Incidence and prognosis of clinically significant incidental prostate cancer after radical cystectomy for bladder cancer.

CONCLUSIONS: Incidental prostate cancer had a higher prevalence than previously expected in our cohort (24.4%), but it had no impact in overall survival of patients not even in those with a significant prostate cancer. No biochemical recurrence was reported during the study. PMID: 31697251 [PubMed - in process]

Abstract OBJECTIVES: To describe the epidemiological, clinical and therapeutic aspects of primary urological cancers in semi-urban areas in Burkina Faso. PATIENTS AND METHOD: A descriptive study was conducted over the period from 1 January 2008 to 31 December 2017 in the General Surgery Department of the Tenkodogo Regional Hospital, located in the east of Burkina Faso. All patients over 15 years of age who were diagnosed with primary urological cancer were included. RESULTS: A total of 160 patients were included. One hundred and thirty-one patients were male (81.9%). The sex ratio was 4.5. The average ag...

1560Introduction: Prostate cancer is the most common solid cancer in men. Its incidence increases with age and thus is a major health concern for the ageing population of the world. Following definitive treatment of prostate cancer by radical prostatectomy (RP) or radiotherapy, cancer recurrence is heralded by an increase in serum prostate-specific antigen (PSA) which is called biochemical recurrence. Depending on the patient population studied, 15-40% of patients experience rising serum PSA levels. Determining whether recurrence is local (within the prostate or at the urethral/bladder anastomosis), regional (pelvic) or di...

Conclusions: Higher bone metastasis volume and higher total fluoride skeletal metastatic lesion uptake at the baseline F-18 NaF PET/CT demonstrated worse survival in urological malignancy patients with bone metastases treated. F-18 NaF PET/CT can be used for prediction of overall survival in urological malignancy patients with bone metastases.

Conclusions Levels of physical activity recommended in the 2018 Guidelines are associated with reduced risk and improved survival for several cancers. More research is needed to determine the associations between physical activity and incidence for less common cancers and associations with survival for other cancers. Future studies of cancer incidence and mortality should consider these associations for population subgroups, to determine dose–response relationships between physical activity and cancer risk and prognosis, and to establish mechanisms to explain these associations.

Abstract While radiotherapy is widely used in cancer treatment, the benefits can be limited by radiation-induced damage to neighboring healthy tissues. We previously demonstrated that the anti-inflammatory compound dimethylaminoparthenolide (DMAPT) selectively induces radiosensitivity in prostate tumor tissue from transgenic adenocarcinoma of mouse prostate (TRAMP), while simultaneously protecting healthy tissues from 6 Gy whole-body radiation-induced apoptosis. Here, we examined the radioprotective effect of DMAPT on fibrosis in normal tissues after a partial-body fractionated radiation protocol that more closely...

This study is an important step forward in highlighting C1q as a new prognostic candidate biomarker for a range of carcinomas. Methods Oncomine Database Analysis The expression levels of C1QA, C1QB, and C1QC genes in various carcinomas were analyzed using Oncomine (, a cancer microarray database and web-based data mining platform from genome-wide expression analyses (22, 23). We compared the differences in mRNA level between normal tissue and carcinoma. The mRNA expression levels in neoplastic tissues compared to the healthy tissues were obtained as the parameters of p-value 2, and gene ranking in the t...

In addition to their antimicrobial activities, they possess other functions; e.g., cell activation, proliferation, regulation of cytokine/chemokine production, migration, diffe...

This study aimed to investigate whether combining anti-PD-L1 Atezolizumab with BEV may have a synergistic effect and enhance the efficacy of both treatments in cisplatin resistant epithelial ovarian cancer (CREOC). We retrospectively analyzed 124 epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) patients from Gynecologic Oncology Department of Tianjin Cancer Hospital between January 2013 and June 2018, who all were diagnosed with cisplatin resistance due to progressing

In conclusion, we showed hypermethylation of CpGs as a novel mechanism of action for DNMTi agents and identified 638 hypermethylated molecular targets (CpGs) common to decitabine and azacytidine therapy. These novel results suggest that hypermethylation of CpGs should be considered when predicting the DNMTi responses and side effects in cancer patients. Introduction DNA methyltransferase inhibitors (DNMTi) are widely used as chemical tools for hypomethylating the genome, with an aim to understand the role of DNA methylation in multiple processes (e.g., X-chromosome inactivation and DNA imprinting) and as an anti-ca...
