First Clinical Trial of New Targeted Molecular Therapy in U.S. Takes Aim at Incurable Prostate Cancer
NewYork-Presbyterian and Weill Cornell Medicine clinicians in progress on Phase 1 clinical trial of PSMA-Targeted Therapeutic Agent for the Treatment for Metastatic Prostate Cancer
NewYork-Presbyterian and Weill Cornell Medicine have begun the first clinical trial in the U.S. that uses a small molecule, 177Lu-PSMA-617, to treat men with progressive prostate cancer that has spread beyond the prostate, or is metastatic, and is no longer responding to hormonal therapy.
Combining kidney ultrasound with a visual examination of the bladder and urethra appears to be the most cost-effective way to screen for cancers of the genitourinary tract in people with microscopic amounts of blood in their urine, according to a study from Weill Cornell Medicine and NewYork-Presbyterian researchers.
The incidence of metastatic prostate cancer in older men is rising after reaching an all-time low in 2011, according to new research from Weill Cornell Medicine and NewYork-Presbyterian investigators. The findings suggest a correlation between the increase and a change in prostate cancer screening guidelines recommending against routine prostate-specific antigen (PSA) testing.
Significant decrease seen in prostate biopsy, radical prostatectomy procedures following recommendations
In a study published online by JAMA Surgery, Jim C. Hu, M.D., M.P.H., Joshua A. Halpern, M.D., M.S., of Weill Cornell Medicine, New York, and colleagues examined effects on practice patterns in prostate cancer diagnosis and treatment following the U.S. Preventative Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommendation against prostate-specific antigen (PSA) screening in 2012.
