Scientists develop highly specific ERG monoclonal antibody for detecting common oncogenic alterations in prostate cancer.

Bethesda, Maryland--Researchers at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USU) Center for Prostate Disease Research (CPDR), in collaboration with investigators at the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology and Walter Reed Army Medical Center have developed a highly specific assay for the detection of ERG oncoprotein that is regulated by prevalent gene fusions present in over half of all prostate cancers. These findings are reported in the advanced online publication of Prostate Cancer and Prostatic Diseases (Nature Publishing Group, June 29), "ERG oncoprotein expression in prostate cancer: clonal progression of ERG-positive tumor cells and potential for ERG-based stratification."
