HOX genes are generally highly expressed in prostate tumours compared to normal prostate tissue; however, targeting the interaction between HOX proteins and their PBX cofactor could lead to a novel therapeutic strategy in this malignancy.
CyberKnife stereotactic body radiation therapy (CK-SBRT) may be a safe, easy and effective therapy for localised prostate cancer, demonstrating a good PSA response, minimal toxicity and overall improvement in patient convenience.
BMC Urology is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers articles on all aspects of the prevention, diagnosis and management of urological disorders, as well as related molecular genetics, pathophysiology, and epidemiology.
It is journal policy to publish work deemed by peer reviewers to be a coherent and sound addition to scientific knowledge and to put less emphasis on interest levels, provided that the research constitutes a useful contribution to the field.

Section Editor Profile
Cosimo De Nunzio, MD, PhD, is Consultant Urologist and contract Professor at the Department of Urology, Ospedale Sant'Andrea, University "La Sapienza", Roma, Italy. His research focus is prostatic disorders with a particular interest in voiding dysfunction, Benign prostatic Hyperplasia and prostate cancer diagnosis and management.
"I am pleased to be involved with BMC Urology first as a reviewer and now as Section Editor for Voiding Dysfunction. BMC Urology is an open access journal publishing original peer-reviewed articles, currently 10th on the SCImago Journal & Country Rank table and with and increasing number of manuscripts published in the last 4 years. When I joined BMC Urology, I have been particularly impressed by the excellent group of Section and Associate Editors involved in the Editorial Board and notwithstanding their young age, they are extremely expert in their field of interest. The journal's excellent editorial staff and the rapidity of the peer review process is another crucial quality of this journal. Moreover, I strongly support the open access platform used by BMC Urology which makes the specialized knowledge of urology more widely available to the scientific community at large, independently of the institutional affiliation or economic resources."
