Intravesical rAd-IFNα/Syn3 showed promising response rates, a tolerable treatment schedule, and acceptable toxicity among patients with high-grade, nonmuscle-invasive bladder cancer, refractory or relapsed after bacillus Calmette-Guérin therapy.
The Decipher prostate cancer gene-expression classifier can predict patients’ risk of metastasis and prostate cancer-specific mortality using biopsy specimens prior to radical prostatectomy or radiotherapy plus androgen deprivation.
Suspicious pathology from kidney tumors was significantly associated with testing positive for fumarate hydratase mutations, which may aid in the early diagnosis of hereditary leiomyomatosis and renal cell carcinoma.
Though it is used infrequently, lymph node dissection with higher yield of lymph nodes is associated with lower all-cause mortality among patients with urothelial carcinoma of the upper urinary tract who undergo nephroureterectomy.
A long-term study found that adding 24 months of antiandrogen therapy with bicalutamide to salvage radiation therapy increased overall survival and prostate cancer–specific survival compared with placebo in men who underwent radical prostatectomy.
