Background: Prostate cancer (PCa) is the most commonly occurring neoplasm in males in many countries and the fourth most commonly occurring cancer overall. Various studies indicate some discrepancies regarding zinc (Zn) levels in prostatic fluid of normal and cancerous glands. Materials and Methods: The present systematic analysis included 25 studies on Zn levels in expressed prostatic fluid (EPF), all of which were published in the years from 1961 to 2018 and selected by searching the…

[Zinc levels in prostatic fluid of patients with prostate pathologies].

TLDR
The low zinc concentrations obtained in patients with prostatitis and prostate cancer, in contrast to the control group, led us to consider the possibility of recommending zinc supplements as a coadjuvant therapy in Patients with prost atitis and to use zinc measurements as another diagnostic tool, for cases in which it is necessary to differentiate benign prostatic hyperplasia from prostate cancer.

The effect of chronic prostatitis on zinc concentration of prostatic fluid and seminal plasma: a systematic review and meta-analysis

TLDR
There was a significant negative effect of chronic prostatitis on zinc concentrations of prostatic fluid and seminal plasma, and further studies with larger sample sizes are needed to better illuminate the negative impact.

Zinc in the human prostate gland: Normal, hyperplastic and cancerous

TLDR
It was shown that zinc assessment in the material of transrectal puncture biopsy of prostate indurated site can be used as an additional test for differential diagnosis of BPH and cancer.

Trace Elements of Expressed Prostatic Secretions as a Source for Biomarkers of Prostate Cancer

TLDR
The decrease in levels of Zn and Rb in the fluid of cancerous prostate might demonstrate involvement of these trace elements in etiology and pathogenesis of malignant prostate tumors.

Significance of trace element quantities in the prostatic secretion of patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia and prostate cancer

TLDR
The great decrease in levels of Rb and Zn in the fluid of cancerous prostate might demonstrate an involvement of these trace elements in etiology and pathogenesis of malignant prostate tumors.

Zinc concentration in human prostatic fluid: Normal, chronic prostatitis, adenoma and cancer

Radionuclide induced energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence was used to estimate zinc content in prostatic fluid in normal, chronic prostatitis, adenoma and cancer cases. Groups of patients suffering

The Distribution of 54 Trace Elements Including Zinc in Pediatric and Nonhyperplastic Young Adult Prostate Gland Tissues

The distribution of Zn and other trace elements in prostate tissues provide information that can be key to better understanding of physiological and biochemical functions of prostate gland. For this

Differences and relationships between morphometric parameters and zinc content in nonhyperplastic and hyperplastic prostate glands.

TLDR
For the first time it was quantitatively shown that BPH begins from the excessive proliferation of the glandular epithelium and that the Zn redistribution in the histological structures of prostate tissue is a pathogenetic factor of the disease.

Ratios of selected chemical element contents in prostatic tissue as markers of malignancy

TLDR
It was shown that the Ca/Ba, Ca/Mn, Mg/Al, M g/B, Zn/ al,Zn/Ba Mass fraction ratios are the most informative for a differential diagnosis among all investigated mass fraction ratios.

Trace Element Levels in Prostate Gland as Carcinoma’s Markers

TLDR
The Ag, Al, B, Br, Li, Mn, Ni, and Zn mass fraction in a needle-biopsy core can be used as the informative indicators for distinguishing malignant from benign prostate.
