Prostate Biopsy

Compared with non-drinkers, men who consumed at least seven drinks per week during adolescence (ages 15-19) had three times the odds of being diagnosed with clinically significant prostate cancer.

Background: "The prostate is an organ that grows rapidly during puberty, so it's potentially more susceptible to carcinogenic exposure during the adolescent years," said Allott. "For this reason, we wanted to investigate if heavy alcohol consumption in early life was associated with the aggressiveness of prostate cancer later."

Multiple SelectMDx Clinical Study Abstracts presented at 2018 Global Prostate Congress in Frankfurt, Germany

MDxHealth SA, today announced the publication of positive data demonstrating the value of the SelectMDx liquid biopsy test for Prostate Cancer in guiding patient management for men being considered for multiparametric MRI and the clinical utility in guiding biopsy decisions in real-world clinical practice. Data will be presented at the sixth Global Congress on Prostate Cancer (PROSCA) in Frankfurt, Germany, June 28-30, 2018.

Researchers of the Universitat Politècnica de València and the Universidad de Granada, together with doctors from the Hospital Clínic Universitari de València are working on the development of a new system to help diagnose prostate cancer. The work being developed is part of the SICAP project.

Heretofore, researchers have already developed an online application that helps pathologists evaluate samples obtained in biopsies, as well as an initial version of the system that is capable of establishing whether the samples are carcinogenic or not.
