2019 NOV 06 (NewsRx) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Cancer Daily -- Data detailed on Oncology - Prostate Cancer have been presented. According to news reporting out of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, by NewsRx editors, the research stated, “The management of high-risk prostate cancer is evolving. Currently, most decisions are based on traditional factors such as tumor grade and stage.”

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from the University of Oklahoma, “However, we are in a state of evolution. A new understanding of the value of both genetic and somatic germline testing is upon us.”

According to the news editors, the research concluded: “Perhaps even more exciting is the recognition that genomic testing can and should be moved up in certain high-risk patients so more effective and targeted therapy can be applied earlier in the disease state.”

For more information on this research see: Urology perspective on the expanding world of germline testing for prostate cancer. The Canadian Journal of Urology, 2019;26(5S2):5-6.
