Efficacy of Enzalutamide in Castrate-Resistant Prostate Cancer in Men with Viseral Metastases

We know that men with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) and visceral metastases have a worse prognosis than those with nonvisceral metastases. The important question we need to understand is what, of our currently available treatments, might be effective for this more aggressive and deadly type of prostate cancer? Results of the phase 3 AFFIRM clinical trial have demonstrated that treatment with the androgen receptor inhibitor enzalutamide (Xtandi) resulted in significant improvements in outcomes for men with mCRPC. This blog post discusses the efficacy of enzalutamide among men from the AFFIRM trial who had visceral disease. Men who were in [...]

Theoretically, this is correct, but for many of us, despite having this diagnosis, we will not die from the prostate cancer! Treatment today allows us to delay the cancer long enough that we will [...]

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Treats Prostate Cancer Radiation Induced Hematuria

Post-radiation hematuria (PRH), or blood clots in the urine sometimes accompanied with bladder pain or pain in the back, has been a common side effect of radiation delivered to the pelvis. This type of radiation treatment is common as a primary prostate cancer treatment as well as for men who have a prostate cancer recurrence post surgery. One treatment for PRH, which has not been studied a lot is hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBO). Researchers evaluated the efficacy of HBO in the treatment of men suffering from PRH. Their retrospective study included all men with PRH treated with HBO in a [...]
