Similarities between next-generation prostate cancer drugs discovered

Added: 22.06.2017 20:18 | 10 views | 0 comments

For the first time, researchers have shown how a class of advanced prostate cancer drugs are processed in the body and how their anti-tumor activity might change depending on how they are metabolized. Their pre-clinical findings may lay the foundation for improving therapies for treatment-resistant, aggressive prostate cancer.

New three-in-one blood test opens door to precision medicine for prostate cancer

Added: 19.06.2017 14:22 | 12 views | 0 comments

Scientists have developed a three-in-one blood test that could transform treatment of advanced prostate cancer through use of precision drugs designed to target mutations in the BRCA genes. By testing cancer DNA in the bloodstream, researchers found they could pick out which men with advanced prostate cancer were likely to benefit from treatment with exciting new drugs called PARP inhibitors.

Targeted photodynamic therapy shown highly effective against prostate cancer

Added: 12.06.2017 19:58 | 14 views | 0 comments

Researchers have demonstrated the efficacy and optimal dose for targeted photodynamic therapy (tPDT) to treat prostate cancer before and during surgery. Prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) was targeted with an anti-PSMA antibody radiolabeled with the tracer indium-111 (111In) and coupled with specialized photosensitizers that cause cell destruction upon exposure to near-infrared (NIR).

Are wealthier people more likely to receive a diagnosis of cancer?

Added: 12.06.2017 1:12 | 10 views | 0 comments

Do wealthier people receive too much medical care? A research team examined incidence and mortality trends for four types of cancers: breast cancer, prostate cancer, thyroid cancer and melanoma. They then compared incidence and mortality of the four cancers in high- vs. low-income counties and found that high-income counties have recorded a much greater increase in the incidence of these four cancers than low-income counties.
