically node-...

Abstract Prostate cancer (PC), which has high morbidity and mortality among elderly men, is becoming the most common malignancy in men. The progression of PC is associated with several aspects including apoptosis, proliferation and metastasis. C-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK) is a member of mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs), which play vital roles in regulating diverse cell processes. JNK has been shown to activate multiple substrates to modulate apoptosis, proliferation, tumorigenesis and inflammation in response to various stimuli including cytokines, pathogens, growth factors, oxidative stress, ultraviolet...

Abstract Paris forrestii is a unique plant found in Tibet and Yunnan, China, and total saponins from Paris forrestii (PCT3) contain anticancer steroid glycosides. RNA expression plays an important role in various biological processes. However, the cytotoxicity effects and mechanisms of PCT3 in relation to prostate cancer (PCa) cells have not yet been reported. In the present study, the antitumor activity of PCT3 on PCa cells was evaluated. PCT3 displayed potent anticancer effects toward PCa cells that were similar to the effects of pure saponins from P. forrestii, but PCT3 had less activity in suppressing the pros...
