Androgen Deprivation Prostate Cancer Therapy Linked To Dementia

In elderly patients with prostate cancer, androgen deprivation therapy was linked with subsequent diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease or dementia over a follow-up period of at least 10 years, a new study has found. Previous evidence has been mixed on whether the treatment might be linked with mental decline. But experts say the new results stand […]

Apalutamide Delays Prostate Cancer Metastasis By Over 2 Years

A newly developed drug called apalutamide can delay the progression of a hard-to-treat form of prostate cancer, research shows. The drug, an investigational androgen receptor inhibitor, was the focus of a multi-institutional, phase 3 clinical trial led by investigators from Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). “Our study found that […]

How Adrenergic Nerves Sustain Growth Of Prostate Cancer

Autonomic nerves drive┬áprostate cancer growth by triggering a switch that causes tumour vessels to proliferate, report researchers at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Earlier research, which first implicated nerves in fuelling prostate cancer, prompted the team to conduct a pilot study testing whether beta blockers, commonly used for treating hypertension, can kill cancer cells in […]

Sulforaphane May Suppress Cancer By Influencing Long Noncoding RNAs

Sulforaphane, a dietary compound in broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables known to help prevent prostate cancer, may work through its influence on long, non-coding RNA, researchers from Oregon State University report. The finding provides more evidence for how these long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs), which were once thought to be a type of junk DNA of […]
