Multivitamin use may reduce prostate Ca recurrence
Long-term use of a multivitamin may protect against recurrence of prostate cancer, particularly in those men who have had radical prostatectomy.
PCa Tx delays development of non-metastatic disease in some patients
Enzalutamide (XTANDI) with androgen deprivation therapy delays the development of metastatic disease in men with M0 castration-resistant prostate cancer compared with ADT alone, according to results from the randomized phase III PROSPER study.
Study: Active surveillance uptake remains low
The overall use of active surveillance in men with low-risk prostate cancer is 14.2%, according to an examination of the National Cancer Data Base.
IC/BPS: One-fourth of patients have Hunner lesions
About one-fourth of patients with interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome have Hunner lesions in the bladder visible on cystoscopy.
Repeat hydrodistention found safe in treating IC
Repeated hydrodistention as therapy for interstitial cystitis has a low complication rate and does not decrease bladder capacity over time.
Genomic testing linked to higher surveillance uptake
In men with clinically low-risk prostate cancer managed in community-based urology practices, utilization of active surveillance as initial management is higher among those who undergo genomic testing.
CCP score further risk stratifies surveillance candidates
Use of a cell cycle progression genomics test (Prolaris) can further stratify risk in men who are candidates for active surveillance based on clinical criteria, and therefore may have a role in decision-making in men with early-stage prostate cancer, researchers say.
Single-use scope yields 45-min average surgery time
Flexible ureteroscopy using a digital single-use flexible ureteroscope known as PUSEN achieves stone-free rates on par with reusable flexible ureteroscopes, with a total surgery time averaging 45 minutes.
Two-drug therapy for advanced UC shows superior PFS
Adding ramucirumab (CYRAMZA) to standard docetaxel (Taxotere) improved progression-free survival compared with docetaxel alone in patients with advanced or metastatic urothelial cancer who have progressed on platinum-based chemotherapy.
Single-use ureteroscope shows efficacy for routine URS
A new single-use digital flexible ureteroscope (LithoVue) compares favorably in performance to reusable scopes, at least for routine urteroscopy, with a possible advantage of being more economical.
