Prostate Cancer

An uncommon but significantly burdensome sequela of therapy for prostate cancer is pubic bone osteomyelitis in association with a pubosymphyseal urinary fistula.

Men who receive testosterone replacement therapy had an increased rate of favorable-risk prostate cancer compared to those who did not use the therapy, and a decreased rate of aggressive prostate cancer.

A mathematical approach revealed a set of criteria that could help define prostate cancer patients with poor prognosis, according to a new analysis. This could help many patients avoid overtreatment.

Men with painful bone metastases from prostate cancer may be able to achieve clinically meaningful improvements in pain and quality of life as early as 10 days after undergoing radiotherapy.

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.

“Liquid biopsy” analyses of circulating tumor DNA from blood samples potentially reveal prognostic information about metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer, and might point the way for development of new targeted treatments.

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.
