ConclusionsMaxillofacial manifestation of bone metastasis is common but is often overlooked. Therefore, it should be considered in the differential diagnosis when a patient with a history of antiresorptive medications presents with a gingival mass and/or exophytic bone. Good clinical judgment and well-timed bone biopsy and diagnostic imaging can lead to the correct diagnosis and optimal treatment.
To evaluate the occurrence of nonsyndromic cleft lip and/or palate (NSCL/P) in first-degree relatives of patients with prostate cancer (PC).
Bisphosphonates, such as zoledronic acid, are commonly used to treat bone metastasis from malignant conditions, such as multiple myeloma, or from solid tumors, such as breast or prostate cancer. Medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (MRONJ) is one of the complications of bisphosphonate treatment. The reported incidence of MRONJ among patients with cancers and bone metastases treated with zoledronic acid is 1.3%. MRONJ has been reported to have an incidence rate of up to 18.5%. The clinical and radiographic presentations of MRONJ are very similar to those of bone metastases, making early diagnosis and timely treatment challenging.
In conclusion, the molecular and functional analysis of circulating tumor cells and circulating nucleic acids can be used as companion diagnostics to improve the stratification of therapies and to obtain insights into therapy-induced selection of cancer cells..

CONCLUSIONS: AI technologies are growing their role in health care; but, up to now, their "real-life" implementation remains limited. However, in the near future, the potential of AI-driven era could change the clinical practice in Urology, improving overall patient outcomes. PMID: 31833725 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS: Our data show high adherence and persistence rates in men on ADT. The overall survival in the super-elderly is not influenced by persistence and/or adherence but rather by co-prescriptions. PMID: 31833723 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS: ORP, ePLND and seminal vesicle invasion are independent predictors of the risk of hospital readmission over the long term at a large single tertiary referral center. When surgery is chosen as a primary treatment of PCA, patients should be informed of the risk of hospital readmission and related risk factors. Assessing seminal vesicle invasion by preoperative clinical staging identifies locally advanced disease, which is associated with an increased risk of hospital readmission.

CONCLUSIONS: Three USP steroids resulted significantly altered in our PCa population. These preliminary results, combined with the simplicity and low-cost of the analysis, open to further investigation of the potential role of this restricted USP in PCa diagnosis.

Conclusion: MiR-7-5p suppresses NSCLC metastasis. Targeting miR-7-5p may contribute to the success of NSCLC therapy. PMID: 31832068 [PubMed - in process]
