Search for biomarkers aimed at improving treatment of painful bladder condition
Taking advantage of technology that can analyze tissue samples and measure the activity of thousands of genes at once, scientists at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center are on a mission to better understand and treat interstitial cystitis (IC), a painful and difficult-to-diagnose bladder condition.  View News Article (2014-08-12)


New accurate epigenetic test could eliminate unnecessary repeat biopsies for prostate cancer
More than one million prostate biopsies are performed each year in the U.S. alone, including many repeat biopsies for fear of cancer missed. View News Article (2014-07-22)


Study: Robot-assisted surgery for prostate cancer controls the disease for 10 years
Robot-assisted surgery to remove cancerous prostate glands is effective in controlling the disease for 10 years, according to a new study led by researchers at Henry Ford Hospital.  View News Article (2014-07-17)


Prostate cancer in young men - more frequent and more aggressive?
The number of younger men diagnosed with prostate cancer has increased nearly 6-fold in the last 20 years, and the disease is more likely to be aggressive in these younger men, according to a new analysis from researchers at the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center. View News Article (2014-07-16)


Depressed men with prostate cancer are diagnosed later stage, get less effective therapies
Depressed men with localized prostate cancer were more likely to be diagnosed with more aggressive prostate cancer, received less effective treatments and survived for shorter times than prostate cancer patients who were not depressed, a UCLA study has found. View News Article (2014-07-10)


Anonymous peer feedback through social networking helped residents improve their skills
Surgical residents who received anonymous feedback from their peers through a social networking site on their robotic surgery skills improved more than those who did not receive any peer feedback on their procedures, UCLA researchers found. View News Article (2014-06-18)


Surgery prices are elusive

Radiation for prostate cancer linked to secondary cancers, study finds
Among men treated for prostate cancer, those who received radiation therapy were more likely to develop bladder or rectal cancer, according to a new study from the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center. View News Article (2014-05-30)


Study affirms value of epigenetic test for markers of prostate cancer
A multicenter team of researchers report that a commercial test designed to rule out the presence of genetic biomarkers of prostate cancer may be accurate enough to exclude the need for repeat prostate biopsies in many - if not most - men. View News Article (2014-05-29)


Study shows image fusion-guided biopsy improves accuracy of prostate cancer diagnosis
A recent study by investigators from LIJ Medical Center demonstrated that using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in men with an elevated prostate specific antigen (PSA) resulted in a prostate cancer detection rate that was twice as high as data reported in the March 1999 Prostate journal that analyzed men undergoing the standard 12-core biopsy with an elevated PSA. View News Article (2014-05-22)
