Two new Resource Centres launched!
20 April 2012
European Urology has launched two new resources that can be accessed from europeanurology.com.
Both resource centers aim to provide information around a specific topic in Urology.
Nocturia Resource Centre
Nocturia is becoming increasingly recognized as a public health concern.
Nocturia should be seen as an independent entity and not just as part of the overactive bladder syndrome (OAB) or a consequence of benign prostatic obstruction (BPO) especially since, nocturnal polyuria (the production of an abnormally large volume of urine at night), is present in 60–80% of patients with nocturia, even when they suffer from the daytime symptoms of OAB and lower urinary tract symptoms/BPO.
Nocturia is not only common but also has a strong impact on sleep, which can lead to serious consequences including reduced quality of life, productivity and overall health. New data reveal increased morbidity and mortality in patients suffering from nocturia.
Advanced Prostate Cancer Resource Centre
Diagnosis and treatment of metastatic and castration resistant prostate cancer became more and more and complex due to the increasingly knowledge and understanding of the underlying molecular events and the subsequently deducted innovative medical treatment approaches.
The treating urologists and oncologists are often overwhelmed by the many new developing aspects in diagnosis and treatment of castration resistant prostate cancer and might be overstrained to adequately assess the clinical relevance of the new developments.
With the new toll of the Prostate Cancer Ressource Center, it is our goal to offer an informative platform to the interested uro-oncologist with regard to the latest developments in the management of castration resistant prostate cancer. We will inform the community about the most recent publications and clinical trials, and we will have international specialists referring their appraisal and experience with the new substances.
