Prostate cancer is the second most common cause of cancer and the sixth leading cause of cancer fatalities in men world- wide (Ferlay et al., 2010). Genetic abnormalities and mutations are primary causative factors, but epigenetic mechanisms are now recognized as playing a key role in prostate cancer de- velopment. Epigenetics is defined as the study of mitotically and/or meiotically heritable changes in gene function that do not involve a change in DNA sequence (Dupont et al., 2009).
