Prostate Cancer Part of New Non-Invasive Technique Bearing Results For Metastatic Cancer Imaging
shutterstock_173060636Researchers from Virginia Commonwealth University Massey Cancer Center, VCU Institute of Molecular Medicine and Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions established a non-invasive method for detecting prostate cancer both localized or spread and metastasized to soft tissues and bone, using preclinical animal models of metastatic prostate cancer. This study is a proof-of-principle of this imaging method that, in the near future, may enable imaging and detection in a non-invasive way and in real-time -- not only for prostate cancer, but for a wide variety of other cancers as well. This study, entitled AEG-1 promoter-mediated imaging of prostate cancer," was published on the Online First edition of the journal Cancer Research, a journal of the American Association for Cancer Research, by first author Dr. Akrita Bhatnagar from Dr. Martin
