Does the molecular staging in pelvic lymph nodes improve the detection of relevant prostate cancer metastases? An assessment after 6 years.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To assess the course of cancer-free survival and thus determine how reliably reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) can detect prostate-specific antigen (PSA)-expressing cells, as patients with untreated lymph node-positive prostate cancer tend to have a poor prognosis, whereas those treated with radical prostatectomy (RP) and… (More)
