Metastatic Prostate Cancer Cases Skyrocket

The number of new cases of metastatic prostate cancer climbed 72 percent in the past decade from 2004 to 2013, reports a new Northwestern Medicine study. The authors suspect the recent trend of fewer men being screened and more aggressive disease may be contributing to the rise. The largest increase in new cases was among men 55 to 69 years old, which rose 92 percent in the past decade. This rise is troubling because men in this age group are believed to benefit most from prostate cancer screening and early treatment.

Men with Metastatic Prostate Cancer Should Be Considered for Germline Genetic Testing of DNA Repair Genes

Men with metastatic prostate cancer should be considered for germline genetic testing of DNA repair genes, regardless of age or family history, according to a team of researchers from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK), Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, University of Washington School of Medicine, University of Michigan, and the Institute of Cancer Research Royal Marsden Hospital.

Testing for Inherited Mutations Could Benefit Men with Advanced Prostate Cancer

This groundbreaking study revealed that more than 10 percent of men with aggressive prostate cancer that has spread outside of the prostate have inherited mutations in DNA repair genes — more than four times the rate of the general population and more than twice the rate of men with localized prostate cancer. Men with such mutations could benefit from targeted treatment already approved for ovarian cancer patients with these mutations, such as PARP inhibitors or platinum drugs.
