PURPOSE Activation of the insulin-like growth factor 1 receptor (IGF-IR) is implicated in prostate cancer development and progression. This study evaluated biologic and clinical effects of figitumumab, a fully human monoclonal IGF-IR antibody, in patients with localized prostate cancer. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Eligible patients received figitumumab 20 mg/kg(More)
In most patients with prostate cancer, continuous androgen suppression (CAS) therapy causes tumour regression and an accompanying decrease in serum prostate specific antigen (PSA). However, with tumour progression, regulation of both tumour growth and PSA gene expression becomes androgen-independent. Because androgen resistance develops, in part, from(More)
PURPOSE/OBJECTIVES To determine if providing individualized information to men who are newly diagnosed with prostate cancer and their partners would lower their levels of psychological distress and enable them to become more active participants in treatment decision making. DESIGN Quasiexperimental, one group, pretest/post-test. SETTING The Prostate(More)
The expression of the nucleolar organizer regions (NORs) was quantified in paraffin sections of tumors and lymph node metastasis, by means of digital image analysis, in 75 patients with resected non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Patients were divided in two groups: early stage (stages I and II) and advanced stage (stages IIIa, IIIb and IV). The prognostic(More)
The expression of 5alpha-reductase type 1 and type 2 isoenzymes in hyperplastic human prostate tissue and several human prostate cell lines was investigated by Northern blot analyses, reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR), and enzyme activity. Separation of stroma and epithelium was confirmed histologically and only preparations with no(More)
The proportion of tumorigenic stem cells and the expression of the apoptosis-related gene, TRPM-2 (clusterin), were studied in populations of Shionogi carcinoma cells subjected to multiple cycles of androgen withdrawal and replacement (intermittent androgen suppression). The parent androgen-dependent cell line was initially transplanted into a male mouse(More)
Ciliary ultrastructure was studied and quantitatively estimated in a 27-year-old sterile woman suffering from complete KS. Ciliated epithelium was obtained from both nasal mucosa and a fallopian tube. Cilia from both locations were devoid of DA. Various MT abnormalities were found in 16 percent of respiratory epithelial and 21 percent of fallopian tube(More)
Androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) has been an essential treatment option for treating prostate cancer (PCa). The role for hormonal treatment initially was restricted to men with metastatic and inoperable, locally advanced disease. Now it has been extended to neoadjuvant or adjuvant therapy for surgery and radiotherapy, for biochemical relapse after surgery(More)
The controversies surrounding testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) have been addressed in the past few years. Although the androgenic effects of TRT on normal and malignant prostate cells have been studied for over 70 years, little clinical prospective research exists on the physiological responses of prostate tissues to a wide range of serum testosterone(More)
Energy expenditure have been often estimated using computational models based on heart rate (HR) and appropriate personalization strategies to account for users cardio-respiratory characteristics. However, medications like beta blockers which are prescribed to treat several cardiac conditions have a direct influence on the cardiovascular system and may(More)
