Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy - Current Indications.

Klin Onkol 2019 ;32(1):10-24

Background: Stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) is used to treat localized tumor lesions and consists of applying high doses of radiation to a small number of fractions using specially equipped linear accelerators, modern immobilization devices, and imaging methods, which are considered special, advanced techniques in modern day radiotherapy. SBRT is a very well tolerated, non-invasive, short-term treatment that does not require hospitalization or any complicated preparation. Compared to standard radiotherapy techniques, SBRT allows, due to its precision, significantly higher doses to be applied to the target with less damage to surrounding healthy tissues. Read More

József Tímár

Magy Onkol 2019 Mar 2;63(1):5-9. Epub 2019 Jan 2.

2. Sz. Patológiai Intézet, Semmelweis Egyetem, Budapest, Hungary.

Prostate cancer seems to be two diseases: a localized early cancer and a castration-resistant metastatic cancer. While in the localized form the most prevalent genetic alterations are the translocations of the ETS genes, in the castration-resistant form the most prevalent genetic alteration affects androgen receptor and oncosuppressors TP53 and PTEN. The main drivers of the genetic progression of prostate cancer are defects of the DNA-repair systems which are also responsible for the familiar disease. Read More

The influence of BRCA2 mutation on localized prostate cancer.

Nat Rev Urol 2019 Feb 26. Epub 2019 Feb 26.

Monash Partners Comprehensive Cancer Consortium and Cancer Program, Biomedicine Discovery Institute, Prostate Cancer Research Group, Department of Anatomy and Developmental Biology and Department of Physiology, Monash University, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

A key challenge in the management of localized prostate cancer is the identification of men with a high likelihood of progression to an advanced, incurable stage. Patients who harbour germline BRCA2 mutations have worse clinical outcomes than noncarriers when treated with surgery or radiotherapy. Insights from different disciplines have improved our understanding of why patients with BRCA2-mutant tumours have a high likelihood of failing on conventional management after diagnosis. Read More

Green tea extract for prevention of prostate cancer progression in patients on active surveillance.

Oncotarget 2018 Dec 28;9(102):37798-37806. Epub 2018 Dec 28.

H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center & Research Institute, GU Oncology MMG, Tampa, FL 33612-9497, USA.

Background: Active surveillance (AS) has evolved as a management strategy for men with low grade prostate cancer (PCa). However, these patients report anxiety, doubts about the possible progression of the disease as well as higher decisional conflict regarding selection of active surveillance, and have been reported to ultimately opt for treatment without any major change in tumor characteristics. Currently, there is a paucity of research that systematically examines alternate strategies for this target population. Read More

Molecular Hallmarks of Multiparametric Magnetic Resonance Imaging Visibility in Prostate Cancer.

Eur Urol 2019 Jan 24. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

Department of Urology, David Geffen School of Medicine, University of California, Los Angeles, CA, USA; Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center, David Geffen School of Medicine, University of California, Los Angeles, CA, USA; Institute of Urologic Oncology, University of California, Los Angeles, CA, USA; Department of Urology, David Geffen School of Medicine, 300 Stein Plaza, Los Angeles, CA 90095, USA. Electronic address:

Multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI) has transformed the management of localized prostate cancer by improving identification of clinically significant disease at diagnosis. Approximately 20% of primary prostate tumors are invisible to mpMRI, and we hypothesize that this invisibility reflects fundamental molecular properties of the tumor. We therefore profiled the genomes and transcriptomes of 40 International Society of Urological Pathology grade 2 tumors: 20 mpMRI-invisible (Prostate Imaging-Reporting and Data System [PI-RADS] v2 <3) and 20 mpMRI-visible (PI-RADS v2 5) tumors.

Time Interval to Biochemical Failure as a Surrogate End Point in Locally Advanced Prostate Cancer: Analysis of Randomized Trial NRG/RTOG 9202.

J Clin Oncol 2019 Jan 7;37(3):213-221. Epub 2018 Dec 7.

12 Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles, CA.

Background: In prostate cancer, end points that reliably portend prognosis and treatment benefit (surrogate end points) can accelerate therapy development. Although surrogate end point candidates have been evaluated in the context of radiotherapy and short-term androgen deprivation (AD), potential surrogates under long-term (24 month) AD, a proven therapy in high-risk localized disease, have not been investigated.

Materials And Methods: In the NRG/RTOG 9202 randomized trial (N = 1,520) of short-term AD (4 months) versus long-term AD (LTAD; 28 months), the time interval free of biochemical failure (IBF) was evaluated in relation to clinical end points of prostate cancer-specific survival (PCSS) and overall survival (OS).

Rethinking active surveillance for prostate cancer in African American men.

Transl Androl Urol 2018 Sep;7(Suppl 4):S397-S410

Department of Urology, Tulane University School of Medicine, New Orleans, LA, USA.

Active surveillance (AS) is a treatment modality for prostate cancer that aims to simultaneously avoid overtreatment and allow for the timely intervention of localized disease. AS has become the de facto standard of care for most men with low-risk prostate cancer. However, few African American (AA) men were included in the prospective observational cohorts that resulted in a paradigm shift in treatment recommendations from active intervention toward AS.

Division of Oncology, S.Orsola-Malpighi Hospital, Bologna, Italy.

Management of localized and advanced prostate cancer benefits from several therapeutic options with a surprising improvement in terms of clinical outcome. The selection of patients more likely to benefit from a specific approach still remains a key issue as well as the early identification of patients with aggressive disease which could benefit from a more aggressive treatment strategy. The lack of reliable bio-marker in castration resistant setting able to monitor response to treatment and early inform about tumor progression is an emerging issue. Read More

Urol Oncol 2018 11 9;36(11):475-487. Epub 2018 Oct 9.

Department of Radiation Oncology, Winship Cancer Institute at Emory University, Atlanta, GA; Winship Cancer Institute at Emory University, Atlanta, GA.

In attempt to improve long-term disease control outcomes for high-risk prostate cancer, numerous clinical trials have tested the addition of chemotherapy (CTX)-either adjuvant or neoadjuvant-to definitive local therapy, either radical prostatectomy (RP) or radiation therapy (RT). Neoadjuvant trials generally confirm safety, feasibility, and pre-RP PSA reduction, but rates of pathologic complete response are rare, and no indications for neoadjuvant CTX have been firmly established. Adjuvant regimens have included CTX alone or in combination with androgen deprivation therapy (ADT). Read More

Metastatic Castration-Sensitive Prostate Cancer: Optimizing Patient Selection and Treatment.

Am Soc Clin Oncol Educ Book 2018 May;38:363-371

From the Division of Oncology, University of Utah/Huntsman Cancer Institute, Salt Lake City, UT; Division of Oncology, University of Washington/Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Seattle, WA; Department of Medical Oncology, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Boston, MA; Division of Hematology/Oncology, University of California-San Francisco, Helen Diller Comprehensive Cancer Center, San Francisco, CA.

The treatment landscape for metastatic castration-sensitive prostate cancer (mCSPC) has rapidly evolved over the past 5 years. Although androgen-deprivation therapy (ADT) is still the backbone of treatment, the addition of docetaxel or abiraterone acetate has improved outcomes for patients with mCSPC and become standard of care. With multiple treatment options available for patients with mCSPC, treatment selection to optimize patient outcomes has become increasingly difficult. Read More

Genetics and biology of prostate cancer.

Genes Dev 2018 09;32(17-18):1105-1140

Department of Cancer Biology, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, Texas 77030, USA.

Despite the high long-term survival in localized prostate cancer, metastatic prostate cancer remains largely incurable even after intensive multimodal therapy. The lethality of advanced disease is driven by the lack of therapeutic regimens capable of generating durable responses in the setting of extreme tumor heterogeneity on the genetic and cell biological levels. Here, we review available prostate cancer model systems, the prostate cancer genome atlas, cellular and functional heterogeneity in the tumor microenvironment, tumor-intrinsic and tumor-extrinsic mechanisms underlying therapeutic resistance, and technological advances focused on disease detection and management.

New Insights in Prostate Cancer Development and Tumor Therapy: Modulation of Nuclear Receptors and the Specific Role of Liver X Receptors.

Int J Mol Sci 2018 Aug 28;19(9). Epub 2018 Aug 28.

Université Clermont Auvergne, GReD, CNRS UMR 6293, INSERM U1103, 28, place Henri Dunant, BP38, F63001 Clermont-Ferrand, France.

Prostate cancer (PCa) incidence has been dramatically increasing these last years in westernized countries. Though localized PCa is usually treated by radical prostatectomy, androgen deprivation therapy is preferred in locally advanced disease in combination with chemotherapy. Unfortunately, PCa goes into a castration-resistant state in the vast majority of the cases, leading to questions about the molecular mechanisms involving the steroids and their respective nuclear receptors in this relapse.

Nutraceuticals in prostate cancer therapeutic strategies and their neo-adjuvant use in diverse populations.

NPJ Precis Oncol 2018 25;2:15. Epub 2018 Jul 25.

Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, Aurora, CO USA.

Prostate cancer (PCa) is the most frequently diagnosed malignancy and second leading cause of cancer mortality in American males. Notably, men of African descent in the United States and Caribbean have the highest PCa mortality rates compared to men with European ancestry. Although current therapeutics are quite potent and effective, disease resistance, progression to metastasis, therapy-associated toxicities and efficacy-related issues in diverse populations develop over time.

Blood-based microRNAs as diagnostic biomarkers to discriminate localized prostate cancer from benign prostatic hyperplasia and allow cancer-risk stratification.

Oncol Lett 2018 Jul 22;16(1):1357-1365. Epub 2018 May 22.

Department of Surgery, College of Medicine and Medical Sciences, Arabian Gulf University, Manama 329, Kingdom of Bahrain.

Prostate cancer (PCa) is the second most diagnosed malignancy, and the leading cause of cancer-associated mortality among males. Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) has long been used for the detection of PCa. However, PSA levels increase in PCa and benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), and are associated with a poor disease outcome. Read More

Disparities in Hispanic/Latino and non-Hispanic Black men with low-risk prostate cancer and eligible for active surveillance: a population-based study.

Prostate Cancer Prostatic Dis 2018 11 9;21(4):533-538. Epub 2018 Jul 9.

Department of Urology, University of Miami, Miami, FL, USA.

Background: Non-Hispanic Black (NHB) men are at an increased risk for aggressive prostate cancer (PCa), making active surveillance (AS) potentially less optimal in this population. This concern has not been explored in other minority populations-specifically, Hispanic/Latino men. We recently found that Mexican-American men demonstrate an increased risk of PCa-specific mortality, and we hypothesized that they may also be at risk for an adverse outcome on AS. Read More

Characterizing trends in treatment modalities for localized muscle-invasive bladder cancer in the pre-immunotherapy era.

World J Urol 2018 Nov 14;36(11):1767-1774. Epub 2018 Jun 14.

Division of Urological Surgery, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School, 45 Francis St, ASB II-3, Boston, MA, USA.

Introduction: Muscle-invasive bladder cancer (MIBC) is an aggressive disease for which treatment strategies are continuously evolving. We characterized trends in treatment modalities for MIBC from 2004 to 2013 (the "pre-immunotherapy era") and identified predictors of receiving the current standard of care treatment: neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) followed by radical cystectomy (RC).

Methods: We used the National Cancer Database to identify individuals diagnosed with clinically localized MIBC from 2004 to 2013. Read More

Comprehensive molecular classification of localized prostate adenocarcinoma reveals a tumour subtype predictive of non-aggressive disease.

Ann Oncol 2018 Aug;29(8):1814-1821

Research Center for Prostatic Pathologies (CeRePP), Paris, France.

Background: Management of localized prostate cancer (PCa) is a major clinical challenge since most of these cancers would not evolve but a majority of patients will still undergo a life-changing radical surgery. Molecular studies have shown that PCa can be classified according to their genomic alterations but none of the published PCa molecular classifications could identify a subtype corresponding to non-evolutive tumours.

Materials And Methods: Multi-omics molecular profiling was carried out on post-radical prostatectomy material from a cohort of 130 patients with localized PCa. Read More
