Prostate cancer is one of the top four most common cancers globally. The increased use of testing has led to a greater number of cases being detected and requiring treatment. New treatment shows promising outcomes for men diagnosed with low or immediate-risk prostate cancer.

This article looks at cancer-stromal cell fusion and how this can be analyzed using fluorescence. In many cancers, not all areas of the tumor are the same; this is said to be “heterogeneous”. This is a process that occurs progressively. This can arise through genomic alterations (mutations and chromosomal alterations) acquired by tumor cells.

Study finds abnormal alternative RNA splicing patterns in aggressive prostate cancerAggressive forms of prostate cancer don't act the way they should, hanging on to genetic materials called introns that should be thrown away, a new six-year study led by Dean Tang, Ph.D., and Song Liu, Ph.D., of Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center has revealed.

Higher levels of specific gene can indicate better prognosis in prostate cancerThe most common form of cancer in older men is prostate cancer. In many cases the tumor grows slowly and can be treated effectively, but it is sometimes more aggressive and becomes terminal.

It is also the second most common cause of cancer-related deaths. Despite improved treatments for prostate cancer, many patients with advanced disease eventually develop drug resistance.
