BACKGROUND: Following androgen deprivation for the treatment of advanced adenocarcinoma of the prostate, tumors can progress to neuroendocrine prostate cancer (NEPC). This transdifferentiation process is poorly understood, but trafficking of transcriptional factors and/or cytoskeletal rearrangements may be involved. We observed the role of geranylgeranylation in this process by treatment with digeranyl bisphosphonate (DGBP), a selective inhibitor of geranylgeranyl pyrophosphate synthase which blocks the prenylation of small GTPases such as Rho and Rab family proteins, including Cdc42 and Rac1...

Differentiated embryonic chondrocyte (DEC) genes have been reported to be involved in the regulation of mammalian circadian rhythms, differentiation, apoptosis, the response to hypoxia and epithelial‑mesenchymal transition (EMT). Activation of transforming growth factor (TGF)‑β signaling is known to promote EMT for the development of metastatic castration‑resistant prostate cancer (PCa). However, the role of DEC genes in the TGF‑β‑induced EMT of PCa remains unclear. In the present study it was demonstrated that TGF‑β increased the transcriptional/translational levels of DEC1 but decreased those of DEC2 in PC‑3 cells...

Even in the era of novel targeted agents, switching to a second-line nonsteroidal antiandrogen (NSAA) is still widely used in treating metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC), especially in undeveloped countries. However, whether prior treatment with a second-line NSAA would impact the efficacy of abiraterone acetate (Abi) remains uncertain. In the current study, 87 mCRPC patients treated with Abi were analyzed. Among them, 21 were treated with a second-line NSAA (from bicalutamide to flutamide) before receiving abiraterone, while the remaining 66 received Abi directly...

Five new agents have been shown to prolong survival in patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer, including two targeting androgen receptor signaling (abiraterone acetate plus prednisone; enzalutamide). Recognition that these tumors remain driven by androgen receptor signaling has prompted clinical evaluation of these agents at earlier states in the prostate cancer disease continuum, along with the continued development of new agents targeting this pathway. Areas covered: This article focuses on apalutamide, a next-generation nonsteroidal antiandrogen, with current literature queried in PubMed/Medline...

Patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) develop resistance to conventional therapies including docetaxel (DTX). Identifying molecular pathways underlying DTX resistance is critical for developing novel combinatorial therapies to prevent or reverse this resistance. To identify transcriptomic signatures associated with acquisition of chemoresistance we profiled gene expression in DTX-sensitive and -resistant mCRPC cells using RNA sequencing (RNA-seq). PC3 and DU145 cells were selected for DTX resistance and this phenotype was validated by immunoblotting using DTX resistance markers (e...

BACKGROUND: Recruited myeloid cells are known to promote cancer initiation, malignant progression, metastasis, and resistance to therapy in the tumor niche. We tested the hypothesis that circulating blood monocytes from advanced prostate cancer (PCa) patients exhibit a protumor phenotype and directly influence the tumor microenvironment in response to tumor-derived signals. METHODS: Blood monocytes from advanced and stable PCa patients were cultured, and the conditioned media (CM) were collected and analyzed using standard invasion and wound closure assays to measure effects on invasion and motility of PCa tumor cells...

Nearly all men with prostate cancer who are treated with androgen deprivation therapy develop disease progression. There is considerable evidence to suggest that CXCL 13 released by tumor cells leads to B-cell infiltration into the prostate cells. This B-cell infiltration has been postulated to play a role in development of disease progression following androgen-deprivation therapies. We present a case of a patient who achieved remission of metastatic castrate-resistant prostate cancer after receiving rituximab and bendamustine for the treatment of follicular lymphoma...

Enzalutamide, a nonsteroidal second-generation antiandrogen, has been recently approved for the management of castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC). Although patients can benefit from enzalutamide at the beginning of this therapy, acquired enzalutamide resistance usually occurs within a short period. This motivated us to investigate the mechanism involved and possible approaches for overcoming enzalutamide resistance in CRPC. In the present study, we found that HMG-CoA reductase (HMGCR), a crucial enzyme in the mevalonate pathway for sterol biosynthesis, is elevated in enzalutamide-resistant prostate cancer cell lines...

We aimed to investigate the prognostic value of chromogranin A (CgA) in castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC). We conducted a systematic literature search of PubMed, Web of Science, and EMBASE for citations published prior to September 2017 that described CgA and CRPC and performed a standard meta-analysis on survival outcomes. Our meta-analysis included eight eligible studies with 686 patients. The results were as follows: progression-free survival (PFS) was associated with CgA level (hazard ratio [HR] = 2...

Background: Cervical cancer (CaCx) is the second most common cancer in Indian women. Cytotoxic T-lymphocyte-associated antigen 4 (CTLA-4) + 49 AA polymorphism is known to be associated with CaCx. Current attempt is to use immunotherapy for the treatment of metastatic melanoma and metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer, i.e., blocking of CTLA-4 using a fully human monoclonal CTLA-4 antibody to disrupt its inhibitory signal. This allows the CTLs to destroy the cancer cells. There is no information available on the soluble level of CTLA-4 on which the immunotherapy is targeted...

Background Tivantinib is a non-ATP competitive inhibitor of c-MET receptor tyrosine kinase that may have additional cytotoxic mechanisms including tubulin inhibition. Prostate cancer demonstrates higher c-MET expression as the disease progresses to more advanced stages and to a castration resistant state. Methods 80 patients (pts) with asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic mCRPC were assigned (2:1) to either tivantinib 360 mg PO BID or placebo (P). The primary endpoint was progression free survival (PFS). Results Of the 80 pts...

Castrate-Resistant Prostate-Cancer (CRPC) is one of the most common malignancies occurring in men. Unfortunately, even if several recently approved agents clinically improved the outcome of CRPC patients, none of these is curative especially for a splice version of the Androgen Receptor (AR) AR-V7, which is a variant of the receptor constitutively activated and does not require the presence of androgens for the activation AR down-stream pathways. Since high AR-V7 expression is one of the most common features of CRPC, targeting this receptor variant is considered as one of the most promising strategies for treating this disease...
