Early origins of prostate cancer

Project Description

This project explores whether changes in hormone levels immediately after birth increases the risk of a man developing prostate cancer as he gets older.  If this can be shown, it will dramatically increase our understanding of what might cause prostate cancer and potentially lead to new diagnostic tests or new treatment procedures.
