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)


Low risk prostate cancer not always low risk
More and more men who believe they have low-risk prostate cancers are opting for active surveillance, forgoing treatment and monitoring the cancer closely with prostate-specific antigen (PSA) tests, digital rectal exams and ultrasounds at regular intervals to see if their tumors are growing. View News Article (2014-05-19)


Male infertility linked to mortality in study led by Stanford researcher
Men who are infertile because of defects in their semen appear to be at increased risk of dying sooner than men with normal semen, according to a study led by a researcher at the Stanford University School of Medicine. View News Article (2014-05-16)


Older, sicker men with early-stage prostate cancer do not benefit from aggressive treatment
Treating older men with early-stage prostate cancer who also have other serious underlying health problems with aggressive therapies such as surgery or radiation therapy does not help them live longer and, in fact, can be detrimental, according to a study by UCLA researchers. View News Article (2014-05-13)


Vitamin D deficiency may be linked to aggressive prostate cancer
Vitamin D deficiency was an indicator of aggressive prostate cancer and spread of the disease in European-American and African-American men who underwent their first prostate biopsy because of abnormal prostate-specific antigen (PSA) and/or digital rectal examination (DRE) test results. View News Article (2014-05-01)


Henry Ford Hospital cited: World's first surgical innovators for patient safety standards
An innovative kidney transplant technique developed by Henry Ford Hospital is credited as the first in the world to use a new set of patient safety standards coordinated by the University of Oxford in England.  View News Article (2014-04-08)


New Lens Design Drastically Improves Kidney Stone Treatment
Duke engineers have devised a way to improve the efficiency of lithotripsy-the demolition of kidney stones using focused shock waves. After decades of research, all it took was cutting a groove near the perimeter of the shock wave-focusing lens and changing its curvature. View News Article (2014-03-19)


Prostate specific antigen screening declines after 2012 USPSTF recommendations
Researchers at Case Western Reserve University and University Hospitals Case Medical Center have assessed the impact of the 2012 U.S. View News Article (2014-03-14)


Researchers identify target for shutting down growth of prostate cancer cells
Scientists at UT Southwestern Medical Center have identified an important step toward potentially shutting down the growth of prostate cancer cells. View News Article (2014-03-06)
