Did You Know That Metastatic Prostate Cancer Causes DNA Mutations?

Men with metastatic prostate cancer have higher rates of inherited gene mutations than men with non-metastatic prostate cancer.  Knowing about DNA mutations might help you make better treatment decisions. And you can also tell family members about their risk. Recent studies have shown that metastatic prostate cancer inherited mutations in the DNA-repair genes, such as the BRCA gene, can help [...]

Myriad Genetics Attempts To Deny Patients Their Personal Genetic Information

 In 2013, Myriad Genetic failed – in a case that was heard in the United States Supreme Court - to patent the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes.  We all have these two genes which, when they mutate, are associated with breast, ovarian and prostate cancers. If Myriad succeeded, they would have controlled patents on these genes [...]

Understanding How Personalized Medicine Is Developed By Way Of A Real Situation – Olaparib

It is common knowledge that men with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) don’t all have the same disease. There are many different types or flavors of prostate cancer. These differences are involved in the genetic structure of the cancer cell its self. Some prostate cancers have mutations in the DNA repair genes (genes whose job [...]
