DNA ploidy measured on archived pretreatment biopsy material may correlate with prostate-specific antigen recurrence after prostate brachytherapy.

Abstract

PURPOSE To explore whether DNA ploidy of prostate cancer cells determined from archived transrectal ultrasound-guided biopsy specimens correlates with disease-free survival. METHODS AND MATERIALS Forty-seven failures and 47 controls were selected from 1006 consecutive low- and intermediate-risk patients treated with prostate (125)I brachytherapy (July… (More)
