Study Links High Receptor Levels to Reduced Survival in Diabetic Prostate Cancer Patients
High levels of the androgen receptor protein may play a role in the lower survival rate of men with both type 2 diabetes and prostate cancer, a study reports. The research, “Androgen receptor overexpression in prostate cancer in type 2 diabetes,” was published in the journal Molecular Metabolism. Contrary to what occurs in other diseases, men with type 2 diabetes do not have a higher incidence of prostate cancer. In fact, studies have shown they have a lower incidence. When men with type 2 diabetes do develop the cancer, however, their survival rate is sign
