Link between prostate cancer and COVID-19 may offer new treatment

SANTA MONICA, CA — A researcher for the Prostate Cancer Foundation may have found a link in prostate cancer treatments that could unlock a new series of treatments for COVID-19 patients.

While studying prostate cancer in Italy as the pandemic spread, the researcher noticed that men seemed to be dying from the disease at a higher rate than women, but men who were being treated for prostate cancer, appeared to recover from the disease at a higher rate.

Dr. Jonathan Simons, CEO of the Prostate Cancer Foundation, shares their findings and what it could mean in the battle against COVID-19 with 104.7 WONK FM’s Jen Richer.
