  • Aims and objectives of this session

    Individualized therapy in prostate cancer should be based on our knowledge about overexpressed oncogenes. The session will highlight importance of the transcription factor ERG and cytokines which may be targeted in experimental models and in clinical settings. Furthermore, the speakers will address issues related to scientific background of radiation therapy in prostate cancer.
