Understanding What is Neuroendocrine Differentiation in Prostate Cancer

Understanding a little about the prostate gland and its biology is not only interesting, but it allows us to ask some important questions that can positively inform our treatment decisions and eventually the outcomes. On the other hand, it also can add to the confusion we all face in making the best clinical decisions. Like [...]

Understanding the Result of Neuroendocrine Differentiation in Prostate Cancer

Understanding a little about the prostate gland and its biology is not only interesting, but it allows us to ask some important questions that can be very specific to our prostate cancer treatment decisions and our eventual outcomes from these decisions. It also can simply add to the confusion we all face in making the [...]

Circulating Tumor Cell Enumeration in Metastatic Neuroendocrine Prostate Cancer and Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer

An uncommon, but very aggressive form of prostate cancer is known as Neuroendocrine prostate cancer (NEPC). It is generally accepted that Circulating Tumor Cell (CTC) counts as measured by CellSearch (a method to catch and count these cells in the blood) are prognostic for most men with metastatic prostate cancer (mPC), but are not well [...]

Neuroendocrine Prostate Cancer- What Is It?

Many of us believe that prostate cancer is one specific disease, however this is not true. In fact we now know that there are at least twenty-three different types off prostate cancer. The most common types of prostate cancer, or ninety-five percent of them are referred to as adenocarcinomas. One of the least common types [...]

A Lethal Form Of Prostate Cancer Attacked By A Targeted Drug Already In Clinical Trials

In today's issue of Cancer Discovery a group of international researchers report that an investigational drug had a dramatic response in animal models of neuroendocrine prostate cancer, a lethal form of the disease. The researchers pointed out that fewer than 2% of prostate tumors in men are initially diagnosed as neuroendocrine, but many of the [...]

Neuroendocrine Prostate Cancer – A Tough Disease To Treat

We are finding that there are many different types of prostate cancer, all of them are actually different diseases. At Memorial Sloane Kettering Hospital, New York City, they recently announced that, based on genetic analysis, they have identified 23 different types of prostate cancer. One of these cancer types is neuroendocrine prostate cancer which is [...]
