Nelson team discovers genetic mistakes that may advance prostate cancer

Peter Nelson and colleagues at UW complete first comprehensive assessment of DNA errors that may drive lethal, treatment-resistant disease

Oct. 3, 2011 | By Kristen Woodward

A team of researchers at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and University of Washington has conducted the first comprehensive assessment of every gene in the genome of advanced, lethal prostate cancer. Until now, the genetic composition of such tumors had been poorly defined. In the process, they have discovered a number of potential key drivers—recurrent genetic mistakes—common to advanced prostate cancer that may contribute to disease progression.
