Clinical question How often should men who choose to have prostate-specific antigen
testing be screened?
Investigators reported that PROSTASCINT-guided IMRT led to "appropriate" responses in prostate-specific antigen
(PSA) levels; bDFS rates were 98% at 24 months and 92% at 36 months.
The measurement of prostate-specific antigen
(PSA) is widely used for prostate cancer screening.
(PSA), (3) a kallikrein-like serine protease, is one of the most abundant proteins secreted by the prostate into seminal fluid (1).
PHILADELPHIA -- Measuring serum levels of free and complexed prostate-specific antigen
may help estimate prostate cancer risk when the total prostate-specific antigen
level is indeterminate.
CHICACO -- A prostate-specific antigen
threshold of 2.
For instance, physicians look at high blood concentrations of a protein called prostate-specific antigen
as an indication of prostate cancer.
Widespread use of a blood test called prostate-specific antigen
, or PSA, has reduced the proportion of prostate cancer considered incurable at the time of diagnosis from about 50 percent to 5 percent, Klein said.
