A new study from scientists at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and the University of Washington suggests metastatic prostate cancer may present just the pair of characteristics needed for precision oncology: Metastases from different patients varied widely in their genetic characteristics, and metastases within a single patient were remarkably similar.
Hutchinson Center researchers and Duke University colleagues discover a genomic signature that may allow doctors to individualize therapy for men with metastatic prostate cancer

Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center researchers Drs. Elahe Mostaghel and Peter Nelson and colleagues at Duke University’s Institute for Genome Sciences & Policy authored a paper announcing the discovery of a genomic signature that may ultimately allow doctors to individualize therapy for men with aggressive prostate cancer that has metastasized to other organs.
