Hormone therapy is also called androgen suppression therapy. Androgens stimulate prostate cancer cells to grow

Hormone therapy is also called androgen suppression therapy. The goal is to reduce levels of male hormones, called androgens, in the body, to stop them from fueling prostate cancer cells. Androgens stimulate prostate cancer cells to grow. The main androgens in the body are testosterone and dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Most androgen is made by the testicles, but the adrenal glands (glands that sit above your kidneys) as well as the prostate cancer itself, can also make a fair amount

in prostate cancer cells through nonsteroidal activation of the androgen receptor. in advanced untreated disease and hormone refractory groups (P < . 5). Serum PSMA was elevated in advanced untreated prostate cancer.

It is found in high levels in human ejaculate, and has recently been found to regulate prostate-specific protein expression in prostate cancer cells through nonsteroidal activation of the androgen receptor. IL-6 may be a candidate mediator of morbidity in patients with metastatic disease. Compared to serum levels of controls and BPH, PSA was significantly elevated in advanced untreated disease and hormone refractory groups (P < . Percent fPSA was significantly lower in all cancer patients but the hormone refractory.

The orally administered drug is being studied in a subset of patients with advanced prostate cancer.

1) Atrasentan (Xinlay(R)) is an anti-cancer drug from a new class of agents called selective endothelin-A receptor antagonists. The orally administered drug is being studied in a subset of patients with advanced prostate cancer. 2) Phase II and III studies evaluating time to clinical and radiographic progression failed to demonstrate a significant benefit with atrasentan versus placebo.

Hormone-refractory prostate cancer is an advanced stage of the . Our results indicate that endothelin receptor A expression may serve as a marker for and have an important role in prostate cancer progression.

Hormone-refractory prostate cancer is an advanced stage of the metastatic disease; it has a poor prognosis and a short median survival, about 9 to 18 months. Prostate cancer is the second most common cause of death from cancer in . men, and advanced, hormone-refractory disease is characterized by painful osteoblastic bone metastases.
