Interview

Which of the currently available biomarkers come closest to the ideal biomarker?

Prof. Markus Graefen

(28 June 2017)

 

The available biomarkers are not used as good as they could be. PSA density, velocity, free PSA, and a combination of these could be used more. On top of that, there are also predictive tools, such as the PCPT predictive tool and a variety of blood and urinary biomarkers. When looking at all the biomarkers, SelectMDx is a very good one [because of the low risk (2%) of missing clinically significant cancer].
