AIM: The etiology of the disease of Peyronie is not certainly known. However, penile micro traumas are thought to be important in the pathogenesis of Peyronie's disease (PD) in genetically predisposed individuals. In this study, we aimed to determine the relationship of some trace element and heavy metals with PD. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Thirty Peyronie patients and 26 healthy volunteers were included in the study. In individuals in both groups, levels of serum trace elements (Manganese [Mn], Cu, Cobalt (Co), zinc [Zn], Cd, and iron [Fe]) were determined separately by Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer method in Yüzüncü Yıl University Central Research Laboratory...

INTRODUCTION: It is well known that there is a reduction of circadian rhythm in blood testosterone levels with aging. Our previous report revealed that 3 mg of short-acting testosterone ointment (Glowmin: GL) elevated serum testosterone levels to within the physiological range for 4-6 h. The aim of this study was to clarify the clinical efficacy and safety of GL used topically once every morning, to enhance the circadian rhythm of testosterone, for late-onset hypogonadism (LOH). METHODS: A total of 61 LOH patients received 3 mg of GL topically once a day in the morning on scrotal skin for 24 weeks...

Prostatic diseases such as hyperplasia and cancer are a consequence of glandular aging due to the loss of homeostasis. Glandular homeostasis is guaranteed by the delicate balance between production and cell death. Both cell renewal and apoptosis are part of this delicate balance. We will explore the predictive capacity for biochemical progression, following prostatectomy, of some members of the Bcl-2 family and of proteins involved in cell cycle inhibition in conjunction with established classical markers. The expression of Bcl-2, Bcl-xL, Mcl-1, Bax, Bim, Bad, PUMA, Noxa, p21, p27, Rb and p53 were analyzed by immunochemistry in 86 samples of radical prostatectomy and correlated with each of the markers established clinicopathological tests using statistical tests such as Sperman, Kaplan-Meier curves, unifactorial Cox, and multifactorial...

Selective estrogen receptor modulators (SERMs) represent a class of drugs that act as agonist or antagonist for estrogen receptor in a tissue-specific manner. The SERMs drugs are initially used for the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis in postmenopausal women. Bone health in prostate cancer patients has become a significant concern, whereby patients undergo androgen deprivation therapy is often associated with deleterious effects on bone. Previous preclinical and epidemiological findings showed that estrogens play a dominant role in improving bone health as compared to testosterone in men...
