A recent study analyzed response to treatment of oligometastatic prostate cancer with stereotactic ablative radiotherapy and found improved oncologic outcomes among men.
Prostate-specific membrane antigen PET/CT was found to be a suitable replacement for conventional imaging in patients with prostate cancer, providing superior accuracy to the combined findings of CT and bone scanning.
In this study, polypharmacy during the 6-month time period pre-IV chemotherapy was highly predictive of post-chemotherapy inpatient hospitalization.
These data suggest that clinicians should prescribe a short-term exercise program at the beginning of ADT to attenuate these important treatment-related side-effects.
The Relationship Between Checkpoint Inhibitors and the Gut Microbiome and Its Application in Prostate Cancer
This review article discusses the concepts of a tumor microenvironment and a gut microbiome and their effects on responses to checkpoint inhibitors (CPIs). It also reviews recent research investigating these 3 topics, and how it can be applied to using CPIs in prostate cancer.
Pneumocystis jirovecii Pneumonia in Patients With Metastatic Prostate Cancer on Corticosteroids for Malignant Spinal Cord Compression: Two Case Reports and a Guideline Review
Two case reports and a review of PCP in patients with solid tumors.
HSD3B1 may help identify more men who are likely to benefit from escalated androgen receptor axis inhibition beyond gonadal testosterone suppression according to the researchers.
The use of statins, alone or in combination with metformin, was found to be associated with lower all-cause and prostate cancer mortality among high-risk patients, particularly in post-diagnostic settings.
Phase II trial results found that phenelzine, a monoamine oxidase inhibitor typically used as an antidepressant, showed promise for patients with biochemical recurrent castrate-sensitive prostate cancer.
In this study, researchers suggested that patients who play a more active role in making decisions about their prostate cancer surgery are less likely to experience “decision regret” about their choices.
