Recurrence-free survival in prostate cancer is related to increased stromal TRAIL expression
TNF-Related Apoptosis-Inducing Ligand
Expression of the components of the pro-apoptotic TRAIL pathway is altered in prostate cancer. Moreover, TRAIL expression in the tumor microenvironment may affect recurrence-free survival rate of prostate cancer patients. Consequently, these results may be useful in devising future therapeutic strategies targeting the TRAIL pathway in prostate cancer.
