Study Description

Prostate cancer is a highly heterogeneous disease that is thought to develop over many years. Identifying the earliest somatic changes can give important insights into the tumour evolution and aid in stratifying high- from low-risk diseases. Here we pursued integrative whole-genome, transcriptome and methylome-based analysis of early-onset prostate cancer patients. Characterisation of genomic alterations across 270 PCa tumours revealed age-related genomic alterations and mutation signatures including BRCAness and APOBEC. We used methylation- and expression-data to identify four molecular subgroups, which included a highly aggressive tumour subgroup that frequently involved recurrent duplications and increased expression of ESRP1. Analysis of 12,000 tissue-microarray tumour samples demonstrated that ESRP1 is a candidate biomarker associated with faster proliferation rate and shorter time to relapse. We combine the patterns of molecular co-occurrence, risk-stratification and subgroup information to deconvolute tumor heterogeneity, which reveal complex but recurrent clinical ... (Show More)
