More Precise Prostate Cancer Screening on Horizon
Date:9/2/2011

NEW YORK, Sept. 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- This September, during Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, there is talk of a new prostate cancer screening method that may change the face of prostate cancer diagnoses. Initial data gathered by two Cleveland hospitals and one Boston hospital, analyzed by the National Cancer Institute, indicates significantly more accurate results with a new urine screening. Dr. David Samadi, Vice Chairman, Department of Urology, and Chief of Robotics and Minimally Invasive Surgery at The Mount Sinai Medical Center, is encouraged by the potential of this new screening to more accurately identify prostate cancer in men. "Increasing awareness of prostate cancer and the importance of early screening is key," said Dr. Samadi, "but being able to share potential advancements in our screening capabilities, especially during Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, is even better."

This new PSA/SIA assay is believed to be more accurate because it is able to evaluate a wide range of ultra-structural changes in the PSA (Prostate-Specific Antigen) protein, rather than just identifying a patient's PSA level, as the current test does. "This test appears to have a way of deciphering the PSA molecular structures of cancerous cells vs. those of non-cancerous cell," explains Dr. Samadi. "While the PSA test is critical to identifying prostate cancer in men, there are some limitations of the current screening. We see more false positive and false negatives than are ideal." The current PSA blood test is believed to result in false negative
