Michael Marrone - Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, USA

Dr Marrone speaks with ecancer at AACR 2017 about screening for prostate cancer in men, and the link to glycemic function.

He describes an analysis of 5000 men from a large, long-term population study, which revealed associations between glycemic score on 3 biomarkers and risk of prostate.

Dr Marrone summarises the significance of risks for differing biomarker groups, with some reaching clinical significance and a 3-fold increase of risk, and the overall importance of glycemic control.
