Introduction: Prostate cancer is a public health problem worldwide. The cure is unlikely and therapeutic alternatives are limited. The Brazilian biodiversity represents a huge source of potential discovery of new drugs derived from plants. We therefore aimed to conduct a biomonitoring chemical study of plant extracts from Pouteria sp. previously shown to be cytotoxic in androgen-sensitive (LNCaP) and androgen-resistant (PC3) human prostate cancer cell lines.<p cla...

Introduction: Pheochromocytomas are adrenomedullary catecholamine-secreting tumors. These account for <0.1% of all causes of hypertension and may be related to potentially fatal hypertensive crises. Can appear as sporadic tumors or associated with familial syndromes.Malignancy occurs in 15–20% of the cases and is characterized by local invasion or distant metastasis rather than capsular invasion. Tumor recurrence has been reported with a frequen...

Introduction: Pheochromocytoma (Pheo) and paragangliomas (PGL) are rare catecholamine-producing tumors.Near 35% of patients have disease-causing germline mutations.10% are malignant although the malignancy rate differs accordingly to the genetic background.Purpose: This study aims to characterize the sample of patients followed on a tertiary Portuguese Center and associate the presence of genetic mutation with clinical presentation.<p class="abstext"...
