Prostate Cancer

Short-term androgen deprivation therapy combined with radiotherapy as salvage treatment after radical prostatectomy for prostate cancer (GETUG-AFU 16): a 112-month follow-up of a phase 3, randomised trial.

Radiotherapy is the standard salvage treatment after radical prostatectomy. To date, the role of androgen deprivation therapy has not been formally shown. In this follow-up study, we aimed to update the results of the GETUG-AFU 16 trial, which assessed the efficacy of radiotherapy plus androgen suppression versus radiotherapy alone.

Comparison of outcome endpoints in intermediate- and high-risk prostate cancer after combined-modality radiotherapy.

To compare a standard radio-oncological and a surgical biochemical failure definition after combined-modality radiation therapy (CRT) in men with intermediate- and high-risk prostate cancer.

425 men were treated with external beam radiotherapy (59.

Current recommendations for prostate cancer genetic testing: NCCN prostate guideline.

DNA sequencing has become less expensive and patients are requesting sequence information more often. The clinical utility of identifying genomic and/or somatic mutations remains uncertain in most cancers and especially in prostate cancer.

Advancing Age and the Odds of Upgrading and Upstaging at Radical Prostatectomy in Men with Gleason Score 6 Prostate Cancer.

To identify a subset of men with Gleason score (GS) 6 prostate cancer who are at high risk for upgrading/upstaging who should be recommended for multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging.

Between 1992 and 2017, a total of 3571 men with GS6 prostate cancer were consecutively treated at a single institution with radical prostatectomy.

Accuracy of multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging for detecting extracapsular extension in prostate cancer: a systematic review and meta-analysis.

To evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of multiparametric MRI (mpMRI) for detecting extracapsular extension (ECE) in patients with prostate cancer (PCa).

We searched MEDLINE, PubMed, Embase and the Cochrane library up to December 2018.

Prospective multicentre study using high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) for the focal treatment of prostate cancer: Safety outcomes and complications.

To investigate focal therapy using High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) for the treatment of localized prostate cancer (CaP), we analyzed the safety and complications of this procedure.

Patients (pts) eligible for this multicenter prospective cohort study suffered from low to intermediate risk localized CaP with no prior treatment.

Outcomes of pathologically localized high-grade prostate cancer treated with radical prostatectomy.

Adjuvant radiation therapy (ART) is recommended without consideration of radical prostatectomy Gleason score (RP GS) for cases with adverse features. We compared the outcomes of pathologically localized high-grade (GS 8-10) prostate cancer (PC) with those of pT3 GS 7 PC.

MRI-Fusion Targeted vs. Systematic Prostate Biopsy-How Does the Biopsy Technique Affect Gleason Grade Concordance and Upgrading After Radical Prostatectomy?

Introduction: MRI-targeted biopsy (TB) increases overall prostate-cancer (PCa) detection-rates and decreases the risk of insignificant PCa detection. However, the impact of these findings on the definite pathology after radical prostatectomy (RP) is under debate.

Risk of Gleason Score 3 + 4 = 7 prostate cancer upgrading at radical prostatectomy is significantly reduced by target biopsy compared to standard biopsy technique.

To evaluate if multiparametric magnetic resonance (mpMRI)- transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) fusion targeted biopsy (TBx) versus untargeted standard biopsy (SBx) may decrease the rate of pathological upgrading of Gleason score (GS) 3+4 prostate cancer (PCa) at radical prostatectomy (RP).

Role of novel hormonal therapies in the management of non-metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer: a literature-based meta-analysis of randomized trials.

Novel hormonal therapies have been recently investigated in non-metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC). We performed a meta-analysis to assess the efficacy and safety of novel hormonal therapies in non-metastatic CRPC.
