Physician Blog

Introduction: This year’s LUGPA theme centers on re-imagining the practice of Urology. What better time than now to discover how incorporating genetic testing into your practice can provide you with customized and clinically actionable information to personalize prostate cancer care.

Prolaris now has 2 validated thresholds to make treatment decisions easier

Prolaris is a prognostic, tumor-based biomarker test that measures the aggressiveness of your patient’s prostate tumor. Combining tumor aggressiveness with traditional, diagnostic features like PSA, Gleason, and tumor stage, Prolaris is helping urologists everywhere personalize cancer care. Our easy-to-read, customized results will help you determine who can safely pursue active surveillance, who needs treatment, who can benefit from ADT + RT and who can safely avoid these treatments.

Watch the video below to see how the Prolaris test results can customize your prostate cancer care.

Why EVERY MAN needs Prolaris

Every cancer is different. One major aspect of cancer is that the affected cells are growing at an accelerated rate, but how quickly the cancer grows, depends on the individual. The genes that provide information on the rate of cancer cell growth are called Cell Cycle Proliferation Genes (CCP). The Prolaris test looks at these unique CCP genes to help clarify your patient’s cancer aggressiveness, providing you unparalleled genetic insights and giving you confidence to customize each patient’s treatment.
