Mayo Clinic researchers find genetic pathways to individualized treatment for advanced prostate cancer

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Researchers at Mayo Clinic Center for Individualized Medicine have uncovered genetic clues to why tumors resist a specific therapy used for treating advanced prostate cancer. This discovery can guide health care providers to individualized treatments for castration-resistant prostate cancer, a deadly disease that does not respond to standard hormone therapy. Several U.S. Food and Drug […]
