The Protective Effect of Maternal Folic Acid Supplementation on Childhood Cancer: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis of Case-control Studies.

Conclusions: Maternal folic acid supplementation was found to have a protective effect against childhood acute lymphoblastic leukaemia. Thus, healthcare professionals are recommended to provide regular health education and health promotion to the community on the benefits of folic acid supplementation during pregnancy.

Purpose of review To discuss and highlight the recent findings in urological oncology focusing on nuclear medicine advances on imaging and therapy. Recent findings Testicular tumors: 18F-FDG as the standard positron emission tomography (PET) tracer with proven good accuracy in detecting metastatic testicular cancer; urothelial cancer: good accuracy of 18F-FDG PET in detecting distant metastases but poor results in detecting local disease; prostate cancer: prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) is a promising target for imaging prostate cancer with unprecedented accuracy in both staging and restaging and prospective...

Purpose of review Molecular imaging with PET/CT targeting the prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) receptor is increasingly utilized in men with prostate cancer (PCa), with clinical indications now expanding beyond biochemical recurrence. PSMA PET/CT often detects sub-centimetre size pathologic nodes and low-volume bone marrow disease that are occult on conventional imaging when the lesion does not cause sclerosis or osteoblastic reaction in surrounding bone. This review focuses on recent evidence for PSMA PET/CT in initial disease staging. Recent findings Several recent studies including a large randomized trial...

Purpose of review Prostate-specific membrane antigen targeted PET imaging (PSMA PET) of biochemically recurrent prostate cancer (BCR) is implemented in routine management in many countries and recommended in European Association of Urology (EAU) and American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) guidelines. Purpose of this review is to summarize recently published evidence of accuracy, management impact, and clinical benefit of PSMA PET in this setting and to state our opinion on the role of PSMA PET in future trials and clinical routine to improve patient outcomes. Recent findings The past two years saw an increase of ...

Purpose of review The aim of this review is to explore the clinical application of different PET radiopharmaceuticals in prostate cancer (PCa), beyond inhibitors of the prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA). Recent findings Choline PET represented in the last decades the standard of reference for PET imaging in PCa and has been recently included in clinical trials evaluating the efficacy of metastasis-directed therapy in oligo-metastatic disease. Fluciclovine, as synthetic amino acid, has been proposed for investigating PCa. The results obtained by the first prospective studies led to FDA approval in 2016 in patie...
