UCLA researchers have discovered  genetic similarities between the adult stem cells responsible for maintaining and repairing epithelial tissues — which line all of the organs and cavities inside the body — and the cells that drive aggressive epithelial cancers. Their findings could bring about a better understanding of how ag gressive, treatment-resistant cancers develop and progress, and could eventually lead to new drugs for a range of advanced epithelial cancers such as lung, prostate and bladder cancers. The study, led by senior authors Owen Witte and Thomas Graeber, both of the  UCLA E...

In order to draw a comprehensive and precise result about the relationship of MMP-9 and urinary cancers, we presented the current meta-analysis.MethodsWe searched the PubMed, EMbase, Web of Science, CBM, CNKI and Wanfang...

Abstract A 72-year-old Japanese man presented to the hospital with complaints of gross hematuria. Contrast enhanced computed tomography revealed a broad-based, approximately 3-cm bladder tumor near the right ureteral orifice and a 5-cm mass located between the prostate and rectum. The patient underwent transurethral resection of the bladder tumor and a transrectal biopsy of the lesion. Histological examination of the specimens suggested that the patient had a muscle invasive adenocarcinoma from TURBT and a rectal gastrointestinal stromal tumor in TRUS biopsy. Patient underwent total pelvic exenteration and ileal a...

This study aimed at exploring and describing the association between type 2 diabetes and cancer incidence. A cohort of 428,326 people with type 2 diabetes was identified from the Finnish National Diabetes Register and followed up through a register linkage with the Finnish Cancer Registry for cancer incidence during 1988 –2014. A total of 74,063 cases of cancer occurred in this cohort in 4.48 million person-years. This accounted for 16% more than the expected cancer incidence in the Finnish general population; the standardized incidence ratio (SIR) was 1.16 (95% confidence interval [CI] 1.15–1.16). There was a ...

CONCLUSION: mpMRI of the prostate may yield incidental findings, such as small bladder tumors. Awareness of the possibility of incidental bladder lesions is important as 65% of lesions reported in the bladder, not attributable to extension of prostate cancer, proved to be bladder cancer. This may allow for early intervention for asymptomatic patients with undetected bladder cancer prior to disease progression. PMID: 30211685 [PubMed - in process]

Abstract Urothelial carcinoma (UC), originating in the bladder or upper urinary tract, is the most common histological type of cancer. Currently, platinum-based cytotoxic chemotherapy is the standard treatment for metastatic UC (mUC) and the preferred treatment option in the perioperative (neoadjuvant and/or adjuvant) setting of muscle invasive bladder cancer (MIBC). In addition, intravesical bacillus Calmette-Guerin immunotherapy or chemotherapy is applied as the adjuvant therapeutic option in non-muscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) after transurethral resection, to prevent recurrence and progression. In recen...

Abstract BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: To explore the use of texture analysis (TA) features of patients' 3D dose distributions to improve prediction modelling of treatment complication rates in prostate cancer radiotherapy. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Late toxicity scores, dose distributions, and non-treatment related (NTR) predictors for late toxicity, such as age and baseline symptoms, of 351 patients of the hypofractionation arm of the HYPRO randomized trial were used in this study. Apart from DVH parameters, also TA features of rectum and bladder 3D dose distributions were used for predictive modelling of gastrointes...

This study demonstrated the patterns of malignancies in vitiligo patients of Taiwan. Compared with the general population, male patients had higher risks of prostate cancer and female patients had higher risks of thyroid cancer and breast cancer. The risks of bladder cancer were also increased in both male and female patients.
