  • BACKGROUND: Phytotherapy is a third approach for treating lower urinary tract symptoms associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: The effect of an ethanolic extract of S. repens (10-1000 microg/ml) was tested in hormone-sensitive LNCaP, MCF-7 and hormone-insensitive DU 145, MDA MB231 prostate, breast carcinoma cell lines, renal Caki-1, urinary bladder J82, colon HCT 116 and lung A 549 cancer cells.
  • RESULTS: The S. repens extract induced a dose-dependent antiproliferative effect on all human malignant cells tested, with GI50 values between 107 and 327 pmicro/ml.
  • CONCLUSION: This study showed that the antiproliferative effect exerted by the ethanolic extract of S. repens is at least triggered by induction of apoptosis.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Nephrogenic adenoma (NA) is a rare benign lesion of the urinary tract.
  • Because all the previous studies have used an avidin-biotin (AB) detection procedure, and because cells with tubular renal differentiation are likely to contain a high level of endogenous biotin, we investigated in NA the expression of several markers including AMACR, using both AB and biotin-free detection systems.
  • We assessed the expression of p63, cytokeratins 7 and 20, CD10 (proximal tubule marker), MUC1 (distal tubule marker), PAX2, and AMACR on 14 NAs (from 6 patients) grouped on a tissue microarray.
  • The tissue microarray also included renal, urothelial, and prostate tissues.
  • Detection with the AB procedure leads to nonspecific staining in kidney samples and NA.
  • These findings provide supporting evidence that NA has the differentiation of distal renal tubules, and strongly suggest that AMACR, when detected with a biotin-free procedure, can be used as a reliable marker for distinguishing NA from prostate cancer.

  • Nephrogenic adenoma is a benign urothelial neoformation rare in children.
  • It can be present in the entire urinary tract, being more common in the bladder and very infrequent in urethra.
  • These metaplasic changes seem to be due to irritative stimulus to the epithelium, including lithiasis, previous surgery, permanent or repeated catheterization, infective diseases and chemotherapy and or radiotherapy.
  • The diagnosis is established after biopsy and in most of the cases the treatment of choice consists of transurethral resection of the lesion.
  • The patient was managed conservatively and oral antibiotic therapy was administered being the patient asymptomatic and free of recurrence during the follow up.

  • [Title] Glutathione S-transferase gene variants and risk of benign prostate hyperplasia in a North Indian population.
  • Glutagthione S-transferase (GST) is over-expressed in benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH) patients, but the significance of GST polymorphisms for susceptibility to diseases of the prostate is unclear.
  • The objectives of this study were to determine relationships between polymorphisms in the GSTM1, T1 and P1 genes with risk of symptomatic BPH and influence on standard therapy.
  • A gene polymorphism association study conducted with 160 symptomatic BPH patients with BPE (benign prostatic enlargement) and LUTS (lower urinary tract symptoms) and 200 age-matched controls.
  • Patients were treated with α-adrenergic blockers and 5α-reductase inhibitors for 6 months and subdivided based on their significant improvement in parameters between pre and post 6 month combined therapy to study associations with the GST polymorphisms.
  • Thus the GSTM1 deletion polymorphism is significantly associated with increased risk of symptomatic BPH, but none of the genes appeared to influence response to standard BPH therapy.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • The occurrence of neuroendocrine (NE) tumors in sites other than the lung and skin has not been well characterized in the setting of concurrent HIV infection.
  • METHODS: HIV-positive patients with biopsy-confirmed NE tumors localized to the gastrointestinal tract were identified based on the personal archives of the authors.
  • A retrospective chart review was performed, and data regarding demographics, HIV status, presenting symptoms and signs, diagnostic work-up, therapeutic interventions, and outcome were extracted.
  • RESULTS: We identified 4 adult patients, mean age 42 years (range: 37-47) infected with HIV, who developed NE tumors originating in their gastrointestinal tact.
  • A specialized diagnostic work-up was required, including serum chromogranin and urinary 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid levels, colonoscopy, radioactive isotope scans, and the demonstration of NE differentiation in procured pathologic material.
  • The spectrum of tumors ranged from benign (typical carcinoid) to highly aggressive neoplasms (NE carcinoma).
  • Treatment with octreotide, surgical resection, or systemic chemotherapy provided effective symptomatic relief and was associated with a favorable outcome, despite metastases in 2 patients.
  • CONCLUSIONS: These cases serve to broaden the spectrum of neoplasms that may be encountered in the current HIV era, and illustrate the difficulty in establishing the diagnosis of NE tumors in the context of HIV infection.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • In humans, two 5alpha-reductase isoenyzmes are expressed: type I and type II.
  • Type II is found primarily in prostate tissue.
  • Saw palmetto extract (SPE) has been widely used for the treatment of lower urinary tract symptoms secondary to benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).
  • The mechanisms of the pharmacological effects of SPE include the inhibition of 5alpha-reductase, among other actions.
  • METHODS: The aim of the present study was to determine the in vitro potency of a novel saw palmetto ethanol extract (SPET-085), an inhibitor of the 5alpha-reductase isoenzyme type II, in a cell-free test system.
  • RESULTS: SPET-085 concentration-dependently inhibited 5alpha-reductase type II in vitro (IC(50)=2.88+/-0.45 microg/mL).
  • The approved 5alpha-reductase inhibitor, finasteride, tested as positive control, led to 61% inhibition of 5alpha-reductase type II.
  • This study confirmed that SPET-085 has prostate health-promoting bioactivity that also corresponds favorably to that reported for the established prescription drug standard of therapy, finasteride.

  • [Title] Immunohistochemical distribution of cyclic GMP-dependent protein kinase-1 in human prostate tissue.
  • OBJECTIVES: Phosphodiesterase 5 (PDE5) inhibitors improve smooth muscle relaxation and therefore are considered for pharmacotherapy of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS).
  • METHODS: Cryostat sections of tissue segments excised from the transition zone of human prostates from 11 patients (aged 54-68 yr) were incubated with primary antibodies directed against smooth muscle alpha-actin, cGMP, cGKI, cGKIalpha, and cGKIbeta.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our results confirm the presence of cGKI isoforms alpha and beta in the transition zone of human prostate tissue.
  • In addition, the colocalization of alpha-actin, cGMP, and cGKI isoforms provides further evidence for a significant role of the nitric oxide/cGMP pathway in the regulation of smooth muscle contractility in human prostate tissue and therefore could provide additional targets for pharmacotherapy of BPH and LUTS.

  • Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a frequent cause of lower urinary symptoms, with a prevalence of 50% by the sixth decade of life.
  • Hyperplasia of stromal and epithelial prostatic elements that surround the urethra cause lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS), urinary tract infection, and acute urinary retention.
  • Medical treatments of symptomatic BPH include;.
  • Clinical trials have shown that alpha1-adrenergic antagonists decrease LUTS and increase urinary flow rates in men with symptomatic BPH, but do not reduce the long-term risk of urinary retention or need for surgical intervention.
  • Inhibitors of 5alpha-reductase decrease production of dihydrotestosterone within the prostate resulting in decreased prostate volumes, increased peak urinary flow rates, improvement of symptoms, and decreased risk of acute urinary retention and need for surgical intervention.
  • The combination of a 5alpha-reductase inhibitor and a alpha1-adrenergic antagonist reduces the clinical progression of BPH over either class of drug alone.

  • [Title] Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumors of the genitourinary tract--single entity or continuum?
  • PURPOSE: Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor of the genitourinary tract is a spindled soft tissue lesion that is often mistaken for sarcoma.
  • The relationship between inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor and other morphologically similar entities has been a long-standing source of controversy.
  • We investigated whether inflammatory myofibroblastic tumors in adults and children are the same entity, and whether inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor is part of a biological spectrum that includes benign and malignant entities at opposite ends.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor of the genitourinary tract should be considered a neoplasm of uncertain malignant potential, and routine surveillance and close clinical followup are recommended.
  • Aggressive therapy (radical cystectomy, radiation or chemotherapy) is unwarranted given the indolent and often benign clinical course for the majority of cases.
  • To understand the diagnostic and prognostic implications future emphasis should be placed on the link between genetic abnormalities, and clinical course, therapeutic response and ultimate outcome.

  • [Title] Differences in lower urinary tract symptoms, treatment and mortality among African-American and white elderly men.
  • BACKGROUND: There are limited population-based studies of benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH) and lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) in men, and most studies examined to date have been restricted to predominately white populations.
  • This study examines treatment and all-cause mortality among a cohort of African-American and white men aged > or =65 with BPH/LUTS symptoms over time.
  • RESULTS: From 1994-1998, there were no significant racial differences in treatment by catheter insertion, prostate surgery or drug therapy for BPH/LUTS.
  • However, overall use of the 3 treatments increased from 1994-1998, with drug therapy showing the largest increase.
  • Men with comorbid conditions were less likely to receive drug therapy, whereas those with poor self-reported health or cancer were more likely to receive prostate surgery.
  • Men who received drug therapy treatment or had regular rectal exams showed decreased risk of mortality.
  • Data also demon-strate the need for studies that focus on treatment modalities as well as important correlates of LUTS.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: We reviewed the literature on the mechanisms of action and clinical efficacy of botulinum neurotoxin treatment of the prostate.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Botulinum toxin has demonstrated exciting and promising preliminary results for male lower urinary tract symptoms.
  • Translational research suggests novel mechanism of action of botulinum toxin in the prostate for benign prostatic hyperplasia and chronic nonbacterial prostatitis.
  • It may even be considered as adjuvant treatment for prostate cancer.
  • The use of botulinum neurotoxin in the prostate is currently Food and Drug Administration off label and in support of evidence based medicine practices caution should be applied until larger, randomized clinical studies are completed.
