Experts develop set of resolutions, conclusions to provide clarity on testosterone therapy

In an effort to address widespread concerns related to testosterone deficiency (TD) and its treatment with testosterone therapy, a group of international experts has developed a set of resolutions and conclusions to provide clarity for physicians and patients. [More]
Shorter course of prostate cancer radiotherapy could save NHS millions of pounds

Shorter course of prostate cancer radiotherapy could save NHS millions of pounds

A shorter course of prostate cancer radiotherapy, involving fewer hospital visits and higher individual doses of radiotherapy, is as effective as the current standard treatment for both survival and quality of life, a major new study reports. [More]
New study sheds light on sexual health of gay and bisexual men

New study sheds light on sexual health of gay and bisexual men

More gay and bisexual men than ever are getting tested for HIV, according to new data from the National Gay Men's Sex Survey. The survey is the largest of its kind in the UK and sheds light on the sexual health of men who have sex with men. [More]
Scientists identify on/off obesity-induced switch to slow cancer progression

Scientists identify on/off obesity-induced switch to slow cancer progression

Having established that excessive fat tissue can fuel the growth of certain cancers, researchers have turned their attention to the molecular mechanisms involved in the process in the hopes of developing new cancer treatments. [More]
Obese teenagers more likely to develop heart failure in early middle age

Obese teenagers more likely to develop heart failure in early middle age

Research that followed more than 1.6 million Swedish men from adolescence onwards between 1968 and 2005 has shown that those who were overweight as teenagers were more likely to develop heart failure in early middle age. [More]
Study examines effectiveness of high-load resistance training in improving older men’s bone strength

Study examines effectiveness of high-load resistance training in improving older men’s bone strength

Big improvements in bone and muscle strength with no injuries is expected to be the outcome of a Griffith University study training men aged over 50 with low bone mass. [More]
Researchers explore why women have ubiquitous survival advantage than men

Researchers explore why women have ubiquitous survival advantage than men

Women live longer than men. This simple statement holds a tantalizing riddle that Steven Austad, Ph.D., and Kathleen Fischer, Ph.D., of the University of Alabama at Birmingham explore in a perspective piece published in Cell Metabolism on June 14. [More]
Nut consumption may lower risk of overall mortality in prostate cancer patients

Nut consumption may lower risk of overall mortality in prostate cancer patients

In a large prospective study published online in the British Journal of Cancer, researchers looked at the association between nut consumption and prostate cancer risk and mortality among 47,299 men in the Health Professionals Follow-up Study. [More]
Screening PSA levels in younger men could accurately predict future risk of prostate cancer

Screening PSA levels in younger men could accurately predict future risk of prostate cancer

Prostate cancer screening with prostate-specific antigen (PSA) has been shown to reduce death and the spread of prostate cancer to other parts of the body, but the PSA test remains highly controversial as it frequently leads to over diagnosis and over treatment of men who may not be at risk. [More]
PI3K/AKT/mTOR pathway plays key role in prostate tumor growth and progression

PI3K/AKT/mTOR pathway plays key role in prostate tumor growth and progression

The research article - Targeting the PI3K/AKT/mTOR Pathway in Prostate Cancer Development and Progression: Insight to Therapy, by Dr Claudio Festuccia and published in Clinical Cancer Drugs, volume 3, issue 1 - discusses experimental and clinical data on the pharmacological inhibition of the Akt/mTOR pathways.

New research offers more insights into development of Kennedy's disease

New research offers more insights into development of Kennedy's disease

Kennedy's disease leads to progressive muscle wastage. It is a condition that affects only men and it appears between 40 and 50 years of age. There is no specific treatment available. [More]
MRI-guided focal laser ablation could be feasible, safe in prostate cancer patients

MRI-guided focal laser ablation could be feasible, safe in prostate cancer patients

Prostate cancer patients may soon have a new option to treat their disease: laser heat. UCLA researchers have found that focal laser ablation - the precise application of heat via laser to a tumor - is both feasible and safe in men with intermediate risk prostate cancer. [More]
Study finds non-disclosure of sexual orientation among behaviorally bisexual men

Study finds non-disclosure of sexual orientation among behaviorally bisexual men

Research conducted at Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health and Public Health Solutions examined the reasons why men who have had sex with both men and women choose not to disclose their sexual orientation -- particularly to their wives and girlfriends. [More]
Novel methods may help assess multipotent or unipotent fate of mammary gland, prostate stem cells

Novel methods may help assess multipotent or unipotent fate of mammary gland, prostate stem cells

Stem cells ensure the development of tissues, their daily maintenance and their repair following injuries. One of the key questions in the field of stem cell biology is to define the different cell lineages in which stem cells can differentiate into. [More]
