Summary for Patent: 10,196,696
Title:RNA-biomarkers for diagnosis of prostate cancer
Abstract: The invention relates to the identification and selection of differentially expressed transcripts (biomarker) in tumour cells. Specific determination of the level of these biomarkers can be used for screening and diagnosis of prostate cancer. Clinical application of assays based on these biomarker help reduce the high number of false positives of current standard screening assays.

Application Number:15/100,949
Patent Claims:1. A method for the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer comprising the steps of a) detecting the expression level of a nucleic acid according to SEQ ID NO: 12 in a sample from a patient, wherein the detection of the expression level is performed by next generation sequencing, b) diagnosing the subject as prostate cancer positive when the expression level difference between said patient sample and a control sample is at least 2 fold .+-.20%, and c) treating the prostate cancer positive subject with one or more prostate cancer therapeutic agents selected from the group consisting of Docetaxel, Cabazitaxel, Mitoxan-trone, Estramustine, Doxorubicin, etoposide, Vinblastine, Paclitaxel, Carboplatin, Abiraterone acetate, Bicalutamide, Casodes, Degarelix, Enzalutamide, Goserelin acetate, Leuprolide acetate, Prednisone, Sipuleucel-T, Radium 223 dichloride and Vinorelbine.

2. The method according to claim 1, wherein the sample is selected from the group comprising prostate tissue, biopsy material, lymph nodes, urine, ejaculate, blood, blood serum, blood plasma, circulating tumor cells in blood or lymph, any tissue derived or obtainable from a patient suspected of containing metastases as well as any biological source that may contain prostate tumor cells or parts thereof, wherein said parts comprise vesicles like exosomes, micro vesicles, and others as well as free or protein-bound RNA molecules derived from prostate tumor cells.

3. The method according to claim 1, wherein the sample is a urine sample.

4. The method according to claim 1, wherein the next generation sequencing is performed by measuring the fluorescence of a labelled primer, labelled probe or a fluorescent detection agent.

5. The method according to claim 1, wherein the next generation sequencing is performed by qRT-PCR.
