AbstractProstate cancer is the second leading cause of death from cancer, behind lung cancer, for men in the U. S, with nearly 30,000 deaths per year. A key problem is the difficulty in distinguishing, after biopsy, between significant cancers that should be treated immediately and clinically insignificant tumors that should be monitored by active surveillance. Prostate cancer has been over-treated; a recent European randomized screening trial shows overtreatment rates of 40%. Overtreatment of insignificant tumors reduces quality of life, while delayed treatment of significant cancers increases the incidence of metastatic ...

(European Association of Urology) For the first time, scientists have identified compounds found in coffee which may inhibit the growth of prostate cancer. This is a pilot study, carried out on drug-resistant cancer cells in cell culture and in a mouse model; it has not yet been tested in humans. This work is presented at the European Association of Urology congress in Barcelona, after publication in the peer-reviewed journal The Prostate* (this press release contains additional material).

Thus, herein a series of steroidal imidazoles were designed, synthesized and evaluated as dual AR/CYP17 ligands. Several compounds displayed good biological profiles in both enzymatic and cellular assays. SAR studies showed that introducing oximino at the C-3 position of steriodal sca...

In the present study, we aimed to explore the possible key genes, pathways and therapeutic drugs using bioinformatics methods. Microarray-based data were retrieved and analyzed to screen differentially expressed genes (DEGs) between Cd-treated prostate cells and controls. Then, functions of the DEGs...

We present the case of a 71 year old man with a history of adenocarcinoma of the prostate who developed cancer associated retinopathy concomitant with small cell transformation. This represents an unusual paraneoplastic syndrome that may be progressive and irreversible, requiring prompt diagnosis and treatment to preserve visual function and guide further oncological care.
