False positives on thousands of prostate cancer tests

prostate cancer news

ABC News  is reporting that thousands of men in Pennsylvania, and possibly the world over,  may have received erroneous PSA test results showing higher than actual levels–and possibly leading to unnecessary biopsies.  PSA, or prostate specific antigen levels, are a benchmark physicians use to gauge the likelihood of prostate cancer in their patients.  According to the report,  the makers of the test issued a global recall in June, citing a 20-23% “positive bias”.  The specific product recalled is the Immulite PSA test.

Prostate Cancer News: Are exosomes the future of prostate cancer diagnosis?

prostate cancer test

A new in vitro diagnostic test for prostate cancer may be on the way to replacing the traditional PSA test and perhaps some biopsy procedures.  The test is known as EXO106, which focuses on identifying the novel 4 gene prostate cancer signature.  Exosomes are substances within human cells carrying nucleic acids which are unique to specific diseases. By testing blood or urine,  it can be determined if an exosome related to a specific disease is present.  In addition, EXO106 may also be able to predict the severity of prostate cancer and how well the prostate cancer is responding to treatment.

Experts continue to weigh in on prostate cancer and fish oil study

Friday, July 19th, 2013


For more than a week, we’ve been watching the fallout from the study that supposedly linked fish oil to prostate cancer, which took the media and the medical community by storm.  Over the last several days, experts have been weighing in on this controversial topic. It turns out that, while the this single study may have shown higher Omega-3 levels among those with prostate tumors, there’s no evidence to suggest that the fish oil actually caused the prostate tumors.  Here’s a great article we found that provides a very clear explanation of the fish oil prostate cancer study, and why you probably shouldn’t change your supplement regimen based on its results.

Study suggests caution for androgen deprivation therapy for prostate cancer

Thursday, July 18th, 2013


A new study may prompt doctors to be more cautious about prescribing androgen deprivation therapy for prostate cancer, or at least prostate cancer that doesn’t warrant aggressive treatment.  The study, performed by researchers at McGill University in Montreal, suggests that the hormone therapy for prostate cancer may be linked to kidney problems.  While androgen deprivation was once used only for life threatening prostate cancer, it is increasingly being used to treat non-advanced prostate cancer, with experts warning to assure that the benefits of androgen deprivation therapy outweigh the risks.

Prostate cancer and fish oil study under fire

Tuesday, July 16th, 2013

It’s likely that you saw last week’s news headlines about a recent study finding that fish oil, specifically Omega-3 fatty acids naturally found in salmon, flaxseed and other foods, is linked to a increase in prostate cancer.  As you might imagine, the headlines drew national, even global, media attention, leaving the medical community in a bit of a spin.

This week, the study that made news headlines last week is facing real scrutiny, as its findings go against everything previously known to be true about fish oil actually reducing the likelihood of many cancers.  Multiple studies have found fish oil to be beneficial in preventing cancer, including those performed by the University of California San Francisco, and the Harvard School of Public Health.

As with other studies that have raised eyebrows, experts recommend consulting multiple reputable sources for online medical information, rather than making personal health decisions based on a single article or study. Perhaps this is a great example of both the benefits and drawbacks of having millions of pages of online health information at our fingertips.  While we have access to on demand health information, we also must be informed consumers of that information.
