BioCurex Discusses PSA Article from the Journal of the National Cancer Institute
RICHMOND, British Columbia, Nov. 7, 2006 (PRIMEZONE) -- BioCurex Inc. (OTCBB:BOCX) today commented on the PSA velocity study published on Nov. 1 in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute (NCI). In this study, the authors studied the increase of PSA ("velocity") in serum samples from 980 men monitored since 1958. The authors evaluated the association between PSA velocity and death from prostate cancer during the period of 10-15 years before diagnosis. The authors conclude that PSA velocity provides information early in the disease course that is related to the chance of dying of prostate cancer, before diagnosis, when PSA levels are below 4.0 ng/mL (the current threshold above which cancer is suspected), and at a time when cure might be still possible with local therapy (surgery or radiation). However, the authors make it clear that this is a possibility and not a fact as they add: "Thirdly, we cannot be certain that if a life-threatening prostate cancer had been identified by PSA velocity earlier in the natural history of the disease, treatment at that point in time would have changed the outcome. Rather, PSA velocity might identify men who are destined to succumb to their disease in spite of curative intervention."
