Towards rational and evidence-based use of melatonin in prostate cancer prevention and treatment,   Stephen Y. W. Shiu
The rational use of melatonin in prostate cancer prevention, stabilization of clinically localized favourable-risk prostate cancer and palliative treatment of advanced or metastatic tumour is discussed within the context of the molecular pathogenesis of the disease.
