Miraca Life Sciences Offers Webinars on PTEN and ERG Testing
Date:10/31/2013

Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) October 31, 2013

In November, Miraca Life Sciences (MLS) will offer a series of webinars demonstrating the value of molecular markers, such as PTEN and ERG in the diagnosing and prognostication of prostate cancer. These molecular markers offer additional insight beyond what a traditional prostate biopsy can provide.

  • PTEN is a prognostic marker that helps to identify indolent versus aggressive prostate cancers.
  • Combined PTEN loss and ERG overexpression status are indicators of aggressive disease.
  • ERG overexpression is highly specific to prostate carcinoma, and in proper clinical context, supports the diagnosis of prostate cancer

Complimentary webinars are offered at the following times:

  • Monday, November 4th 8:00 a.m. CST
https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/180664369

  • Wednesday, November 6th 11:00 a.m. CST
https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/243247928

  • Friday, November 8th 5:00 p.m. CST

  • Saturday, November 9th 10:00 a.m. CST
https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/382602553

According to the American Cancer Society (ACS), prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in men, with one case diagnosed in every six men. The ACS estimates about 240,000 men will be diagnosed with the disease in 2013.
