PURPOSE We assessed whether complexed prostate specific antigen (PSA) and complexed PSA referenced variables would enhance prostate cancer detection in men with serum total PSA between 2.5 and 4.0 ng./ml. MATERIALS AND METHODS Transition zone and total prostate gland volumes were determined in 151 men who underwent prostate biopsy using an 11 core biopsy strategy. In addition to measuring the Bayer section sign complexed PSA assay, we also calculated 2 computed complexed PSA values (Hybritech… CONTINUE READING
