A Study to Identify Genetic Markers in Non-Cancerous Prostate Tissues, and Compare to Better Identify the Markers Unique to Prostate Cancer


About this study

The purpose of this study is to identify DNA methylation (genetic) markers in non-cancerous prostate tissue, and compare with the markers previously found to be in prostate cancer tissue. This will provide data that can be used to identify genetic marker profiles to diagnose and provide prognosis for prostate cancer.
