A prospective study comparing a new radioimmunologic and a classical enzymatic assay for prostatic acid phosphatase was done to evaluate their respective roles in patients with prostatic diseases. We studied 50 patients with cancer of the prostate, 101 with benign prostatic hypertrophy and 17 with prostatitis as well as patients with nonprostatic malignancy, and various hematological and bone diseases. The results showed a low incidence of elevated values in patients with early cancer of the… CONTINUE READING
