2020 MAR 19 (NewsRx) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Clinical Oncology Daily -- Researchers detail new data in Oncology - Prostate Cancer. According to news reporting originating from Toronto, Canada, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, “DNA sequencing has identified recurrent mutations that drive the aggressiveness of prostate cancers. Surprisingly, the influence of genomic, epigenomic, and transcriptomic dysregulation on the tumor proteome remains poorly understood.”

Funders for this research include Prostate Cancer Canada, Canadian Institutes of Health Research, Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, Canada Foundation for Innovation, Movember Foundation, Government of Canada, Ontario Genomics Institute, Canadian Cancer Society, National Cancer Institute Early Detection Research Network, Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.

Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from Ontario Institute for Cancer Research, “We profiled the genomes, epigenomes, transcriptomes, and proteomes of 76 localized, intermediate-risk prostate cancers. We discovered that the genomic subtypes of prostate cancer converge on five proteomic subtypes, with distinct clinical trajectories. ETS fusions, the most common alteration in prostate tumors, affect different genes and pathways in the proteome and transcriptome. Globally, mRNA abundance changes explain only 10% of protein abundance variability.”

According to the news editors, the research concluded: “As a result, prognostic biomarkers combining genomic or epigenomic features with proteomic ones significantly outperform biomarkers comprised of a single data type.”
