Prostate Cancer

Inter-reader agreement of the PI-QUAL score for prostate MRI quality in the NeuroSAFE PROOF trial.

The Prostate Imaging Quality (PI-QUAL) score assesses the quality of multiparametric MRI (mpMRI). A score of 1 means all sequences are below the minimum standard of diagnostic quality, 3 implies that the scan is of sufficient diagnostic quality, and 5 means that all three sequences are of optimal diagnostic quality.

Androgen deprivation therapy and radiation for prostate cancer-cognitive impairment, sleep, symptom burden: a prospective study.

This paper (1) sought to compare sleep, mood and physical symptom profiles of men with prostate cancer (PCa) who experienced subjective and objective cancer-related cognitive impairment (CRCI) during the first year of treatment and (2) examine if fluctuations in mood and physical symptoms are associated with change in subjective or objective CRCI.

Role of multiparametric MRI in long-term surveillance following focal laser ablation of prostate cancer.

Determine the multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI) appearance of the prostate following focal laser ablation (FLA) for PCa and to identify imaging characteristics associated with recurrent disease.

The impact of time to prostate specific antigen nadir on biochemical recurrence and mortality rates after radiation therapy for localized prostate cancer.

To investigate the effect of time to prostate-specific antigen (PSA) nadir (TTN) after radiation therapy (RTx) for prostate cancer (PCa) on biochemical recurrence (BCR) and overall survival (OS) rates.

Mutations in TP53 or DNA damage repair genes define poor prognostic subgroups in primary prostate cancer.

Mutations in DNA damage repair genes, in particular genes involved in homology-directed repair, define a subgroup of men with prostate cancer with a more unfavorable prognosis but a therapeutic vulnerability to PARP inhibition.

Lantheus Announces the First and Only FDA Cleared AI-Enabled PSMA Digital Application, aPROMISE™

aPROMISE was developed to quantify and standardize assessment of PSMA PET/CT images and will support PYLARIFY® (piflufolastat F 18) adoption in the U.S.

San Francisco, CA (UroToday.com) -- Lantheus Holdings, Inc. (Lantheus) announced that its subsidiary, EXINI Diagnostics AB, was granted 510(k) clearance by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its digital application, aPROMISE™ (automated PROstate Cancer Molecular Imaging Standardized Evaluation).

The European Association of Urology Biochemical Recurrence Risk Groups Predict Findings on PSMA PET in Patients with Biochemically Recurrent Prostate Cancer after Radical Prostatectomy.

Purpose: To evaluate the association of a new biochemical recurrence (BCR) risk stratification system with PSMA-targeted PET/CT findings. Methods: Two prospective studies that included patients with BCR were pooled.

An integrated functional and clinical genomics approach reveals genes driving aggressive metastatic prostate cancer.

Genomic sequencing of thousands of tumors has revealed many genes associated with specific types of cancer. Similarly, large scale CRISPR functional genomics efforts have mapped genes required for cancer cell proliferation or survival in hundreds of cell lines.

177Lutetium PSMA-617 and idronoxil (NOX66) in men with end-stage metastatic castrate-resistant prostate cancer (LuPIN): Patient outcomes and predictors of treatment response of a Phase I/II trial.

Background: 177Lutetium PSMA-617 (Lu-PSMA-617) is an effective therapy for metastatic castrate-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC). However, treatment resistance occurs frequently and combination therapies may improve outcomes.

Activation of the ABCB1-amplicon promotes cellular viability and resistance to docetaxel and cabazitaxel in castration-resistant prostate cancer.

Docetaxel and cabazitaxel based taxane chemotherapy are critical components in the management of advanced prostate cancer. However, their efficacy is hindered due to de novo presentation with or the development of resistance.
