We answer the question of whether, following radical prostatectomy, prostate cancer in patients with a family history of prostate cancer relapses biochemically at the same rate as prostate cancer in appropriately matched patients with no family history.
The study was performed in 2 parts.
In both parts prostate specific antigen (PSA) progression was defined as a postoperative elevation in serum PSA greater than 0.2 ng./ml.
Part 1 included 656 patients who underwent radical prostatectomy by the same surgeon.
Men with a family history of prostate cancer in a father or brother (94) were compared to those with no history of prostate cancer in a father or brother (562).
Part 2 comprised 52 men with a family history of prostate cancer consistent with hereditary prostate cancer (HPC).
HPC is defined as a family with 3 generations affected, 3 first-degree relatives affected or 2 relatives affected before age 55 years.
Each member of this HPC group was matched by postoperative Gleason score and postoperative pathological stage with a patient who also underwent radical prostatectomy in the same time frame by the same surgeon but who reported no family history of prostate cancer by telephone interview and questionnaire.
In part 1,94 probands (14%) reported a history of prostate cancer in the father or in at least 1 brother.
The remaining 562 probands (85%) reported no known history of prostate cancer in the father or brother (s). (...)
