A novel stratification framework for predicting outcome in patients with prostate cancer

In all the madness I forgot to post about our latest publication published last Friday: A novel stratification framework for predicting outcome in patients with prostate cancer. Found in the British Journal of Cancer. 

We have discovered why some prostate cancers are more aggressive, spread to different parts of the body, and ultimately cause death.

Recently we developed a test to distinguish aggressive prostate cancers from less threatening forms of the disease, by applying some complex maths known as Latent Process Decomposition, that will help avoid sometimes-damaging unnecessary treatment. This aggressive form of prostate cancer is known as DESNT - which has the worst clinical outcomes for patients. In this study we carry on this work and studied gene expression levels in 1,785 prostate cancer tumour samples.

We show how the number of ‘aggressive’ cells in a tumour sample defines how quickly the disease will progress and spread. The more DESNT cells, the quicker the patient is likely to progress. We also revealed three new subtypes of prostate cancer that could be used to stratify patients for different treatments.

The research was funded by the Bob Champion Cancer Trust, the Masonic Charitable Foundation, the King Family, the Hargrave Foundation, and UEA, with support from Movember, Prostate Cancer UK, Callum Barton and from the Andy Ripley Memorial Fund.

Development of a multivariable risk model integrating urinary cell DNA methylation & cell-free RNA data for the detection of significant prostate cancer

New paper out today in "The Prostate"

"Development of a multivariable risk model integrating urinary cell DNA methylation & cell-free RNA data for the detection of significant prostate cancer"

This carries on from the work last year on a urine test called ‘PUR’ (Prostate Urine Risk) which diagnoses aggressive prostate cancer and predicts whether patients will require treatment up to five years earlier than standard clinical methods.

This latest research combines information from two different levels of biological data in urine (methylation and gene expression) and shows the possibilities of further improves in a urine tests use for diagnosis.

What I really like about this one is the robust machine learning techniques we've used and the alignment to the TRIPOD guidelines.

Great work led by my PhD student Shea O'Connell.

Funded mainly by Movember and The Andy Ripley Memorial Fund.
