A new treatment strategy for prostate cancer
Dr Robert Day at the Université de Sherbrooke provided the first proof of concept that blocking a protein called PACE4 stops prostate cancer growth in mice. Anti-PACE4 therapy triggered prostate cancer cells to die and shrank tumours by 60%. A new collaboration is now advancing clinical testing and commercialization.
