Prostate Cancer

Video Description

NBC 4 news explores the breakthrough cancer research done at The Ohio State University’s Comprehensive Cancer Center. With improved treatments, many patients are living longer. However this sometimes means more patients end up suffering from bone metastases.  In prostate cancer, this bone growth can be very harmful. Only two species develop prostate cancer, humans and dogs. Dr. Tom Rosol’s research, conducted in part of the OSU Veterinary Hospital, isolated the protein involved in this bone growth. In the future, research on prostate cancer may help develop more bone mass for those with osteoporosis.
