By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Cancer Weekly -- Data detailed on Oncology - Prostate Cancer have been presented. According to news originating from New York City, New York, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, "Androgen-deprivation therapy (ADT) entails lowering serum testosterone levels to castrate levels and forms a cornerstone of the management of hormone-sensitive advanced prostate cancer; however, the benefit of ADT is partially offset by its detrimental metabolic and cardiovascular adverse effects."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, "ADT decreases insulin sensitivity while promoting dyslipidemia and sarcopenic obesity, which leads to an increased risk of cardiovascular morbidity and potentially mortality. The risk seems to be highest in elderly patients who have had recent cardiovascular events before starting ADT."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "It is prudent to engage in an individualized risk-benefit discussion and develop a cohesive multidisciplinary management plan to medically optimize and closely observe these patients before and during treatment with ADT."
