AR-V7 Mutation Detection Kit
Prostate cancer is one of the most common malignant tumors of the urinary system. Androgen receptor (AR) plays an important role in the occurrence and development of prostate cancer. It promotes the progression and metastasis of prostate cancer by regulating the expression of downstream genes. The mainstay of treatment for advanced prostate cancer is endocrine therapy, known as androgen deprivation therapy (ADT).

The FDA has approved abiraterone, a CYP17A1 inhibitor, and enzalutamide, a potent anti-androgen, as second-line treatments for metastatic prostate cancer, but during treatment, prostate cancer often develops drug resistance and progresses to castration Resistant prostate cancer (CRPC). AR-V7-negative patients treated with abiraterone and enzalutamide had significantly shorter clinical or radiographic progression-free survival and overall survival than AR-V7-positive patients. Studies have shown that AR-V7 is involved in the development of resistance to abiraterone and enzalutamide. The AR-V7 mutation detection kit independently developed by MEDx Translational Medicine based on dPCR platform is used for AR-V7 detection.
