Researchers at the Technical University of Munich have discovered they can predict drug resistance in patients with advanced prostate cancer using a new blood test. Read the article here.
A team of researchers from Cleveland Clinic, Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center, Kaiser Permanente Northwest, and other clinical sites have demonstrated that a new blood test known as IsoPSA detects prostate cancer more precisely than current tests in two crucial measures – distinguishing cancer from benign conditions, and identifying patients with high-risk disease.

A pilot study at the Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre determined the feasibility of using multiparametric prostate magnetic resonance imaging as the primary screening test for prostate cancer. Initial results showed that prostate magnetic resonance imaging was better to predict prostate cancer than prostate specific antigen in an unselected sample of the general population.

Every four minutes, prostate cancer kills someone, somewhere around the world. Researchers at Cambridge Oncometrix, are developing a simple test that will detect the disease early. Dmitry Soloviev is one the scientists who’s helping to develop a test that can indicate the presence of cancer cells. Dr. Dmitry is the principal scientist at Oncometrix. Watch his video and learn more about this innovative test and how scientists are working to develop it further. Read the article.
