NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell physician-scientists present at 2010 American Urological Meeting
Date:6/2/2010

NEW YORK (May 29, 2010) -- Physician-scientists from NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center will present their latest research findings at the American Urological Association's Annual Meeting in San Francisco, May 29 to June 3.

Dr. Steven Kaplan, a urologist and professor of urology at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center, and Dr. Darracott Vaughan, senior author and professor emeritus of urology at Weill Cornell Medical College, have published data showing that 5-alpha reductase inhibitors (5-ARI), drugs used to control for benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH), an enlarged prostate, may greatly improve the accuracy of traditional PSA tests for prostate cancer diagnosis.

"Taking 5-ARI drugs may eliminate the background noise associated with PSA testing -- canceling out a benign response and leaving only one signal for malignancy," explains Dr. Kaplan, lead author of the study. "Using PSA testing, we may now be able to distinguish prostate cancer from benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) disease."

Dr. Kaplan will present these potentially groundbreaking findings during a press briefing on June 1 at 1:00 p.m. PST and for meeting attendees on June 2 at 12:20 p.m. PST at Moscone North, 120 & 123.

Among the most significant presentations are the following.

  • Surgeons' robotic surgery experience has impact on surgical cancer margins and operative time [2023] Wednesday, June 2, 1:00 p.m. 3:00 p.m.; Moscone North, 130 & 131
