Study: New Approach May Boost Prostate Cancer Immunotherapies
Cedars-Sinai

Researchers have discovered a new way to transform the tissues surrounding prostate tumors to help the body's immune cells fight the cancer. The discovery, made in human and mouse cells and in laboratory mice, could lead to improvements in immunotherapy treatments for prostate cancer, the second most common cancer in men in the U.S.

Men with Low Health Literacy Less Likely to Choose Active Surveillance for Prostate Cancer After Tumor Profiling
University of Illinois at Chicago

Tumor gene profiling is a tool that can help patients with a cancer diagnosis make informed decisions about treatment. In predominantly white populations, among men with early stage, favorable-risk prostate cancer, these tools have been shown to increase patient acceptance of active surveillance — a common, evidence-based approach to monitor the tumor before a more aggressive treatment, like surgery or radiation.
