Cysteine- rich secretory protein 3 (CRISP3) prognostic significance in prostate cancer (PCA) has generated mixed result. Herein, we investigated and independently validated CRISP3 expression in relation to ERG and PTEN genomic aberrations and clinical outcome. CRISP3 protein expression was examined by immunohistochemistry using a cohort of patients with(More)
BACKGROUND ERG (ETS regulated gene) protein expression has been shown to reflect ERG genomic rearrangements in prostate cancer (PCA). However, ERG protein expression prognostic value has not been yet investigated. DESIGN ERG protein expression was investigated in a cohort of 312 men with PCA diagnosed in transurethral resection of the prostate. RESULTS(More)
After devastating flooding in southern Alberta in June 2013, we attempted to replicate a New Zealand randomised trial that showed that micronutrient (minerals, vitamins) consumption after the earthquakes of 2010-11 resulted in improved mental health. Residents of southern Alberta were invited to participate in a study on the potential benefit of nutrient(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare ERG expression and gene rearrangements rates in metastatic and castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) to localized disease as ERG is the most common genetic event in early prostate cancer (PCa) with potential prognostic and therapeutic implications. METHODS We evaluated ERG protein expression in 344 patients with PCa in 3 cohorts(More)
Background. The prognostic significance of ERG expression in prostate cancer (PCA) has generated mixed results. We sought to investigate the prognostic significance of ERG expression in a localized cohort of men with PCA. Material and Methods. We investigated ERG protein expression in a cohort of 198 men with localized PCA. ERG expression was correlated(More)
ERG and androgen receptor (AR) are known to function cooperatively in prostate cancer (PCa) progression. However, the prognostic value of combined ERG and AR expression and potential pathways are not well characterized. We assessed ERG and AR protein expression by immunohistochemistry in a cohort of 312 men with PCa diagnosed by transurethral resection of(More)
OBJECTIVES ERG-gene rearrangement defines a distinct molecular subtype of PCA with potential biological and clinical implications. To identify a molecular signature reflective of the downstream effects of ERG-mediated transcriptional regulation with prognostic implication in patients with prostate cancer (PCA). MATERIAL AND METHODS We used a singular(More)
PURPOSE ERG expression has been proposed to signify molecular subtype of PCA. However, its significance in early onset prostate cancer (PCA) is not characterized. MATERIALS AND METHODS ERG protein expression was investigated in a cohort of 121 men diagnosed with localized PCA at <50 years of age with a mean follow-up time of 65.7 months. ERG was(More)
Dynamin 2 (Dyn2) is essential for intracellular vesicle formation and trafficking, cytokinesis, and receptor endocytosis. In this study, we investigated the implication of Dyn2 as a prognostic marker and therapeutic target for progressive prostate cancer (PCA). We evaluated Dyn2 protein expression by immunohistochemistry in two cohorts: men with localized(More)
