This system works by injecting a patient with a radionuclide tracer (a compound. Read More

Progress Report: Gerhardt Attard, MD, Ph.D

Investigator: Gerhardt Attard, MD, PhD – Assistant Professor, Institute for Cancer Research, Royal Marsden Hospital, London Predicting Resistance to Abiraterone: Molecular Analysis of CTCs First-line treatment for recurrent prostate cancer involves blockade of male hormone (testosterone; androgen) production in a process known as androgen deprivation therapy (ADT). Androgens are synthesized. Read More

Progress Report: Mohamed Simon Arredouani, Ph.D

Investigator: Mohamed Simon Arredouani, PhD – Assistant Professor, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center Advances in Prostate Cancer Immunotherapy The immune system protects humans and other mammals from disease by recognizing foreign invaders such as bacteria and viruses. It is also thought that tumor cells express molecules foreign to the patient. Read More
