Endogenous sex steroids, along with environmental factors (notably diet) and host immune and inflammatory responses, are likely to cooperate in the pathogenesis of the disease. Based on the assumption that a complex endocrine-inflammatory-immune interaction is primarily implicated in human PCa, we have investigated the interplay between… CONTINUE READING
