Neuroendocrine differentiation in the progression of prostate cancer
TLDR
In metastatic PCa, pretreatment serum CGA levels can be a predictor for progression and survival after endocrine therapy, and it is recommended to measure longitudinal change in serum C GA. Expand
Changes in male reproductive function after high altitude mountaineering.
TLDR
The male reproductive functions of the members of the Masherbrum Expedition in 1999 were examined via semen analyses and endocrine tests and it is suggested that a high altitude sojourn may induce reversible spermatogenic and Leydig cell dysfunction. Expand
Involvement of heat-shock protein 90 in the interleukin-6-mediated signaling pathway through STAT3.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that IL-6-induced gene expression was suppressed by a specific heat-shock protein 90 (Hsp90) inhibitor, geldanamycin (GA) in human hepatoma Hep3B cells, which represents a novel role of Hsp90 in the IL- 6 signaling pathways. Expand
Relationship between Zinc Concentrations in Seminal Plasma and Various Sperm Parameters
TLDR
It is concluded that excessively high zinc concentration is apparently related to defective motility in asthenozoospermic patients, even though adequate seminal plasma content of the element is required for normal sperm function. Expand
Expression of membrane-type 1 matrix metalloproteinase (MT1-MMP) on prostate cancer cell lines.
TLDR
Results suggest that MT1-MMP is indeed the tumor-specific activator of proMMP-2 in androgen-independent prostate cancer cells and plays an important role in the invasive properties of prostate cancer Cells. Expand
A Case of decapitated spermatozoa in an infertile man
TLDR
Both hypoosmotic swelling and zona‐free hamster egg tests showed that most headless spermatozoa appeared to be normal in their function as tails, and the decapitation seemed to take place between the region of the basal plate and the proximal centriole. Expand
Metastatic prostate cancer with normal level of serum prostate-specific antigen
TLDR
The clinical and pathological features of metastatic prostate cancer with normal level of serum prostate-specific antigen (PSA) were investigated and elevated serummarkers such as carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA),CA19-9, CA15-3, CA125, neuron-specific enolase and pro-gastrin releasing peptide may aid in the follow up of disease. Expand
Internal spermatic vein prostaglandins in varicocele patients.
TLDR
The possibility that PGE and PGF, refluxed from the renal vein to the testes via the internal spermatic vein in varicocele patients, disturbs spermatogenesis is discussed. Expand
Chemokine receptor CXCR4 expression and prognosis in patients with metastatic prostate cancer
TLDR
CXCR4 expression is a useful prognostic factor for patients with metastatic prostate cancer treated with androgen‐withdrawal therapy, and its expression showed no association with pathological grade, extent of bony metastasis, or clinical response to hormonal therapy. Expand
Protein inhibitor of activated STAT3 regulates androgen receptor signaling in prostate carcinoma cells.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that PIAS3 is expressed in prostate cancer cells and its expression is induced in response to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) treatment, and evidence is provided that these activities were due to direct physical interactions between PIas3 and AR. Expand
