Use of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is common among patients with prostate cancer and has seen an increase among those who are newly diagnosed with the disease, a study has shown. Multivitamins and omega-3 fatty acids are the most commonly used CAMs from 1996 to 2016, while vitamin D use has increased dramatically from 2006 to 2010.
The use of SGLT-2* inhibitors was not associated with a higher risk of severe or nonsevere urinary tract infections (UTIs) in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D) compared with DPP**-4 inhibitors or GLP-1*** receptor agonists, a population-based cohort study shows.
A device-guided, slow-paced respiration leads to modest improvements in perceived stress at 12 weeks among women with an overactive bladder, but it is not superior to a music-listening control for reducing urinary symptoms or changing autonomic function, results of a new study have shown.
The addition of radium-223 (Ra223) to enzalutamide for the treatment of mCRPC* was associated with increased fracture risk, which was entirely abolished with mandated use of bone-protecting agents (BPAs) such as zoledronic acid and denosumab, according to interim results of the EORTC 1333 (PEACE III) trial.
The addition of abobotulinumtoxinA (aboBTX-A) – one of three commercial preparations of botulinum toxin (BTX) type A – to phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors (PDE5-Is) or prostaglandin E1 (PGE1) led to favourable outcomes in men with erectile dysfunction (ED), a new study shows.
Ketorolac, a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) and cyclooxygenase inhibitor, is effective and safe in preventing catheter-related bladder discomfort (CRBD) in men who have undergone robot-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (RALP), highlighting its potential role in postoperative CRBD management, a study shows.
Use of the novel penile traction therapy (PTT) device, RestoreX, in combination with injections of collagenase Clostridium histolyticum (CCH), led to significant improvements in penile deformities due to Peyronie’s disease (PD), a study has shown.
