Head-to-Head Comparison Between Biparametric and Multiparametric MRI for the Diagnosis of Prostate Cancer: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to perform a systematic review and meta-analysis of a head-to-head comparison between the performance of biparametric MRI (bpMRI; only T2-weighted imaging and DWI) and that of multiparametric MRI (mpMRI; T2-weighted imaging, DWI, dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI) for the diagnosis of prostate cancer.

Evaluating the Cost-Effectiveness of Hydrogel Rectal Spacer in Prostate Cancer Radiotherapy.

A hydrogel rectal spacer (HRS) is a medical device approved by the FDA to increase the separation between the prostate and rectum. We conducted a cost-effectiveness analysis of HRS use for reduction in radiation therapy (RT) toxicities in prostate cancer (PC) patients undergoing external beam radiation therapy (EBRT).

Anti-tumor activity and the mechanism of a green tea (Camellia sinensis) polysaccharide on prostate cancer.

In this study, a homogeneous polysaccharide (GTP), with a molecular weight of 7.0 × 104 Da, was isolated from Green tea, which was only composed of glucose. The antitumor effects of GTP on prostate cancer (PC) cell line along with the possible mechanism was examined.

[Immunotherapy for the treatment of prostate cancer-a comeback?]

Prostate cancer (PCA) seems to be more of an immunologic desert than other tumor entities. It is striking that only rarely does prostate cancer show abundant immune cells and a proimmunogenic microenvironment.

A functional genomics screen reveals a strong synergistic effect between docetaxel and the mitotic gene DLGAP5 that is mediated by the androgen receptor.

Based on a molecular classification of prostate cancer using gene expression pathway signatures, we derived a set of 48 genes in critical pathways that significantly predicts clinical outcome in all tested patient cohorts.

Impact of Diabetes on the Outcomes of Patients With Castration-resistant Prostate Cancer Treated With Docetaxel: A Pooled Analysis of Three Phase III Studies.

The current study aims to provide an assessment of the impact of diabetes mellitus and its metformin treatment on the outcomes of castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) within a pooled dataset of 3 clinical trials.

Abiraterone in metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer: Efficacy and safety in unselected patients.

Abiraterone acetate (AA), an androgen biosynthesis inhibitor, is now a standard of care for men with metastatic, castration-sensitive and castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC). Data exploring real-world toxicity and outcomes are scarce.

The impact of marriage on the overall survival of prostate cancer patients: A Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) analysis.

Marital status has long been associated with positive patient outcomes in several malignances; however, little is known about its influence on prostate cancer. We analyzed data from the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) database to evaluate whether married patients with prostate cancer had a better prognosis than the unmarried.

Perioperative predictors for post-prostatectomy urinary incontinence in prostate cancer patients following robotic-assisted radical prostatectomy: Long-term results of a Canadian prospective cohort.

We aimed to report the impact of perioperative factors that have not been well-studied on continence recovery following robotic-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP).

We analyzed data of 322 men with localized prostate cancer who underwent RARP between October 2006 and May 2015 in a single Canadian centre.

The effect of race on survival after local therapy in metastatic prostate cancer patients.

Local therapy (LT) may offer a survival advantage in highly select newly diagnosed metastatic prostate cancer (mPCa) patients. However, it is unknown whether the benefits vary according to Caucasian vs.
