Researchers Identify a New Subtype of Advanced Prostate Cancer

A PCF-funded study published in the prestigious journal Science has identified a new subtype of castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC). Understanding how genes and proteins “drive” this particular type of cancer may lead to new treatments. In the early stages, prostate cancer cells are driven by androgens (e.g., testosterone), which naturally. Read More
