Publication date: Available online 15 November 2019Source: Meta GeneAuthor(s): Berjas Abumsimir, Mohammed Mrabti, Abdelilah Laraqui, Ahmed Ameur, Saad Ibnsouda Koraishi, Mohammed Mzibrie, Mohammed Nabil Benchekroun, Hlima Bessi, Ikram Tiabi, Ihsan Almahasneh, Moulay Mustapha EnnajiAbstractThe home box transcription factor gene (HOXB13) plays a certain role in human development and prostate tumorgenesis. Genetic alterations of HOXB13 help to explore the suspected role in prostate cancer. To determine the prevalence and clinical correlates of high-frequent mutational events in home box transcription factor (HOXB13); DNA samples from 50 men treated at the military hospital in Rabat, Morocco, were genotyped and confirmed by Sanger sequencing. The frequency and distribution of high frequent mutations were determined according to patient pathological characteristics. Within coding region of HOXB13; the Frameshift mutation: c.575delG (p.Gly192Valfs) with frequency of 5/50 (10%), and nonsense mutation: c.261C > A (p.Tyr87Ter), frequency: 6/50 (12%) and Missense mutations: c.665C > G (p.Pro222Arg), c.643C > T (p.Arg215Cys), c.776A > C (p.Gln259Pro), c.757A > C (p.Thr253Pro) with frequency rates: 10/50 (20%), 9/50 (18%), 8/50 (16%), and 7/50 (14%) respectively, were the most frequent mutations. Patients carrying one or more high frequent mutation at the same time treated with radical prostatectomy were: 9/35(26%), and 8/35 (23%) of them have pathologi...

In this study of Chinese men with biochemical recurrence, added value for the detection of lesions compatible with sites of PCa was found with68Ga-PSMA-11 PET/CT over conventional imaging. The observed patterns of disease spread may have implications for understanding the biology of early prostate cancer metastasis.

oshi Miyamoto Some observational studies have implied a link between vasectomy and an elevated risk of prostate cancer. We investigated the impact of vasectomy on prostate cancer outgrowth, mainly using preclinical models. Neoplastic changes in the prostate were compared in transgenic TRAMP mice that underwent vasectomy vs. sham surgery performed at 4 weeks of age. One of the molecules identified by DNA microarray (i.e., ZKSCAN3) was then assessed in radical prostatectomy specimens and human prostate cancer lines. At 24 weeks, gross tumor (p = 0.089) and poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma (p = 0.036) occurred more of...

A 72-year-old man with a history of prostate adenocarcinoma initially managed by radical prostatectomy and salvage radiation therapy underwent resection of a left vas deferens recurrence identified on PSMA PET. Despite an initial response, PSA failed to fall below 3.5 ng/L, prompting re-evaluation with PSMA PET/CT: a left distal hydroureter with presumed physiologic urine activity remains despite diuretic administration. Upon scrutiny of the prior PSMA PET/CT and diagnostic CTs, the distal ureteral uptake matched a subtle circumferential area of enhancing mild ureteral thickening. Pathological review after left uretectomy ...

Conclusion: In this study, there was a steady decrease in GS upgrading with the prostate size extending up to 49.7 g. There was also an association between downgrading and extending prostate size. Due to the greater risk of high-grade disease in men with small prostates, smaller prostate bulks are most probably upgraded after radical prostatectomy. A higher maximum percentage of involvement per core was an independent predictive factor of upgrading from biopsy grade 1 to grade ≥ 2. Our study showed that patients' age was not predictive of upgrading, which is consistent with other studies. Also, we demonstrated a non-sig...

Authors: Janiczek M, Szylberg Ł, Antosik P, Kasperska A, Marszałek A Abstract Prostate cancer (PCa) is the second most commonly diagnosed malignant tumor and the fifth leading cause of cancer death in men in the world. The most common types of tumors are adenocarcinomas. Prostate cancer is a slow-growing cancer. The incidence increases with age. Evaluation of proinflammatory factors such as IL-17A, IL-17F, IL-17RA, and IL-17RC expression makes it possible to assess the impact of inflammatory process on progression of PCa. The aim of the study was to retrospectively assess the histological material of PCa divided ...

Conclusions: 68Ga PSMA-11 PET/MR is overall highly concordant with surgical pathology and provides complementary information to multiparametric MR for assessment of extent of cancer involvement in prostate gland and pelvic nodes. Patients without nodal involvement on PET in our cohort had a low probability of biochemical recurrence in two years after imaging.

Conclusions: Tumoral perineural invasion in prostatic cancer is an under recognized and incompletely elucidated phenomenon that is increasingly being reported due to positive radiographic findings.-Combining MRI and PET-CT imaging modalities has been suggested to improve radiographic accuracy during evaluation of lumbosacral plexopathies in patients with prostatic adenocarcinoma.-Imaging with prostate-specific PET radio-tracers in cases with suspicion of lumbosacral plexopathy and history of prostate cancer, may prove useful to narrow the differential diagnosis by potentially excluding inflammatory or non-prostatic malignancy etiologies.
