Flawed Study Shows A Sharp Rise in Advanced Prostate Cancer

Yesterday’s post described research performed at Northwestern University that found a sharp increase in the number of men diagnosed with advanced aggressive prostate cancer between 2004 and 2013. The research interpretation raised the possibility that the United States Preventive Task Force (USPTF) decision to recommend against the use of the PSA test for prostate cancer screening was to blame for this high increase of aggressive disease. A number of news media pick up the story as well as this blog. Additional scientific commentary has questioned the research techniques used to draw this conclusion. According the American Cancer Society the study [...]

Reporting A Concerning Increase In The Number Of Men Diagnosed With Advanced Prostate Cancer

According to information from a published report from the Tuesday, July 19, 2016 edition of HealthDay News, there has been an explosion of new cases of advanced prostate cancer in the United States.

They reported that the biggest increase was in the age group of men between 55 to 69 years. They point [...]

Green Is The Color To Be – Nano-Particle That Will Reveal in Real Time That Our Cancer Treatment Is Working

Not yet in prime time, but hopefully soon to begin in human trials is a simple, but possibly very powerful use of nano-particles that could immediately reveal if our individual chemotherapy or immunotherapy is effective. Not all therapies are effective for each of us and knowing quickly if a therapy is working for any individual is vital. Knowing the efficacy of a therapy, in real time, would allow us to more quickly move on to an alternative therapy, if needed and will allow us to stop an ineffective therapy quickly which in turn will save untold suffering from side effects [...]

More From ASCO GU 2016 – ExoDx™ Prostate(IntelliScore): A More Precise, Genetically Informed Prostate Cancer Test from a Simple Urine Sample

The constant hope and conversation of late has surrounded what is referred to as a liquid biopsy. The hope and goal is to no longer need to have an invasive needle biopsy to diagnose and stage prostate cancer. Biopsies are not accurate because there are too many false negatives, they only evaluate the actual tissue sampled and do not take into consideration the un-sampled tissue (which can have a different type or stage of cancer present). They also are painful and worse expose men to the possibility of infections, some of which can be life threatening. We dream of finding [...]
