In this paper, we consider the role of the genetics of inflammation in the pathophysiology of prostate cancer (PCa). This paper is not an extensive review of the literature, rather it is an expert opinion based on data from authors’ laboratories on age-related diseases and inflammation. The aim is the detection of a risk profile that potentially allows both the early identification of individuals at risk for disease and the possible discovery of potential targets for medication. In fact, a… CONTINUE READING
