Germline mutations in ATM and BRCA1/2 genes could help predict death risk from aggressive prostate cancer

Germline mutations in ATM and BRCA1/2 genes could help predict death risk from aggressive prostate cancer

A study of three genes associated with the development of prostate cancer found that men with inherited mutations in these genes are more likely to develop aggressive forms of the disease and die from prostate cancer at an earlier age than those without the mutations. [More]

A researcher at Birmingham City University is undertaking research into the social and cognitive barriers hindering men who have sex with other men (MSM) from finding out more information about sexually transmitted infections (STIs). [More]
New technique uses focused ultrasound to detect cancer biomarkers in the blood

New technique uses focused ultrasound to detect cancer biomarkers in the blood

Each year, thousands of Canadian men with prostate cancer undergo biopsies to help their doctors better understand the progression and nature of their disease. It provides vital, sometimes life-saving information, yet cancer researcher John Lewis knows it can be a difficult test to ask of anyone. [More]
