Germline mutations and mismatch repair genes implicated in prostate cancer

A recent study revealed evidence on the genetic basis of prostate cancer (PCa) predisposition and the importance of germline genetic testing for patients with a positive family history of PCa or men with high-risk or metastatic disease. A systemic review was conducted and the results of this study were published in the journal, Prostate Cancer and Prostatic Diseases.
