Journal: N. Engl. J. Med.. 2016 Aug;375(5):443-53.

 

Inherited mutations in DNA-repair genes such as BRCA2 are associated with increased risks of lethal prostate cancer. Although the prevalence of germline mutations in DNA-repair genes among men with localized prostate cancer who are unselected for family predisposition is insufficient ...

Redirecting abiraterone metabolism to fine-tune prostate cancer anti-androgen therapy.
 

Author(s): Zhenfei Li, Mohammad Alyamani, Jianneng Li, Kevin Rogacki, Mohamed Abazeed, Sunil K Upadhyay, Steven P Balk, Mary-Ellen Taplin, Richard J Auchus, Nima Sharifi

Journal:

 

Abiraterone blocks androgen synthesis and prolongs survival in patients with castration-resistant prostate cancer, which is otherwise driven by intratumoral androgen synthesis. Abiraterone is metabolized in patients to Δ(4)-abiraterone (D4A), which has even greater anti-tumour activity ...

Author(s): Naohiro Fujimoto

Journal: J. UOEH. 2016 Jun;38(2):129-38.

 

After the introduction of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) screening, prostate cancer diagnosis has shifted to early and curative stages, although 10-20% of patients still present with metastatic and incurable cancer. Prostate cancer is androgen-dependent, and most patients with prostate ...
