New prostate cancer treatment could be on the horizon, say UK researchers: ‘Tremendously exciting’

Prostate cancer patients could have a new treatment on the horizon.

A new study published in the journal Nature has found that for some patients with treatment-resistant prostate cancer, a new process can “block” the messages that cancer uses to “hijack” white blood cells.

In early clinical trials, researchers from The Institute of Cancer Research in the U.K. found that this process made advanced prostate cancers more treatable, “shrinking tumors or halting their growth,” according to a press release from the university.

Prostate cancer is the leading cancer diagnosis among men, and about one in every 41 men will die of the disease, according to the American Cancer Society (ACS).
