Causes. The causes of prostate cancer are not clear. However, many cases of the disease appear to be related to aberrant cell signaling that involves male androgen hormones, particularly testosterone and its metabolites. Within certain tissues, testosterone may be converted into one of two active compounds— estradiol or s estradiol promotes the growth of prostate. The guest editors of this special issue in Differentiation are pleased to present this compendium of reviews, insights and future directions on the Developmental, Cellular and Molecular Biology of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH). This issue summarizes the latest knowledge of the basic science in the pathogenesis of BPH. We thank all authors and peer reviewers who have contributed to this.
A prostate ultrasound is used to check your prostate gland using ultrasound imagery. The procedure provides your doctor with black-and-white images of your prostate and the surrounding tissues. The Biology of Prolactin and the PRLR. Prolactin is primarily produced by lactotrophs in the anterior pituitary gland of vertebrates ; however, it has also been found in many other extrapituitary sites, including reproductive, immune, neural, and integumentary tissues and other locations such as lacrimal glands, adipose tissue, blood endothelial cells, and kidney .Cited by: 9.

The prostate constitutes part of the male reproductive system and is a small gland located at the base of the bladder surrounding the urethra.

The prostate sits in the pelvis, surrounded by the rectum posteriorly and the bladder superiorly (Figure ). Its normal function is not well understood; it produces some seminal fluid and may facilitate sperm motility.
The prostate is composed of branching glands, with ducts that are lined with secretory epithelial cells and basal cells Scattered neuroendocrine cells are also present Cited by: 7.

Microscopic analysis of prostate tissue by a surgical pathologist is needed for the diagnosis of prostate cancer, for determining prostate cancer stage after prostatectomy, and for histologic grading, via the assignment of a Gleason score, to predict the behavior of prostate cancer.
The majority of prostate cancers are adenocarcinomas, although other types of cancers can appear. Clearly the best book out there. The author is an expert and covers every area of prostate cancer.
This is an absolute must read whether you now have prostate problems or whether you are a very smart man and are preparing for the future to avoid having prostate cancer/5(47).
The prostate contains two main types of tissue: exocrine glandular tissue and fibromuscular tissue. Exocrine glandular tissue in the prostate is epithelial tissue specialized for the secretion of the components of semen.
Most of the prostate is made of exocrine glandular tissue, as the prostate’s primary function is the production of semen. The IGFs are believed to be important in fetal development. 27 IGF-I and -II transcripts are present in fetal tissues. 2 In most rodent tissues, however, IGF-II expression drops dramatically around birth.
11 The key role of IGFs in the development of the rodent prostate is underscored by recent preliminary observations using tissue from IGF-I Cited by: WebMD’s Prostate Anatomy Page provides detailed images, definitions, and information about the prostate.

Chapters are included on basic anatomy and the molecular biology of prostate cancer. Attention is given to pseudoneoplastic and pseudobenign conditions so often misdiagnosed.
The text is well illustrated with drawings, diagrams, and color plates of H&E-stained sections.5/5(2). This book is testimony to that renewed interest and covers the subject from the cancer's natural course, through its biology, evaluation, and surgical and non-surgical treatments, to the care of the patient in the final stages of the disease.
It is a succinct and attractive summary of the current state of play from an international : Neville W Harrison. This book covers all the practical issues related to the interpretation of prostatic biopsies in day-to-day practice, including: biopsy sampling and processing; the diagnosis of limited cancer; differentiation of prostate cancers from benign lesions and recognition of histologic variants; the recognition and clinical significance of “atypical” diagnoses and HGPIN; the identification of.
In the prostate we have no firm information on the actual causative agents which induce benign hyperplasia or cancer although we have some knowledge of factors which may influence tumor growth. Some, for example the endocrine environment, can be by: 7.
In cetaceans the prostate is composed of diffuse urethral glands and is surrounded by a very powerful compressor muscle. Prostatic secretions vary among species.
They are generally composed of simple sugars and are often slightly alkaline. The prostate gland originates with tissues Artery: Internal pudendal artery, inferior vesical artery. The tissue that surrounds the secretory ducts and glands is known as interstitial tissue; this contains muscle, elastic fibres, and collagen fibres that give the prostate gland support and firmness.
The capsule enclosing the prostate is also of interstitial tissue. In man, the prostate contributes 15–30 percent of the semen secreted by the male.
The fluid from the prostate is clear and slightly acidic. Prostate Cancer: Biology, Genetics, and the New Therapeutics, Second Edition, reviews new, valuable approaches to the treatment of prostate cancer in men.
The latest edition contains new material on molecular imaging, new treatments for prostate cancer, molecular targets, cell signaling pathways, bioinformatics, and pathogenomics.
The book details the latest innovations and advances in. The most common type of prostate biopsy is a core needle biopsy. For this procedure, the doctor puts a thin, hollow needle into the prostate gland. When the needle is pulled out it removes a small cylinder of prostate tissue called a core. This is often repeated several times to sample different areas of the prostate.
Andrew J. Armstrong, MD, MSc, provides a background on the biology of prostate cancer, including determining prognosis and the use of AR-targeted therapy. Breast Cancer Multiple Myeloma. These advances have been driven largely by an increased understanding of the underlying biochemistry, molecular biology and genetics of the disease.
New cell and animal models have been developed that recapitulate the natural progression of prostate : Kindle. New cell and animal models have been developed that recapitulate the natural progression of prostate cancer.
New technologies have allowed scientists to view in detail the genomic, proteomic, metabolomics and other –omic universe of cancer cells and tissues. This has resulted in a greater understanding of the pathophysiology of the : Paperback. Definition. The prostate is a gland set between the bladder and the penis in human males.
The gland secretes prostate fluid, a component of seminal fluid which helps sperm cells swim. The Skene’s gland is the female homolog of the prostate gland, but this article focuses solely on the prostate.
