Highlights in Urology

High expression of MUC1 + HER3 is associated with favorable outcome in bladder cancer patients

As reported in BJU International, elevated co-expression of MUC1 + HER3 was associated with improved survival in patients with bladder cancer. MUC1 alone, or elevated MUC1 + non-elevated HER3, had no prognostic value. Moreover, MUC1 was not predictive of survival, tumor stage, or tumor grade.

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]).

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.
