Highlights in Urology

PCA3 useful for early diagnosis of prostate cancer

Based on a meta-analysis reported in the Chinese Medical Journal, prostate cancer antigen 3 (PCA3) can be used for the early diagnosis of prostate cancer and to avoid unnecessary biopsies, with a sensitivity of 0.82, a specificity of 0.962, a positive likelihood ratio of 2.39, a negative likelihood ratio of 0.51, and a diagnostic odds ratio of 4.89.

3-month PSA is a predictor of BCR-free survival after radical prostatectomy

As reported in the International Journal of Clinical Oncology, the 5-year biochemical recurrence (BCR)-free survival rate is significantly higher in patients with a 3-month PSA level < 0.010 ng/ml compared to patients with a 3-month PSA level between 0.010 and 100 ng/ml (92.6% vs. 57.4%). Amongst 174 men who underwent radical prostatectomy for clinically localized prostate cancer, 18.4% had a BCR and the median time to BCR was 16 months.

High expression of MUC1 + HER3 is associated with favorable outcome in bladder cancer patients

As reported in BJU International, elevated co-expression of MUC1 + HER3 was associated with improved survival in patients with bladder cancer. MUC1 alone, or elevated MUC1 + non-elevated HER3, had no prognostic value. Moreover, MUC1 was not predictive of survival, tumor stage, or tumor grade.
