    Men who get the COVID-19 vaccinations are being warned by a urologist in Palm Beach County, Florida, that they may cause a spike in the results on one medical test.It's Dr. Diego Rubinowicz who said, in a report by CBS12, that it is the PSA levels for men who are being tested, often routinely, for prostate cancer, that are affected.The report explained prostate cancer is a common cancer for men, with a quarter of a million cases or thereabouts diagnosed in 2021.But the doctor said he's been seeing elevated PSA test levels in men who got vaccinations, not necessarily related...
  • High-fat diet fuels prostate cancer progression by rewiring the metabolome and amplifying the MYC program

    Abstract Systemic metabolic alterations associated with increased consumption of saturated fat and obesity are linked with increased risk of prostate cancer progression and mortality, but the molecular underpinnings of this association are poorly understood. Here, we demonstrate in a murine prostate cancer model, that high-fat diet (HFD) enhances the MYC transcriptional program through metabolic alterations that favour histone H4K20 hypomethylation at the promoter regions of MYC regulated genes, leading to increased cellular proliferation and tumour burden. Saturated fat intake (SFI) is also associated with an enhanced MYC transcriptional signature in prostate cancer patients. The SFI-induced MYC signature independently predicts prostate...
  • Dogs Can Sniff Out Lethal Prostate Cancer With High Accuracy, Suggests First Blind Study

    If you own a dog, you already know they are masters of sniffing rears. Despite wielding powerful noses that can detect diabetes and even COVID-19, they often prioritize diving into the nearest posterior to make friends as opposed to putting them to good use, but you can’t stop them doing what they love. Steering them in the right direction, researchers from Medical Detection Dogs have concluded a trial for scent dogs detecting the presence of prostate cancer and found they are highly sensitive to the most aggressive forms of the disease. The study, which is published in the journal PLOS...

    John Tesh vividly remembers the day he contemplated ending his own life. It was 2015, and the Emmy Award-winning journalist and popular radio host had been diagnosed with a rare form of prostate cancer and given just 18 months to live. “It was an incredibly painful experience,” Tesh, 63, recalled in an interview with The Christian Post. “I had complications from my first surgery where the opioids they gave me paralyzed my bowels and so my body was shutting down. One day, I looked at my wife with tears in my eyes and said, ‘You have to kill me.’” “They...

    Scientists are reporting promising results from a year-long study where soundwaves were used to heat and destroy prostate cancers decade3d/Depositphotos View 2 Images Treating prostate cancer through traditional means such as surgery or radiotherapy carries certain risks, with some patients experiencing impotence, urinary problems and bowel trouble, among other unwanted side effects. Safer and less invasive treatment options could soon be on the table, however, including a novel MRI-guided ultrasound technique that eliminated significant cancers in 80 percent of subjects in a year-long study. The new technique is called MRI-guided transurethral ultrasound ablation (TULSA) and has been under development for...

    A combination of enzalutamide and androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) significantly reduced the risk of metastatic progression or death over time in men with advanced prostate cancer, according to the results of clinical trial led by Duke Cancer Institute. The study enrolled 1,150 men with metastatic prostate cancer who had just begun treatment with androgen deprivation therapy or recently completed treatment with docetaxel and ADT; half of the men were randomly assigned to receive the combination therapy; half received ADT and a placebo. Most of the men, 62 percent, had high volume disease, defined as having more than four metastatic sites...
  • Nolte: Bill Kristol Taunts Rudy Giuliani for Getting Cancer

    Never Trumper Bill Kristol mocked Rudy Giuliani on Sunday for dropping out of a 2000 Senate race against Hillary Clinton after being diagnosed with prostate cancer. Kristol tweeted this on Sunday night, so he has had plenty of time to realize his mistake, if he indeed made a mistake in not knowing about Giuliani’s 2000 cancer diagnosis. We all make mistakes, but by now Kristol knows this and has still not amended his tweet, so there is just no question Kristol deliberately mocked Giuliani for having cancer.

    Michael English, 72, was one of 258 men who took part in the trial. He was first diagnosed in 2005, but radiotherapy, chemotherapy and hormone-based therapies did not kill his cancer. Two years ago, he was given the immunotherapy drug pembrolizumab. He said: "We were astonished when scans showed that the tumour had become undetectable. "Today I'm effectively cancer-free." He says he's now planning out the next 20 years of his life, not the next two. Researcher Prof Johann de Bono told the BBC: "This is the first evidence that a subset of prostate cancer patients do spectacularly well on...

    Gov. Tom Wolf of Pennsylvania has a treatable form of prostate cancer that was "thankfully detected early," he announced on Wednesday. He will continue to serve as governor while undergoing treatment that will last several months. The diagnosis comes as Mr. Wolf, a Democrat elected in 2014, is locked in a tight battle with the Republican-led General Assembly over the state budget. He will begin treatment in the coming weeks, he said, without providing details, but will first take some time off to spend with his family. Mr. Wolf, who said doctors detected the cancer when "a regular checkup revealed...

    Several drugs are scoring big wins against common cancers, setting new standards for how to treat many prostate, breast and lung tumors. There's even a "uni-drug" that may fight many forms of the disease. What's especially striking: The drugs are beneficial in some cases for more than a year, much longer than the few months many new drugs provide.   Here are some highlights from the world's largest cancer meeting, the American Society of Clinical Oncology conference in Chicago:

    California Gov. Jerry Brown will undergo further radiation treatment for prostate cancer first treated in 2012, his office announced Saturday. Brown’s oncologist, Dr. Eric Small of the University of California, San Francisco, said the cancer is not extensive and can be treated with “a short course of radiotherapy.” […] The three-term governor was first treated for early stage prostate cancer in January 2012 and stayed on the job throughout his nearly four-week treatment. In April 2011, he underwent minor surgery to remove a cancerous growth on his nose. He was put under local anesthetic and doctors removed basal cell carcinoma,...
  • Man 'cured' of prostate cancer after doctors shock tumour to death with testosterone

    A man with advanced prostate cancer is believed to be cured after doctors 'shocked' his tumour to death with huge amounts of testosterone. The result has been described as 'unexpected' and 'exciting' because most prostate cancer therapies work by depriving tumours of testosterone, because cancer uses it as a fuel.

    Last week, presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders joined 11 other members of Congress in sending a letter to the National Institute of Health (NIH), urging the agency to cut costs for the prostate cancer drug, Xtandi, by employing its “march-in rights.” These rights, which have never before been utilized by the NIH, were established in 1980 under the Bayh-Dole Act, which gives federal agencies the authority to license a patent when action is deemed necessary, primarily as an emergency tactic. Using this provision as their justification, lawmakers are requesting that NIH override Xtandi’s patent protection, which guarantees its manufacturers exclusive...

    When I inquired about Ben Carsons speeches and appearances for Mannatech late last year, I was told I would not be speaking to Dr. Carson; I was only permitted to speak to his business manager, Armstrong Williams. From our conversation, it was clear Williams had no idea about any of Mannatechs controversies, or then-Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott suing the company for what the state called 'a particularly egregious case of false advertising.' (The company settled with the state out of court, agreeing to pay $4 million in restitution.) Both Williams and Carson insist there was 'no compensated relationship' because...

    During the Republican presidential debate on CNBC, Dr. Ben Carson was asked about his involvement with Mannatech, a medical supplement company. He was specifically asked about how endorsing their product would reflect on his judgement, since they had been subject to a government probe for wrongdoing. Carson denied he was connected to the company in any way other than as a fan of their products. That was a lie. Carson promoted the company in speeches, and in a video presentation: In the video, Carson hailed the company: 'The wonderful thing about a company like Mannatech is that they recognize that...
