Prostate cancer hijacks tumor cell biorhythm to evade hormone therapy – BIOENGINEER.ORG

Hormone therapy is successful at keeping metastatic prostate cancer under control, but eventually the tumor cells become resistant to it. An unexpected potential solution has now emerged in medicines not designed to fight cancer, but to target proteins that regulate a cell’s circadian rhythm. Hormone therapy is successful at keeping metastatic prostate cancer under control, … Read more
