Blood Test Predicts Prostate Cancer Treatment Response

Prostate cancer became a bigger killer than breast cancer for the first time, official statistics revealed last year. More than 11,800 men a year - or one every 45 minutes - are now killed by the disease in the UK, compared with about 11,400 women dying of breast cancer. More...

Tumor Microbiome Appears to Vary with Cancer Type

Bacteria are well-known residents in human tumors, but whether their presence is advantageous to the tumors or to the bacteria themselves has been unclear. Bacteria found within tumors were localized within both cancer cells and immune cells and that the bacterial composition varied according to tumor type. More...

Germline Risk Variants Found in Prostate Cancer Patients

Studies done over the past five years or so have unearthed pathogenic germline variants in some 12% to 17% of men with prostate cancer, and such alterations can impact everything from the treatment options available to them, to the management strategies used for other members of the same family.
