U.S. Representatives Urge Critical Improvements in Prostate Cancer Detection
Date:2/11/2008

would dedicate $650 million to develop the detection technology and educational resources needed to gain the upper hand in the battle against prostate cancer.

"The PRIME Act is crucial to the long-term health of American men," said Rep. Dan Burton (R-IN). "We know that when detected and treated early, prostate cancer has a cure rate of over 90 percent. It is time for the federal government to make an investment in the technology that will give physicians the tools they need to end blind patient care."

"This legislation is a prime example of how taxpayer dollars, put to the right use, can positively impact millions of lives and eliminate billions of dollars from an already strained health care system. Prostate cancer is an epidemic in this country and we have a moral imperative to effectively address this health care crisis impacting men and in particular, the African-American male," said Rep. Wynn.
