Prostate Cancer

News and reporting on prostate cancer.

A Phase II study suggests immune-related expression signatures and other immune markers may help find metastatic prostate cancer cases with better checkpoint blockade response.

Myriad has partnered with Japanese firm SRL, a subsidiary of Miraca Group, to commercialize its BRACAnalysis Diagnostic System in Japan.

The group now states that men with unfavorable intermediate-risk or high-risk disease can consider testing with Myriad's Prolaris or GenomeDx's Decipher.

The company has seen promising activity for the drug in KRAS-mutated metastatic colorectal cancer, and biomarker-defined patient subgroups with castration-resistant prostate cancer and AML.

The foundation-funded initiative from Jackson Laboratories has advanced a model for educating oncologists and providing access to tumor genomic profiling in the community setting.

The FDA granted priority review status to rucaparib for prostate cancer patients with BRCA1/2 mutations.

The LCD will provide coverage for the Decipher Prostate Biopsy genomic test for men with both favorable and unfavorable intermediate-risk prostate cancer. 

Investigators compared expression in different men across the genes from three commercial panels, arguing that the findings highlight important unknowns.

Men with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer who had mutations in genes like BRCA1 and BRCA2 benefited from treatment with olaparib.

Data from an ongoing study suggests that the drug, combined with an androgen receptor signaling inhibitor, may be efficacious in a particularly hard to treat form of prostate cancer.
