Andrew J. Stephenson, MD, director for the Center of Urologic Oncology at the Cleveland Clinic, discusses the development of biomarkers for patients with prostate cancer.

It is important to develop tools to predict how patients are going to react to treatments, explains Stephenson.

Additionally, this can lead to higher rates of patient satisfaction, states Stephenson.
