Oncology Peer Review On-The-Go: Plasma Glutamine as a Prognostic Biomarker in Localized Prostate Cancer

,

On this week’s podcast, Jun Gong, MD, spoke with CancerNetwork® about the potential role of plasma glutamine as a biomarker for patients with localized prostate cancer.

This episode of "Oncology Peer Review On-the-Go" podcast features an examination of an article from the September issue of the journal ONCOLOGY, titled “Plasma Glutamine as a Prognostic Biomarker in Localized Prostate Cancer: Comparison of Conventional Variables in Risk Stratification.” CancerNetwork® spoke with one of the authors of this research, Jun Gong, MD, a practicing medical oncologist who specializes in the treatment of genitourinary cancers at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

Gong detailed the role of prostate-specific antigen levels in prostate cancer and other potential complementary biomarkers. He also discussed some of the significant findings from his research on plasma glutamine, which featured a cohort of over 100 patients with localized prostate cancer.
