Hematospermia or hemospermia is defined as the presence of blood in ejaculate. The true prevalence of the condition is unknown because many cases escape the patient's notice, and remain unrecognized and unreported. There are two main aims in the patient evaluation: first, to ensure that there is no specific condition that is treatable; second, to reassure the patient's parents that no causative factor is present. Many physicians are unfamiliar with this disorder and this forms the basis for our current review...

Primary seminal vesicle carcinoma is a rare entity whose diagnosis can be achieved ruling out the main carcinomas that commonly invade the seminal vesicles. Although a panel of immunohistochemical markers (CA125, CK7, CK20, PSA and PSAP) has been proposed as unique for primary seminal vesicle carcinoma, a reliable positive marker is lacking. In this article, we report a case of primary seminal vesicle carcinoma in a 57-years-old man. The tumor was localized to the left seminal vesicle and histologically characterized by papillae lined by broad eosinophilic cells with pleomorphic nuclei...

The selective estrogen receptor modulator tamoxifen exerts estrogen agonistic or antagonistic actions on several tissues, including bone. The off-target effects of tamoxifen are one of the most widely recognized pitfalls of tamoxifen-inducible Cre recombinases (CreERs), potentially confounding the phenotypic findings. Still, the validation of tamoxifen induction schemes that minimize the side effects of the drug has not been addressed. Here, we compared the side effects on the skeleton and other androgen-responsive targets of a shortened tamoxifen regimen (2 doses of 190 mg/kg body weight by oral gavage) to a standard protocol (4 doses) and determined their efficiency in inducing CreER-mediated gene deletion...

Prenatal betamethasone (BM) exposure in rats negatively impacts sperm quality and male fertility. Studies have shown that BM can cause multi-generational effects on the pituitary-adrenal-axis of rats. The objective of this study was to assess the reproductive development and fertility of male rats (F2) whose fathers (F1) were exposed to BM (0.1mg/kg) on gestational days 12, 13, 18 and 19. In F2 rats, there was a significant reduction in body weights of the BM-treated group at PND 1 as well as delayed onset of puberty, and decreases in FSH levels, Leydig cell volume, sperm number and motility, seminal vesicle contractility and ejaculated volume...

Most men with hematospermia or hemospermia (HS) are young (<40 years of age), presenting with transient or episodic HS without other signs or symptoms of disease. The condition is self-limiting in most cases and idiopathic in nature. When a cause can be identified, infections of the urogenital tract are the most common. Imaging does not play a role in this patient population. In older men (>40 years of age), clinical screening for prostate cancer is advised. Furthermore, when HS is persistent or has symptoms, causes include obstruction or stricture at the level of the verumontanum, calcifications or calculi in the prostate, ejaculatory ducts or seminal vesicles, and cysts arising within these structures...

Previously, we described prostate cancer (PCa) detection (83% sensitivity; 67% specificity) in seminal plasma by CE-MS/MS. Moreover, advanced disease was distinguished from organ-confined tumors with 80% sensitivity and 82% specificity. The discovered biomarkers were naturally occurring fragments of larger seminal proteins, predominantly semenogelin 1 and 2, representing endpoints of the ejaculate liquefaction. Here we identified proteases putatively involved in PCa specific protein cleavage, and examined gene expression and tissue protein levels, jointly with cell localization in normal prostate (nP), benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH), seminal vesicles and PCa using qPCR, Western blotting and confocal laser scanning microscopy...

PURPOSE: To provide a benchmark for seminal vesicle (SV) margin selection to account for intrafractional motion and to investigate the effectiveness of 2 motion surrogates in predicting intrafractional SV coverage. METHODS AND MATERIALS: Fifteen prostate patients were studied. Each patient had 5 pairs (1 patient had 4 pairs) of pretreatment and posttreatment cone beam CTs (CBCTs). Each pair of CBCTs was registered on the basis of prostate fiducial markers. All pretreatment SVs were expanded with 1-, 2-, 3-, 4-, 5-, and 8-mm isotropic margins to form a series of planning target volumes, and their intrafractional coverage to the posttreatment SV determined the "ground truth" for exact coverage...

AIM: The main purpose of this study was to evaluate the differences in dose-volume histograms of IMRT treatments for prostate cancer based on the delineation of the main organs at risk (rectum and bladder) as solid organs or by contouring their wall. BACKGROUND: Rectum and bladder have typically been delineated as solid organs, including the waste material, which, in practice, can lead to an erroneous assessment of the risk of adverse effects. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective study was made on 25 patients treated with IMRT radiotherapy for prostate adenocarcinoma...

OBJECTIVES: The incidental presence of seminal vesicle epithelium in prostate needle biopsies is generally recognisable through routine microscopy. However, the biopsy can sometimes be erroneously interpreted as malignant due to its architectural and cytological characteristics, and immunohistochemistry can be useful for correctly identifying the biopsy. Our objective was to analyse the potential usefulness of GATA-3 as a marker of seminal epithelium. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Through immunohistochemistry with a monoclonal anti-GATA-3 antibody (clone L50-823), we studied seminal vesicle sections from 20 prostatectomy specimens, 12 prostate needle biopsies that contained seminal vesicle tissue and 68 prostate biopsies without seminal vesicle epithelium, 36 of which showed adenocarcinoma...

BACKGROUND: There are no clear data regarding the association between body mass index (BMI) and outcomes after radical prostatectomy (RP). This study aimed to investigate the association between BMI and biochemical recurrence (BCR) after RP in a large international contemporary cohort of patients with prostate cancer. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed data from 6,519 patients who underwent RP at 5 institutions. BMI was analyzed as both a continuous and categorical variable (<25kg/m(2), 25-29...

Despite being discovered almost 50years ago little is known regarding the genetic profile of ductal adenocarcinoma of the prostate (DAC). In recent years, progress has been made in the understanding of the genetics of acinar adenocarcinomas and at least seven genetically different subtypes have been identified. DAC is known to present at an advanced stage with a high rate of extraprostatic extension and seminal vesicle invasion, and a decreased interval to biochemical recurrence and the development of metastatic disease, when compared to acinar adenocarcinoma...

Introduction: There is increasing interest in PET/CT with PSMA tracers for imaging of prostate cancer due to higher detection rates of prostate cancer lesions as compared to PET/CT with choline. For (68)Ga-PSMA-11 tracers, late imaging at 180 min post injection (p.i.) instead of imaging at 45-60 min p.i. improves detection of prostate cancer lesions. For (18)F-DCFPyL improved detection rates has recently been reported in a small pilot study. In this study, we report the effects of PET/CT imaging at 120 minutes p...
