Prostate cancer remains a significant cause of cancer-related deaths in male population. More recently, accumulating evidence continues to implicate long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs), microRNAs (miRNAs), and mRNAs in various types of cancers, including prostate cancer. The current study aimed to elucidate the role of lncRNA AGAP2-AS1/miR-195-5p/PDZ and LIM domain 5 (PDLIM5) in prostate cancer progression. Initially, microarray expression profiles were applied to screen differentially expressed lncRNAs/miRNAs/genes associated with prostate cancer. Dual-luciferase reporter and RNA pull-down/RIP assays were subsequently performe...

rga L, Küronya Z Abstract The unprecedented development of prostate cancer therapy is a challenge for the proper sequential use of modern medicines. Patients' life expectancies improve when we use treatment lines, one after the other. There is no evidence- based guideline regarding the optimal sequence, but a number of data are available to help the physician selecting the best individualized therapeutic option. The basic treatment for advanced prostate cancer is still androgenic deprivation (ADT), to which we can add additional therapeutic agents. New types of hormonal (androgen receptor targeted, ARTA) agen...

CONCLUSION: Management strategies for patients with mCRPC also treated for comorbidities including CV disease require appropriate selection of therapy, diet, and exercise to meet the needs of the individual patient profile. PMID: 32958445 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: Sympathetic nerves innervating the tumor microenvironment promote cancer progression and are related to stress-induced cancer behavior. The parasympathetic/vagal nerves have variable (promoting or suppressing) effects on different cancer types. Approaches directed toward the sympathetic and parasympathetic/vagal nerves can be developed as a new cancer therapy. In addition to existing pharmacological, surgical, and electrical approaches, a recently developed virus vector-based genetic local neuroengineering technology is a powerful approach that selectively manipulates specific types of nerve fibers innervating...

Abstract Prostate cancer is among the leading causes of death worldwide because its metastatic form is a deadly disease. Therefore, the development of new chemotherapeutics is of immense importance. Nanoparticle technology seems to provide diverse options in this regard. Therefore, poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (PNIPAM) coated superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (SPION) loaded with etoposide were prepared in small sizes (57 nm) and with 3.5% drug content to improve the efficiency of etoposide in prostate cancer therapy. Sustained release of the drug was achieved, which found to be sensitive to low pH and high...

Susan Feyerabend Residual androgen production causes tumor progression in metastatic, castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) patients. Abiraterone acetate (AA), a prodrug of abiraterone, is an oral CYP-17 inhibitor that blocks androgen production. It was hypothesized that adherence-enhancing measures (AEM) might be beneficial for mCRPC patients receiving abiraterone acetate plus prednisone (AA + P). This multicenter, prospective, 2-arm trial allocated mCRPC patients who were progressive after docetaxel-based chemotherapy or asymptomatic/mildly symptomatic after failure of an androgen deprivation therapy to Arm ...

Basel, 28 August 2020 - Roche (SIX: RO, ROG; OTCQX: RHHBY) today announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved FoundationOne ®Liquid CDx, Foundation Medicine’s comprehensive pan-tumour liquid biopsy test for patients with solid tumours. FoundationOne Liquid CDx is a comprehensive genomic profiling (CGP) test that analyses more than 300 cancer-related genes and multiple genomic signatures to optimise patient care. Cance r is a disease of the genome, driven by genetic mutations within a tumour’s DNA. CGP is used to identify these unique mutations to determine how a tumour behaves and...

Authors: Filippi L, Chiaravalloti A, Schillaci O, Bagni O Abstract INTRODUCTION: Alpha emitters present several advantages for cancer therapy. The radiopharmaceutical 223Ra-dichloride has been recently introduced for the targeted alpha therapy (TAT) of metastastic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC). However, since 223Ra-dichloride targets only skeletal lesions, its use in clinical practice is recommended only in subjects without visceral metastases. To overcome this, several efforts have been made to develop radiopharmaceuticals suitable for TAT and specifically directed towards the biomarker prostate spe...
