Chromosomal changes in locally recurrent, hormone-refractory prostate carcinomas by karyotyping and comparative genomic hybridization.

Abstract

The genetic mechanisms of prostate cancer recurrence during hormonal therapy are largely unknown. So far, data from conventional karyotype analysis on hormone-refractory prostate carcinomas have not been published, mainly because of the difficulties in obtaining fresh hormone-refractory prostate carcinoma samples and getting metaphases from them. Here, we… (More)
