Prostate cancer prognosis may be predicted by measuring levels of beta-catenin

An article in the International Journal of Cancer has surmised that low nuclear levels of beta-catenin in localized prostate cancer are indicative of a poorer prognosis. This relationship is due to beta-catenin's effect of androgen receptor activity. Testing also showed that the highest beta-catenin levels were present in patients with advanced cancer followed by patients with localized cancer and then those with benign cancer.
