To examine whether age-related reference ranges for "normal" prostate-specific antigen (PSA) change (determined in men without prostate cancer) can be used to identify men at high risk of having prostate cancer.

The common tool for diagnosing prostate cancer is prostate-specific antigen (PSA), but the high sensitivity and low specificity of PSA testing are the problems in clinical practice. There are no prope...
To analyse the impact of repeating PSA levels on prostate biopsy decision in a cohort of men undergoing prostate biopsy.
Ga-prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) has gained increasing interest as a target molecule in imaging of prostate cancer because of its selective overexpression in local prostate cancer lesions ...
We report a case of a 65-year-old man with prostate cancer; his treatment history included radical prostatectomy followed by radiation therapy and subsequent androgen deprivation therapy for more than...
Testing for asymptomatic prostate cancer with prostate specific antigen (PSA) is of uncertain benefit. Most relevant authorities recommend against screening, and for informed patient choice. We aimed ...
There is controversy concerning the preferred treatment for men with localized prostate cancer with regard to the relative effectiveness of different treatments in controlling the cancer a...
Clinical data (prostate-specific antigen [PSA] response after radiotherapy) are being used to build a mathematical model to describe the clinical results of radiotherapy for prostate cance...
The purpose of this study is to test a novel diagnostic Positron Emission Tomography (PET) imaging agent for safety and biodistribution. The agent binds Prostate Specific Membrane Antigen ...
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the United Kingdom (UK) with over 40,000 men diagnosed each year. Prostate cancer (PrCa) can run in some families and research studies h...
This is a multicenter phase 2 open-label single-arm study that will evaluate the safety and efficacy of TAK-700 in patients with castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) without radiogr...
Proteins secreted by the prostate gland. The major secretory proteins from the human prostate gland include PROSTATE-SPECIFIC ANTIGEN, prostate-specific acid phosphatase, prostate-specific membrane antigen, and prostate-specific protein-94.
A glycoprotein that is a kallikrein-like serine proteinase and an esterase, produced by epithelial cells of both normal and malignant prostate tissue. It is an important marker for the diagnosis of prostate cancer.
Proteins found in SEMEN. Major seminal plasma proteins are secretory proteins from the male sex accessory glands, such as the SEMINAL VESICLES and the PROSTATE. They include the seminal vesicle-specific antigen, an ejaculate clotting protein; and the PROSTATE-SPECIFIC ANTIGEN, a protease and an esterase.
A family of trypsin-like SERINE ENDOPEPTIDASES that are expressed in a variety of cell types including human prostate epithelial cells. They are formed from tissue prokallikrein by action with TRYPSIN. They are highly similar to PROSTATE-SPECIFIC ANTIGEN. EC 220.127.116.11.
The secretory proteins of the seminal vesicles are proteins and enzymes that are important in the rapid clotting of the ejaculate. The major clotting protein is seminal vesicle-specific antigen. Many of these seminal vesicle proteins are under androgen regulation, and are substrates for the prostatic enzymes, such as the PROSTATE-SPECIFIC ANTIGEN, a protease and an esterase.
Prostate cancer (cancer de prostata) Prostate cancer (cancer de prostata) is a form of cancer that develops in the prostate, a gland in the male reproductive system. Most prostate cancers are slow growing; however, there are cases of aggressive prostat...
