Possible role of 5-alpha reductase inhibitors in non-invasive bladder urothelial neoplasm: multicentre study.

CONCLUSIONS: Long-term treatment with 5- ARIs might reduce the risk of bladder tumour recurrence, extension of lesions and increase the recurrence-free survival rate. A long-term, randomized prospective study could definitively assess the possible role of these drugs. PMID: 31833718 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This report describes the case of a 20 years old man who was diagnosed with a mass involving the small intestine and bladder during the course of investigations for faecaluria and abdominal pain. Histopathological examination of the biopsies during cystoscopy revealed: muscle invasive transitional cell carcinoma, while the computerized tomography scan had confirmed the enterovesical fistula.The patient was traited by Radical cystectomy with extended pelvic lymph node dissection and ileocecal resection as ultimate curative treatment.

Authors: Borgna V, Vidal I, Castillo OA Abstract OBJECTIVE: To compare peri-operative and mid-term oncological outcomes between Open radical cystectomy (ORC) and Laparoscopic radical cystectomy (LRC). METHODS: A retrospective cohort was assembled, in which 182 patients had been subjected consecutively to Radical Cystectomy (RC) for treatment of muscle-invasive bladder cancer (MIBC) between 2000 and 2010 in a single center. Two cohorts were included: ORC (n=83) and LRC (n=99). All the RCs were performed by the same surgeon. Perioperatory complications were registered according to Clavien-Dindo classification. We...

Nature Reviews Urology, Published online: 17 January 2020; doi:10.1038/s41585-019-0263-6An energetic interplay between tumour and immune cells leads to metabolic competition in the tumour ecosystem, an effect that could be targeted to boost immune checkpoint inhibition. In this Review, the authors discuss cancer cell and immune cell metabolism and consider the potential therapeutic targets within these processes.

Researchers in Spain have discovered a drug combination showing potential in treating the most difficult-to-treat type of malignant mesothelioma. Selumetinib and AZD8186, already being studied separately in clinical trials for other cancers, displayed efficacy when used in combination on mesothelioma of the sarcomatoid cell type. Researchers at the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre made the discovery during their study using mice models and human tumor cells in the laboratory. “The findings, we hope, are relevant,” Dr. Paco Real, who led the study, told The Mesothelioma Center at Asbestos.com. “We d...

Publication date: Available online 15 January 2020Source: NeurocomputingAuthor(s): Guanjin Wang, Guangquan Zhang, Kup-Sze Choi, Kin-Man Lam, Jie LuAbstractTwo dilemmas frequently occur in many real-world clinical prognoses. First, the on-hand data cannot be put entirely into the existing prediction model, since the features from new data do not perfectly match those of the model. As a result, some unique features collected from the patients in the current domain of interest might be wasted. Second, the on-hand data is not sufficient enough to learn a new prediction model. To overcome these challenges, we propose an output-...
