Prostate Tumor Biology Differs By Race

SAN DIEGO—Genetic analyses suggest that prostate cancer in African-American men is distinctly different as compared with European-American men, according to researchers at the National Cancer Institute (NCI) in Bethesda, Md.

Sextant Biopsy Alone May Miss Tumors

Prostate biopsies in men with a PSA level of 4.01-10.0 ng/mL and normal findings on digital rectal examination (DRE) should include lateral cores in addition to the sextant biopsy, according to investigators.

NSAIDs Lower PCa Death Risk

SAN FRANCISCO—High exposure to aspirin and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) is associated with decreased prostate cancer-specific mortality, according to study findings presented here at the 2008 Genitourinary Cancers Symposium.

Lower PSAV Threshold Useful

SAN FRANCISCO—A PSA velocity (PSAV) threshold of 0.4 ng/mL per year can distinguish between clinically significant and insignificant prostate cancer, new data suggest.

Untreated PCa Seldom Fatal in Elderly

SAN FRANCISCO—Few elderly men with localized prostate cancer will die from the malignancy after 10 years even in treatment is delayed, so active surveillance for these patients may be a reasonable option, according to researchers.
