Multiregion Sequencing of Localized Prostate Cancer
|Study ID||Alternative Stable ID||Type|
Ten patients with treatment-naïve, locally advanced or localized prostate cancer underwent radical prostatectomy. Pathological stage ranged from T2aN0 to T3bN1, and Gleason scores from 3+4 to 4+5. Tumor foci were mapped, and DNA was extracted from multiple (5-9) regions from a single, contiguous index focus. Whole exome sequencing was performed to identify single nucleotide variants and indels, and low coverage whole genome sequencing was performed to estimate copy number variation. Phylogenetic relationships between foci was determined, and alterations associated with advanced disease or response to targeted therapy were identified.
