Biomarker Predicts Aggressive Prostate Cancer

2014 04 Oct

A new study has identified a biomarker living beside the KLK3 gene that can predict which GS7 prostate cancer patients will have a more aggressive form of cancer, according to a Science Newsline report. The KLK3 gene is located on chromosome 19 and is responsible for encoding the prostate-specific antigen (PSA). Results of the study published in... Read more
