The association between clinically determined periodontal disease and prostate-specific antigen concentration in men without prostate cancer: the 2009 –2010 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey

ConclusionsIn this US nationally representative sample, men with periodontal disease did not have higher serum PSA and were not more likely to have clinically elevated PSA after taking into account age and other factors, contrary to the hypothesis. This study suggests that periodontal disease does not notably affect the specificity of PSA for prostate cancer screening.

Purpose High-intensity interval training (HIIT) is a time-efficient and promising tool for enhancing physical fitness. However, there is lack of research concerning safety and feasibility of HIIT in cancer survivors. Therefore, two different HIIT protocols were investigated in terms of safety, feasibility, and acute exercise responses. Methods Forty cancer survivors (20 breast and 20 prostate cancer survivors, 62.9 ± 9.2 yr, BMI 27.4 ± 3.9 kg·m−2, 6 to 52 wk after the end of primary therapy) completed a maximal cardiopulmonary exercise test and two HIIT protocols on a cycle ergometer: 10 &ti...

StrefezziSummaryMalignant melanomas (MMs) represent 7% of all malignant neoplasms in dogs. Oral melanocytic neoplasms are often malignant and associated with poor prognosis. There are no universally accepted prognostic markers for canine oral melanoma. Galectin (Gal)-3 is a prognostic marker for human neoplasms such as thyroid, gastric, colorectal and prostate cancers. The protein is related to processes that favour cancer progression, s...

ConclusionsNon-tissue diagnosis of prostate cancer, while rare, is not outside normal clinical practice and is strongly associated with advanced patient age, higher clinical stage, multiple comorbidities, and very high PSA levels.

CONCLUSIONS Eriocalyxin B induces apoptosis and autophagy involving the Akt/mTOR pathway in prostate cancer cells in vitro. These findings provide evidence for Eriocalyxin B as a potent therapeutic for the treatment of prostate cancer. PMID: 31714902 [PubMed - in process]

Contributor : Inge SeimSeries Type : Expression profiling by high throughput sequencingOrganism : Homo sapiensThe ghrelin receptor antagonist [D-Lys3]-GHRP-6 (or PBS control) was administered for two weeks to NOD/SCID mice with PC3 prostate cancer cell line xenografts. Daily intraperitoneal injections of 20 nmoles/mouse/day [D-Lys3]-GHRP-6 significantly reduced xenograft tumour size at day 9 to 14. RNA-sequencing was performed on xenograft tumours at experimental endpoint (14 days).
