Access PROSTOX Testing
Understanding your PROSTOX results
Once your results are ready, you will need to discuss them with a physician.
People being treated with SBRT for prostate cancer have on average a 15-20% chance of experiencing late GU side effects following SBRT. PROSTOX tests a patient's DNA and risk stratifies them - PROSTOX can determine if they are at a High risk or Low risk of developing late GU toxicities.If a patient is found to be High risk, they have an 80% chance of developing late GU toxicity, whereas if they are Low risk they have only a 4% risk of late GU toxicity.1,2,3
