BACKGROUND The comparative outcome with GreenLight (GL) photoselective vaporisation of the prostate and transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) in men with lower urinary tract symptoms due to benign prostatic obstruction (BPO) has been questioned. OBJECTIVE The primary objective of the GOLIATH study was to evaluate the noninferiority of 180-W GL(More)
PURPOSE We present the 1-year results of the GOLIATH prospective randomized controlled trial comparing transurethral resection of the prostate to GreenLight XPS for the treatment of men with nonneurogenic lower urinary tract symptoms due to prostate enlargement. The updated results at 1 year show that transurethral resection of the prostate and GreenLight(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Open nephroureterectomy (ONU) rather than laparoscopic nephroureterectomy (LNU) is still regarded as the standard of care for extirpative surgical management of upper urinary tract urothelial-cell carcinoma (UUT-UCC). The longest published follow-up of LNU is 7 years. We report outcomes for patients having surgery ≥10 years ago. (More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM During prostate development, mesenchymal-epithelial interactions regulate organ growth and differentiation. In adult prostate, stromal-epithelial interactions are important for tissue homeostasis and also play a significant role in prostate cancer. In this study we have identified molecules that show a mesenchymal expression pattern in(More)
Prostate cancer cells exist under hypoxic conditions. Hypoxia has a detrimental effect on the efficacy of treatment and final outcome in patients with prostate cancer. There have been a large number of endogenous markers of hypoxia described previously across a range of cancer types, both in vitro and in vivo. The aim of this study was to evaluate the(More)
Prostate cancer cells can exist in a hypoxic microenvironment, causing radioresistance. Nitric oxide (NO) is a radiosensitiser of mammalian cells. NO-NSAIDs are a potential means of delivering NO to prostate cancer cells. This study aimed to determine the effect and mechanism of action of NO-sulindac and radiation, on prostate cancer cells and stroma, under(More)
BACKGROUND The GOLIATH study is a 2-yr trial comparing transurethral resection of prostate (TURP) to photoselective vaporization with the GreenLight XPS Laser System (GL-XPS) for the treatment of benign prostatic obstruction (BPO). Noninferiority of GL-XPS to TURP was demonstrated based on a 6-mo follow-up from the study. OBJECTIVE To determine whether(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Laparoscopic nephrectomy (LN) has largely replaced open nephrectomy. The aim of this study was to describe a validated modular system for training urologists in LN in the context of the shorter training times available in the current era. METHODS After attendance at dry and wet laboratory courses, three mentees (trainee, new(More)
The stromal microenvironment has key roles in prostate development and cancer, and cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAFs) stimulate tumourigenesis via several mechanisms including the expression of pro-tumourigenic factors. Mesenchyme (embryonic stroma) controls prostate organogenesis, and in some circumstances can re-differentiate prostate tumours. We have(More)
Extracellular proteases of the matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) and serine protease families participate in many aspects of tumour growth and metastasis. Using quantitative real-time RT-PCR analysis, we have undertaken a comprehensive survey of the expression of these enzymes and of their natural inhibitors in 44 cases of human prostate cancer and 23 benign(More)
