Abstract : The most significant finding of this research study during this period is the validation of resistance to fluid shear stress as a biomarker of prostate cancer cells. This initial finding has been published. Additional efforts have been undertaken to detect this biomarker in circulating tumor cells from blood samples from prostate cancer patients. This involves the development of methods to achieve this goal.
