Androgen deprivation is implicated in reducing neoangiogenesis in prostate cancer (PCA). Androgens regulate the expression of the vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF); hypoxia stimulates VEGF expression through the activation of the transcriptional factor, hypoxia-inducible factor 1 (HIF-1). We tested the hypothesis that an effect of androgens on VEGF expression is regulated directly by HIF-1 and HIF-2, and antiandrogens block HIF function.

Androgen deprivation (ADT) by medical or surgical castration represents the standard therapeutic approach for managing prostate cancer (PCA) with systemic or locoregional metastases. Although ADT has been successfully used for more than 60 years, there are still major controversies with regard to the initiation (early versus delayed), type (complete versus monotherapy), and duration (continuous versus intermittent) of treatment. It is the purpose of this review to critically present the results of the various ADT options. Bilateral orchiectomy and subcutaneous application of luteinising hormone-releasing hormone (LHRH) analogues represent the guideline-recommended standard treatment for metastatic PCA, whereas estrogens are no longer recommended because of significant cardiovascular side effects despite comparable therapeutic efficacy. Antiandrogen monotherapy with bicalutamide is comparable to LHRH analogues in men with minimal tumour burden. However, survival rates are inferior in patients with extensive metastatic disease, in whom medical or surgical castration should be favoured. Complete ADT results in a median survival benefit of about 5% in men with low metastatic tumour burden, and it cannot be recommended for routine use. Early ADT is associated with a significant advantage in terms of symptom-free survival and prevention of metastasis-associated complications, but it does not result in a prolonged progression-free and overall survival when compared with delayed ADT. Despite encouraging results, intermittent ADT remains an experimental therapeutic approach that should be considered on an individual basis in carefully selected patients. Adjuvant ADT is still discussed controversially for men after radical prostatectomy, whereas it has become the standard approach in patients who undergo external beam radiation for locally advanced PCA.

Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) is a highly diverse group of cancers, and subtyping is necessary to better identify molecular-based therapies. In this study, we analyzed gene expression (GE) profiles from 21 breast cancer data sets and identified 587 TNBC cases. Cluster analysis identified 6 TNBC subtypes displaying unique GE and ontologies, including 2 basal-like (BL1 and BL2), an immunomodulatory (IM), a mesenchymal (M), a mesenchymal stem-like (MSL), and a luminal androgen receptor (LAR) subtype. Further, GE analysis allowed us to identify TNBC cell line models representative of these subtypes. Predicted "driver" signaling pathways were pharmacologically targeted in these cell line models as proof of concept that analysis of distinct GE signatures can inform therapy selection. BL1 and BL2 subtypes had higher expression of cell cycle and DNA damage response genes, and representative cell lines preferentially responded to cisplatin. M and MSL subtypes were enriched in GE for epithelial-mesenchymal transition, and growth factor pathways and cell models responded to NVP-BEZ235 (a PI3K/mTOR inhibitor) and dasatinib (an abl/src inhibitor). The LAR subtype includes patients with decreased relapse-free survival and was characterized by androgen receptor (AR) signaling. LAR cell lines were uniquely sensitive to bicalutamide (an AR antagonist). These data may be useful in biomarker selection, drug discovery, and clinical trial design that will enable alignment of TNBC patients to appropriate targeted therapies.

Data demonstrate a benefit from neoadjuvant and adjuvant hormone-deprivation therapy with luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone agonists in patients who are treated with radiotherapy for localized prostate carcinoma; however, this approach has detrimental effects on quality of life (QOL). A cross-sectional study was undertaken to evaluate the impact on QOL, voiding function, and sexual function of an alternative hormone-deprivation approach.

We confirmed that PAK6 protein is expressed in prostate and breast cancer cell lines. PAK6 expression in LNCaP PCa cells was not directly androgen regulated, but was markedly increased when the cells were cultured for 6-8 weeks in steroid hormone depleted medium. By immunohistochemistry, PAK6 was weakly expressed in normal prostate epithelium. Its expression was increased in primary and metastatic PCa, and was further increased in tumors that relapsed after androgen deprivation therapy. LC/MS/MS identified IQ motif containing GTPase activating protein 1 (IQGAP1) and protein phosphatase 1B (PP1B) as candidate PAK6 interacting proteins, and these findings were confirmed by coimmunoprecipitation.

The purpose of this investigation was to explore the potential benefit of hormone therapy in addition to external beam radiotherapy for patients with early-stage (T1-2), intermediate-(prostate-specific antigen [PSA] > 10 or Gleason score >or= 7) or high-risk (PSA > 10 and Gleason score >or= 7) prostate cancer. The charts of 412 patients with early-stage intermediate- and high-risk prostate cancer treated with external beam radiotherapy with or without a 4-month total androgen blockade were reviewed. The groups were balanced with respect to age, pretreatment PSA, and stage, but differed with respect to Gleason score and radiation dose. Biochemical failure rates, as defined by the ASTRO consensus panel, were compared between those receiving and those not receiving hormones. With a median follow-up of 2.0 years, the biochemical failure rate was 12.1 versus 23.1% (p = 0.02) in favor of those receiving hormones. This difference was seen for the subgroups followed for more than 6 months (12.5 vs. 25.0%), more than 9 months (14.5 vs. 26.3%), and more than 12 months (17.3 vs. 27.0%). Thus, biochemical failure decreased with the administration of hormone therapy in this group of patients with early stage, intermediate- or high-risk prostate cancer. This finding requires validation by ongoing randomized trials.

The chi-square analyses demonstrated lower rates of GI toxicity (P = 0.013) and GU toxicity (P = 0.041) in the cohort receiving HT; this reduction in toxicity appeared to be consistent across different toxicity grades. However, on regression analysis, the only factor reaching statistical significance in predicting late GI and late GU toxicity was the radiation dose (P = 0.004 and P = 0.047, respectively). In particular, on regression analysis, HT did not reach statistical significance in predicting late GI toxicity (P = 0.229) or late GU toxicity (P = 0.910).

1. The pharmacokinetics of Casodex, a novel, non-steroidal antiandrogen, have been investigated following single oral and i.v. doses and during daily oral dosing to male and female rats and male dogs. 2. The binding of 14C-Casodex to rat, dog and human plasma proteins, determined by equilibrium dialysis, was high with values greater than 95%; in dog there was evidence for decreased binding at concentrations greater than 12 micrograms/ml. 3. Casodex was slowly absorbed over prolonged periods and its bioavailability decreased with increase in dose from 72% and 88% in male and female rats respectively at 1 mg/kg to 10% and 12% at 250 mg/kg; in dog bioavailability decreased from 100% at 0.1 mg/kg to 31% at 100 mg/kg. 4. Elimination of Casodex from plasma was slow with terminal elimination half-lives of about 1 day in rat and about 6 days in dog. On daily administration to rats Casodex accumulates slightly in plasma at 10 mg/kg but not at 250 mg/kg; in dog appreciable accumulation (9-12-fold), calculated from the ratio of trough plasma concentrations at steady state to those after a single dose, was observed at 2.5 and 10 mg/kg, but at 100 mg/kg the accumulation ratio was much lower (4-fold).

We studied the three-dimensional quantitative structure-activity relationships (3D QSAR) of 70 structurally and functionally diverse androgen receptor (AR) binding compounds using the comparative molecular similarity indices analysis (CoMSIA) method. The compound set contained 67 nonsteroidal analogues of flutamide, nilutamide, and bicalutamide whose binding mode to AR was unknown. Docking was used to identify the preferred binding modes for the nonsteroidal compounds within the AR ligand-binding pocket (LBP) and to generate the ligand alignment for the 3D QSAR analysis. The alignment produced a statistically significant and predictive model, validated by random group cross-validation and external test sets (q(2)(LOO) = 0.656, SDEP = 0.576, r(2) = 0.911, SEE = 0.293; q(2)(10) = 0.612, q(2)(5) = 0.571; pred-r(2) = 0.800). Additional model validation comes from the CoMSIA maps that were interpreted with respect to the LBP structure. The model takes into account and links the AR LBP structure, docked ligand structures, and the experimental binding activities. The results provide valuable information on intermolecular interactions between nonsteroidal ligands and the AR LBP.

ADR reports per investigated drug ranged from 2,400 to 50,000. The PRR-TA's ability to detect true-positive SDRs (as acknowledged in approved labeling) was increased compared to the conventional PRR, and performed 8-31 % better than a recently proposed stricter EU-SDR definition. The PRR-TA removed false SDRs confounded by disease or disease spill-over by up to 63 %, while retaining/increasing the number of unclassified SDRs relevant for manual validation, and thereby improving the ratio between confounded SDRs (i.e., noise) and unclassified SDRs for all investigated drugs (possible signals).

Calcitriol (1alpha,25-dihydroxyvitamin D(3)), the active metabolite of vitamin D, has recently emerged as a promising therapeutic agent in the treatment of prostate cancer, the second most common cause of cancer death in American males. In the present study, we have analyzed the effects of calcitriol treatment on the expression and activity of the UDP-glucuronosyltransferase (UGT) 2B15 and 2B17 in prostate cancer LNCaP and 22Rv1 cells. These two enzymes share a crucial role in the inactivation of androgens in the human prostate. We report that calcitriol treatment results in lower glucuronide conjugation of the active androgen dihydrotestosterone and its reduced metabolites androstane-3alpha-diol and androsterone in LNCaP cells. The same treatment also drastically decreased the mRNA and protein levels of UGT2B15 and UGT2B17 in LNCaP and 22Rv1 cells. Using casodex, an androgen receptor (AR) antagonist, and AR-specific small interfering RNA probes, we show that calcitriol requires a functional AR to inhibit the expression of the UGT2B17 gene in LNCaP cells. By contrast, transient transfection and site-directed mutagenesis experiments revealed that calcitriol down-regulates UGT2B15 promoter activity through a responsive region between positions -171 and -113 bp. In conclusion, the present study identifies the vitamin D receptor activator calcitriol as a negative regulator of the UGT2B15- and UGT2B17-dependent inactivation of androgens in prostate cancer LNCaP cells. Androgens promote prostate cancer cell proliferation; thus, the reduction of their inactivation could have a limiting effect of the calcitriol antiproliferative properties in prostate cancer cells.

Our patient was a 61-year-old man with hormone-refractory prostate cancer and a rapidly rising serum prostate-specific antigen level. During the course of therapy for prostate cancer, abnormal blood counts and subsequent bone marrow biopsy led to a diagnosis of acute lymphoblastic leukemia. He was treated with a chemotherapeutic regimen in standard use for lymphoblastic leukemia, which resulted in an unusual response of his prostate cancer, with declining serum prostate-specific antigen levels that had reached undetectable levels at the time of the patient's death from acute sepsis and leukemic relapse. Autopsy showed minimal evidence of prostate cancer, localized to the prostate.

Identification of sensitive and specific biomarkers for early detection and prognosis of prostate cancer is essential for timely and appropriate treatment of the disease in individual patients. We identified an RNA transcript with sequence homology to TRPM8 (melastatin-related transient receptor potential member 8) that was overexpressed in tumor vs. patient-matched non-tumor prostate tissues by RT-PCR differential display (DD). Semi-quantitative RT-PCR analysis revealed that TRPM8 levels were higher in tumor than in non-tumor tissue from 31 of 40 (>75%) patients examined. Overexpression of TRPM8 was independent of changes in androgen receptor (AR) mRNA levels in tumor tissue. However, in studies with established cell lines, TRPM8 expression was detectable only in AR-positive, but not in AR-negative cells, and it was suppressed by steroid deprivation or anti-androgen bicalutamide (Casodex) treatment, suggesting the requirement of AR activity for TRPM8 expression in prostate cancer cells. TRPM8 mRNA was also detected in body fluids of men. Most importantly, its levels were significantly higher (p<0.001, n=18) in urine and blood of patients with metastatic disease than in those of healthy men. However, there was no significant difference (p>0.05, n=10) in its levels between prostate cancer patients with localized disease and healthy men. Together, these studies demonstrate that TRPM8 expression is androgen regulated in prostate cancer cells and that, while tissue TRPM8 mRNA levels can be used for detection of prostate cancer, urine and blood TRPM8 mRNA levels may prove to be useful for distinguishing metastatic disease from clinically localized prostate cancer at the time of diagnosis.

Although the pretreatment testosterone level was shown to be an important prognostic factor in previous studies, using other modes of androgen ablation (reducing testosterone to below castrate levels), the current study suggest it may not be a helpful factor if the therapy used is antiandrogens as monotherapy. This may relate to the different mode of action of antiandrogens, which do not reduce serum testosterone levels.

In both treatment groups, a statistically significant trend was noted for CgA levels to increase from baseline to 24 months. This trend was lower in the bicalutamide group (slope = 0.60, 95% confidence interval 0.28 to 0.92; P = 0.004) than in the castration group (slope = 0.29, 95% confidence interval 0.08 to 0.50; P = 0.01).

The structural modification and molecular docking-based screening approaches on thiazole-based isoindolinediones were imposed to find the novel 2-(4-phenylthiazol-2-yl) isoindoline-1,3-dione derivatives. The best fit compounds (6a-n) were synthesized and evaluated their antiproliferative activities on the prostate cancer cell lines (PC-3 & LNCaP). Among them, the compound, 6m exhibited good activity, particularly on LNCaP (IC50=5.96±1.6μM), moderately active against PC-3 cell lines as compared to bicalutamide. The compound, 6m decreased the androgen-mediated transcription of ARE-mRNA in PSA, TMPRSS2, c-myc and cyclin D1 than R-bicalutamide. The compounds, 6e and 6f were reconfirmed through single crystal XRD analysis. The ADME profiling of the test compounds was evaluated to find the drug-likeness and pharmacokinetic parameters. These findings may provide vital information for the development of anti-prostate cancer agents.

Prostate cancer is one of the four most common cancers in the United States, affecting one of six men. Increased serum levels of androgens and IGF-I are associated with an augmented risk of prostate cancer. Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and testosterone (T) stimulate prostate cancer cell growth, development, and function, whereas the effects of DHT and T in prostate stromal cells, and of dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) in prostate cancer or stromal cells, are uncertain. We investigated the actions of DHT, T, DHEA, and estradiol (E2) on insulin-like growth factor (IGF)-I, IGF-II, IGF-I receptor (R), IGF-binding protein (IGFBP)-2, IGFBP-3, and IGFBP-5 in primary cultures of human prostatic stromal cells by assessing cell proliferation, mRNA expression, and protein secretion by MTT growth assay, quantitative real-time PCR, and ELISA, respectively. DHT and T each increased IGF-I (7-fold) and decreased IGFBP-3 (2-fold) mRNA expression and protein secretion in a dose- and time-dependent manner and increased IGFBP-2 (2-fold) mRNA in a dose- and time-dependent manner. DHEA and E2 did not significantly alter these measures. Flutamide abolished the DHT-modulated increases in IGF-I and IGFBP-2, suggesting that the influences of DHT and T on these measures were androgen receptor mediated. None of the four steroids significantly affected IGF-IR, IGF-II, or IGFBP-5 mRNA levels or stromal cell proliferation. The effects of DHT on IGF-I, IGFBP-2, and IGFBP-3 were more pronounced in stromal cultures that did not express desmin. These data suggest that DHT and T promote prostate growth partly via modulation of the stromal cell IGF axis, with potential paracrine effects on prostate epithelial cells.

This single center, prospective study included 38 prostate cancer patients surgically or medically castrated who had PSA increases above their nadir after previous antiandrogen manipulation and in absence of bone metastases. Patients were given daily dose of bicalutamide 150 mg. Clinical evaluations and serum PSA testing were performed every 3 months. Response was defined according to PSA decline from baseline as if ≥ 50% or ≥ 85%. The duration of response was the time from entering into study until PSA increased ≥ 25% or ≥ 2 ng/ml from the nadir. Bone scintigraphy was repeated at PSA increase or at symptom appearance.

The study population came from the 2 data sets and included 3219 men who were treated for mCRPC. Bone and lymph nodes were the predominant metastatic sites. Bicalutamide was the most common secondary hormonal therapy, and docetaxel was the most common chemotherapy used for these patients. Overall, 73.4% of the patients in data set 1 received concomitant corticosteroids, as did 71.6% of patients in population 2 during the entire period from the index date to the end of eligibility date. In addition, 62.8% and 60.4% of patients, respectively, received concomitant corticosteroids during the secondary hormonal therapy period, and 93.8% and 95.1% of patients, respectively, received concomitant corticosteroids during the chemotherapy period. Similar patterns of corticosteroid use were observed across geographic areas of the United States.

Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNA) have been associated with the development of cancer. However, the interplay between lncRNAs and androgen receptor (AR) signaling in prostate cancer is still unclear. Here, we identified lncRNAs induced by androgen in AR-positive prostate cancer cells, where induction was abolished by AR knockdown as well as an anti-androgen, bicalutamide. By combining these data, we identified an androgen-regulated lncRNA, suppressor of cytokine signaling 2-antisense transcript 1 (SOCS2-AS1), the expression of which was higher in castration-resistant prostate cancer model cells, i.e long-term androgen-deprived (LTAD) cells, than in parental androgen-dependent LNCaP cells. SOCS2-AS1 promoted castration-resistant and androgen-dependent cell growth. We found that SOCS2-AS1 knockdown up-regulated genes related to the apoptosis pathway, including tumor necrosis factor superfamily 10 (TNFSF10), and sensitized prostate cancer cells to docetaxel treatment. Moreover, we also demonstrated that SOCS2-AS1 promotes androgen signaling by modulating the epigenetic control for AR target genes including TNFSF10 These findings suggest that SOCS2-AS1 plays an important role in the development of castration-resistant prostate cancer by repressing apoptosis.

Treatment choices for metastatic prostate cancer are complex and can involve men balancing survival versus quality of life. The present study aims to elicit patient preferences with respect to the attributes of treatments for metastatic prostate cancer through a discrete choice experiment (DCE) questionnaire. Men with recently diagnosed localized prostate cancer were asked to envisage that they had metastatic disease when completing a survey. As expected, men with prostate cancer placed considerable importance on gains in survival; however, avoiding side effects of treatment was also clearly important. Survival gains should be considered alongside side effects when discussing treatment options in metastatic disease.

The androgen receptor (AR) plays a central role in the oncogenesis of different tumors, as is the case in prostate cancer. In triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) a gene expression classification has described different subgroups including a luminal androgen subtype. The AR can be controlled by several mechanisms like the activation of membrane tyrosine kinases and downstream signaling pathways. However little is known in TNBC about how the AR is modulated by these mechanisms and the potential therapeutic strategists to inhibit its expression.

Anti-androgen therapy is the leading treatment for advanced prostate cancer and is commonly used for neoadjuvant or adjuvant treatment. Bicalutamide is a non-steroidal anti-androgen, used during the initiation of androgen deprivation therapy along with a luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone agonist to reduce the symptoms of tumor-related flares in patients with advanced prostate cancer. As side effects, bicalutamide can cause fatigue, gynecomastia, and decreased libido through competitive androgen receptor blockade. Additionally, although not as common, drug-induced liver injury has also been reported. Herein, we report a case of hepatotoxicity secondary to bicalutamide use. Typically, bicalutamide-induced hepatotoxicity develops after a few days; however, in this case, hepatic injury occurred 5 mo after treatment initiation. Based on this rare case of delayed liver injury, we recommend careful monitoring of liver function throughout bicalutamide treatment for prostate cancer.

Interleukin-6 (IL-6) levels are frequently elevated in sera of patients with metastatic prostate cancer. IL-6 receptors are expressed in prostate cancer cell lines, as well as in benign prostate hyperplasia and prostate cancer tissue specimens. The androgen receptor (AR) is a key transcription factor that is present in all stages of prostate carcinoma, even in therapy-refractory tumors. In an attempt buy casodex online to investigate possible cross-talk between IL-6 and androgen signal transduction cascades, we tested the effects of this cytokine on AR transcriptional activity. The regulation of AR activity by IL-6 was studied in DU-145 cells, which were cotransfected with the androgen-responsive reporter plasmid ARE2TATACAT and the AR expression vector pSG5AR. We show that IL-6 up-regulates AR activity in a ligand-independent manner, as well as synergistically, with very low doses of the synthetic androgen methyltrienolone (5-10 pM). Therefore, AR activation by IL-6 may be operative in prostate cancer patients who have decreased androgen levels because of androgen ablation therapy. The maximal induction of reporter gene activity by IL-6 alone (50 ng/ml) was 67% of that stimulated by 1 nM of methyltrienolone. The nonsteroidal antiandrogen bicalutamide (Casodex) nearly completely inhibited AR activation by IL-6. IL-6 effects on AR activity were also abolished or greatly reduced by inhibitors of protein kinase A and C and mitogen-activated protein kinase pathways. In concordance with the results obtained in DU-145 cells, IL-6 induced AR-regulated prostate-specific antigen mRNA and protein in LNCaP cells. Stimulation of prostate-specific antigen protein secretion by IL-6 was antagonized by bicalutamide and inhibitors of protein kinase A and mitogen-activated protein kinase signaling pathways. Taken together, our data show for the first time that IL-6 is a nonsteroidal activator of the AR and that this activation is implicated in the regulation of prostate-specific proteins. Keeping in mind that IL-6, its receptor, and the AR are expressed in prostate cancers, cross-talk between IL-6 and AR signaling pathways may have clinical significance.

Since the year 2000, tremendous progress has been made in the understanding of castration-resistant prostate cancer (crpc), a disease state now recognized to retain androgen receptor (ar)-dependency in most cases. That understanding led to the rational design of novel therapeutic agents targeting hormonal pathways in metastatic crpc. Two new drugs-the CYP17 inhibitor abiraterone acetate and the potent ar antagonist enzalutamide-were recently shown to prolong overall survival after chemotherapy treatment in patients with metastatic disease, with the former agent also demonstrating impressive activity in the pre-chemotherapy setting. Other new drugs targeting the ar-as well as drugs targeting heat shock proteins that protect cytoplasmic ar from degradation-are currently undergoing clinical development.This review briefly describes the molecular mechanisms underlying castration resistance and hormonal dependence in prostate tumours and summarizes the current ongoing and completed clinical trials that are targeting hormonal pathways in metastatic crpc. Potential mechanisms of buy casodex online resistance to these novel hormonal agents are reviewed. Finally, future research directions, including questions about drug sequencing and combination, are discussed.

Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) lacks estrogen receptor (ER), progesterone receptor (PR) and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER-2) expression and thus cannot benefit from conventional hormonal or anti-HER2 targeted therapies. Anti-androgen therapy has shown a certain effect on androgen receptor (AR) positive TNBC. The emerging researches have proved that poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) inhibitor is effective in BRCA1-deficient breast cancers. We demonstrated that combination of AR antagonist (bicalutamide) and PARP inhibitor (ABT-888) could inhibit cell viability and induce cell apoptosis significantly whatever in vitro or in vivo setting in AR-positive TNBC. Previous studies have proved that both BRCA1 and PARP1 have close connections with AR in prostate cancer. We explored the correlation among AR, PARP1 and BRCA1 in TNBC for the first time. After buy casodex online BRCA1 overexpression, the expression of AR and PARP1 were decreased in mRNA and protein levels. Additionally, AR positively regulated PARP1 while PARP1 also up-regulated AR expression in vitro. We also confirmed BRCA1 expression was negatively correlated with AR and PARP1 in TNBC patients using a tissue microarray with TNBC patient samples. These results suggest that the combination of bicalutamide and PARP inhibitor may be a potential strategy for TNBC patients and merits further evaluation.

ZD1839 at its maximum tolerated dose (150 mg/kg) inhibited the growth of androgen-dependent CWR22 by 54%, and the growth of two variants with different degrees of androgen independence and androgen receptor gene expression (CWR22LD1 and CWR22RV1) by 76%. The effects of ZD1839 were similar to those recorded for phosphorylation of EGFR as determined by Western blotting. Coadministration of ZD1839 at its maximum tolerated dose markedly increased the antiproliferative action of the antiandrogen bicalutamide against CWR22LD1. In fact, combining ZD1839 with a suboptimal dose of bicalutamide was more effective than a higher dose of bicalutamide alone. Coadministration of ZD1839, which required a 2-3-fold attenuation of dose to avoid toxicity, also markedly increased the therapeutic activity of carboplatin and paclitaxel against CWR22RV1, bringing about regression to a degree not seen with either agent alone. Tumor-free mice buy casodex online were seen only with the combination of ZD1839 and paclitaxel.

Androgen deprivation therapy is the standard treatment for prostate cancer. However, tumors often progress towards a more aggressive phenotype despite treatment. Prostate tissue has a high zinc concentration, which may correlate with prostate cancer progression. Therefore, we investigated the effect of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) on the gene expression of metallothioneins (MTs) and zinc transporters in prostate cancer with quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR). The MT3 gene expression in LNCaP cells was suppressed by DHT in a dose-dependent manner. However, it increased in a culture medium containing buy casodex online androgen-deficient charcoal-stripped fetal bovine serum (FBS). Bicalutamide, an androgen receptor antagonist, increased the gene expression of MT3 and partially reversed the suppression of MT3 gene expression induced by DHT. In PC-3 cells lacking androgen receptors, DHT and bicalutamide exerted no effect on MT3 gene expression. The reporter gene assay with a luciferase reporter plasmid containing the 5'-flanking region of MT3 demonstrated a decrease in luciferase activity caused by DHT that was reversed by bicalutamide. These results suggest that MT3 gene expression is downregulated by androgen.

These findings suggest that inhibition of the PI3K pathway activates AR signaling. Despite the increase in AR signaling which has proliferative effects, the result of PI3K pathway inhibition is antiproliferative. These findings suggest that the PI3K pathway is dominant over AR signaling in prostate cancer cells which should be considered in developing novel therapeutic strategies for prostate cancer. buy casodex online

Aromatase inhibitors (AI) are being evaluated as long-term adjuvant therapies and chemopreventives in breast cancer. However, there are concerns about bone mineral density loss in an estrogen-free environment. Unlike nonsteroidal AIs, the steroidal AI exemestane may exert beneficial effects on bone through its primary metabolite 17-hydroexemestane. We investigated 17-hydroexemestane and observed it bound estrogen receptor alpha (ERalpha) very weakly and androgen receptor (AR) strongly. Next, we evaluated 17-hydroexemestane in MCF-7 and T47D breast Propecia Usa Buy cancer cells and attributed dependency of its effects on ER or AR using the antiestrogen fulvestrant or the antiandrogen bicalutamide. 17-Hydroexemestane induced proliferation, stimulated cell cycle progression and regulated transcription at high sub-micromolar and micromolar concentrations through ER in both cell lines, but through AR at low nanomolar concentrations selectively in T47D cells. Responses of each cell type to high and low concentrations of the non-aromatizable synthetic androgen R1881 paralleled those of 17-hydroexemestane. 17-Hydroexemestane down-regulated ERalpha protein levels at high concentrations in a cell type-specific manner similarly as 17beta-estradiol, and increased AR protein accumulation at low concentrations in both cell types similarly as R1881. Computer docking indicated that the 17beta-OH group of 17-hydroexemestane relative to the 17-keto group of exemestane contributed significantly more intermolecular interaction energy toward binding AR than ERalpha. Molecular modeling also indicated that 17-hydroexemestane interacted with ERalpha and AR through selective recognition motifs employed by 17beta-estradiol and R1881, respectively. We conclude that 17-hydroexemestane exerts biological effects as an androgen. These results may have important implications for long-term maintenance of patients with AIs.

casodex reviews 2017-05-31

Prostate cancer accounted for over 41,000 deaths in the United States in 1996. Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) screening is capable of detecting prostate cancer and appears to detect cancers that are both clinically significant as well as organ-confined, and therefore potentially curable. The positive predictive value of PSA value has been increased by the use of the free-to-total PSA ratio. The early detection of a large number of nonpalpable tumors has mandated the development of new risk assessment schemas, which include nomograms and equations in which Gleason score, PSA, and clinical stage play a prominent role. Definitive answers to the question of watchful waiting versus intervention await conclusion of the prostate cancer intervention-versus-observation trial. For both radical prostatectomy and radiation therapy, one means of potentially reducing the risk of relapse is the use of androgen deprivation. Neoadjuvant androgen deprivation prior to surgery results in a lower incidence of positive surgical margins, but impact on survival is unknown. By contrast, the use of concurrent androgen deprivation appears to be associated with enhanced survival in patients treated with definitive radiotherapy. For good risk tumors, modem brachytherapy results in freedom from biochemical relapse rates similar to those observed with surgery and external Motrin Y Alcohol beam radiation therapy. The best therapy for patients with positive margins or serologic progression, including radiation therapy, remains to be identified. The widespread availability of PSA testing has led to an empirically driven redefinition of advanced disease and includes patients with earlier stage disease in which primary treatment has failed. In these patients, debate remains as to whether combined androgen deprivation is superior to monotherapy. A comparison of flutamide with bicalutamide awaits maturation of survival data. The utility of antiandrogen withdrawal in patients with progressive disease despite androgen deprivation has been confirmed. Thereafter, second-line hormonal maneuvers may be appropriate. In patients with truly hormone refractory prostate cancer, a variety of nonhormonal agents, including estramustine-based therapy, suramin, mitoxantrone, and doxorubicin-based regimens have demonstrated activity and remain as options.

Before the initiation of bicalutamide and dutasteride, the mean prostate volume was 54.3 cm3 by planimetric summation and 49.7 cm3 by ellipsoid volume calculation. After a 3-month course of combination medical therapy, the average prostate volume was 36.1 cm3 (33.6% reduction) and 32.5 cm3 (34.6% reduction) using the volumetric and ellipsoid volume determinations, respectively. Bicalutamide and dutasteride resulted in a 39.8% reduction in transition zone volume (20.8 cm3 versus 12.4 cm3). The prostate gland and transition zone dimensions (width, height, and length) decreased about 11.4% to 19.9%.

We studied the three-dimensional quantitative structure-activity relationships (3D QSAR) of 70 structurally and functionally diverse androgen receptor (AR) binding compounds using the comparative molecular similarity indices analysis (CoMSIA) method. The compound set contained 67 nonsteroidal analogues of flutamide, nilutamide, and bicalutamide whose binding mode to AR was unknown. Docking was used to identify the preferred binding modes for the nonsteroidal compounds within the AR ligand-binding pocket (LBP) and to generate the ligand alignment for the 3D QSAR analysis. The alignment produced a statistically significant and predictive model, validated by random group cross-validation and external test sets (q(2)(LOO) = 0.656, SDEP = 0.576, r(2) = 0.911, SEE = 0.293; q(2)(10) = 0.612, q(2)(5) = 0.571; pred-r(2) = 0.800). Additional model validation comes from the CoMSIA maps that were interpreted with respect to the LBP structure. The model takes into account and links the AR LBP structure, docked ligand structures, and the experimental binding activities. The results provide valuable information on intermolecular interactions between nonsteroidal ligands and the AR LBP.

The androgen receptor (AR) was localized immunohistochemically after different hormonal treatments in the ventral prostate, coagulating gland, seminal vesicle and epididymis of the adult rat. In the untreated controls AR-immunoreactivity was confined to the cell nuclei. One week after castration or treatment with the gonadotropin-releasing hormone antagonist Cetrorelix (150 micrograms/animal per day) a cytoplasmic staining occurred in the epithelial cells of the ventral prostate and in part of the coagulating gland and seminal vesicle. In contrast, the AR remained exclusively in the nuclei in the epididymal epithelium and the glandular smooth muscle layer even after 2 weeks of androgen depletion. Bolus injections of either dihydrotestosterone (1 mg/kg), the antiandrogen flutamide (40 mg/kg), or the novel non-steroidal antiandrogen casodex (40 mg/kg) to androgen-depleted animals eliminated cytoplasmic AR-immunoreactivity and restored the nuclear staining pattern in the ventral prostate. A sustained 2-week treatment with the antiandrogens resulted in a loss of weight in all organs but did not alter the distribution of AR-immunoreactivity. The data show an apparent cytoplasmic/nuclear ligand-dependent translocation of the AR in the ventral prostate, coagulating gland and seminal vesicle but not in the epididymis of the adult rat.

Clinical studies published in the last decade have shown the possible improvement in prognosis of patients with prostatic carcinoma undergoing radiation therapy with dose escalation or in combination with hormone therapy. However, in studies on hormone therapy, moderate doses of radiation therapy have been used, whereas in studies with high-dose radiotherapy, hormone therapy usually was not administered. Therefore, it is not clear whether the concomitant use of high doses and prolonged hormone therapy could determine an additional beneficial effect. The aim of the present study was therefore to evaluate the relative prognostic role of different dose levels (< 70 versus > or = 70 Gy) of external beam radiotherapy and of different hormone therapies (neoadjuvant only versus neoadjuvant + adjuvant).

Antihormonal and chemotherapy are standard treatments for nonorgan-confined prostate cancer. The effectivity of these therapies is limited and the development of alternative approaches is necessary. In the present study, we report on the use of the multikinase inhibitor sorafenib in a panel of prostate cancer cell lines and their derivatives which mimic endocrine and chemotherapy resistance. (3)H-thymidine incorporation assays revealed that sorafenib causes a dose-dependent inhibition of proliferation of all cell lines associated with downregulation of cyclin-dependent kinase 2 and cyclin D1 expression. Apoptosis was induced at 2  μM of sorafenib in androgen-sensitive cells, whereas a higher dose of the drug was needed in castration-resistant cell lines. Sorafenib stimulated apoptosis in prostate cancer cell lines through downregulation of myeloid cell leukemia-1 (MCL-1) expression and Akt phosphorylation. Although concentrations of sorafenib required for the antitumor effect in therapy-resistant sublines were higher than those needed in parental cells, the drug showed efficacy in cells which became resistant to bicalutamide and docetaxel respectively. Most interestingly, we show that sorafenib has an inhibitory effect on androgen receptor (AR) and prostate-specific antigen expression. In cells in which AR expression was downregulated by short interfering RNA, the treatment with sorafenib increased apoptosis in an additive manner. In summary, the results of the present study indicate that there is a potential to use sorafenib in prostate cancers as an adjuvant therapy option to current androgen ablation treatments, but also in progressed prostate cancers that become unresponsive to standard therapies.

Nonsteroidal antiandrogen casodex and steroidal antiandrogen epitestosterone were administered to intact male mice, and their effect on femoral bones and circulating calcium, phosphate, testosterone, and LH were compared with controls and castrated animals. Pure antiandrogen casodex in a dose used in humans for treatment of prostate cancer decreased the weight of seminal vesicles, organ which is highly sensitive to the androgenic effect, increased insignificantly the concentration of LH and of testosterone, but did not have any effect on bone density or mineral content of bone. Epitestosterone, which not only inhibits the binding of androgens to their receptors but also inhibits the formation of dihydrotestosterone from testosterone, and is reported to interfere with aromatization of testosterone to estrogens, decreased the bone density, ash weight, and calcium and phosphate content of femoral bone tissue significantly, although not to values as low as those seen in castrated animals.

In a cohort of 192 women with ER + breast cancers, a high ratio of AR:ER (≥2.0) indicated an over four fold increased risk for failure while on tamoxifen (HR = 4.43). The AR:ER ratio had an independent effect on risk for failure above ER % staining alone. AR:ER ratio is also an independent predictor of disease-free survival (HR = 4.04, 95% CI: 1.68, 9.69; p = 0.002) and disease specific survival (HR = 2.75, 95% CI: 1.11, 6.86; p = 0.03). Both enzalutamide and bicalutamide inhibited 5-alpha-dihydrotestosterone (DHT)-mediated proliferation of breast cancer lines in vitro; however, enzalutamide uniquely inhibited estradiol (E2)-mediated proliferation of ER+/AR + breast cancer cells. In MCF7 xenografts (ER+/AR+) enzalutamide inhibited E2-driven tumor growth as effectively as tamoxifen by decreasing proliferation. Enzalutamide also inhibited DHT- driven tumor growth in both ER positive (MCF7) and negative (MDA-MB-453) xenografts, but did so by increasing apoptosis.

We report that the pure anti-androgen Casodex inhibits the growth of HT1080 cell xenografts in immune-depressed mice, revealing a novel role of AR in fibrosarcoma progression. In HT1080 cultured cells EGF, but not androgens, robustly increases DNA synthesis. Casodex abolishes the EGF mitogenic effect, implying a crosstalk between EGFR and AR. The mechanism underlying this crosstalk has been analyzed using an AR-derived small peptide, S1, which prevents AR/Src tyrosine kinase association and androgen-dependent Src activation. Present findings show that in HT1080 cells EGF induces AR/Src Association, and the S1 peptide abolishes both the assembly of this complex and Src activation. The S1 peptide inhibits EGF-stimulated DNA synthesis, cell matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) secretion and invasiveness of HT1080 cells. Both Casodex and S1 peptide also prevent DNA synthesis and migration triggered by EGF in various human cancer-derived cells (prostate, breast, colon and pancreas) that express AR.

The 5-year cancer-specific survival for the bicalutamide- and chlormadinone-treated groups were 91.7% and 86.6%, respectively, with no significant difference (p=0.39). Five-year overall survival was significantly (p=0.029) better in the bicalutamide-treated group. Moreover, M1 patients in the chlormadinone group had significantly lower cancer-specific and overall survival compared to those in the bicalutamide-treated group. However, in the case of M0 patients, no significant difference in cancer-specific nor in overall survival was observed.

Mechanisms of prostate cancer (CaP) recurrence during a combined androgen blockade (CAB) are poorly understood. Previously, the role of androgen receptor (AR) gene mutations underlying the CAB therapy relapse has been raised. To investigate the hypothesis that AR gene aberrations are involved in CAB relapse, 11 locally recurrent CaP samples from patients treated with orchiectomy and bicalutamide were analyzed for copy number changes and DNA sequence alterations of the AR gene by fluorescence in situ hybridization and single-strand conformation polymorphism, respectively. Altogether, base changes were detected in four tumors (36%). Three of them were missense mutations (G166S, W741C, M749I) and two were silent polymorphisms. Interestingly, none of the tumors had AR amplification. These data suggest that different AR variants are developed and selected for during various types of hormonal treatments, and also, that CAB achieved by orchiectomy and bicalutamide does not act as a selective force for AR amplification.

Prostate tissue expresses 2 estrogen receptor (ER) isoforms, ER-α and ER-β, and estrogen-based therapies have shown activity in preclinical studies. Raloxifene, a selective ER modulator, has inhibited the growth of prostate cancer xenograft models and was tested in a phase II trial of castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC), with some patients achieving stable disease. However, no studies have examined the safety of the combination of bicalutamide plus raloxifene for CRPC. Therefore, we investigated the safety of treatment with bicalutamide plus raloxifene in patients with CRPC in an initial study.
