The prostate-specific antigen (PSA) “gray zone” in Chinese men is likely higher than the traditional value (2.5–10.0 ng/ml) since the incidence of prostate cancer in Chinese men is relative low. The utility of percent free PSA in predicting prostate cancer is based on Western populations and may introduce sizable bias when applied to a Chinese cohort. We assessed the efficacy of percent free PSA in predicting prostate cancer in Chinese men with a PSA of 2.5–10.0 and 10.1–20.0 ng/ml. A total of… CONTINUE READING
