Mayo Clinic discovers biological markers that could guide treatment for prostate cancer

By Susan Buckles susanbuckles

Prostate cancer is the most common form of cancer in American men, other than skin cancer.*  Statistics from the American Cancer Society  show approximately 1 in 9 American men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer at some time in their lives.  Mayo Clinic Center for Individualized Medicine-sponsored research released today may help families facing difficult […]

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

By 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 […]

Liquid biopsies: detecting and treating cancer sooner

By Sharon Rosen sharonhrosen

What if a blood test could discover cancer before a tumor first appears or before the first signs of cancer recurrence are seen by a radiology study? In fact, these types of blood tests, often called liquid biopsies, are already changing clinical care for patients with cancer. Researchers and physicians in Mayo Clinic Center for […]

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 […]
