Prostate Cancer

News and reporting on prostate cancer.

Researchers from the PROREPAIR-B study reported that men with germline BRCA2 mutations and prostate cancer had shorter cause-specific survival.

Investigators showed that sequencing cell-free DNA could detect microsatellite instability, structural rearrangements, and clonal hematopoiesis in patients with metastatic disease.

A phylogenetic analysis that included multiple samples per patient suggests overlapping driver mutations make their way into multiple metastases in each patient.

A new trial has compared the two most prominent tests, showing that both have clear predictive ability, but leaving several other questions unanswered so far.

Exome sequencing on tumors from metastatic, castration-resistant prostate cancer cases responding to immunotherapy led to homologous recombination defects.

In a pan-cancer analysis, Lynch syndrome genes were mutated more often than anticipated in tumors with high or intermediate levels of microsatellite instability.

Informaticians at Spain's National Cancer Research Centre develop a methodology for evaluating likely drug efficacy based on specific patient genotypes.

The updated recommendations discuss testing for DNA repair gene mutations, MSI-H, and dMMR, as well as germline testing and counseling.

Results of a new study offer preliminary evidence that blood tests could select patients for treatment, and track response and resistance.
