An IgG-based bispecific antibody for improved dual targeting in PSMA-positive cancer.

EMBO Mol Med 2021 Feb 29;13(2):e11902. Epub 2020 Dec 29.

Department of Immunology, Institute for Cell Biology, Eberhard Karls University Tuebingen, German Cancer Consortium (DKTK), Partner Site Tuebingen, Tuebingen, Germany.

The prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) has been demonstrated in numerous studies to be expressed specifically on prostate carcinoma cells and on the neovasculature of several other cancer entities. However, the simultaneous expression of PSMA on both, tumor cells as well as tumor vessels remains unclear, even if such "dual" expression would constitute an important asset to facilitate sufficient influx of effector cells to a given tumor site. We report here on the generation of a PSMA antibody, termed 10B3, which exerts superior dual reactivity on sections of prostate carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma of the lung. Read More

Metastatic squamous cell carcinoma transformed from prostatic adenocarcinoma following androgen deprivation therapy: A case report with clinicopathologic and molecular findings.

Diagn Cytopathol 2020 Dec 6;48(12):E14-E17. Epub 2020 Jul 6.

VA Palo Alto Health Care System, Pathology and Laboratory Service, Palo Alto, California, USA.

Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the prostate is a rare and clinically aggressive entity that may arise de novo or through transformation of prostatic adenocarcinoma, typically following hormonal or radiation therapy. Confirmation of prostatic origin, especially when evaluating a metastatic focus, often requires correlation with clinical and imaging findings, as the morphologic and immunohistochemical features of SCC are not organ-specific. Comprehensive genomic profiling (CGP) may provide additional information useful for confirming the primary site and for identifying potential targeted therapy options. Read More

Incidentally Detected F-FDG-Avid Prostate Cancer Diagnosed Using a Novel Fusion Biopsy Platform.

J Endourol Case Rep 2019 30;5(2):68-70. Epub 2019 May 30.

The James Buchanan Brady Urological Institute and Department of Urology, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland.

Localized prostate cancer rarely undergoes a shift in metabolism towards aerobic glycolysis, a process known as the Warburg Effect. Because of this, positron emission tomography (PET)/CT imaging using 2-deoxy-2-[F]fluoro-d-glucose (F-FDG) is uncommonly used to evaluate patients with early-stage prostate cancer. However, men undergoing an F-FDG PET/CT for unrelated reasons will on occasion be found to have radiotracer uptake within the prostate gland. Read More
