Scientists have identified a gene mutation in the tumours of men with prostate cancer that is linked to very poor survival—and which could be used to pick out patients for more intensive treatment. Men with mutations in the retinoblastoma gene in their tumours were more than three times as likely to die and nearly seven times as likely to relapse on standard treatments as those without th...

The researchers envision that this discovery may eventually result in a test that contributes to a more personalised treatment of the disease. Prostate cancer is the most common male cancer in Sweden. App...

In addition, over the stu...

The patients treated had no signs of serious adverse events and samples of their blood contained markers of immune activation—an early indication that the vaccine could activate immune cells to fight colorectal tumors and metastases. Further tests to determine if th...
