Hormone Therapy Side Effects
Edward Weber, M.D. Medical Oncologist, describes the side effects of cardiac complications when receiving Androgen Deprivation Therapy, ADT, also known as Hormone Therapy, for treatment of Prostate Cancer. ADT is used to reduce the production of testosterone needed for the growth of prostate cancer cells. But ADT can have cardiac complications, especially on men with a history of heart disease. Video Development: Dean Dubinsky Video Transcript: Prostate Cancer Treatment Research Foundation. Increasing Knowledge - Building Hope. Edward Weber, M.D. Medical Oncologist, Prostate Cancer Results Study Group. Men with prostate cancer are much more likely to die of cardiac disease and not from prostate cancer, unless the diagnosis is made at a very late stage.  For that reason, a man’s cardiac history, his cardiovascular risk factors, and the choice of which drug to use for ADT are very critical issues. Androgen deprivation therapy, ADT, the  mainstay of treatment for years, is associated with a 10-20% increased risk of cardiac complications, such as a heart attack, stroke, or sudden death. If a man has already had two important cardiac events before starting ADT the risk of another cardiac event is greatly increased. Surprisingly these serious problems can occur within the  first 6 - 12 months. Degarelix (Firmagon), the newer drug for ADT, is less toxic to the heart than leuprolide (Lupron), and, for many clinicians, is becoming the preferred agent for hormone therapy. Every man before starting ADT needs to have a thorough evaluation for cardiac risk factors. This exam should focus on past history of cardiovascular disease, hypertension, diabetes, elevated cholesterol and triglycerides, and the life-style factors diet and exercise habits.   In some men this pre-ADT evaluation will lead to choosing Firmagon over Lupron, or receiving the shortest period of drug exposure as possible, or beginning a program for modification of cardiac risk factors — or possibly avoiding the use of these drugs entirely.

My Prostate Cancer — #4 — Review Hormone Therapy, Radiation and Side-effects
This episode of My Prostate Cancer is titled: "You Get to Choose," and reviews some prostate cancer treatment choices. Watching will show you how the therapies work and explain the side-effects of Hormone and Radiation therapy. Often, it's said that Hormone therapy is the least invasive of all prostate cancer treatments, but this ignores the very significant side-effects, which include hot-flashes, loss of libido, testicle shrinkage, weight gain, memory loss, mood swings and depression, along with an increase risk of heart attack and breast enlargement. Another name for hormone treatments or ADT is Chemical Castration, and is often given to Sex offenders to decrease the likelihood of recidivism or as just plain punishment. Amnesty International has said that the forced use of Chemical Castration is "Inhumane." Radiation Therapy includes information on the older External Beam Radiation Therapy (EBRT), as well as the more advanced Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT). Also included is a discussion on the very new Proton Radiation Therapy, which costs a great deal more than the traditional treatments. It's great that Ben Stiller, Dr. Oz and other media outlets have just recently covered Ben's Prostate Cancer diagnosis, but when compared to breast cancer—which is a terrible disease that kills as many people as prostate cancer does—it gets hardly any news coverage. It's interesting the number of men who with every good intention work diligently to promote breast cancer awareness while doing virtually nothing to do the same thing for prostate cancer. This always comes to mind when the National Football league dons pink shoes and wristbands for the Susan G. Komen Organization. It's great, but it's too bad there's not another Sunday when they don blue for raising the awareness of prostate cancer.

When is Hormone Therapy Used for Prostate Cancer
Hormone therapy, also known as anti-hormonal therapy, works by reducing serum testosterone levels. This is highly effective in controlling the growth and progression of prostate cancer cells in early stage as well as advanced stage prostate cancers. Dr. Farshid Dayyani, M.D. earned his medical degree in Munich, Germany at Ludwig Maximilians Universitaet before completing his internal medicine internship and residency at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, Mass.

Say No   to Hormone  Therapy for Prostate Cancer
Say No to Hormone Therapy for prostate cancer Androgen deprivation therapy (ADT), is an antihormone therapy whose main use is in treating prostate cancer. There is mounting evidence that androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) for prostate cancer carries significant health risks .ADT accelerates aging. A man decides to check his prostate specific antigen (PSA). He faces two hazards: 1. False diagnosis- While elevated PSA indicates that he got prostatitis, according to medicine he got cancer. 2. He is treated with androgen deprivation therapy(ADT) which is toxic. Medicine does not fully understand cancer progression. Prostate cancer starts as a chronic inflammation (prostatitis) in which cancer emerges. I shall start with a description of uterine cancer and compare is with prostate cancer progression. Actually all cancers progress in the same way. Chronic virus infection is responded by a dysplastic field in which tumor emerges. Dysplastic fields have the same topology determined by distinct gene sets called Dysplasia gene sets Prostate glands secrete prostate-specific antigen (PSA), a glycoprotein enzyme secreted by the epithelial cells of the prostate gland. PSA is produced for the ejaculate, where it liquefies semen Androgen deprivation therapy (ADT), also called androgen suppression therapy, is an antihormone therapy whose main use is in treating prostate cancer. Prostate cancer cells usually require androgen hormones, such as testosterone, to grow. ADT reduces the levels of androgen hormones, with drugs or surgery, to prevent the prostate cancer cells from grow

Urowebinar: Hormone therapy in prostate cancer  who, how and when
Presenter: Dr. Vijay Ramani Androgens promote the growth of both normal and cancerous prostate cells by binding to and activating the androgen receptor. Once activated, the androgen receptor stimulates the expression of specific genes that cause prostate cells to grow. Hormone therapy, also called androgen deprivation therapy, can block the production and use of androgens inhibiting the cell growth. Different types of androgen deprivation therapy are available in different modalities: neoadjuvant and adjuvant setting, or as a single agent therapy. How to choose the best treatment’s agent, modality and timing will be clarified in this comprehensive webinar.

Hormone Therapy for Prostate Cancer
Prostate cancer hormone therapy is used quite often when treating prostate cancer patients. This therapy does not involve the patient receiving hormones. Rather, doctors try to suppress the hormone testosterone. Dr. Richard Bevan-Thomas tels us that prostate cancer cells actually use testosterone for fuel in its early stages. Patients are routinely given a shot which tells their brain to stop signalling the testicles to make testosterone. These shots may be administered from one to six months. This therapy works well, but it does have its side effects. Dr. Bevan-Thomas is the Medical Director for Prostate Cancer Live. A graduate of Duke University, Rich received both a master's degree in anatomy and his medical degree from St. Louis University School of Medicine. He completed residency training in urologic surgery at the University of Texas Houston Health Science Center and the renowned MD Anderson Cancer Center, also in Houston. In 2002, he received two top honors in his field; the Pfizer Scholar in Urology and the Gerald G. Murphy Scholar in Urology.

My Prostate Cancer—#1—How The PSA Set Me On My Prostate Cancer Journey
This episode of My Prostate Cancer is titled: "Should I Be Worried?" and reviews the PSA test and how it led to my prostate cancer diagnosis. The series is intended for all men and especially those newly diagnosed with prostate cancer. It begins with a PSA Test that indicated I had a problem, which led to a biopsy and ultimately treatment. I learned a lot along the way regarding available treatments like Hormone Therapy (Lupron), Radiation Therapy, both EBRT and IMRT, Radical Prostatectomy, High Intensity Focused Ultrasound or HIFU, Laser Focused Ablation, Watchful Waiting and Active Surveillance. For all these I review the procedures along with the many side-effects. I describe the treatment I underwent and second thoughts on whether or not I took the right course of treatment. There is controversy over the PSA test and whether all men should undergo it after a certain age. It's my feeling that there is no harm in taking the test, but a lot of harm to overreacting to its results. This is what gives the PSA a bad name. Faced with a prostate cancer diagnosis a patients best weapon is knowledge. This series provides a great deal of information about the disease and provides a solid basis for deciding on a course of action. It's great that Ben Stiller, Dr. Oz and other media outlets have just recently covered Ben's Prostate Cancer diagnosis, but when compared to breast cancer—which is a terrible disease—it gets hardly any news coverage. It's interesting the number of men who with every good intention work diligently to promote breast cancer awareness while doing virtually nothing to do the same thing for prostate cancer.

Study Finds Hormonal Drugs For Prostate Cancer Increase A Risk For Dementia
A new study suggests, that the risk of dementia might be doubled for prostate cancer patients who are treated with testosterone-lowering drugs. Researchers discovered that men who have undergone androgen-deprivation therapy had close to an 8 percent risk of developing dementia within five years of treatment. In comparison, the risk for prostate cancer patients who did no receive the therapy were at a lower 3.5 percent. The study found that Testosterone can promote the growth of prostate cancer,, and one possible treatment option involved using drugs to reduce blood levels of male hormones. Lead researcher Dr. Kevin Nead said, "People who got ADT in our study had twice the risk of developing dementia, compared to people who didn't." http://www.upi.com/Health_News/2016/10/13/Can-hormonal-Rx-for-prostate-cancer-raise-dementia-risk/7011476376455/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Leuprolide Acetate Injection (Lupron)
Leuprolide Acetate (Lupron) is related to a naturally occurring hormone called gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH). Leuprolide Acetate has also been used to treat endometriosis, uterine fibroids, early puberty, and as part of the process to stimulate multiple eggs for assisted reproductive technologies. The strength of Leuprolide Acetate is 1mg/0.2ml. Leuprolide Acetate is administered as a subcutaneous injection using insulin syringes. Insulin syringes are used because the measurement on the syringe is in units (i.e.: 10 units is equivalent to 0.1ml/cc). For the role it plays in assisted reproductive technologies, Leuprolide Acetate is used to reduce the amount of estrogen and testosterone in the body. This decrease in estrogen production will prevent ovulation and stop menstrual periods. For questions regarding medication administration or to speak to our nurse or pharmacist, please call 877-334-1610.

Prostate Cancer Moon Shot update
Highlights: Host(H): Welcome to Cancer Newsline http://www.mdanderson.org/newsroom/cancer-newsline, a podcast series from University of Texas, MD Anderson Cancer Center. Today we're talking with Dr. Tim Thompson http://faculty.mdanderson.org/Timothy_Thompson who is a professor in Genitourinary Medical Oncology here at MD Anderson, and also part of MD Anderson's prostate Moon Shot Program http://www.cancermoonshots.org/cancer-types/prostate/. Our moon shot programs are way too quickly move research from the lab to the bedside, translational research will make differences in certain cancers. H: So, tell us about the prostate moon shot? What were your initial goals when you launched two years ago. G: All right. Well, the initial goals of our moon shot program sort of mimic important questions that have been out there for prostate cancer actually for decades. One is that it's very difficult to distinguish prostate cancers that are indolent, so called indolent, and really don't have that much potential to progress clinically from those that could progress very rapidly and present serious problems for the patient. So, there was the advent of widespread PSA screening and other tests that bring prostate cancer out and lead to more diagnosis suppressed by cancer. This problem becomes more acute. And so, this again, was one of the two questions that we thought about when we organized our moon shot program. And so we have an effort to really identify biomarkers that will be very accurate in distinguishing indolent from aggressive disease, and through that would give the patient and the physician much more objective information on how far to go with treatment. H: And prostate cancer http://www.mdanderson.org/patient-and-cancer-information/cancer-information/cancer-types/prostate-cancer is one of those diseases that sometimes often only require surveillance, you know, especially among older men. So, this would be a way to kind of find out who would benefit from surgery versus surveillance? G: That's exactly right. And we have an ongoing clinical trial for active surveillance, were then are moon shot program that really has really given us a lot of advantages and approach in this problem. This trial gives us access to tissue, plasma, and serum that we can use to test biomarkers, look at clinical data that's very well annotated and see how our candidate biomarkers really perform within the context of these clinical trials. So, that's one of the pieces of this effort, this way. H: And we found that PSA is pretty far from perfect. G: It's far from perfect. It's kind of a red flag type marker. Certainly at the extremes, it gives more information than it does within the so called gray area which is where most prostate cancers are when they're diagnosed. They're in a very, very gray area, nearly 80 percent of prostate cancers that are picked up with screening or picked up by symptoms, fall into this area of--in an area where the physician or the patient really is--doesn't have that much objective information, so they're--you know, they get different opinions, they are--their heads kind of spinning with what to do with regard to initial definitive therapy, so that's where this biomarker effort would come in. H: So flagship number two in the prostate moon shot is in the clinical setting where you're testing anti-androgen receptor agents. G: Right … A few years ago there were developments in the field that led to two approved--FDA approved agents - abiraterone and thalidomide … We're testing these drugs to identify biomarkers in patients’ bone marrows … through looking at these bone marrow biopsies, biomarkers have identified that would indicate resistance to these two new second--so-called second generation antiandrogen receptor agents.
