Urowebinar: Hormone therapy in prostate cancer  who, how and when
Presenter: Dr. Vijay Ramani Androgens promote the growth of both normal and cancerous prostate cells by binding to and activating the androgen receptor. Once activated, the androgen receptor stimulates the expression of specific genes that cause prostate cells to grow. Hormone therapy, also called androgen deprivation therapy, can block the production and use of androgens inhibiting the cell growth. Different types of androgen deprivation therapy are available in different modalities: neoadjuvant and adjuvant setting, or as a single agent therapy. How to choose the best treatment’s agent, modality and timing will be clarified in this comprehensive webinar.

How Is Hormone Therapy Used To Treat Prostate Cancer?
http://www.balancedhealthtoday.com http://www.balancedhealthtoday.com/endosterol.html Hormone therapy may be used in several ways to treat prostate cancer, including: Adjuvant hormone therapy. Hormone therapy that is given after other primary treatments to lower the risk that prostate cancer will come back is called adjuvant hormone therapy. Men with early-stage prostate cancer that has an intermediate or high risk of recurrence may receive adjuvant hormone therapy after radiation therapy or prostatectomy (surgery to remove all or part of the prostate gland) (5). Factors that are used to determine the risk of prostate cancer recurrence include the tumor's grade (as measured by the Gleason score), the extent to which the tumor has spread into surrounding tissue, and whether or not tumor cells are found in nearby lymph nodes. Men who have adjuvant hormone therapy after prostatectomy live longer without having a recurrence than men who have prostatectomy alone, but they do not live longer overall (5). Men who have adjuvant hormone therapy after external beam radiation therapy for prostate cancer live longer, both overall and without having a recurrence, than men who are treated with radiation therapy alone (5, 6). Neoadjuvant hormone therapy. Hormone therapy given before other treatments is called neoadjuvant hormone therapy. Men with early-stage prostate cancer that has an intermediate or high risk of recurrence often receive hormone therapy before or during radiation therapy, in addition to receiving hormone therapy after radiation therapy. Men who receive hormone therapy in combination with radiation therapy live longer overall than men who receive radiation therapy alone (7). The use of neoadjuvant hormone therapy (alone or in combination with chemotherapy) before prostatectomy has not been shown to prolong survival and is not a standard treatment. Hormone therapy alone. Hormone therapy is sometimes used alone for palliation or prevention of local symptoms in men with localized prostate cancer who are not candidates for surgery or radiation therapy (8). Such men include those with a limited life expectancy, those with advanced local tumor stage, and/or those with other serious health conditions. Hormone therapy used alone is also the standard treatment for men who have a prostate cancer recurrence documented by CT, MRI, or bone scan after treatment with radiation therapy or prostatectomy. Hormone therapy is often recommended for men who have a "biochemical" recurrence—a rapid rise in prostate-specific antigen (PSA) level—especially if the PSA level doubles in fewer than 12 months. However, a rapid rise in PSA level does not necessarily mean that the prostate cancer itself has recurred. The use of hormone therapy in the case of a biochemical recurrence is somewhat controversial. Finally, hormone therapy used alone is also the standard treatment for men who are found to have metastatic disease (i.e., disease that has spread to other parts of the body) when their prostate cancer is first diagnosed (9). Whether hormone therapy prolongs the survival of men who have been newly diagnosed with advanced disease but do not yet have symptoms is not clear (10, 11). Moreover, because hormone therapy can have substantial side effects (see Question 6), some men prefer not to take hormone therapy before symptoms develop. http://www.balancedhealthtoday.com/store http://www.balancedhealthtoday.com/store/endosterol.html

Hormone deprivation  for prostate cancer is dangerous. Avoid it!
Hormone deprivation for prostate cancer is dangerous. Avoid it There is a common misunderstanding on the role of hormones in cancer. Here are some simple rules. 1. Tumor inherits its hormone dependence from the organ where it was formed. Like breast tumor responds to breast hormones like estrogen. 2. Hormones are not carcinogens and do not initiate cancer. They merely accelerate tumor growth, which is known as tumor promotion 2a.Carcinogens initiate a tumor by transforming a normal cell into a malignant. Hormones do not transform cells. They merely promote the growth of transformed cells. 2b. Hormone depletion does not cure cancer. It retards tumor growth and may induce tumor dormancy. 3. As cancer progresses, tumor dependency on hormones declines 3a. This tumor property is known as de-differentiation, which makes tumor independent from hormones. Anti-hormones do not cure cancer, but they may induce tumor dormancy. Unfortunately oncology ignores these rules. Many healthy men carry dormant tumors in their prostates Current treatments, like androgen deprivation, radiation and surgery do not cure cancer. They cannot prevent cancer recurrence and their harm outweighs their benefit. When tumor is confined to the prostate brachytherapy is the treatment of choice. decades. Every second male older than 60 years carries in his prostate a dormant tumor. How did he do it and what is his secret? This capability exists in every male even if he got clinical cancer. It is our duty to harness it during therapy. .

Radiation therapy may be curative in a number of types of cancer if they are localized to one area of the body. It may also be used as part of adjuvant therapy, to prevent tumor recurrence after surgery to remove a primary malignant tumor (for example, early stages of breast cancer). Radiation therapy is synergistic with chemotherapy, and has been used before, during, and after chemotherapy in susceptible cancers. The subspecialty of oncology that focuses on radiotherapy is called radiation oncology. Radiation therapy is commonly applied to the cancerous tumor because of its ability to control cell growth. Ionizing radiation works by damaging the DNA of cancerous tissue leading to cellular death. To spare normal tissues (such as skin or organs which radiation must pass through to treat the tumor), shaped radiation beams are aimed from several angles of exposure to intersect at the tumor, providing a much larger absorbed dose there than in the surrounding, healthy tissue. Besides the tumour itself, the radiation fields may also include the draining lymph nodes if they are clinically or radiologically involved with tumor, or if there is thought to be a risk of subclinical malignant spread. It is necessary to include a margin of normal tissue around the tumor to allow for uncertainties in daily set-up and internal tumor motion. These uncertainties can be caused by internal movement (for example, respiration and bladder filling) and movement of external skin marks relative to the tumor position. Radiation oncology is the medical specialty concerned with prescribing radiation, and is distinct from radiology, the use of radiation in medical imaging and diagnosis. Radiation may be prescribed by a radiation oncologist with intent to cure ("curative") or for adjuvant therapy. It may also be used as palliative treatment (where cure is not possible and the aim is for local disease control or symptomatic relief) or as therapeutic treatment (where the therapy has survival benefit and it can be curative). It is also common to combine radiation therapy with surgery, chemotherapy, hormone therapy, immunotherapy or some mixture of the four. Most common cancer types can be treated with radiation therapy in some way. The precise treatment intent (curative, adjuvant, neoadjuvant, therapeutic, or palliative) will depend on the tumor type, location, and stage, as well as the general health of the patient. Total body irradiation (TBI) is a radiation therapy technique used to prepare the body to receive a bone marrow transplant. Brachytherapy, in which a radiation source is placed inside or next to the area requiring treatment, is another form of radiation therapy that minimizes exposure to healthy tissue during procedures to treat cancers of the breast, prostate and other organs. Radiation therapy has several applications in non-malignant conditions, such as the treatment of trigeminal neuralgia, acoustic neuromas, severe thyroid eye disease, pterygium, pigmented villonodular synovitis, and prevention of keloid scar growth, vascular restenosis, and heterotopic ossification. The use of radiation therapy in non-malignant conditions is limited partly by worries about the risk of radiation-induced cancers...

Prostate cancer update: practice-changing data?
Rob Jones, MD, from the University of Glasgow, Glasgow, UK summarizes several studies that have made an impact on the treatment landscape of prostate cancer care. Various trials, including the STAMPEDE trial (NCT00268476), have demonstrated a dramatic increase in survival outcomes when abiraterone plus prednisolone is added to standard androgen deprivation therapy. An improvement was even seen in patients with metastatic disease and high-risk locally advanced prostate cancer. Further investigation into the activity of abiraterone was carried out in the PLATO trial, which investigated whether abiraterone can elicit a response in patients that have previously been treated with enzalutamide, and become resistant to it. Although the results went against the investigated hypothesis, the trial answered some very important clinical questions. Other trials involved seeking the optimum duration of androgen deprivation therapy, producing some interesting results.

Surgery Versus Radiation in Prostate Cancer
Richard G. Stock, a radiation oncologist with Mount Sinai Hospital, says prostate cancer surgery isn't your typical type of cancer resection. Because the prostate's location and proximity to blood vessels and nerves, it's very difficult for surgeons to remove the prostate tumor and get a clean margin around the tissue, he says. "There are some limitations from a cancer standpoint," he says. "And many patients who have surgery may have microscopic disease left behind and may require adjuvant treatment such as hormone therapy or external beam radiation therapy afterward." Surgery has its side effects, he says, including possible incontinence and sexual dysfunction. Radiation is less invasive, however, it has its own side effects.

Medical therapy does not cure. It induces dormancy. Only the organism maintains tumor dormancy. In women who have had breast cancer, drug treatments are often stopped five years after removal of the primary tumour. A meta-analysis shows that these individuals are still at risk of relapse. The main aim of adjuvant therapy, which is given after cancer treatment, is to reduce the risk of local and distant metastatic disease. Yet this procedure does not cure cancer it only initiates a prolonged tumor dormancy. The risk of distant metastasis rises. One Law for all Cancers: Dysplastic fields have the same topology determined by distinct gene sets called Dysplasia gene sets Hazard rate of recurrence The probability of recurrence for a woman living at a given time.

Men with cancer live for 25% longer if given a drug early
Giving men with advanced prostate cancer a cheap chemotherapy drug soon after they are diagnosed dramatically improves survival chances, a major study has found.British researchers showed men with the cancer live 25 per cent longer if given docetaxel – an established chemotherapy drug – early on in their treatment.Up to 10,000 men with prostate cancer could benefit from the findings every year, giving them vital extra time with loved ones.At the moment prostate patients are usually only given docetaxel after standard hormone therapy has failed.But the new research, led by experts at Birmingham University, suggests giving chemotherapy at the same time as hormones is hugely beneficial.The Daily Mail launched a campaign to end needless prostate deaths almost 20 years ago, calling for earlier diagnosis and better treatments.However, last week official figures revealed that prostate cancer has now become a bigger killer than breast cancer for the first time.More than 11,800 men are now killed by the disease in Britain every year, compared with 11,400 women dying of breast cancer.Yet over the last 15 years prostate cancer has received less than half the research funding.Researchers have been trying for decades to find new and better drugs for prostate cancer.But the latest findings suggest simply giving proven treatments earlier on can make a big difference.In the past chemotherapy has been reserved for use after hormone therapy, largely to spare men the side effects of the treatment.But the researchers found giving the combination early on actually improved quality of life and reduced side effects in the long term.It cut the chance of the disease coming back by 40 per cent, slashed the risk of side effects such as broken bones or spinal compression, and saved the NHS money.The scientists, who have tracked 9,000 men with prostate cancer since 2005, also found giving men docetaxel early on boosts survival by about 10 months – an additional quarter on top of the three years men would expect to live after receiving hormone therapy alone.Study leader Professor Nick James, who will present his findings at the 2018 Genitourinary Cancers Symposium in San Francisco this weekend, said the additional life expectancy of chemotherapy makes any additional side effects worthwhile.‘How does one measure wanting to live a few more months to see a grandchild born even if the therapy results in difficult side-effects? ‘Although there is a concern about side-effects, primarily nausea and fatigue, it is clear that avoiding or delaying recurrence outweighs the upfront toxicity of chemotherapy and adds enough to overall quality of life so that using docetaxel is beneficial.’ 'I was in and out of hospital in a day'  Graham Otway is happy he is still alive to celebrate his 65th birthday next month after keyhole surgery stopped his prostate cancer in its tracks.He had suffered pain while urinating for months before a friend in the pub urged him to take a prostate-specific anti
