The Australian Prostate Cancer BioResource has provided 1100 tissues to research groups across all mainland Australian states over 35 occasions during 2007-2009. The APCB has also conducted a study comparing biomarker expression in tissues derived from da Vinci robotic surgery and conventional retropubic radical prostatectomy (Class 1 publication, number 1).
Class 1: Research manuscripts resulting from the supply of tissues by the Australian Prostate Cancer BioResource, where the contribution is recognized by co-authorship.
