Researchers at International Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology Discuss Findings in Prostate Cancer (Emerging proteomics biomarkers and prostate cancer burden in Africa)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Cancer Weekly -- Research findings on Oncology - Prostate Cancer are discussed in a new report. According to news reporting out of Cape Town, South Africa, by NewsRx editors, research stated, "Various biomarkers have emerged via high throughput omics-based approaches for use in diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring of prostate cancer. Many of these have yet to be demonstrated as having value in routine clinical practice."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from International Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology, "Moreover, there is a dearth of information on validation of these emerging prostate biomarkers within African cohorts, despite the huge burden and aggressiveness of prostate cancer in men of African descent. This review focusses of the global landmark achievements in prostate cancer proteomics biomarker discovery and the potential for clinical implementation of these biomarkers in Africa."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Biomarker validation processes at the preclinical, translational and clinical research level are discussed here, as are the challenges and prospects for the evaluation and use of novel proteomic prostate cancer biomarkers."
