The mysterious relation between inflammation and prostate cancer

responses, and urine reflux [ 5 , 10 , 15 ]. The persistence of these factors is able to contribute to chronic prostatic inflammation. Prostate cancer (PC) is the second common cancer among American men. The role of inflammation or infection remains unclear in different cancer sites and the prostate. Recent studies in different areas, such as epidemiology, histopathology, and molecular pathology, give emerging evidence of the possible role of prostatic inflammation as an important factor involved in PC initiation and progression [ 16 , 17 , 18 ]. Inflammation is

The high-risk HPV infection and urinary system tumor

these studies has resulted in the ambiguity in the correlation between high-risk HPV infection and urinary system tumors. This article describes the progress in the study on the relationship between high-risk HPV infection and tumors of the urinary system. 1 Relationship between high-risk HPV infection and tumors of the urinary system 1.1 High-risk HPV infection and prostate cancer Studies have suggested that HPV infection, especially the high-risk type, is highly detectable in prostate carcinoma tissue. This characteristic indicates that HPV infection has a

Role of SR-BI in atherosclerosis, malignancies, and infectious diseases

cancers [ 12 ]. Prostate cancer is one of the most common solid organ malignancies in men. The presence of a number of unfavorable factors, such as high-fat high-cholesterol diet and hyperlipidemia, can increase the risk of prostate cancer [ 13 ]. SR-BI plays a key role in the incidence and development of prostate cancer, especially in the secretion and activity of antigens in prostate cancer cells. Downregulation of SR-BI in prostate cancer cells (C4-2 and LNCaP cell lines) significantly reduces the viability of cells and the secretion of prostate-specific antigen
