Researchers Use Computer Model To Predict Prostate Cancer

An international team of cancer researchers from Denmark and Germany has used cancer patient data to develop a computer model that can predict the progression of prostate cancer. The model is currently being implemented at a prostate cancer clinic in Germany. The researchers have also found an enzyme that appears to trigger some of the first mutations in prostate cancer.

New Computer Model Helps Predict Prostate Cancer

How does a normal cell turn into deadly cancer? Seeking an answer to this question, and working alongside other international working groups, researchers from Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin examined the tumor genomes of nearly 300 prostate cancer patients.

Men with IBD Have Higher Prostate Cancer Risk

Men with inflammatory bowel disease have four to five times higher risk of being diagnosed with prostate cancer, reports a 20-year study from Northwestern Medicine. This is the first report to show men with inflammatory bowel disease have higher than average PSA (prostate-specific antigen) values, and this group also has a significantly higher risk of potentially dangerous prostate cancer

A New Therapeutic Target for Metastatic and Resistant Prostate Cancers

Prostate Cancer researchers from the Bellvitge Biomedical Research Institute (IDIBELL), led by Dr. Álvaro Aytés report a new combined therapy to fight the most aggressive and resistant prostate cancers. The team, which has just published its results in Nature Communications, also includes researchers from the Catalan Institute of Oncology, Columbia University in New York and the University of Bern in Switzerland
