Dietary tomato inhibits angiogenesis in TRAMP prostate cancer but is not protective with a Western-style diet in this pilot study.

Sci Rep 2021 Sep 17;11(1):18548. Epub 2021 Sep 17.

Division of Nutritional Sciences, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Urbana, IL, 61801, USA.

Prostate cancer (PCa) remains the second most diagnosed cancer worldwide. Higher body weight is associated with chronic inflammation, increased angiogenesis, and treatment-resistant tumor phenotypes. Dietary tomato reduces PCa risk, which may be due to tomato inhibition of angiogenesis and disruption of androgen signaling. Read More

Training Convolutional Networks for Prostate Segmentation With Limited Data.

IEEE Access 2021 27;9:109214-109223. Epub 2021 Jul 27.

Department of Radiology, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN 55455, USA.

Multi-zonal segmentation is a critical component of computer-aided diagnostic systems for detecting and staging prostate cancer. Previously, convolutional neural networks such as the U-Net have been used to produce fully automatic multi-zonal prostate segmentation on magnetic resonance images (MRIs) with performance comparable to human experts, but these often require large amounts of manually segmented training data to produce acceptable results. For institutions that have limited amounts of labeled MRI exams, it is not clear how much data is needed to train a segmentation model, and which training strategy should be used to maximize the value of the available data.

Fabrication of stable multivariate metal-organic frameworks with excellent adsorption performance toward bisphenols from environmental samples.

Talanta 2021 Dec 21;235:122818. Epub 2021 Aug 21.

State Key Laboratory of Environmental and Biological Analysis, Department of Chemistry, Hong Kong Baptist University, Hong Kong, China.

As a type of environmental endocrine disrupting chemicals, bisphenols (BPs) have a certain embryonic toxicity and teratogenicity, which can significantly increase the risks of breast cancer, prostate cancer, leukemia and other cancers. In this work, stable multivariate metal-organic frameworks (UiO-66-NH/TCPP) were synthesized via in situ one-pot method and used as miniaturized dispersive solid-phase extraction (dμSPE) sorbents for extraction of trace BPs from environmental samples. The phase purity, crystal morphology and physical properties of UiO-66-NH/TCPP samples were varied by adjusting the mass ratio of TCPP. Read More

Lymphocyte-to-monocyte ratio is a predictor of clinically significant prostate cancer at prostate biopsy.

Prostate 2021 Sep 13. Epub 2021 Sep 13.

Department of Urology, Seoul National University Boramae Medical Center, Seoul, Korea.

Background: Inflammation plays critical roles at different stages of carcinogenesis and cancer progression. Several previous studies showed conflicting results for the predictive role of systemic inflammation markers in the detection of clinically significant prostate cancers (CSPCs). We aimed to determine the predictive roles of lymphocyte-to-monocyte (LMR) and eosinophil-to-lymphocyte ratios (ELR) in the detection of CSPC at standard 12-core transrectal ultrasound-guided prostate biopsy (12-core-TRUS-Bx) using our large-cohort database.

Bioelectric Impedance Analysis Test Improves the Detection of Prostate Cancer in Biopsy Candidates: A Multifeature Decision Support System.

Front Oncol 2021 27;11:555277. Epub 2021 Aug 27.

Department of Information Engineering & Research Center "E. Piaggio", University of Pisa, Pisa, Italy.

Prostate cancer (PCa) gold-standard diagnosis relies on prostate biopsy, which is currently overly recommended since other available noninvasive tools such as prostate-specific antigen (PSA) multiparametric MRI (mMRI) showed low diagnostic accuracy or high costs, respectively. The aim of the study was to determine the accuracy of a novel Bioelectric Impedance Analysis (BIA) test endorectal probe for the selection of patients candidate to prostate biopsy and in particular the clinical value of three different parameters such as resistance (R), reactance (Xc), and phase angle (PA) degree. One-hundred twenty-three consecutive candidates to prostate biopsy and 40 healthy volunteers were enrolled. Read More

Automatic radiotherapy delineation quality assurance on prostate MRI with deep learning in a multicentre clinical trial.

Phys Med Biol 2021 Sep 10. Epub 2021 Sep 10.

Institute of Medical Physics, University of Sydney School of Physics, Sydney, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA.

Volume delineation quality assurance (QA) is particularly important in clinical trial settings where consistent protocol implementation is required, as outcomes will affect future as well current patients. Currently, where feasible, this is conducted manually, which is time consuming and resource intensive. Although previous studies mostly focused on automating delineation QA on CT, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is being increasingly used in radiotherapy treatment. Read More

Treatment Strategies for High-Risk Localized and Locally Advanced and Oligometastatic Prostate Cancer.

Cancers (Basel) 2021 Sep 5;13(17). Epub 2021 Sep 5.

Department of Integrative Cancer Therapy and Urology, Kanazawa University Graduate School of Medical Science, 13-1 Takara-machi, Kanazawa 920-8640, Ishikawa, Japan.

Despite the significant advances in the treatment of high-risk prostate cancer, patients with very high-risk features such as being locally advanced (clinical stage T3-4 or minimal nodal involvement), having a high Gleason pattern, or with oligometastasis may still have a poor prognosis despite aggressive treatment. Multidisciplinary treatment with both local and systemic therapies is thought to be effective, however, unfortunately, there is still no standard treatment. However, in recent years, local definitive therapy using a combination of radiotherapy and androgen deprivation is being supported by several randomized clinical trials. Read More

Intraoperative Digital Analysis of Ablation Margins (DAAM) by Fluorescent Confocal Microscopy to Improve Partial Prostate Gland Cryoablation Outcomes.

Cancers (Basel) 2021 Aug 30;13(17). Epub 2021 Aug 30.

Department of Urology and Organ Transplantation, University of Foggia, 71122 Foggia, Italy.

Partial gland cryoablation (PGC) aims at destroying prostate cancer (PCa) foci while sparing the unaffected prostate tissue and the functionally relevant structures around the prostate. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) has boosted PGC, but available evidence suggests that ablation margins may be positive due to MRI-invisible lesions. This study aimed at determining the potential role of intraoperative digital analysis of ablation margins (DAAM) by fluoresce confocal microscopy (FCM) of biopsy cores taken during prostate PGC.

Extraperitoneal Single-Port Robot-Assisted Radical Prostatectomy.

J Endourol 2021 Sep;35(S2):S100-S105

Department of Urology, University of Rochester Medical Center, Rochester, New York, USA.

Robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) is currently the standard minimally invasive procedure for the surgical management of localized prostate cancer. It has been shown that the minimally invasive robotic approach offers comparable oncologic and functional outcomes with potential advantages, including decreased blood loss, shorter hospital stay, and recovery period when compared with open surgery. Generally, the transperitoneal RARP approach is the most commonly performed among robotic surgeons, owing to its wider space and early adoption. Read More

Novel potent anti-STEAP1 bispecific antibody to redirect T cells for cancer immunotherapy.

J Immunother Cancer 2021 Sep;9(9)

Pediatrics, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York, New York, USA

Background: The prognosis for metastatic Ewing sarcoma family of tumors (EFT) is still poor despite high-dose chemotherapy and radiation treatment. Immunotherapies hold promise, but cancer antigen-targeting immunotherapies have largely failed to induce effective T cell receptor-mediated antitumor response. However, T cell-engaging bispecific antibodies (T-BsAbs) have yet to be adequately explored. Read More
