Sweeping view of prostate cancer genome yields deep insights

For the first time, researchers have laid bare the full genetic blueprint of multiple prostate tumors, uncovering alterations that have never before been detected and offering a deep view of the genetic missteps that underlie the disease. The study, made possible by key advances in whole genome sequencing and analysis, points to several new… Sweeping view of prostate cancer genome yields deep insights   



Coffee may reduce risk of lethal prostate cancer in men

Men who regularly drink coffee appear to have a lower risk of developing a lethal form of prostate cancer, according to a new study led by Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) researchers. What’s more, the lower risk was evident among men who drank either regular or decaffeinated coffee.

The study will be published… Coffee may reduce risk of lethal prostate cancer in men   



UT Southwestern scientists discover new pathway to potential therapies for advanced prostate cancer

UT Southwestern Medical Center researchers have narrowed the potential drug targets for advanced prostate cancer by demonstrating that late-stage tumors are driven by a different hormonal pathway than was thought previously.

While testosterone is generally known to stimulate the growth of the disease, advanced prostate cancer that is resistant to standard hormonal therapy actually… UT Southwestern scientists discover new pathway to potential therapies for advanced prostate cancer
