This article will not make our day as to what it might say in our fight to beat PCa.  This also may lead to methologies that trigger how to manipulate receptors (like AR-V7) that can unlock the future cures for PCa, so we hope John Hopkins and other leading research folks do very well on our behalfs.

Hi Zufus,

Interesting article. It still amazes me that this diesease is primarily an attack of the body on itself.
