Mutation in prostate tumors shown to change epigenetic identity, the make-up of DNA

Added: 08.08.2017 21:01 | 22 views | 0 comments

Prostate cancer researchers have mapped the impact of an acquired mutation that alters epigenetic identity, the make-up of DNA, in about 50 percent of patient tumor samples. The discovery also identifies a new opportunity for targeted therapy.

First human application of novel PET tracer for prostate cancer

Added: 07.08.2017 22:21 | 19 views | 0 comments

Researchers have demonstrated the potential of a new PET tracer, Carbon-11 labeled sarcosine (11C-sarcosine), for imaging prostate cancer, and set the stage for its possible use in monitoring other cancers.

Exercise Extends Survival With Early Prostate Cancer

Added: 03.08.2017 20:39 | 18 views | 0 comments

Men with prostate cancer that hasn't spread may have longer survival the more they exercise, a recent study suggests. For these men, regular moderate or vigorous physical activity was associated with 31 percent to 37 percent lower likelihood of death during the study,...

Glycans as biomarkers for cancer?

Added: 27.06.2017 0:48 | 28 views | 0 comments

Glycosylated proteins are often overexpressed in tumor cells and thus could serve as tumor markers, especially those with the interesting molecule sialic acid as their sugar moiety. Scientists now report on a bioorthogonal labeling test for sialylated glycoproteins based on a glycoproteomics approach. This assay not only assesses the level of sialylated glycans in the tumor cell membranes, but also identifies up- or downregulated proteins directly in the prostate cancer tissue.
