Considering a repeat biopsy for your patient? Confirm negative biopsies with CONFIDENCE. Progensa PCA3 can help.
PCA3 is a prostate-specific gene that is over-expressed in prostate tumors. Prostate cancer cells express 60 to 100 times more PCA3 than normal cells.
Unlike PSA, PCA3 is not influenced by benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), prostatitis, medical procedures, or injury.
