Cognitive Function and Hormone Therapy in Advanced Prostate Cancer - Conversation with Alicia Morgans and Charles Ryan
Dr. Charles Ryan sits down with Dr. Alicia Morgans to discuss the study she's currently leading on Cognitive Effects of Androgen Receptor (AR) Directed Therapies for Advanced Prostate Cancer. This clinical trial studies cognitive function in men with prostate cancer treated with androgen receptor directed therapies such as abiraterone acetate and enzalutamide. Specifically, enzalutamide seems to impact the cognitive vigor of some patients, however Dr. Morgans notes that there is a spectrum of cognitive change that can range from mild impairment to dementia. Currently, there is no real standardized process to identify cognitive function levels, so this is a work in progress that continues to evolve. The goal is to identify those people who are at highest risk and recommend interventions.

COGCaP: An Investigation into the Cognitive Side Effects of Androgen Receptor Targeted Therapies
Written By: Alicia Morgans
Whether androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) affects the cognitive function of men with prostate cancer remains controversial. While some studies have demonstrated that ADT impairs cognitive function, other studies have not found any such association.

Adverse effects of ADT on cognitive function and dementia for men with prostate cancer: A meta-analysis and systematic review
Androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) is a common treatment for metastatic hormone-sensitive prostate cancer. Over 500,000 men are current on an ADT regimen. However, ADT does have some notable side-effects.

From the Desk of the Associate Editor: Androgen deprivation therapy for prostate cancer and dementia risk: a systematic review and meta-analysis
Androgen deprivation therapy causes a host of well-recognized side effects. Recent epidemiological and clinical evidence suggests that ADT may also be associated with dementia and cognitive impairment.

A Randomized Phase II Trial of Ascorbic Acid in Combination with Docetaxel in Men with Metastatic Prostate Cancer
Ascorbic acid (vitamin C) is being used by complementary medicine practitioners to treat cancer, infections, and other conditions. Annual administration of more than 355,000 doses of intravenous (I.V.) ascorbic acid for more than 10,000 patients has been documented. Phase I and II clinical trials in 2012, 2013, and 2014 demonstrated safety and anti-tumor activity for high dose I.V. ascorbic acid.

Abstract - Effect of Androgen Deprivation Therapy on Bone Mineral Density in a Prostate Cancer Cohort in New Zealand: A Pilot Study.
INTRODUCTION:
Reduction in bone mineral density (BMD) is a common side effect of androgen deprivation therapy (ADT). We aimed to examine the cross-sectional and longitudinal variation in BMD and associated bone markers in patients with nonmetastatic prostate cancer (PCa) managed with and without ADT.

Article:

Androgen Receptor Inhibitor - induced "BRCAness" and PARP inhibition
are synthetically lethal for castration-resistant prostate cancer.

On This Site You will find:

Cancers with loss-of-function mutations in BRCA1 or BRCA2 are deficient in the DNA damage repair pathway
called homologous recombination (HR), rendering these cancers exquisitely vulnerable to poly(ADP-ribose)
polymerase (PARP) inhibitors.

Lipid catabolism inhibition sensitizes prostate cancer cells to antiandrogen blockade.
On This Site You will find:

Prostate cancer (PCa) is the most common malignancy among Western men and the second leading-cause
of cancer related deaths. For men who develop metastatic castration resistant PCa (mCRPC), survival is
limited, making the identification of novel therapies for mCRPC critical.
