Study finds more than 40 percent of prostate biopsies could be avoided with new blood test
(Cleveland Clinic) A multi-center study that validates the clinical performance of IsoPSA -- a new blood test that has proven to be more accurate in predicting overall risk of prostate cancer than standard prostate-specific antigen (PSA) -- will be presented during the AUA Annual Meeting this weekend in San Francisco. Results suggest that use of IsoPSA may substantially reduce the need for biopsy, and may thus lower the likelihood of overdetection and overtreatment of nonlethal prostate cancer.

Oncologists in Spain are recruiting patients for the randomized phase of the pleural mesothelioma clinical trial involving ONCOS-102, the promising immunotherapy vaccine. Optimism surrounding the trial stems from encouraging results obtained recently in the six-patient safety cohort used as a precautionary lead-in. The trial involves the vaccine in combination with standard-of-care chemotherapy for patients with inoperable disease. ONCOS-102 is a scientifically engineered adenovirus that is designed to activate a patient’s immune system to selectively target cancer cells. It is being developed by Targovax, a Scandina...
