National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month -- Educating All Men On Reducing Their Risk

This study only looked at the effect of dietary or food sources of zinc and not at zinc supplements. Some dietary sources of zinc include the following: • Beef steak - 3 oz contains 4.9 mg • Oysters - 3 oz contains 67 mg • Shrimp - 3 oz contains 1.5 mg • Pork chop - 3 oz contains 2.8 mg • Yogurt - 1 cup contains 2.2 mg • Enriched cereal - ¾ cup contains 15 mg • Red kidney beans - ½ cup contains 2 mg Zinc coming from meat sources is more readily bioavailable than zinc from vegetarian sources. Legumes and whole grains contain phytic acid inhibiting zinc's bioavailability. Consult with your doctor for their recommendation on whether to supplement with zinc or not. The 2011 Swedish cohort study suggested that their results were not sufficient to recommend zinc supplements. In the meantime consume rich food sources of zinc, particularly from animal sources, to have the best outcome. 2. Lycopene - This naturally occurring phytochemical belongs to a group of pigments known as carotenoids. It is responsible for giving many fruits and vegetables their red color such as watermelon, papaya, pink grapefruit, guava, apricots and above all tomatoes. Tomatoes and all tomato products contain high levels of lycopene and therefore account for 85% of lycopene in the American diet. Many epidemiological studies have linked increased lycopene consumption with decreased prostate cancer risk. The reasons for this include: • It enhances the a...

AbstractPurposeGenetic variants may influence the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics (PKPD) of cyclophosphamide (CY). CY plays a critical role in conditioning chemotherapy for hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT), but its use is limited by toxicity. We explored the effect of genetic variants, potentially affecting PKPD of CY, and outcomes after HCT.MethodsThis observational pharmacogenomic study included 85 adults with hematologic malignancies who received reduced intensity conditioning with CY, fludarabine, and total body irradiation. We collected recipient DNA prior to HCT and evaluated 97 candidate variants in 66...

AbstractPurposePrevious studies have reported that sarcopenia increases the risk of postoperative complications following colorectal resection. This retrospective study assessed the postoperative complications of rectal resection associated with sarcopenia.MethodsWe retrospectively analyzed 262 patients who underwent curative low anterior resection for primary rectal cancer from January 2008 to May 2020 at our institution. The patients were divided into a sarcopenia group (normalized total psoas muscle area
