PURPOSE Two models for stratification of prostate cancer aggressiveness predominate for the purposes of daily treatment decision making. This study investigates the relationships between these two clinically popular models. METHODS Both risk stratification models use the same definition for low risk: Gleason score (GS) <or=6, pretreatment initial prostate specific antigen (iPSA) <or=10 ng/mL, and stage T1c-T2c. For the single factor high risk model (SF), intermediate risk (IR) is defined as… CONTINUE READING
