Team Uses Affy's OncoScan to Develop Prostate Cancer Prognostic Signature, Envisions Clinical Use | GenomeWeb

A team of researchers has identified a gene signature that could be used to predict a prostate cancer patient's metastasis-free survival at the time of diagnosis.

Using genomic information obtained from tumor samples via Affymetrix's OncoScan FFPE Express service paired with an internally designed algorithm, the researchers claim they can provide clinicians with a metastatic potential score to determine whether aggressive treatment of prostate cancer is necessary.
