Relationship between prostate-specific antigen and hematocrit: does hemodilution lead to lower PSA concentrations in men with a higher body mass index?
OBJECTIVES To examine whether a lower hematocrit was associated with a lower prostate-specific antigen (PSA), when stratifying by body mass index (BMI) in healthy men. PSA test is widely used inExpand

Relationship between changes in haemoglobin A1C and prostate-specific antigen in healthy men.
BACKGROUND Although many studies have shown an inverse relationship between diabetes and prostate cancer, it still remains unclear why diabetes may reduce the risk of prostate cancer. An inverseExpand

Plasma volume changes affect prostate specific antigen in healthy men.
PURPOSE Several studies show that prostate specific antigen inversely correlates with body mass index. Hemodilution may be responsible for the lower prostate specific antigen in obese men. HematocritExpand
