Active surveillance (AS) has evolved as a strategy alternative to radical treatments for very low risk and low-risk prostate cancer (PCa). However, current criteria for selecting AS patients are still suboptimal. Here, we performed an unprecedented analysis of the circulating miRNome to investigate whether specific miRNAs associated with disease reclassification can provide risk refinement to standard clinicopathological features for improving patient selection. The global miRNA expression profi...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate whether prostate cancer (PCa) patients' coping strategies (i.e., fighting spirit, anxious preoccupation, fatalism, helplessness/hopelessness, and avoidance) significantly change during the first 3-year follow-up period of active surveillance (AS). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Altogether, 104 patients on AS completed the Mini-Mental Adjustment to Cancer (Mini-MAC) at baseline (T0), at 10 and 12 months after diagnostic biopsy (T1 and T2, respectively) and then at 24- (T3) and 3...

Purpose In 2003, the German Cancer Society (Deutsche Krebsgesellschaft, DKG) launched a certification program aimed at improving the quality of cancer care. The purpose of this article is to describe the experience of the Prostate Cancer Unit (PCU) at Fondazione IRCCS Istituto Nazionale dei Tumori, Milan, in the process towards DKG certification.

Background The psychological burden possibly deriving from not immediately undergoing radical treatment for prostate cancer (PCa) could be a potential disadvantage of active surveillance (AS), especially in the eve of some relevant clinical exams [i.e., re-biopsy, prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test, and medical examination]. Even if it is known from the literature that the majority of PCa men in AS do not report heightened anxiety, there is a minority of patients who show clinically significan...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVE:Active surveillance (AS) aims to reduce overtreatment in patients with low-risk prostate cancer (PCa) and has, as initial treatment, excellent PCa-specific survival. The ...
