Aggressive Prostate Cancer

Multidisciplinary approach is key to successful treatment of aggressive prostate cancer

A research team from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) designated Kimmel Cancer Center (KCC) at Jefferson has concluded – for the first time – that a multidisciplinary clinic approach to aggressive prostate cancer can improve survival in patients. The results from the 15-year study of the multidisciplinary clinic can be found in the November… Multidisciplinary approach is key to successful treatment of aggressive prostate cancer   



High percentage of omega-3s in the blood may boost risk of aggressive prostate cancer

The largest study ever to examine the association of dietary fats and prostate cancer risk has found what’s good for the heart may not be good for the prostate.

Analyzing data from a nationwide study involving more than 3,400 men, researchers at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center found that men with the highest blood… High percentage of omega-3s in the blood may boost risk of aggressive prostate cancer   



Age a Big Factor in Prostate Cancer Deaths

Contrary to common belief, men age 75 and older are diagnosed with late-stage and more aggressive prostate cancer and thus die from the disease more often than younger men, according to a University of Rochester analysis published online this week by the journal, Cancer.

The study is particularly relevant in light of the recent… Age a Big Factor in Prostate Cancer Deaths   



Incidences and severity of prostate cancer correlated with meat consumption

Increased consumption of ground beef or processed meat is positively associated with aggressive prostate cancer, according to a study published Nov. 23 in the online journal PLoS ONE.

The research team, led by John Witte of University of California, San Francisco, also found that the correlation was primarily driven by red meat that was… Incidences and severity of prostate cancer correlated with meat consumption   



Scientists develop ‘barcode’ blood test for aggressive prostate cancer

Scientists have designed a blood test that reads genetic changes like a barcode - and can pick out aggressive prostate cancers by their particular pattern of gene activity.

A team at The Institute of Cancer Research, London, and The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust found reading the pattern of genes switched on and off… Scientists develop ‘barcode’ blood test for aggressive prostate cancer   



Gold Nanoparticle Prostate Cancer Treatment Found Safe in Dogs, MU Study Shows

Currently, large doses of chemotherapy are required when treating certain forms of cancer, resulting in toxic side effects. The chemicals enter the body and work to destroy or shrink the tumor, but also harm vital organs and drastically affect bodily functions. Now, scientists at the University of Missouri have proven that a new form… Gold Nanoparticle Prostate Cancer Treatment Found Safe in Dogs, MU Study Shows   



Chronic inflammation may be linked to aggressive prostate cancer

The presence of chronic inflammation in benign prostate tissue was associated with high-grade, or aggressive, prostate cancer, and this association was found even in those with low prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels, according to a study published in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention, a journal of the American Association for Cancer Research.

An analysis of… Chronic inflammation may be linked to aggressive prostate cancer   



New data shows ProMark accurately predicts aggressive prostate cancer, pathology outcomes

Today, for the first time, Metamark presents results from the clinical validation study that showed ProMark™, the first and only proteomic-based imaging biopsy test, achieved its primary endpoint by accurately differentiating between aggressive and non-aggressive forms of prostate cancer at early stages of disease. ProMark™ was shown to predict which patients have low-risk disease… New data shows ProMark accurately predicts aggressive prostate cancer, pathology outcomes   



Specific baldness pattern linked with increased prostate cancer risk

Men with a specific pattern of baldness at age 45 have a 40% increased risk of later developing aggressive prostate cancer, according to a new study published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology.

Increasingly, evidence is suggesting that both prostate cancer and male pattern baldness are linked to increased levels of androgens… Specific baldness pattern linked with increased prostate cancer risk
