Mutations in KLK6 Gene Region Can Predict Risk of Aggressive Disease in Prostate Cancer Patients

Mutations in KLK6 Gene Region Can Predict Risk of Aggressive Disease in Prostate Cancer Patients
Genetic mapping of the Kallikrein 6, or KLK6, gene region — which could be a hotspot for the occurrence of prostate cancer-associated mutations — may help doctors identify which patients are at risk of developing an aggressive form of the disease, according to Canadian researchers. Their study, “Germline Mutations in the Kallikrein 6 Region and Predisposition for Aggressive Prostate Cancer,” recently appeared in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. "As a
