  • AIM: Prostate specific antigen (PSA) is a widely utilized screening marker for prostate cancer. Its performance in detecting prostate cancer is enhanced with the 5α-reductase inhibitor (5aRI) dutasteride. We evaluated if PSA density velocity (PSADV) further improved the ability to predict prostate cancer risk on repeat biopsy utilizing the REDUCE trial data in order to avoid unnecessary biopsies. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The REDUCE study randomized 8 231 men aged 50 to 75 years with a PSA between 2.5 and 10 ng/mL and a previously benign prostate biopsy. Prostate volume, PSA and biopsy results at 24 months were available for 1 074 subjects. PSADV, defined as the change in PSA density divided by the number of days between PSA measurements (ng/mL/cc/day), was calculated and compared between the placebo and treatment groups and further stratified by prostate biopsy results. Statistical significance was calculated using the Wilcoxon rank sum test.More
