Doctors and their patients need tests that can detect life-threatening prostate cancer. Knowing how aggressive the cancer is could help personalize decisions about the next steps in the treatment plan. At AACC's 2013 Annual Meeting, Dimitra Georganopoulou, PhD, Ohmx Corporation, will present results of a pilot study to find a new biomarker—a molecule that can be measured in biological samples to indicate a condition or disease—for prostate cancer aggressiveness. Tests for an "aggressiveness biomarker" would provide critical information for making decisions about when clinical treatment should occur or when it could be postponed. The findings from this study could lead to the development of a new tool to use along with existing screening tests to assist doctors and patients in treatment decisions.

Immediately knowing the results of a medical test can be convenient and useful to both patients and physicians. These "point-of-care" tests conducted at or near the site of patient care (home, office, or bedside) can allow the patient and his or her treatment team to more quickly
