240 - Genomic Based Tests for Personalized Prostate Cancer Care

‐ Mar 22, 2019 1:55pm

Credits: None available.

The genetic basis to prostate cancer has been well established. Within the past several years, it has become evident that mutations and variations within germline DNA predispose to prostate cancer and lethal disease. Knowledge of these mutations can help guide screening, biopsy and treatment decisions. In addition, genomic based tests (e.g. RNA based assays including Oncotype Dx, Prolaris and Decipher) have also become available which can help guide treatment decisions for men considering active surveillance. Some of these tests can help guide decisions for additional therapy after surgery. Together these genomic based tests should be utilized to provide personalized care for prostate cancer.
