A biomarker that may be a potentially important breakthrough in diagnosing and treating prostate cancer (lat. Prostate Carcinoma) has been discovered by the researchers at the University of Michigan (UniMich). Biomarkers in the body are analogous to the warning lights in cars that signal something might need repairing. In human bodies, they indicate if something’s wrong or if people are about to get sick or if people are predisposed to certain illnesses. The researchers recently discovered a biomarker that they believe achieves this differentiation. Prostate cancer can grow so slowly the carrier dies of natural causes before the cancer spreads, but the deadly form progresses very rapidly.
