  • The Use of Statin to Lower Risk of Prostate Cancer

    Cancer studies have proved that there is a relationship between statin use and lowered risk of having prostate cancer. This is according to relatively new studies. Strains were used over a long period in large doses for more aggressive tumors. Statins are competitive inhibitors used as drugs to minimize cholesterol levels in patients to prevent the risk of having a...

  • Gene-Based Therapy for Advanced Prostate Cancer

    This therapy identifies terrible genes in our bodies and seeks to repair them. This may show a marked increase in the life expectancy of men with advanced prostate cancer. The study was particularly interested in a particular gene mutation that occurred in the patients sampled for the study. These mutations were then identified and treated with new drug therapy.

These findings can help to test and identify tumors that are likely to be aggressive and lead to developing a combination therapy for the disease. The two genes known as FOXM1 and CENPF have been implicated in cancer before, but none of...

  • Androgen Deprivation Therapy Produces a Synergistic Effects During Radiation

    Androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) enhances radiation therapy by regulating DNA repair. Since the prostate cancer cells thrive on dihydrotestosterone and testosterone, which are androgens. The prostate gland and PCa cells depend on androgens for their growth. The androgens are mediums through which the activity of the healthy and cancerous cells is monitored. They help to activate androgen receptors which in...
