The ATBC ( Alpha-Tocopherol, Beta-Carotene Cancer Prevention ) study investigated risk factors and prevention of major chronic diseases, such as cancer, cardiovascular disease and diabetes. The study ...


Telomerase reverse transcriptase ( hTERT ) represents an attractive target for cancer immunotherapy because hTERT is reactivated in most human tumors. A Phase 1-2 clinical trial evaluated telomeras ...


Selective cyclooxygenase-2 ( COX-2 ) inhibitors may suppress carcinogenesis by both COX-2-dependent and COX-2-independent mechanisms. Researchers at the Weill Medical College of Cornell University, ...


Lipid rafts are cholesterol- and sphingolipid-enriched microdomains in cell membranes that regulate phosphorylation cascades originating from membrane-bound proteins. They are dynamic and continually ...


Finasteride ( Proscar ) blocks an enzyme called 5-alpha-reductase, which is necessary to change testosterone to another hormone that causes the prostate to grow. It is used to treat urinary problems ...


Use of statins may reduce the risk of advanced prostate cancer, according to research that followed 34,428 U.S. men for more than a decade. The study found that men who used these medications had h ...

Researchers from three Cancer Centers measured sunlight exposure in men and found that increased exposure to sunlight may decrease the risk of prostate cancer. "We believe that sunlight helps to re ...


Among African-Americans with prostate cancer, a tumor-suppressing gene called GSTP1 is inactivated at a rate 3.5 times higher than among Caucasians, according to a study conducted at the San Francisco ...


Researchers from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis found that a neurotransmitter, named GABA ( gamma amino butyric acid ), shows up in unusually high amounts in some aggressive tum ...


A study indicates there is no cutpoint of PSA with simultaneous high sensitivity and high specificity for monitoring healthy men for prostate cancer, but rather a continuum of prostate cancer risk at ...
