- adj. relating to the prostate gland
Sorry, no etymologies found.
The duct of the seminal vesicle joins the _vas deferens_ of the same side (both functionally and embryologically the seminal vesicle is no more than a diverticulum of the vas deferens); passing on under the name of the _common seminal_ or _ejaculatory duct_, the canal opens into the prostatic portion of the urethra (the orifices of the two common seminal ducts are in the folds of mucous membrane forming the right and left lateral margins of the _prostatic utricle_ or _uterus masculinus_).
Provenge, an investigational vaccine for the treatment of prostate cancer, works by stimulating the immune system to recognize a protein known as the prostatic acid phosphatase or PAP, which is found in about 95% of all prostate cancer cells and attacks the cancer cells.
It can also occur as a nonadaptive, pathological change, such as prostatic hyperplasia.
An elevated PSA could indicate a common condition called benign prostatic hyperplasia, an infection or inflammatory condition of the prostate.
Several other studies support the benefits of soy for prostate health, including two in which genistein slowed the growth of prostate tissues in benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH or basically, an enlarged prostate) and interfered with the growth of prostate cancer cells.
The drugs — prescribed to treat a common urological condition called benign prostatic hyperplasia BPH and baldness — work by blocking androgen.

It has been replaced by the newly FDA approved prostatic hyperplasia drug, Gottaflo.
Huggins, though, was far less interested in cancer than in the physiology of prostatic fluid.
