Prostate cancer: Microbiome — the 'unforeseen organ'
Muhammed A.P. Manzoor & Punchapaddy-Devasya Rekha

Published online: 27 June 2017
p521 | doi:10.1038/nrurol.2017.97

The advent of molecular methods for the identification and characterization of the microbiome has led researchers to understand the role of the microbiota in various clinical conditions. Research by Cavarretta and colleagues has revealed the presence of microbial dysbiosis and its potential relationship with pathophysiology in the prostate tumour microenvironment. This finding could potentially enable future investigations that clarify the role of the microbiota in the development of prostate cancer and its future management, from a different perspective.

Varicocele and male infertility
Christian Fuglesang S. Jensen et al.

Published online: 04 July 2017
p523 | doi:10.1038/nrurol.2017.98

Varicocele is the most common correctable cause of male infertility, but some men with varicoceles are able to father children, even without intervention, and so the link between varicoceles and male infertility remains a matter of debate. Oxidative stress seems to be a central mechanism of testicular damage; however, no single theory to explain the differential effect of varicoceles on infertility has been suggested. In this Review, a panel of expert authors discuss the epidemiology and pathophysiology of varicocele-related infertility, and consider the optimal treatment for men with varicocele.

Risk factors for cryptorchidism
Jason K. Gurney et al.

Published online: 27 June 2017
p534 | doi:10.1038/nrurol.2017.90

Undescended testis — known as cryptorchidism — is one of the most common congenital abnormalities observed in boys, and is one of the few known risk factors for testicular cancer. The key factors that contribute to the occurrence of cryptorchidism remain elusive and a broad range of putative risk factors have been evaluated, but their plausibility is still in question.

Radiotherapy for renal cell carcinoma: renaissance of an overlooked approach
Shankar Siva et al.

Published online: 20 June 2017
p549 | doi:10.1038/nrurol.2017.87

Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is largely percieved to be radioresistant, owing to the failure of several clinical trials involving fractionated radiotherapy. However, following the availability of new technologies, which enable the delivery of ablative doses of radiation, in fewer fractions, excellent responses have been observed among patients with RCC. In this Review, the authors describe the evidence supporting the use of ablative-dose radiotherapy, either alone, or in combination with other therapies in patients with RCC.

Landmarks in the treatment of muscle-invasive bladder cancer
Niyati Lobo et al.

Published online: 04 July 2017
p565 | doi:10.1038/nrurol.2017.82

Muscle-invasive bladder cancer (MIBC) is an aggressive disease associated with high morbidity and mortality. In this Perspective, the authors describe the timeline of advances in treating MIBC, including radical cystectomy with pelvic lymph node dissection, the creation of increasingly sophisticated urinary diversions, use of cisplatin-based neoadjuvant chemotherapy, bladder-sparing protocols, and immunotherapy.
