Highlights in Urology

NSAID use inversely related to prostate cancer incidence and mortality

Based on a meta-analysis reported in BMC Medicine, NSAID use is associated with a decreased risk of prostate cancer (OR=0.92 [total] and 0.81 [advanced]) and prostate cancer-specific mortality (HR=0.86 [total] and 0.81 [advanced]).

PCA3 useful for early diagnosis of prostate cancer

Based on a meta-analysis reported in the Chinese Medical Journal, prostate cancer antigen 3 (PCA3) can be used for the early diagnosis of prostate cancer and to avoid unnecessary biopsies, with a sensitivity of 0.82, a specificity of 0.962, a positive likelihood ratio of 2.39, a negative likelihood ratio of 0.51, and a diagnostic odds ratio of 4.89.

GALNT4 predicts survival in patients with ccRCC

As reported in the Journal of Urology, N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase 4 (GALNT4) levels are decreased in tumor specimens from patients with clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC; n=104) compared to peritumoral specimens. Decreased expression of GALNT4 is associated with poor OS (OR=3.08) and RFS (OR=2.17). Further, GALNT4 is negatively correlated with tumor size, necrosis, and TNM stage.
