The researchers used 10X Genomics' linked-read genome sequencing approach to home in on rearrangements that affect the androgen receptor locus and its enhancer.

Using data for more than 140,000 individuals, researchers narrowed in on 63 new prostate cancer-associated loci and established a polygenic score linked to enhanced risk.

A new trial has compared the two most prominent tests, showing that both have clear predictive ability, but leaving several other questions unanswered so far.

The agreement grants MDxHealth the rights to manufacture and market the phosphodiesterase-4D7 biomarker as a prognostic test.

Exome sequencing on tumors from metastatic, castration-resistant prostate cancer cases responding to immunotherapy led to homologous recombination defects.

In a pan-cancer analysis, Lynch syndrome genes were mutated more often than anticipated in tumors with high or intermediate levels of microsatellite instability.

Informaticians at Spain's National Cancer Research Centre develop a methodology for evaluating likely drug efficacy based on specific patient genotypes.

A University of Michigan-led team found that the lncRNA ARLNC1 forms a feedback loop with the androgen receptor to promote progression in prostate cancer.
