Challenges and opportunities to the design and implementation of chemoprevention trials for prostate cancer


, : Challenges and opportunities to the design and implementation of chemoprevention trials for prostate cancer. Urologic Oncology 21(1): 73-78

Since 1991 and the activation of the Prostate Cancer Prevention Trial as well as similar prevention studies in several other organ sites, the interest in prostate cancer prevention has increased substantially. Despite such interest, the challenges to prevention trials-in design, implementation, prioritization, and allocation of resources-are substantial. Simultaneously, there has been an explosion in new targets and agents that may have an effect in the prevention of this disease. In this manuscript, we discuss these challenges to the study of prostate cancer prevention and provide a blueprint for prioritization of future studies.

In order to develop a model system for studying drug metabolism, we constructed recombinant yeast strains expressing human liver cytochromes P450. A high yield of cDNA-derived CYP2D6 was obtained, due to optimization of the initiation ATG codon co...

This is usually an early event, therefore the dissection of the aorta may manifest itself as an acute pri...

In this layer we have observed the presence of two neuronal types and var...

In previous studies we documented an increase in the levels of the serotonin metabolite, 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid, in the congenitally hyperammonemic sparse fur mouse. To extend these findings, brain serotonin receptors were studied in these ani...
