More studies, preferably multicenter, evaluating these prognostic markers in well-defined patient cohorts are required to understand the importance of TMPRSS2 translocation with clinically significant disease. 26 A recently described LNCaP cell model has identified a novel mechanism for the development of a TMPRSS2 translocation in prostate cancer [5]. By subjecting LNCaP cells to both androgens (dihydrotesterone, DHT) and irradiation (IR), several gene fusions including TMPRSS2-ERGb were induced.
