Why prostate cancer is more aggressive in obese patients

Obesity has direct consequences on health and is associated with the onset of aggressive cancers, but the mechanisms underlying this phenomenon are little known. Researchers from the Institut de Pharmacologie et Biologie Structurale (CNRS/Université Toulouse III - Paul Sabatier)1 have recently elucidated one of these mechanisms in prostate cancer, one of the most common cancers in men: in obese patients, the adipose tissue surrounding the prostate gland facilitates the propagation of tumor cells outside the prostate. A patent2 has been filed for these results, which open new avenues for the treatment of prostate cancer, and are published in Nature Communications on January 12, 2016. ... Full story

Study: Screening for prostate cancer in kidney transplant candidates may be harmful, not helpful

A team of Emory kidney transplant and urology researchers has determined that PSA (prostate-specific antigen) screening for prostate cancer may be more harmful than helpful in male kidney transplant candidates. The researchers say the screenings do not appear to prolong survival, and may delay the process for a kidney transplant. ... Full story

Exercise could work as treatment for prostate cancer

A newly-launched Cancer Research UK study could be the first step towards exercise training being introduced as a new NHS treatment for prostate cancer. The PANTERA study, led by Sheffield Hallam University, will focus on 50 men who have the disease, but whose cancer has not spread. ... Full story

UVA Prostate Cancer Discovery May Make It Easier to Kill Cancer Cells

A newly discovered connection between two common prostate cancer treatments may soon make prostate cancer cells easier to destroy. Drugs that could capitalize on the discovery are already in the pipeline, and a clinical trial to test whether the finding could improve treatments for prostate cancer patients could be only a few years away. ...
