Hypoxic prostate/muscle PO2 ratio predicts for outcome in patients with localized prostate cancer: long-term results.


PURPOSE To correlate tumor oxygenation status with long-term biochemical outcome after prostate brachytherapy. METHODS AND MATERIALS Custom-made Eppendorf PO(2) microelectrodes were used to obtain PO(2) measurements from the prostate (P), focused on positive biopsy locations, and normal muscle tissue (M), as a control. A total of 11,516 measurements were… (More)
