(Cleveland Clinic) A multi-center study that validates the clinical performance of IsoPSA -- a new blood test that has proven to be more accurate in predicting overall risk of prostate cancer than standard prostate-specific antigen (PSA) -- will be presented during the AUA Annual Meeting this weekend in San Francisco. Results suggest that use of IsoPSA may substantially reduce the need for biopsy, and may thus lower the likelihood of overdetection and overtreatment of nonlethal prostate cancer.
