Reduction of salivary gland uptake in endoradiotherapy of prostate cancer: first preclinical data of a cleavable derivative of PSMA-617
Conclusions: The chemical modification of PSMA-617 resulted in negligible impact and the excellent cell binding properties, tumor uptake and the pharmacokinetic characteristics of PSMA-617 could be preserved. As the cleavability of the novel compound was shown in the presented in vitro proof-of-concept, further studies need to investigate the related in vivo properties. The first preclinical data on a cleavable derivative of PSMA-617 emphasize the potential of this strategy to minimize dose-limiting side effects for an improved therapy of prostate cancer.
This study aims to investigate the apoptotic and anti-angiogenic effect of Zoledronic acid on hormone-refractory prostate cancer cell lines. XTT cell proliferation assay used to assess cytotoxicity. Caspase 3/7 activity and DNA fragmentation were measured to verify apoptosis. Angiogenic cytokine profiles investigated using the human angiogenesis antibody array I. Administration of Zoledronic acid on PC-3 and DU-145 prostate cancer cell lines resulted in increased cytotoxicity and apoptosis with a time- and dose-related manner. Also, the administration of Zoledronic acid significantly reduced several angiogenic cytokine pro...
Authors: Papasotiriou I, Apostolou P, Ntanovasilis DA, Parsonidis P, Osmonov D, Jünemann KP Abstract Hormone-refractory prostate carcinoma has a different cell surface protein profile than hormone-sensitive prostate carcinoma, which provides migration ability and interactions with organs/tissues. Detection and association of these proteins with lymph node metastasis via lymphadenectomy might be beneficial for patients. Gene expression analysis in hormone-refractory and hormone-sensitive commercial cancer cell lines was performed and, after co-cultivation with osteoblasts or endothelial cells, knockdown experim...

CONCLUSIONS: The results showed the in vitro cytotoxic potential of the triterpene-enriched fraction obtained from the leaves of C. pachystachya on human prostate cancer PC3 cell line. PMID: 32768881 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Brachytherapy boost improves biochemical recurrence rates in men with high-risk prostate cancer (HRPC). Few data are available on whether one isotope is superior to another. We compared the oncologic and morbidity outcomes of I-125 and Pd-103 in men with HRPC receiving brachytherapy.
Abstract We aimed to estimate the risk of secondary cancer after radiotherapy (RT) in high-risk prostate cancer (HRPC) patients with pelvic irradiation. Computed tomography data of five biopsy-proven HRPC patients were selected for this study. Two different planning target volumes (PTV1 and PTV2 ) were contoured for each patient. The PTV1 included the prostate, seminal vesicles, and pelvic lymphatics, while the PTV2 included only the prostate and seminal vesicles. The prescribed dose was 54 Gy for the PTV1 with a sequential boost (24 Gy for the PTV2 ). Intensity-modulated RT (IMRT) and volumetric modulat...
Conclusion: Our study demonstrated that the TGF-β-acetylated KLF5-Bcl-2 signaling axis mediates DTX resistance in prostate cancer and blockade of this pathway could provide clinical insights into chemoresistance of prostate cancer.
Conclusion: The results of this study may provide helpful evidence of DP for the treatment of patients with HRPC. Systematic review registration: INPLASY202040112.
In this report, we present a typical case of “double-negative” end-stage prostate cancer that morphologically resembled basal cell carcinoma of prostate, basaloid large nest type.
