Customizing Individualized Medicine Using Tumor Genomics To Fight Prostate Cancer

By AJ Montpetit ajmontpetit

Researchers at Mayo Clinic, and the Center for Individualized Medicine, have recently been utilizing genomic sequencing to help develop personalized care treatments for men with castration-resistant prostate cancer, a progressive and incurable stage of prostate cancer that no longer responds to hormone therapies that stop or slow testosterone production. “Men with castration-resistant prostate cancer have abysmal […]

Understanding Prostate Cancer, One Man At A Time

By AJ Montpetit ajmontpetit

The Prostate Cancer Medically Optimized Genome-Enhanced Therapy (PROMOTE) study uses genetic clues in castration-resistant prostate cancer (CPRC) that may identify an individualized treatment approach for men with the disease. Those with advanced prostate cancer can have tumors resistant to standard hormone treatments that lower testosterone. Our goal is to improve treatments by using genetic sequencing to uncover […]
