Prostate Cancer

A new molecular imaging agent has been demonstrated to find prostate cancer that has spread to other tissues by locking in on the prostate specific membrane antigen (PSMA) enzyme, according to a new study. Results were presented at the 2015 Annual...

Results from a randomized controlled trial comparing permanent radioactive implants (brachytherapy) with dose-escalated external beam radiotherapy in patients with prostate cancer showed brachytherapy patients were twice as likely to be cancer-fre...

Augmenix Inc. announced U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance of the SpaceOAR System, cleared as a spacer to protect the rectum in men undergoing prostate cancer (PCa) radiotherapy. Despite many advancements in PCa radiotherapy, t...

Two new studies from the University of Virginia School of Medicine have cast doubt on the wisdom of delaying radiation treatment for prostate cancer as long as possible after the removal of the prostate. The pervading belief is that doing so helps...
