Patients with low risk prostate cancer under active surveillance may benefit from vitamin D3 supplementation at 4000 IU per day according to an article in the Journal of Endocrinology Metabolism. In patients with Gleason 6 prostate cancers, those treated with 4000 IU of vitamin D3 for one year, 55% had a decrease in Gleason findings or fewer positive biopsies, 11% were without change, and 34% were somewhat worse. The PSA scores did not change in these patients. Levels of vitamin D less than 20 ng/ml showed a strong correlation with increased risk for death. We know that vitamin D increases differentiation of cancer cells. Besides treating Gleason 6 prostate cancers with vitamin D, there are other approaches that could be of value, such as an alkaline diet, use of modified citrus pectin, flax seed oil, lifestyle strategies, mushrooms, antioxidants, vitamin C and K. There are many articles supporting this approach such as one done by Dean Ornish, MD. Take Dr. Saputo's Cancer Health Assessment Once you have cancer you want to know what you can do to get rid of it and keep it gone! In this Health Assessment we will ask you questions about what treatment(s) you have undergone, which complementary and alternative treatments might be of interest to you, what lifestyle factors could help slow down or prevent a recurrence, and what you might want to consider if your cancer is causing pain or if your situation is terminal. http://doctorsaputo.com/a/cancer-health-assessment

Research published in the BMJ concluded that the antigen(Prostate Specific Antigen) had antiangiogenic and antimetastatic properties and suggested that raised levels of PSA in prostate cancer may show that the body is fighting the disease rather than acting as a bad prognostic sign. This calls into question current medical treatments focussed on lowering PSA levels. The researchers went as far as to say that the “administration of prostate specific antigen as a 'drug' to augment endogenous concentrations could provide a rational approach to the treatment of cancer."

9 Foods That Help Prevent Prostate Cancer! NATURAL CURES for PROSTATE CANCER in Men. If you want to do all you can to prevent prostate cancer, your first stop should be the grocery store, a top expert says. “There are foods that contain nutrients which have been found to help prevent prostate cancer so what you eat may help make a difference,” Dr. Edward Gheiler said. Prostate cancer is the most common non-skin cancer in men. According to the American Cancer Society, about 161,360 men will develop prostate cancer this year, and the disease will result in about 26,730 deaths. Eating a healthy diet that contains foods that reduce prostate cancer also pays off in helping to prevent cardiovascular disease – heart disease and stroke – which is the biggest killer of men in the U.S., Gheiler notes. “Any diet that is good for your heart is good for your prostate, so you can help prevent cardiovascular disease and cancer at the same time,” adds Gheiler, an urologist at Palmetto General Hospital in Hialeah, Fla. He also advises patients to eat a diet that is low in fat, which is a culprit in cardiovascular disease and plays a role in cancer development as well. There is also evidence of a dietary connection between cancer and diet found in the differing rates of the disease in certain cultures, Gheiler says. “The Japanese have low rates of prostate cancer, but when they move to the U.S., the rate in their offspring doubles,” he notes. The Japanese diet is high in green tea, soy, vegetables, and fish. Whole, fresh foods, as compared to supplements, are better for prostate cancer prevention as they contain an array of flavonoids and antioxidants, which may work together to provide more cancer-fighting power, says Gheiler. “But even though these foods are healthy, people should avoid eating them in large quantities. A healthy, balanced diet is best,” he says. Here are Gheiler's top picks for nine foods that may prevent prostate cancer: Broccoli: Research finds men who eat a diet rich in vegetables generally have a reduced prostate cancer risk, but cruciferous vegetables, such as broccoli, may have an edge. They are rich in contain sulforaphane, a compound that target human cancer cells and slows them down. Don’t like broccoli? Brussels sprouts, kale, and cauliflower contain it too. Brazil Nuts: Selenium helps prevent the cellular damage that leads to cancer. Brazil nuts contain the most of it of any food by far, but smaller amounts of this trace element are also found in yellow fin tuna, halibut, and sardines. Tomatoes: Lycopene, a powerful antioxidant found in tomatoes, could explain why studies show foods made with tomatoes reduce prostate cancer risk. “This cancer-fighting effect is found only in cooked tomatoes, so choose tomato sauce over raw tomatoes,” says Gheiler. Salmon: A cold-water fish, salmon is packed with omega-3 fatty acids, which are polyunsaturated fats that have been shown to reduce prostate cancer risk. Coffee: Studies find that drinking multiple cups of coffee daily – at least three – may reduce prostate cancer risk. “The effect may be due to stepped up metabolism,” says Gheiler. If you prefer green tea, research finds it also may help protect against prostate cancer. Carrots: While all vegetables may help prevent prostate cancer, a small study published in the Journal of European Nutrition found that men who ate carrots three times a week cut their prostate cancer risk by nearly 20 percent. Oranges: Citrus fruits contain vitamin C, which some studies find is toxic to cancer cells. Coconut Oil: This popular oil may help prevent prostate cancer. “It’s also good for the brain and it takes away food cravings,” says Gheiler. Berries: Berries, particularly raspberries, have been linked to a reduced risk of prostate cancer. The natural pigments that give berries its color denote their high antioxidant content.

A lot of men get this test to rule out prostate cancer. PSA or Prostate Specific Antigen is a secretion by the prostate to help thin the semen fluid so sperm can swim freely. The ancient Greek word for sperm is “living bean” and the code for female and male is in the sperm. Richard Ablin PHD is the one who discovered the PSA or Prostate Specific Antigen. He also talks about the side effects of the Radical Prostateconomy. Some Reasons or Cause of High PSA 1. The day before, you went in a long jog. 2. Under Stress 3. Inflammation 4. Enlarged Prostate Gland PSA Blood Value - Risk of Prostate Cancer 1. Low risk: less than 10 2. Immediate Risk: 10-20 3. High Risk: greater than 20 Side Effects of Radical Prostateconomy 1. Incontinent 2. Impotent In this video we are gonna talk about something called PSA Prostate Specific Antigen. A lot of men get this test as they get older to rule out prostate cancer. So what is it? It is a secretion by the prostate, by the way the prostate normally should be the size of a walnut about 1 ounce, to help thin semen fluid so sperm can swim freely. The ancient Greek word for sperm means living been because you have this little cell with a tail that could actually swim like a mino carrying half of the genetic material to connect up with the ovum to fuse and form one body. The code for female and male is in the sperm. So this video is based on a book called The Great Prostate Hoax by Richard Albin PHD – this is the guy in 1970 who actually discovered PSA and he is writing a book about it. It is quite fascinating. So if you do research on PSA, they have certain blood values. You have Low risk: less than 10, Immediate Risk: 10-20 and High Risk: greater than 20. He found that these are arbitrary numbers, they are not based on fact, they are based on opinion because he found that you can have prostate cancer with low numbers and not have cancer with high numbers. There are many reasons for high PSA. Lets say for example the day before you went in a long jog or you are under stress, or you have inflammation, or you have an enlarged prostate gland – all of these could cause high PSA and as you get older, most men developed an enlarged prostate as the normal aging process. In fact he said this, some men died because of prostate cancer and many man that have prostate cancer die from old age with prostate cancer. The thing about prostate cancer is that its very rare for it to spread outside the gland itself.

Current treatment for prostate cancer is expensive, has numerous side-effects, and has a high mortality rate. It is astonishing how long this ailment has affected humanity without providing a reliable solution. Consequently, our team will examine how gold charged nanoparticles are used to aid the treatment of prostate cancer, specifically via drug delivery. These particles have a gold inner core and are coated with polyethylene glycol. Polyethylene glycol and gold are used due to their relatively inert state and non-toxicity. Gold is also used because, at a nanoscale, it is a catalyst for reactions. The surface chemistry of gold nanoparticles can be altered so that they can be coated with small polymers and other therapeutic agents such as cancer-treating drugs (specifically Docetaxel and Doxorubicin). This also gives the patient's DNA the ability to bond to the nanoparticle’s surface, which allows these nanoparticles to travel through the body without being rejected. These nanoparticles are spherical shaped, and while studies are beginning to show that non-spherical particles are more effective than spherical particles, researchers do not yet fully understand the shape effect non-spherical particles have on cancerous cells. The diameter of these nanoparticles is less than 170nm so that they can effectively fit through and diffuse inside cells and capillaries. Additionally, these nanoparticles are charged. Due to their charge, the nanoparticles repel each other, which prevents them from aggregating. Furthermore, it simply helps nanoparticles interact with cells and diffuse through concentration barriers more efficiently. This method of prostate cancer treatment is still being researched and has yet to be approved for medical use; however, it has the potential to replace current treatment methods, as it could be more effective and safer in practice.

Dr. Peter Grimm discusses the work of the Prostate Cancer Results Study Group and a tool to help you determine which prostate cancer treatments are most effective at eliminating localized cancer, and preventing it from coming back. Visit our website at https://prostatecancerfree.org Closed Captions, (CC), enabled for English, Spanish, Japanese, Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional). You have a choice on treatment selection. For men and their loved ones facing a decision on the best treatment for localized prostate cancer, this video and our website will introduce you to the results of a new study comparing the effectiveness of the various treatments including robotic prostatectomy, brachytherapy, IMRT, proton radiation, HIFU, Cyberknife and others. Our expert panel reviewed more than 28,000 articles published over a 14 year period from all available respected journals on prostate cancer treatment. The panel selected over 1,100 articles to be included in the study results. See how effective each prostate cancer treatment is at preventing recurrence of cancer in men, and curing their cancer. https://prostatecancerfree.org Video Development - Dean Dubinsky Video Transcript: Prostate Cancer Free Foundation. Increasing Knowledge - Building Hope. Dr Peter Grimm, Prostate Cancer Results Study Group. For almost 30 years Doctor Grimm has worked tirelessly in the battle against prostate cancer treating thousands of patients and training even more physicians. You have prostate cancer. The good news is that the overall survival for prostate cancer is generally very good. The next question, however, is which treatment is best for you? Which treatment will result in the long term likelihood that the cancer will never return. In order to make this decision you need current, up to date, unbiased information. Doctor Peter Grimm is the leader of the Prostate Cancer Results Study Group. A group of physicians from around the world, who have come together to review the worlds literature on the effectiveness of different prostate cancer treatments. The Prostate Cancer Results Study Group has reviewed more than 28,000 articles, published from all available respected journals. From these articles, over 1100 were identified as related to treatment results. Spanning a fourteen year period, these results provide a roadmap of which prostate cancer treatments have been the most successful in keeping cancer from coming back. This work is the focus of this video. The Prostate Cancer Results Study Group work is unprecedented. It represents fourteen years of evaluating the results of the various treatments that are available for your cancer. With this information you can compare treatments, you can compare combination of treatments and determine which treatments are best for you. It will help you determine which treatment will result in the cancer going away and never coming back in your lifetime. The Prostate Cancer Treatment Research Foundation has recently made the results of this study easily available through an interactive website. To use this new comparison tool, you'll need to know three things about your diagnosis. Your PSA level, the Stage of your cancer and the Grade or Gleason Score from the biopsy. Using these numbers the website will help determine your risk group, Low, Intermediate or High Risk. The interactive chart on the website allows you to compare the effectiveness of each treatment. For example, using the chart for high-risk disease you can see the results for surgery. The scale on the left to the chart shows the percentage of patients with no sign of cancer recurrence. The scale at the bottom shows how these results change over the years. To compare other treatments simply select them in the.e list. Here we compare surgery with external beam radiation. In the high-risk categories you can also view the results of combined treatments, such as External Beam Radiation, Seed Implants and ADT or Hormone Therapy. Making this information directly available to you as opposed to the medical community only, is remarkable. This information is available through the Foundation website and can be used along with your physician and your family to help you make an informed decision about which treatment might be best for you.

Take Dr. Berg's Advanced Evaluation Quiz: http://bit.ly/EvalQuiz ***DOWNLOAD THIS RESEARCH DATA FROM THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION: https://www.iarc.fr/en/publications/p... Your report will then be sent via email analyzing 104 potential symptoms, giving you a much deeper insight into the cause-effect relationship of your body issues. It's free and very enlightening. Dr. Berg talks about what he would eat if you have cancer. Cancer is dependent on sugar metabolism (glycolysis). The uptake of glucose is 10-12 times more for cancer cells than normal cell. Glucose increases tumor growth. High blood sugars can increase the risk of breast cancer. PET scans detect where cancers are due to the fact that they eat sugar. WHAT TO DO: 1. Avoid all sugars 2. Consume cruciferous 3. Consume all organic foods 4. Garlic is the #1 food for cancer in that studies show the most positive impact. 5. Get a good amount of vitamin D from the sun.

read more on the link : Researchers from Canada have found that having a diet of red meat, organ meats, soft drink and bottled water increased the risk of getting prostate cancer. They compared the diets of 80 men with prostate cancer, and 334 healthy men, and the diet just described more than doubled the risk of developing prostate cancer. So what prostate diet can reduce the risk of prostate cancer? Swedish researchers examined the diet of 1499 men with prostate cancer and 1130 men who were healthy, and they published their findings in the Cancer Causes and Control journal. They found that eating foods rich in phytoestrogens decreased the risk of prostate cancer. Phytoestrogens are plant molecules that have a weak estrogenic effect. They are made converted in the intestines from plant precursors by bacteria as they digest food. They are taken up by the same parts of the body that process the hormone estrogen. Interestingly, one of the treatments for prostate cancer by doctors involves using estrogens to reduce the level of testosterone in men with advanced prostate cancer. It does this indirectly, through its effect on the hypothalamus, as less luteinizing hormone releasing hormone is produced by the hypothalamus. This means not as much luteinizing hormone is released by the body, which suppresses the production of testosterone. High doses of estrogens for men can lead to cardiovascular complications. But phytoestrogens obtained from diet, in less quantities than a drug, and with a milder effect to start with, should not pose a problem. And researchers don't yet know what exactly causes phytoestrogens to have such a protective effect, whether it is similar to that of the estrogen treatment for advanced prostate cancers. And they don't know which phytoestrogens are the most active. So what phytoestrogen foods could you include in a diet for a healthy prostate? Soy beans and nuts are a good source. Soy and nuts contain a type of phytoestrogen called isoflavones, whilst berries and seeds contain lignans. Foods could include peanuts, sunflower seeds, peanuts, and berries. The only possible concerns with soy is that a study in mice found that male mice that had a type of heart disease that people also have, suffered heart failure when fed a soy based diet. Whether this extrapolates to the human population is yet to be established. But it may be wise for those me who have this particular genetic heart condition, dilated cardiomyopathy, to be cautious about soy products in their diet. But for other men, soy products could be good news. A meta analysis, which is a study of related studies, published in the International Journal of Cancer, found that diets high in soy lowered men's risk of prostate cancer by 30%. Another important mineral to consider for men is zinc. Zinc is used by men's bodies to make some of the male hormones, and for general prostate health. A deficiency in zinc can lead to problems with the testicles, the prostate, and the health of the sperm. Foods that are great sources of zinc include seeds like pumpkin, sesame, and sunflower; nuts like almonds, brazil, cashews and walnuts; and foods like lettuce, oats and onions. Raw onion is particularly suggested by Paul Bedson, a natural therapist. He also suggests vegetable juice made of equal parts of beetroot, carrot, and cucumber in cases where the prostate gland is enlarged. Cranberry juice, a cup drunk three times a day, is also recommended in this case. prostate, prostrate, cancer, prostate cancer, diagnosing prostate cancer, symptoms of prostate cancer, information on prostate cancer, prostate cancer treatment, mens cancer, men's cancer, PSA, psa, therapy, hormone, symptoms, prostatectomy, brachytherapy, cryosurgery, metastatic, 3D conformal, information, diet, research, radiation, radiotherapy, prevention, screening, localised, support, surgery, awareness, treatment, advanced, donation, symptom, bracytherapy, prostatic, gleason, tookit, Tool Kit, gleason score, biopsy, psa test, prostate gland, prostate specific antigen, HIFU, hifu, bisphosphonates, cryotherapy, health professionals, charity, men, campaigning, fundraising, gland, helpline, prostate cancer publications, prostate cancer booklets, diagnosed, palliative radiotherapy, chemotherapy, continence, events, fundraise, campaign, specialist nurses, african caribbean, prostate cancer charity, prostate cancer symptoms, trus, prostate problems, prostate cancer awareness month, prostate biopsy, gleason grading, DRE, BPH, prostatitis, localised prostate cancer, locally advanced prostate cancer, advanced prostate cancer, active surveillance, hormone therapy, high dose rate brachytherapy, bisphosphonates, palliative radiotherapy, clinical trials, HIFU,Prostate cancer, PSA,prostate cancer, oncology, medical animation, health app, educational, prostate cancer animated video, prostate cancer information, prostate cancer video

It may be time for men to consider switching to Italian-style coffee as a means of reducing their risk of prostate cancer. A recent study published in the International Journal of Cancer found that the consumption of this beverage has a protective effect on prostate cancer risk. In an analysis of almost 7,000 men from Italy, those who consumed more than 3 cups a day showed a 53% reduction in prostate cancer disease risk when compared to men who had a daily 0-2 cups of coffee. “Anyone who knows me well knows that I have always been a huge advocate for the positive health benefits drinking coffee provides”, explained Dr. David Samadi. “We’ve known from many previous studies that coffee appears to have a protective effect against other health conditions such as heart disease and diabetes. The evidence on the effect of coffee consumption on prostate cancer are limited and this large study shines a light on the potential benefits of a common beverage consumed around the world on this common cancer in men.” Prostate cancer remains one of the most common chronic diseases occurring in men particularly over the age of 50. Over the years it has been known that lifestyle modifications have demonstrated a positive impact on the prevention of this disease. But the impact of coffee consumption on the incidence of the disease is still under debate. In the European Union, the country of Italy has one of the lowest incidences of prostate cancer in comparison to other populations from developed countries showing a higher prostate cancer occurrence. This study wanted to research and evaluate the effect of Italian-style coffee consumption on prostate cancer risk to gain better knowledge of coffee’s influence on this disease. Italian-style coffee is prepared unfiltered with high-pressure hot water temperature or boiling water that may result in less loss and a greater concentration of bioactive compounds that could be beneficial for reducing prostate cancer. Coffee’s antitumor effect has also been shown in other types of cancer such as bladder, breast, colorectal, esophageal, pancreatic, and liver cancers”.

Douglas C. Kelly, MD, Akhil Das, MD Department of Urology, Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, Philadelphia Pennsylvania, USA Holmium laser resection of the prostate (HoLRP) was first described by Gilling et al in 1995. HoLRP has now evolved into holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP) with the advent of the intravesical soft-tissue morcellator. The procedure involves anatomical dissection of the prostatic tissue off the surgical capsule in a retrograde fashion using a high-powered holmium laser followed by intravesical morcellation of the prostatic tissue. Some groups believe that the HoLEP procedure is the endoscopic equivalent to a simple open prostatectomy and may be superior to transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) or even open prostatectomy. The objective of this article is to explain the techniques for holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP).

A new drug from drug maker Medivation significantly improved survival in a large trial of men with advanced prostate cancer, researchers are reporting at a major cancer meeting. The advance is notable for the way it was developed -- by a prominent academic researcher whose lab did the work with almost no help from industry scientists until late in the game. It is likely to reach the market much faster than if a big pharma company had been involved. Ron Winslow discusses on the News Hub.

Video abstract of review paper Enzalutamide as a second generation antiandrogen for treatment of advanced prostate cancer published in the open access journal Drug Design, Development and Therapy by Julius Semenas, Nishtman Dizeyi and Jenny Liao Persson. Prostate cancer (PCa) is the most common malignancy, and the third leading cancer-related cause of death among men of the Western world. Upon PCa progression into metastatic disease, androgen deprivation therapy is applied as the first-line treatment, and has been shown to be effective in most patients, leading to a decrease in serum prostate-specific antigen and relief of disease-related symptoms. However, advanced PCa almost inevitably progresses to a castration-resistant state, and is currently regarded as incurable. The large body of evidence indicates that PCa cells remain dependent on androgen receptor (AR) signaling even in an androgen-deprived environment. As such, development of drugs that target AR and AR signaling pathways have become one of the major milestones in treatment of castration-resistant PCa (CRPC). Nevertheless, currently available therapies that target AR signaling are still regarded as palliative and more potent therapies are in great need. Over the past few years, a wide range of novel therapies has entered clinical trial for treatment of CRPC, including androgen synthesis inhibitors (abiraterone acetate), chemotherapeutic agents (docetaxel and cabazitaxel), and immunotherapies (sipuleucel-T). In this context, enzalutamide (previously referred to as MDV3100) is a novel second generation antiandrogen that has been demonstrated to significantly improve survival in men with metastatic CRPC in several clinical trials. In this paper we summarize recently completed and ongoing clinical trials of enzalutamide, and briefly discuss the efficacy of the novel antiandrogen therapy and its limitations for treatment of CRPC.

Video abstract of a methodology paper “Danish Prostate Cancer Registry – methodology and early results from a novel national database” published in the open access journal Clinical Epidemiology by Helgstrand JT, Klemann N, Røder MA, et al. Background: Systematized Nomenclature of Medicine (SNOMED) codes are computerprocessable medical terms used to describe histopathological evaluations. SNOMED codes are not readily usable for analysis. We invented an algorithm that converts prostate SNOMED codes into an analyzable format. We present the methodology and early results from a new national Danish prostate database containing clinical data from all males who had evaluation of prostate tissue from 1995 to 2011. Materials and methods: SNOMED codes were retrieved from the Danish Pathology Register. A total of 26,295 combinations of SNOMED codes were identified. A computer algorithm was developed to transcode SNOMED codes into an analyzable format including procedure (eg, biopsy, transurethral resection, etc), diagnosis, and date of diagnosis. For validation, ~55,000 pathological reports were manually reviewed. Prostate-specific antigen, vital status, causes of death, and tumor-node-metastasis classification were integrated from national registries. Results: Of the 161,525 specimens from 113,801 males identified, 83,379 (51.6%) were sets of prostate biopsies, 56,118 (34.7%) were transurethral/transvesical resections of the prostate (TUR-Ps), and the remaining 22,028 (13.6%) specimens were derived from radical prostatectomies, bladder interventions, etc. A total of 48,078 (42.2%) males had histopathologically verified prostate cancer, and of these, 78.8% and 16.8% were diagnosed on prostate biopsies and TUR-Ps, respectively. Future perspectives: A validated algorithm was successfully developed to convert complex prostate SNOMED codes into clinical useful data. A unique database, including males with both normal and cancerous histopathological data, was created to form the most comprehensive national prostate database to date. Potentially, our algorithm can be used for conversion of other SNOMED data and is available upon request.

Often the concern that many men have when they’re informed that their PSA levels are elevated is whether they are at risk for developing prostate cancer. A PSA test is designed to measure the level of a protein in your blood called prostatic specific antigen. While prostate cancer will of course increase the levels of PSA in your blood stream, this increase isn’t always an indication of prostate cancer. There are number of things that can elevate your PSA levels that are not related to prostate cancer. In a majority of cases an elevated PSA may be an indicator of another disorder entirely that is affecting the prostate gland. Let’s take a look at some of the most common factors that can cause an increase in PSA levels. Causes for the increase in PSA Prostatitis: Prostatitis is the inflammation of the prostate gland due to a bacterial infection. The condition is treated with antibiotics and affects mostly males below the age of 50. Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH): Benign prostatic hyperplasia is an enlargement of the prostate gland which can cause difficulty with urination or increased frequency of urination. The condition itself is non-cancerous and primarily affects men over the age of 50. A digital rectal exam (DRE) is also conducted to properly diagnose BPH or other prostate related issues. Age: Age is one factor we simply have no control over. As men age PSA levels will gradually rise. For example, men with a PSA of 2.5 by the age of 40 is considered normal. A man who reaches the age of 60 will have a normal level of 4.5, what’s ironic however is that a younger man with a PSA score of 4.5 could potentially be at greater risk for prostate cancer. Sex (Ejaculation): Ejaculation during sexual intercourse can slightly raise PSA levels. They will generally return to normal within 48 hours. This slight increase however isn’t enough to make a significant difference unless your PSA level is borderline above normal. Before having a PSA test done ask your doctor if you should avoid sexual activity. Above all else it’s important that you don’t panic and closely examine all the factors relevant to you that may be causing an increase in your PSA. Get all the information you can and speak with your doctor before considering a biopsy to accurately determine if you do in fact have prostate cancer.

Prostate cancer is an androgen-dependent disease; therefore, current approaches for treatment aim to disrupt androgen signaling. Unfortunately, this approach is rarely curative due to the selection of resistant clones and adaptation of stromal and endothelial cells to support tumor growth. In this episode, Neil Bhowmick and colleagues evaluated epigenetic alterations in prostate cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAFs) and determined that the Ras inhibitor RASAL3 is silenced in these cells, thereby driving macropinocytosis-mediated glutamine synthesis due to increased oncogenic Ras activity. The increase in stromal glutamine associated with neuroendocrine differentiation, and in prostate cancer patients, blood glutamine levels were elevated in patients that were resistant to androgen deprivation compared to those that were responsive. Together, these results suggest that strategies to prevent glutamine uptake be considered in conjunction with androgen deprivation.
