Progress Report: Atish Choudhury, MD, Ph.D

Investigator: Atish Choudhury, MD, PhD – Assistant Professor, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute Molecular Determinants of Hormone Refractory Prostate Cancer Metastatic prostate cancer initially responds to androgen deprivation therapy (ADT; blockade of male hormones such as testosterone) resulting in tumor regression and improved clinical performance. This is because prostate cancer cell growth. Read More
