OBJECTIVES To assess the prognostic value of prostatic stromal inflammation in surgically treated localized prostate carcinoma for biochemical recurrence-free survival. METHODS Stromal prostatic inflammation grading was studied in 161 patients who underwent radical prostatectomy for prostate cancer without involvement of the lymph nodes and who did not receive preoperative or postoperative radiotherapy or hormonal therapy until recurrence occurred. Inflammation was graded as high-grade… CONTINUE READING
