Androgens Modify Therapeutic Response to Cabazitaxel in Models of Advanced Prostate Cancer

To examine the impact of androgens on the antitumor effect of cabazitaxel (CBZ), investigators used human prostate cancer cell lines with different sensitivity to androgens and CBZ.


Resveratrol Inhibits the Tumor Migration and Invasion by Upregulating TET1 and Reducing TIMP2/3 Methylation in Prostate Carcinoma Cells

Resveratrol inhibited the migration and invasion of prostate cancer cells, promoted the demethylation of tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases (TIMP)2 and TIMP3 to upregulate their expressions, and suppressed the expressions of MMP2 and MMP9.


Altered Staining Patterns and Expression Level of Engrailed-2 in Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia and Prostate Cancer Predict Prostatic Disease Progression

Scientists showed that their homemade engrailed-2 (EN2) monoclonal antibody could specifically bind endogenous and exogenous EN2 protein in three different prostate cancer cell lines.
