BACKGROUND We lack simple and reliable diagnostic tools to predict pathological staging as well as further progression of prostate cancer in individual cases. METHODS We studied deletions on 8p (8p22 and 8p23-pter), 10q (10q24-qter), and 16q (16q24) by fluorescence in situ hybridization in 53 specimens from patients with prostate cancer, and compared the status of these deletions with various clinical parameters. Forty-five cases were further evaluated regarding disease progression with a… CONTINUE READING
