Baseline prostate atrophy is associated with lower tumor volume in men with prostate cancer on repeat biopsy
(Nature Publishing Group, 2017-12-04)
Background Prostate atrophy (PA) is commonly identified in prostate biopsies. Previous studies suggest PA may be associated with lower PCa risk. However, it remains unclear whether PA is associated with smaller, less ...
Geographic differences in baseline prostate inflammation and relationship with subsequent prostate cancer risk: results from the multinational REDUCE trial
(American Association for Cancer Research, 2018-04-18)
Background: Prostate cancer (PC) incidence rates vary 25-fold worldwide. Differences in PSA screening are largely, but not entirely, responsible. We examined geographic differences in prevalence of histologic prostate ...
Both acute and chronic inflammation are associated with lower perineural invasion in men with prostate cancer on repeat biopsy
Objectives: To evaluate the association between acute and chronic inflammation with the presence of perineural invasion (PNI) in prostate biopsies positive for prostate cancer (PCa). Material and methods: Retrospective ...
