Researchers from Monash University and the Cancer Council Victoria have used genetic sequencing to identify three genes that are linked to aggressive forms of prostate cancer. The research found that genetic alterations in three key genes are linked to men who have a strong family history of the cancer, which kills about 60 Australian men each week. Dr Tu Nguyen-Dumont of the Monash School of Clinical Sciences says that identifying men who are more likely to develop the aggressive form of prostate cancer will in turn enable those who require urgent treatment to be identified.
