Överskrift Diagnostic and prognostic value of quantitative monitoring of prostate specific antigen in blood serum and urine from patients with prostate cancer after radical prostatectomy
Beskrivning AIM: To study values of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) in the blood serum and urine before and after massage of the prostatic bed in patients with prostatic cancer (PC) after radical prostatectomy. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Changes in serum and urine PSA concentrations were followed up in 17 patients with PC (T2-3N0M0) 14 months (4-24 mon) after radical prostatectomy. Control examinations were made once a month. MRT or CT and osteoscintigraphy were made in suspected recurrence and/or metastases of PC. RESULTS: There were no changes in PSA consentrations in the serum and urine before and after the massage of prostatic bed in 10 of 17 patients. In 3 patients PSA concentrations in blood and serum increased after the massage, in one of them blood levels of PSA after the massage went up 5 months after PSA increase in the urine. In 4 of 17 patients urine PSA levels increased after the massage, the blood levels remaining the same. CONCLUSION: Follow-up measurements of blood and urinary levels in PC patients after radical prostatectomy before and following massage of the prostatic bed allow detection of prostatic PSA-positive cells which were not removed at surgery. We suggest that these cells may be the basis of recurrent disease.
