We aimed to review the current state-of-the-art imaging methods used for primary and secondary staging of prostate cancer, mainly focusing on multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging and positron-emission tomography/computed tomography with new radiotracers. An expert panel of urologists, radiologists and nuclear medicine physicians with wide experience in prostate cancer led a PubMed/MEDLINE search for prospective, retrospective original research, systematic review, meta-analyses and clinical guidelines for local and systemic staging of the primary tumor and recurrence disease after treatment...

OBJECTIVES: To investigate the progression to castration-resistant prostate cancer after primary androgen deprivation therapy, and to build a simple risk prediction model for primary androgen deprivation therapy patients based on the Japan Cancer of the Prostate Risk Assessment criteria. METHODS: A total of 602 patients who received primary androgen deprivation therapy were entered into the Korean Cancer Study of the Prostate database. The effect of prognostic factors was determined by multivariate analysis...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the performance characteristics of urinalysis and urine microscopy parameters for predicting urine culture results and to implement a reflex urine culture program. METHODS: We reviewed the charts of all patients presenting to our clinic January-March 2013 and June-August 2014, excluding those who were catheter-dependent or with urinary diversions. We assessed the association of urinalysis and urine microscopy parameters on urine culture outcomes defining a positive urinalysis as nitrite-positive and/or the presence of ≥5 white blood cells per high-powered field with bacteria and a positive urine culture as ≥10 000 colony-forming units/mL excluding diphtheroids...

METHODS: We retrospectively enrolled 2115 patients from 15 institutions in four European countries undergoing transrectal Koelis fusion biopsy from 2010 to 2017. A variable number of target (usually 2-4) and random cores (usually 10-14) were carried out, depending on the clinical case and institution habits...

OBJECTIVES: To identify key oncogenes and proteins that are controlled by the microRNA miR-29 family (miR-29a, miR-29b and miR-29c) in renal cell carcinoma pathogenesis. METHODS: Genome-wide gene expression and in silico database analyses were carried out. The Cancer Genome Atlas database was used to investigate the clinical significance of gene expression data in renal cell carcinoma patients. Loss-of-function assays were applied to investigate the function of target genes...

REVIEW
Huseyin Besiroglu, Emin Ozbek
The objective of this study was to pool individual studies regarding the association of blood lipid profiles with urolithiasis to carry out a systematic review and meta-analysis. We searched MEDLINE, PubMed, Embase and Cochrane Library to identify the relevant studies up to November 2017. Studies that met all inclusion criteria were chosen, and a pooled analysis of the odds ratio between urolithiasis and dyslipidemia traits was calculated. A total of 11 observational studies (seven cross-sectional, three cohort, one case-control) with a total of 282 479 participants were examined...

OBJECTIVES: To test for racial disparities in lymph node dissection rates, lymph node dissection extent, lymph node invasion rates and cancer-specific mortality in North American African Americans versus non-Hispanic whites, at radical prostatectomy for clinically localized prostate cancer. METHODS: Within the Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results database (2010-2014), we identified 58 974 African Americans or non-Hispanic whites with prostate cancer, who underwent radical prostatectomy with available clinical stage, prostate-specific antigen and biopsy Gleason score...

OBJECTIVES: To assess the cost-effectiveness of mirabegron 50 mg relative to tolterodine extended release 4 mg for the treatment of overactive bladder if used as the first-line treatment in Japan. METHODS: A Markov model was developed to simulate the cost-effectiveness of the mirabegron first-line treatment (and tolterodine second-line) versus tolterodine first-line treatment (and mirabegron second-line) taken for 5 years from the randomized European-Australian study (SCORPIO trial) and single technology appraisal assessment report by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence...

REVIEW
Isabel Rauscher, Matthias Eiber, Wolfgang A Weber, Jürgen E Gschwend, Thomas Horn, Tobias Maurer
Positron-emission tomography/computed tomography combining both functional and morphological information has emerged as a powerful tool in oncological imaging within the past decades. The most commonly used radiotracer in oncology visualizing metabolic information is 2-[18F]fluoro-2-deoxy-d-glucose. However, the use of 2-[18F]fluoro-2-deoxy-d-glucose in urological oncology is challenging, as it is limited by physiological excretion through the urinary system. Therefore, it is only useful when applied to specific indications in selected patients with urological malignancy; for example, for detection of residual disease in the post-chemotherapy management of patients with seminoma...
