New insights for personalized cancer treatment

Doctors increasingly work with large quantities of digitized patient data – and yet the insights it contains often remain unexploited. Fraunhofer researchers ...

Device Registry Required to Determine Efficacy of Newest Prostate Cancer Treatment

Men diagnosed with prostate cancer in the United States now have another treatment option: high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU). However, the jury is ...

Prognostic factor indicates risk of cancer recurrence following radical prostatectomy

VIENNA - Slightly more than 10% of all patients who undergo successful surgery for prostate cancer have an elevated risk of tumor recurrence afterwards – especially as metastases. Under the microscope, it is possible to identify invasion of the tumour into the lymph and blood vessels, this being the tumour behaviour responsible for the formation of metastases, so that it can be used as a prognostic factor. This has now been demonstrated by Harun Fajkovic of MedUni Vienna's Department of Urology in a study involving 7,000 patients in "Urologic Oncology". Fajkovic will also report on the latest research findings at the largest international congress on prostate cancer "PROSCA", currently taking place in Vienna. ... Full story

Laser ablation becomes increasingly viable treatment for prostate cancer

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. ... Full story

Screening Strategy May Predict Lethal Prostate Cancer Later in Life

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, ... Full story

Computational Method Uncovers New Potential Therapeutic Option for Difficult-to-Treat Subtype of Prostate Cancer

The steroid dexamethasone could potentially deter the growth of a prostate cancer subtype that was previously thought to be difficult to treat with medications, Weill Cornell Medicine researchers report. Their findings were published in the June 2 issue of Cell Reports. ... Full story

FDA approves new diagnostic imaging agent to detect recurrent prostate cancer

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today approved Axumin, a radioactive diagnostic agent for injection. Axumin is indicated for positron emission tomography (PET) imaging in men with suspected prostate cancer recurrence based on elevated prostate specific antigen (PSA) levels following prior treatment. ...

NewYork-Presbyterian and Weill Cornell Medicine Doctors Discuss the Future of Prostate Cancer Screening

In the May 5 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine, Dr. Jonathan Shoag, a resident in the Department of Urology at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center and Weill Cornell Medicine, and Dr. Jim C. Hu, director of the LeFrak Center for Robotic Surgery at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell and the Ronald Lynch Professor of Urologic Oncology at Weill Cornell Medicine, call into question a landmark study that served as the basis for national prostate cancer screening recommendations. ...
