Identification of gene defects helps treatment of prostate cancer

The current method of treating prostate cancer involves identifying gene defects, which could help with the diagnosis of cancer and the development of individualized cancer treatments for patients. Researchers are studying the molecular biology of prostate cancer; the goal is to obtain a holistic picture of the disease’s mechanisms and use those mechanisms as a basis for developing new treatments….
