Detection of overall and index prostate cancer is comparable in three Tesla multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with and without an endorectal coil, a study has found. However, the endorectal coil subcohort has markedly higher detection of posterior and peripheral prostate cancer, as well as detection of anterior and transition zone prostate cancer.
A significant association exists between tumour volume-related parameters and radical prostatectomy, suggests a study. However, these parameters do not add important discriminatory value to standard clinicopathological variable for radical prostatectomy prediction or provide benefit across a range of clinically relevant decision thresholds.
The minimally invasive water vapour thermal therapy represents a viable approach for thermal ablative reduction of benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH), providing urinary symptom relief and quality of life improvement that are sustained over 4 years, a study has shown.
Olanzapine confers a modest therapeutic effect on weight compared with placebo in adult outpatients with anorexia nervosa, a study has shown. However, it does not appear to offer significant benefit for psychological symptoms.
A latest study at ISC 2019 shows that even patients with large-core stroke damage can have a good outcome after mechanical clot removal with endovascular thrombectomy (EVT), depending on the size of the infarct and time lapses between stroke onset and treatment.
Treatment with secukinumab results in a higher rate of remission or low-disease activity at week 16 in patients with psoriatic arthritis as compared with placebo, according to a posthoc analysis of the FUTURE 2 study. This effect is sustained at 2 years and is evident in both tumour necrosis factor inhibitor-experienced and -naïve patients.
