What is PROMISE?

PROMISE is an important new research study that brings precision medicine to the fight against prostate cancer. The study is a long-term collaboration between researchers, doctors, and patients to improve knowledge and understanding of the critical role of germline genetic mutations (inherited genes) in men with prostate cancer. (Precision medicine is an approach to tailoring disease prevention and treatment that takes into account differences in people’s genes, environments, and lifestyles, it can be contrasted with a “one size fits all” approach that focuses on an average person without consideration of individual differences)
