- Allelic loss at 8p22-p23 was significantly more frequent in clinical prostate cancer (CPC) than in incidental prostate cancer and in pT4 CPC than in earlier-stage CPC. (16470536)
- Deletion of 8p is an important event in both the initiation and metastasis of prostate cancer.
- The extremely high frequency of LOH at 8p22-23.1 in high-grade tumors suggests the existence of a novel putative tumor-suppressor gene associated with the progression of prostate cancer.
