Molecular Cytogenetics of Prostate Cancer

要約

Prostate cancer is the most common malignancy among men in many developed countries. One-fourth of prostate cancers are diagnosed at metastatic stage but there is no curative treatment for such disease and palliative androgen withdrawal therapy remains the most used one. Thus, understanding the molecular events that underlie the development and progression of prostate cancer could help to answer many clinical questions on its treatment. In this review article, I want to illustrate some of the most interesting findings (by fluorescence in situ hybridization and comparative genomic hybridization) in the molecular cytogenetics of prostate cancer.
