Men with relatively unaggressive prostate tumors unlikely to develop metastatic prostate cancer

Men with relatively unaggressive prostate tumors and whose disease is carefully monitored by urologists are unlikely to develop metastatic prostate cancer or die of their cancers, according to results of a study by researchers at the Brady Urological Institute at Johns Hopkins, who analyzed survival statistics up to 15 years.

Robotically-steered flexible needles may improve diagnostic and therapeutic procedures

Robotically-steered flexible needles may improve diagnostic and therapeutic procedures

Robotically steering flexible needles can reach their intended target in tissue with sub-millimetre level accuracy. This has been demonstrated by the doctoral research of Momen Abayazid, who is affiliated with the research institute MIRA of the University of Twente. An major advantage of steering flexible needles is that one can avoid obstacles or sensitive tissues and can re-orient the path of the needle in real time as you insert the needle. [More]

PSMA PET imaging more precise than MR imaging for detection of high-grade prostate cancer lesions

PSMA PET imaging more precise than MR imaging for detection of high-grade prostate cancer lesions

A molecular imaging biomarker is able to detect fast-growing primary prostate cancer and distinguish it from benign prostate lesions, addressing an unmet clinical need. The new research, published in the July 2015 issue of The Journal of Nuclear Medicine, is significant for patients with suspected prostate cancer that has not been confirmed by standard biopsy.

Testosterone administration not associated with atherosclerosis progression among older men

Testosterone administration not associated with atherosclerosis progression among older men

Among older men with low testosterone levels, testosterone administration for 3 years compared with placebo did not result in a significant difference in the rates of change in atherosclerosis (thickening and hardening of artery walls), nor was it associated with improved overall sexual function or health-related quality of life, according to a study in the August 11 issue of JAMA.

TEAAM trial finds that testosterone has no effect on atherosclerosis progression

TEAAM trial finds that testosterone has no effect on atherosclerosis progression

Testosterone sales have grown rapidly over the last decade, but few studies have examined the long-term effects of taking testosterone on cardiovascular health and other important outcomes. This week, investigators from Brigham and Women's Hospital report the results of the Testosterone's Effects on Atherosclerosis Progression in Aging Men (TEAAM) trial in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

Clinical study shows two-drug combination can prolong survival in men with metastatic prostate cancer

Clinical study shows two-drug combination can prolong survival in men with metastatic prostate cancer

Newly diagnosed patients with metastatic, hormone-sensitive prostate cancer gained a dramatic survival benefit when started on two drugs simultaneously, rather than delaying the second drug until the cancer began to worsen, according to results of a clinical trial led by a Dana-Farber Cancer Institute scientist.
