New Tool to Determine the Risk of Prostate Cancer Death

12 days ago − University of Copenhagen The Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences
Researchers at the University of Copenhagen have identified a new prognostic biomarker: the neuropeptide pro-NPY, which may help determine the risk of dying from prostate cancer. This particular type of protein is very specific to prostate cancer cells and could help identify whether newly diagnosed patients require radical prostatectomy surgery or if it is safe to delay surgery. The research has been published in the journal, European Urology.…
