Landmark prostate cancer screening trial may have misrepresented data

May 5, 2016

The rates of PSA screening reported in the control group of the Prostate, Lung, Colorectal and Ovarian Cancer Screening Trial may have been inaccurately reported, according to a letter to the editor published in The New England Journal of Medicine.

As such, recent recommendations regarding the use of PSA — including recommendations against screening issued by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) in 2012 — may need to be reassessed, according to Jim C. Hu, MD, MPH, Ronald Lynch professor of urologic oncology at Weill Cornell Medicine and director of the LeFrak Center for Robotic Surgery at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital.
