Biomarker could lead to personalized therapies for prostate cancer
In 2016, more than 181,000 new cases of prostate cancer were reported in the US, according to the American Cancer Society. Multiple factors have resulted in the rise of diagnoses, but a number of high-grade tumors remain underdiagnosed and undertreated. Now, researchers at the University of Missouri have explored how a specific gene/protein status may allow clinicians to better identify prostate cancer progression while helping them to make rational decisions in treating the disease.
