Biochemically recurrent prostate cancer is an increasingly common disease state, with more t cases occurring annually in the United States. Fortunately, progress continues to be made to more effectively identify metastatic disease, optimize existing therapies, and develop new technologies and therapeutic strategies for the timing and delivery of systemic treatments to improve Cited by: 2. Immunotherapy or Biological therapy is the treatment of disease by activating or suppressing the immune therapies designed to elicit or amplify an immune response are classified as activation immunotherapies, while immunotherapies that reduce or suppress are classified as suppression immunotherapies..

Biological therapy for cancer is a type of treatment that uses the body's immune system to kill cancer cells. Biological therapy for cancer is used in the treatment of many types of cancer to prevent or slow tumor growth and to prevent the spread of cancer.

Biological therapy for cancer often causes fewer toxic side effects than do other cancer. Based on this data, ASCO has recommended that the MUC-1 assays, CA and CAcan be used for monitoring patients with metastatic breast cancer during active therapy (See Table Table3).

These assays should be used in conjunction Cited by: Introduction. Fewer than 12% of themen expected to have been diagnosed with prostate cancer in the United States in will die from this disease.

1 Many more patients will experience rising prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels following local therapy, a condition known as biochemical recurrence (BCR; Figure 1).Physicians treating patients with BCR face a difficult set of Cited by: Adding androgen deprivation therapy to radiation therapy can improve survival for some men with recurrent prostate cancer, according to the long-term results of a clinical trial.

The combination therapy was also associated with a lower rate of metastases and death due to. The book encompasses new molecular imaging probes and techniques for early detection of cancer, and describes molecular imaging-guided cancer therapy.

Discussion also includes nanoplatforms incorporating both cancer imaging and therapeutic components, as well as. Nanobiomaterials in Cancer Therapy presents the major applications of nanobiomaterials in oncology, offering an up-to-date overview of the latest research in this field.

Utilizing nanobiomaterials, novel therapeutic approaches enable significant improvements in drug-loading capacity, formulation stability and drug efficiency.

Taken into account the 17% intraindividual variation of the assay, alphaalphaCTX could be a sensitive biochemical marker for the close monitoring of cancer patients aiming the facilitation of. Johnson et al. discussed the genetic and biochemical alternations in heterogeneous cell signaling pathways in non-small-cell lung cancer and its implications in targeted cancer therapy.

An association has been observed between transformation and an increase in phosphomonoesters (PMEs) detected in the 31P MRS spectrum, as well as an Cited by: Following conventional radiotherapy for prostate cancer, 30–40% of men with favorable to intermediate risk disease will suffer recurrence and up to 75–80% of those with locally advanced disease or unfavorable risk factors (Pilepich et al., ; Bolla et al., ).Dose escalation and the combination of hormone therapy with radiotherapy have reduced recurrence rates : Juanita Crook.

Development of biochemical markers for human cancer in recent years that have been shown to be of some clinical value in management of patients will be presented. Previous approaches of using conventional immunochemical techniques to the measurement of target markers still dominate the area of laboratory investigation and clinical by:   Most of the blood tests aiming for breast cancer screening rely on quantification of a single or few biomarkers.

The aim of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of detecting breast cancer by analyzing the total biochemical composition of plasma as well as peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) using infrared spectroscopy.

Blood was collected from 29 patients with confirmed breast Cited by: Leader in Clinical Trial Management Solutions. Successful clinical trials require the ability to see key details and uncover hidden insights. Bioclinica utilizes science and technology to bring clarity to clinical trials, helping companies to develop new life-improving therapies more efficiently and safely.

Surgical removal of the prostate, or prostatectomy, is a common treatment either for early stage prostate cancer or for cancer that has failed to respond to radiation most common type is radical retropubic prostatectomy, when the surgeon removes the prostate through an abdominal r type is radical perineal prostatectomy, when the surgeon removes the prostate through Specialty: oncology.

A number of biochemical markers have been proposed for monitoring the therapy of small-cell lung cancer (SCLC). This report reviews the experience at a single institution using three biochemical markers, alphaacid glycoprotein (AGP), carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA), and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), for serially monitoring the therapy of patients with SCLC.

AGP measurements Cited by: Halifax, Nova Scotia () Biochemical recurrence, defined as a PSA recurrence without radiographic evidence of disease following definitive primary therapy for prostate cancer, is a growing clinical entity – and one identified by the Genitourinary Research Consortium (GURC) Best Practice Working Group as a priority to “develop a monitoring and treatment algorithm to support the.
