Shared Decision-Making for Patients with Advanced Urological Malignancies: Evaluation of a Joint Urological-Oncological Clinic Model

Conclusions: The joint clinic model has been successfully implemented at our institution and continues on a weekly basis. The clinic is increasingly used, not only for newly diagnosed metastatic prostate cancer, but also for other complex uro-oncological cases. The clinic allows optimized oncological treatment without delay and with a reduced effort for patients.Oncol Res Treat

Authors: Lin Y, Zhong H, Sun B, Peng Y, Lu F, Chen M, Zhu M, Huang J Abstract Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is one of the commonest urological tumors. The incidence of RCC ranks third among urological tumors, after prostate cancer and bladder tumors. However, the etiology of RCC remains unclear. Ubiquitin-specific protease 22 (USP22), a potential marker of cancer stem cells, is associated with the occurrence and progression of numerous tumors. However, the roles of USP22 in RCC have not yet been investigated. Survivin is a member of the inhibitor of apoptotic protein family involved in RCC progression. The present stu...

Authors: Murphy N, Shah P, Shih A, Khalili H, Liew A, Zhu X, Lee A Abstract Single-cell sequencing (SCS) is a powerful new tool that applies Next Generation Sequencing at the cellular level. SCS has revolutionized our understanding of tumor heterogeneity and the tumor microenvironment, immune infiltration, cancer stem cells (CSCs), circulating tumor cells (CTCs), and clonal evolution. The following chapter highlights the current literature on SCS in genitourinary (GU) malignancies and discusses future applications of SCS technology. The renal cell carcinoma (RCC) section highlights the use of SCS in characterizing ...

A. Calin Available systemic treatment options for cancers of the genitourinary system have experienced great progress in the last decade. However, a large proportion of patients eventually develop resistance to treatment, resulting in disease progression and shorter overall survival. Biomarkers indicating the increasing resistance to cancer therapies are yet to enter clinical routine. Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNA) are non-protein coding RNA transcripts longer than 200 nucleotides that exert multiple types of regulatory functions of all known cellular processes. Increasing evidence supports the role of lncRNAs in cance...

Abstract In various cancers, high-grade tumor and poor survival rate in patients with upregulated lncRNAs UCA1 have been confirmed. Urothelial carcinoma associated 1 (UCA1) is an oncogenic non-coding RNA with a length of more than 200 nucleotides. The UCA1 regulate critical biological processes that are involved in cancer progression, including cancer cell growth, invasion, migration, metastasis, and angiogenesis. So It should not surprise that UCA1 overexpresses in variety of cancers type, including pancreatic cancer, ovarian cancer, gastric cancer, colorectal cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer, endometrial c...

Aberrantly glycosylated integrin α3β1 is a unique urinary biomarker for the diagnosis of bladder cancer. Aging (Albany NY). 2020 Jun 13;12: Authors: Jin D, Zhang R, Chen H, Li C Abstract Bladder cancer (BC) is the most common malignancy of the urinary tract. We developed a new and ELISA kit for detecting aberrantly glycosylated integrin α3β1 (AG31) in human urine. We analysed urine samples (n=408) of patients with BC, renal cell carcinoma (RCC), prostate cancer (PC), cystitis, nephritis, and prostatitis from two centres in China. The subjects in the validation groups (n=2317) wer...

Purpose of review Systemic treatment of advanced urogenital malignancies has changed significantly in recent years and it will continue to change rapidly in upcoming years. It is the scope of this review article to providing the reader with the most recently approved treatment strategies to be used in daily routine for the individualized and most optimal treatment of our patients. Recent findings Immunooncological therapy (IOT) has emerged as the treatment of choice in metastatic renal cell carcinoma and we describe the most relevant clinical trials and we will give some differential therapeutic recommendation who mig...

The future course of this pandemic is still an enigma, but health care services are expected to resume soon in a phased manner. This might be a long drawn process and we need to have policies in place, to be able to fight both, the SARS-CoV-2 virus and cancer, simultaneously, and emerge triumphan...

Abstract Systemic therapy in uro-oncology is currently undergoing major changes. In the past, drug therapies only showed good treatment results in metastasized testicular tumors. New developments indicate that an improved understanding of tumor biology will lead to targeted treatment strategies for metastatic prostate, urothelial and renal cell carcinoma. In the following article, we summarize the practice-relevant innovations in systemic therapy in the guidelines on prostate cancer, transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder and renal cell carcinoma.

Abstract Although surgery with curative intent is critical for management of many localized cancers, multimodal therapy including neoadjuvant and adjuvant therapy has been introduced to increase the effectiveness of local control of surgery and prolong survival. However, strong evidence supporting the utility of such multimodal therapy is limited. The utility of perioperative chemotherapy has been extensively investigated in bladder cancer, and several randomized controlled trials have indicated the benefit of neoadjuvant cisplatin-based chemotherapy in muscle-invasive bladder cancer. Regrettably, perioperative th...
