The molecular genetics of prostate cancer, the second most common cause of cancer-related death in men, is poorly understood. Inherited factors are believed to account for 42% of the risk of prostate cancer, and although multiple chromosomal loci of susceptibility have been identified, the target genes for these loci have not been well defined. Its heterogeneous nature suggests that the predisposition to prostate cancer may involve multiple genes and variable phenotypic expression. Genes that… CONTINUE READING
