A Step Toward Treating Chemotherapy-Resistant Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer is a leading cause of death among American men, and it's resistant to one of the most powerful chemotherapy medications -- cisplatin. Now, researchers have developed the first therapy of its kind that disrupts prostate cancer cells' metabolism and releases cisplatin into the ...

A New Combination Therapy Regimen Shows Promising Results for Prostate Cancer

The combination of two oral medications has shown positive results in people with prostate cancer, whose disease has spread to other parts of the body. Compared with XTANDI plus placebo, the investigatory combination of TALZENNA and XTANDI ...

Mediterranean Diet the Best Prevention Against Prostate Cancer

New research shows that men who stick to a predominantly Mediterranean diet are less likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer. This diet also improves their chances of recovery if they have PC and are undergoing radiation ...

The New Prostate Cancer Blood Test With 94 Per Cent Accuracy

Researchers have helped develop a new blood test to detect prostate cancer with greater accuracy than current methods. New research shows that the Prostate Screening EpiSwitch (PSE) blood test is 94 per cent accurate -- beating the currently used prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test. The ...

Men with early, curable stages of prostate cancer are missing opportunities to have their cancer detected because national guidelines and media health campaigns focus on urinary symptoms despite a ...

Prognosis of Prostate Cancer Patients Improved

Prostate cancer is a common form of cancer. Researchers have now discovered a faster and easier way to determine who has an aggressive form of cancer, and who has ...

Mechanism Leading to Drug Resistance in Prostate Cancer

Researchers reveal a mechanism by which prostate cancer cells become resistant through molecular modification of the androgen receptor protein and identify a potential treatment approach that could ...

High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) Can Control Prostate Cancer With Fewer Side Effects

High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) can help some men with prostate cancer avoid surgery or ...

Hormones Contribute to Sex Disparities in Bladder Cancer, Study Shows

Male sex hormones interfere with the body's ability to fight bladder cancer, likely explaining why males experience higher cancer rates and more deadly disease, according to a new ...

New Cancer Subtype May Illuminate Treatment Strategy

New Combined Therapy Helps Extend Lives of Men With Prostate Cancer

Practice-changing research shows that a combination of androgen deprivation therapy -- a commonly used hormone injection -- plus pelvic lymph node radiation, kept nearly 90% of clinical trial ...

How Tumor Cells Use Mitochondria to Keep Growing

Investigators have discovered that tumor cells use mitochondria to control their growth and detect stress that can destroy a tumor cell if it is not ...

Less Prostate Cancer Screening Reduces Overdiagnosis but May Miss Aggressive Cases

Over the past 15 years, public health authorities have downgraded recommendations for the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test as a screening tool to reduce the overdiagnosis and overtreatment of men ...

Novel Therapeutic Agents May Reduce the Oncogenesis of Metastatic Prostate Cancer

Researchers have found that treating prostate cancer cells with novel cyclin-dependent kinase 19 (CDK19) and homologous cyclin-dependent kinase 8 (CDK8) inhibitors reduces their potential to migrate ...

Researchers Look to Licorice for Promising Cancer Treatments

A research review into molecular insights of a licorice-derived substance called glycyrrhizin for preventing or treating cancer suggests further research could lead to specific agents for clinical ...

Cause of Metastasis in Prostate Cancer Discovered

Prostate cancers remain localized in the majority of cases, giving affected individuals a good chance of survival. However, about 20% of patients develop incurable metastatic prostate cancer, ...

MRI Innovation Makes Cancerous Tissue Light Up and Easier to See
