Heat stress (HS) has a great influence on the etiology of male infertility. Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), known to have powerful antioxidant effects, has been reported to have such actions that are effective to treat infertility caused by HS.
The aim of this preclinical study was to directly compare [18F]PSMA-1007 with both [68Ga]Ga-PSMA-11 and [18F]AlF-PSMA-11 in mice bearing PSMA-positive tumor xenografts. Uptake was assessed by PET/CT at 1, 2 and 4 h post-injection, and by ex vivo measurement after 4 h.
DA-8010 is a novel compound developed for the treatment of overactive bladder (OAB) and urinary incontinence. The aims of this study were to investigate the effects of DA-8010 on OAB in a rat model.
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) function as oncogenes or tumor suppressors in an extensive variety of human cancers, including prostate cancer (PCa). Herein, the aim of this study is to investigate the effect of miR-381 on autophagy and apoptosis of PCa cells through the reelin (RELN)-mediated the PI3K/AKT/mTOR signaling pathway.
Urgency is regarded as a core symptom of overactive bladder (OAB) and may correspond to detrusor overactivity (DO). One of the causes of OAB in men is bladder outlet obstruction (BOO) associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).
Current adoptive T cell therapies conducted in an autologous setting are costly, time consuming, and depend on the quality of the patient's T cells. To address these issues, we developed a strategy in which cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTLs) are regenerated from iPSCs that were originally derived from T cells and succeeded in regenerating CTLs specific for the WT1 antigen, which exhibited therapeutic efficacy in a xenograft model of leukemia.
In the current study we have stimulated the efficacy of plasmonic nanoparticles (NPs) by laser hyperthermia to achieve a less invasive method for tumor photothermal therapy of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).
Shh plays an important role in prostate cancer progression, but its correlation with GRP78 and AR is elusive.
The study included 539 patients in total, of which 443 had primary prostate carcinoma and 96 patients had benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).
The leucine zipper-EF-hand containing transmembrane protein 1 (LETM1) is a mitochondrial protein that has been associated with the occurrence and development of malignant tumors. Previous studies have shown that LETM1 expression is increased in several types of human cancer and is associated with a poor clinical outcome.
Investigative and Clinical Urology is the official journal of the Korean Urological Association (KUA). Taehan Pinyogikwa Hakhoe chi was the first version of the official journal of the KUA and was published in January 1960.
