Scientists investigate if City of Hope’s natural supplement derived from white button mushroom could lower prostate-specific antigen levels, an indicator of prostate cancer
UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center researchers found that targeting androgen receptors – a type of protein specific to men – may destroy cancer cells. Focusing on this male protein variant common in malignant bladder tumor cells may serve as a new avenue for treating bladder cancer in men.
A new study arm opens, expanding patients’ potential to qualify for the trial when they may not have other options; the available treatments target tumor defects with drugs that show efficacy evidence; testing labs continue to identify trial candidates
Case Western Reserve University-developed imaging agent for MRI prostate cancer detection gets FDA approval for safety trials, set to begin in May in Columbus
A new, urine-based test for aggressive prostate cancer being developed at the University of Michigan uses next-generation sequencing to assess 15 biomarkers to find cancer that can be missed by biopsies or imaging tests.

Researchers have discovered a new way to transform the tissues surrounding prostate tumors to help the body’s immune cells fight the cancer. The discovery, made in human and mouse cells and in laboratory mice, could lead to improvements in immunotherapy treatments for prostate cancer, the second most common cancer in men in the U.S.
Strategy focuses on reprogramming tissues surrounding the tumor to help the body’s immune system attack the cancer
Researchers Awarded Funding to Lead National Discussion on Active Surveillance for Men with Low-Risk Prostate Cancer
Researchers at the University of Maryland School of Medicine (UMSOM) have been awarded $100,000 in funding through the Eugene Washington PCORI Engagement Awards, an initiative of the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI). The funds will support a national discussion and conference aimed at identifying evidence gaps to guide future research on the use of active surveillance to monitor low-risk prostate cancers. This serves as an alternative to immediate treatment with surgery, radiation or hormone therapy which all have potential debilitating side effects.

Exposure in the womb to a drug used to prevent miscarriage appears to raise the offspring’s cancer risk decades later, especially for colorectal and prostate cancers, researchers have found. They will present the results of their new study Tuesday at ENDO 2021, the Endocrine Society’s annual meeting.

Brazilian researchers tested the capacity of different materials to produce sensors for the detection of PCA3, a gene that is overexpressed in prostate cancer. The technique can also be used to diagnose infectious diseases, including COVID-19.
This Oncotarget study had significantly lower mutation rates in ASXL1 and SETBP1, and a higher rate of muTET2/wtASXL1
The Oncotarget data shed new light on the biochemical mechanisms behind ibuprofen’s action on alternative spliced RAC1B and may support its use in personalized approaches to CRC therapy or chemoprevention regimens.
Dr. Glenn J. Hanna from CCR/NCI in Bethesda, MD as well as The Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston Massachusetts said, “Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) is a relatively rare cancer, with roughly 400 cases per 100,000 persons each year in the United States”

The understanding of many common cancers could be revolutionized by the discovery that in some cases the disease is partly triggered by large numbers of inherited genetic mutations — previously thought to have little impact on cancer risk

Study finds high tumor mutation burden predicts immunotherapy response in some, but not all, cancers
A high rate of genetic mutations within a tumor, known as high tumor mutation burden, was only useful for predicting immunotherapy responses in a subset of cancer types, suggesting that this may not reliably be used as a universal biomarker.
