Prenatal butylparaben exposure causes various endocrine disrupting effects in rats

Research suggests that butylparaben - which is used in cosmetics and skin care products such as sunscreen - have more endocrine disrupting effects than previously thought. [More]
Changes in benign tissue adjacent to prostate tumors could better predict recurrence

Changes in benign tissue adjacent to prostate tumors could better predict recurrence

Changes in benign tissues next to prostate tumors may provide an early warning for patients at higher risk for biochemical recurrence after a radical prostatectomy, a study by researchers at Case Western Reserve University and Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions shows. [More]

New software may help doctors access multiple patient files for cancer treatment

New software may help doctors access multiple patient files for cancer treatment

Doctors increasingly work with large quantities of digitized patient data - and yet the insights it contains often remain unexploited. Fraunhofer researchers have developed a software program that allows doctors to extract information from multiple patient files to quickly obtain new pointers for the treatment of prostate cancer.

Novel robotic rectum may help clinicians detect prostate cancer

A robotic rectum may help doctors and nurses detect prostate cancer. The technology, which consists of prosthetic buttocks and rectum with in-built robotic technology, has been developed by scientists at Imperial College London. [More]
Excess or insufficient sleep may increase diabetes risk in men

Excess or insufficient sleep may increase diabetes risk in men

Men who sleep either fewer or more hours than average may face a greater risk of developing diabetes, according to a new study published in the Endocrine Society's Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism. [More]
Early detection, treatment key to testicular cancer cure

Early detection, treatment key to testicular cancer cure

When women feel a lump in their breast, they usually seek medical attention within a few weeks. Yet men who notice something abnormal in a testicle typically don't see a doctor for two to three months. [More]
Testosterone therapy improves sexual activity in older men

Testosterone therapy improves sexual activity in older men

Older men with low libido and low testosterone levels showed more interest in sex and engaged in more sexual activity when they underwent testosterone therapy, according to a new study published in the Endocrine Society's Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism. [More]
Scientists create protein signatures for accurate diagnosis of prostate cancer

Scientists create protein signatures for accurate diagnosis of prostate cancer

Researchers at the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research and University Health Network in Toronto, along with researchers at the Eastern Virginia Medical School, have created protein signatures that accurately diagnose prostate cancer and can distinguish between patients with aggressive versus non-aggressive disease using a simple urine sample.
