AACR 2024 | Serum thymidine kinase 1 as a predicative biomarker in prostate cancer

Teemu Murtola, MD, PhD, University of Tampere, Tampere, Finland, discusses the potential of serum thymidine kinase 1 (TK1) as a predictive marker for castration resistance in metastatic prostate cancer. Patients with metastatic prostate cancer undergoing androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) had their serum STK1 levels measured before and 6 months after starting ADT, and within 6 months before the development of castration resistance. Serum STK1 was found to be correlated to progression in patients 6 months after starting ADT. This interview took place at American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting 2024 in San Diego, CA.
