2019 AUG 27 (NewsRx) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Cancer Daily -- Investigators discuss new findings in Oncology - Prostate Cancer. According to news originating from Suita Osaka, Japan, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, “Prostate cancer is the most common type of cancer and the leading cause of cancer deaths among men in many countries. Preventing progression is a major concern for prostate cancer patients on active surveillance, patients with recurrence after radical therapies, and patients who acquired resistance to systemic therapies.”

Financial support for this research came from Japan Society for the Promotion of Science.

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from the Osaka University Graduate School of Medicine, “Inflammation, which is induced by various factors such as infection, microbiome, obesity, and a high-fat diet, is the major etiology in the development of prostate cancer. Inflammatory cells play important roles in tumor progression. Various immune cells including tumor-associated neutrophils, tumor-infiltrating macrophages, myeloid-derived suppressor cells, and mast cells promote prostate cancer via various intercellular signaling. Further basic studies examining the relationship between the inflammatory process and prostate cancer progression are warranted. Interventions by medications and diets to control systemic and/or local inflammation might be effective therapies for prostate cancer progression. Epidemiological investigations and basic research using human immune cells or mouse models have revealed that non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, metformin, statins, soy isoflavones, and other diets are potential interventions for preventing progression of prostate cancer by suppressing inflammation.”

According to the news editors, the research concluded: “It is essential to evaluate appropriate indications and doses of each drug and diet.”
