Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) screening was associated with similar decrease in incidence of advanced prostate cancer (PCa) among statin users vs nonusers, but less detection of low-grade localized tumours in the former than the latter — indicating that statin does not compromise the benefits of PSA-based screening while also conferring the benefit of less overdiagnosis of low-risk tumours.
Treatment with docetaxel appears beneficial in patients with low- and high-burden metastatic hormone-sensitive prostate cancer, a study has shown. However, no consistent differences for overall survival are seen in subgroup analyses as regards volume of metastatic disease.
Fusion biopsy with magnetic resonance imaging and ultrasonography (MRI/US) is an efficient method of detecting clinically significant prostate cancer (csPCa) in biopsy-naïve men with prostate specific antigen (PSA) levels 4–10 ng/mL, a new study has found.
Spatially related clusters of urothelial carcinoma (UC) appear to correlate with locoregional environmental exposures rather than tobacco exposure, suggests a study. Such clusters may also be associated with socioeconomic disparities.
Reduced-dose treatment with androgen receptor pathway inhibitors (ARPI) lead to poorer oncological outcomes relative to full-dose regimens in castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC), a recent study has found.
Use of the oral antiandrogen chlormadinone at a low dose led to improvements in persistence rate of active surveillance (AS), PSA* and testosterone levels and prostate volume, and quality of life (QoL) in men with low-risk prostate cancer (PCa), the PROSAS study has shown.
