Prostanoid Prostanoid is the term used to describe three classes of eicosanoids: the prostaglandins (mediators of inflammatory and anaphylactic reactions), the thromboxanes (mediators of vasoconstriction) and the prostacyclins (active in the resolution phase of inflammation.)
Prostanthera lasianthos Prostanthera lasianthos, the Victorian Christmas Bush, is a large shrub or small tree which is native to Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania in Australia. It grows up to 10 m high but is usually much less and is found in wet sclerophyll forests, often beside creeks.
Prostate biopsy Prostate biopsy is a procedure in which small samples are removed from a man's prostate gland to be tested for the presence of cancer. It is typically performed when the scores from a PSA blood test rise to a level that is associated with the possible presence of prostate cancer.
Prostate cancer screening Prostate cancer screening is an attempt to identify individuals with prostate cancer in a broad segment of the populationâ€”those for whom there is no reason to suspect prostate cancer. There are currently two methods used: One is the digital rectal examination (DRE), in which the examiner inserts a gloved, lubricated finger into the rectum to examine the adjoining prostate.
