Urinary prostate-specific antigen and microseminoprotein-beta levels in men with and without prostate cancer: A prospective cohort study

Conclusions: Urinary PSA and MSMB rose significantly after DRE only in men without PCa. Post-DRE urine PSA, MSMB, and PSA/MSMB ratio can differentiate PCa from benign pathology in men with an indication for prostate biopsy.

CONCLUSIONS: Gasless r-PRP is an efficient and safe method in prostate cancer surgery. However, prospective randomized and comparative studies are required with large patient series. PMID: 32240115 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSION: In our study population, patients  ≤55 years treated with RRP did not present differences in the pathologic features of prostate cancer or in biochemical recurrence rates in comparison to the group of older patients. PMID: 32240111 [PubMed - in process]

The objective of this paper was to determine whether there were any race differences in mobility limitation among PCa survivors, and understand the impact of socioeconomic status (SES) on this relationship. Data consisted of 661 PCa survivors (296 Black and 365 White) from the Diagnosis and Decisions in Prostate Cancer Treatment Outcomes (DAD) Study. Mobility limitation was defined as PCa survivors who reported difficulty walking a quarter mile or up 1 flight of stairs. Race was based on the PCa survivors self-identification of either White or Black. SES consisted of education level (i.e., less than high school, high schoo...

AbstractProstate MRI has seen increasing interest in recent years and has led to the development of new MRI techniques and sequences to improve prostate cancer (PCa) diagnosis which are reviewed in this article. Numerous studies have focused on improving image quality (segmented DWI) and faster acquisition (compressed sensing, k-t-SENSE, PROPELLER). An increasing number of studies have developed new quantitative and computer-aided diagnosis methods including artificial intelligence (PROSTATEx challenge) that mitigate the subjective nature of mpMRI interpretation. MR fingerprinting allows rapid, simultaneous generation of q...

AbstractDefinitive therapy for prostate cancer includes radical prostatectomy and radiation therapy. Treatment is elected based on patient preference, biological tumor factors, and underlying health. Post prostatectomy, men are surveyed for disease recurrence with serial PSA measurements, digital rectal exam, and imaging studies depending on nomogram predicted risk of local disease recurrence and distant metastasis. In men with rising PSA levels, pathologically incomplete surgical margins or, if symptoms of metastasis develop, imaging may be obtained to localize disease. In cases of known biochemical recurrence, imaging is...
