Being overweight may cause more hospital admissions and higher incidences of disease and mortality than previous studies report, according to new University of Bristol research. The study, published in Economics and Human Biology, used a genetic technique to identify the sole impact of body composition on hospital admissions from over 300,000 people.
Black men are disproportionately impacted by injuries in the United States. This disparity is glaring given that injury is one of the top ten causes of death. Data show that injured Black men from disadvantaged neighborhoods experience higher injury mortality, years of life-expectancy loss, and psychological symptoms that persist after initial wounds have been treated.
The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center’s Research Highlights provides a glimpse into recently published studies in basic, translational and clinical cancer research from MD Anderson experts. Current advances include an anti-CD19 chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cell therapy to treat follicular lymphoma, targeted therapies for urothelial cancers and advanced breast cancers, understanding the tumor microenvironment and immune landscape in pancreatic cancer, a link between depression risk and androgen deprivation for prostate cancer, and the discovery of new therapeutic targets for Alzheimer’s disease, liver cancer and aggressive breast cancer.

An international research team co-led by scientists at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center and The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute has identified an important accelerator of treatment-resistant prostate cancer. The study, published today in Cell Reports, provides insight into how loss or mutation of the NCOR2 gene accelerates the progression of prostate cancer to a more lethal form of the disease.
Surgeons at Henry Ford Health System’s Vattikuti Urology Institute (VUI) performed what is believed to be the first precision prostatectomy through the bladder using a single port robotic surgical system.
Researchers at UCLA Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center led a large international study providing what is believed to be the first evidence (albeit indirect) that a recently approved imaging technique improves risk-stratification and long-term prognostic capabilities for patients with high-risk prostate cancer whose conventional imaging showed only localized disease.
A team led by the UW has developed a new, non-destructive method that images entire 3D biopsies instead of a slice for determining prostate cancer aggressiveness. The 3D images provided more information than a 2D image — specifically, details about the tree-like structure of the glands throughout the tissue.
Among HIV-positive black and Latino men who have sex with men, the use of methamphetamine combined with intimate partner violence may increase the risk for developing chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease and other disorders.
A previous US statement discouraging routine prostate-specific antigen (PSA) testing led to lower rates of prostate cancer screening and higher metastatic rates across racial groups – including Black men, who are at increased risk of prostate cancer, suggests a study in Urology Practice®, an Official Journal of the American Urological Association (AUA). The journal is published in the Lippincott portfolio by Wolters Kluwer.
In the first population-based study of its kind, researchers from NYU Grossman School of Medicine and Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine published online today in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine suggests that men between 20 and 65 years of age with no prior history of CVD but who use ENDS daily are more than twice (2.4 times) as likely as men who have never used ENDS to report erectile dysfunction.
Transgender women may be at higher risk for type 2 diabetes compared to cisgender women, but not to cisgender men, according to new research published in the Endocrine Society’s Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.
Epilepsy, affecting some 3.5 million children and adults in the U.S., is a brain disorder characterized by recurring seizures. With a combination of the right medical care and a healthy lifestyle, most patients can effectively manage their epilepsy and enjoy a high quality of life.
University at Buffalo research found that patients who earn less than $38,000 per year, identify as male or were treated in an urban hospital have a higher risk of being readmitted to a hospital within a month of discharge. The factors were associated with increased readmissions for patients treated for heart failure, pneumonia, acute myocardial infarction, and acute exacerbation of COPD.
O câncer de próstata é o segundo tipo de câncer mais comum em homens em todo o mundo. É importante que eles façam exames para detectar a doença precocemente. Um estudo recente mostra que a adição de exercícios e atividades físicas à terapia pode ajudar a melhorar os resultados.
سرطان البروستاتا هو ثاني أكثر أنواع السرطانات شيوعًا بين الرجال في جميع أنحاء العالم. من المهم أن يتم فحص الرجال بحثًا عن المرض لاكتشافه مبكرًا، كما أظهرت دراسة حديثة أن التمارين والأنشطة البدنية باعتبارها علاجًا إضافيًا قد يساعدان في تحسين نتائج المريض.
El cáncer de próstata es el segundo tipo de cáncer más frecuente entre los hombres de todo el mundo. Es importante examinar si esta enfermedad está presente en los hombres para detectarla pronto y un estudio reciente revela que hacer ejercicio y actividad física que ayuda a mejorar los resultados.
In a large study led by Yale Cancer Center, more men received a prostate-specific antigen or PSA test to detect prostate cancer following revisions to the recommendation by the U.S. Preventative Services Task Force on screening. The results also showed significant increases in PSA testing among older men, a group for whom screening is not routinely recommended.
Men, young adults, motorcyclists, and people in European and other reasonably well-developed countries are more likely to die in road crashes caused by drinking, according to a novel review of global data. Researchers found that the risk of dying in a road crash attributed to alcohol consumption varied markedly around the world and across population groups. The new review may be the first to provide detailed information on the rate of fatal injury in traffic crashes caused by alcohol use and its variation by location, the sex and age of victims, or transit circumstances. The World Health Organization estimates that in 2018, one in four road deaths worldwide were attributable to drinking. For the review in Alcoholism: Clinical & Experimental Research, investigators in Mexico explored how these fatalities are distributed, geographically and demographically. This more granular information can potentially help target prevention resources at locations and communities where they may most eff
A new Harvey L. Neiman Health Policy Institute study of nearly 800,000 men found that between 2011 and 2017 black patients were 24% less likely than white patients to have a prostate MRI after receiving an elevated (prostate-specific antigen) PSA score. For patients with an elevated PSA, use of prostate MRI prior to prostate biopsy has increased substantially in recent years as MRI can improve identification of clinically significant prostate cancer and obviate the need for biopsy, thus decreasing overdiagnosis of these cases. This JAMA Network Open study was based on 794,809 men, age 40 or older, with a PSA test using claims data from the Optum Clinformatics Data Mart Database. Of these men, 51,500 had an PSA score >4ng/mL. The study found that patients with Medicare compared to commercial insurance were less likely to have a prostate MRI as were patients with HMO insurance plans compared to other plan types.
A new study by researchers at Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) in New York City demonstrates over half of patients with rheumatic diseases who contracted COVID-19 during the pandemic and completed a COVID-19 survey, experienced so-called “long-haul” COVID, or prolonged symptoms of the infection, including loss of taste or smell, muscle aches and difficulty concentrating, for one month or longer.
A new study from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis has identified an RNA molecule that suppresses prostate tumors. The scientists found that prostate cancers develop ways to shut down this RNA molecule to allow themselves to grow.
