Abstract Prostate cancer (PC), which has high morbidity and mortality among elderly men, is becoming the most common malignancy in men. The progression of PC is associated with several aspects including apoptosis, proliferation and metastasis. C-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK) is a member of mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs), which play vital roles in regulating diverse cell processes. JNK has been shown to activate multiple substrates to modulate apoptosis, proliferation, tumorigenesis and inflammation in response to various stimuli including cytokines, pathogens, growth factors, oxidative stress, ultraviolet...

Abstract Paris forrestii is a unique plant found in Tibet and Yunnan, China, and total saponins from Paris forrestii (PCT3) contain anticancer steroid glycosides. RNA expression plays an important role in various biological processes. However, the cytotoxicity effects and mechanisms of PCT3 in relation to prostate cancer (PCa) cells have not yet been reported. In the present study, the antitumor activity of PCT3 on PCa cells was evaluated. PCT3 displayed potent anticancer effects toward PCa cells that were similar to the effects of pure saponins from P. forrestii, but PCT3 had less activity in suppressing the pros...

(University of East Anglia) A prescription of short-term exercise for patients with advanced prostate cancer could help to reduce the side-effects of hormone therapy, according to new research.The trial aimed to reduce the adverse side-effects of hormone therapy such as weight gain and an increased risk of heart problems. The results show that a three month programme of aerobic and resistance training intervention prevented adverse changes in cardiopulmonary fitness and fatigue

ConclusionIMRT at a dose up to 78  Gy combined with short-term neoadjuvant ADT resulted in excellent long-term disease-free outcomes with acceptable morbidities among patients with IR PCa. In addition, the incidence of late recurrence was very low. Further investigation is warranted to confirm our findings.

Nature Reviews Urology, Published online: 09 December 2019; doi:10.1038/s41585-019-0268-1New data show that prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) PET–CT can reveal the anatomical location of prostate cancer recurrences in patients diagnosed with nonmetastatic castration-resistant disease according to conventional imaging. The findings necessitate a new evaluation of the role of PSMA PET–CT in this setting compared with standard-of-care imaging and treatment approaches.

The objective of the present study was to evaluate the beneficial effect of endorectal power Doppler/grayscale ultrasound-guided biopsy over that of mpMRI/TRUS-guided biopsy for decision-making regarding prostatectomy in males with a high risk of prostate cancer. Data regarding endorectal power Doppler/grayscale ultrasound-guided biopsies and mpMRI/TRUS-guided biopsies of 1,094 males with elevated specific prostate antigen, were included. Radical prostatectomy was performed in males aged

Authors: Nekrasov KA, Vikarchuk MV, Rudenko EE, Ivanitskiy IV, Grygorenko VM, Danylets RO, Kondratov AG, Stoliar LA, Sharopov BR, Kashuba VI Abstract The detection of prostate cancer (PCa) biomarkers in bodily fluids, a process known as liquid biopsy, is a promising approach and particularly beneficial when performed in urine samples due to their maximal non-invasiveness requirement of collection. A number of gene panels proposed for this purpose have allowed discrimination between disease-free prostate and PCa; however, they bear no significant prognostic value. With the purpose to develop a gene panel for PCa dia...
