PURPOSE: To investigate early prostate-specific antigen (PSA) kinetics after high radiation doses of 85 Gy on locally advanced prostate cancer. METHODS AND MATERIALS: A total of 201 patients were prospectively and consecutively treated with external beam radiotherapy and a brachytherapy boost. Of the 201 patients, 104 received concomitant hormonal therapy on the decision of the referring urologist and were excluded, yielding a study population of 97 patients. The first posttreatment PSA analysis was performed not earlier than 1 month after treatment completion but within the first 4 months, and then every 4 months. Analysis of PSA kinetics included the PSA nadir (nPSA) at values of < or =4 ng/mL to < or =0.5 ng/mL. The nPSA at < or =4 ng/mL within 4 months (nPSA < or =4/4m) was the variable of interest. RESULTS: We established highly significant associations between an nPSA of < or =1 and < or =0.5 ng/mL and the nPSA < or =4/4m (p <0.0001). A hazard ratio of 0.33 (95% Confidence Interval (CI), 0.12-0.91) underlined the lower risk of recurrence related to nPSA < or =4/4m achievement (p = 0.033). Using time-dependent covariate models for patients who did not reach an nPSA < or =4/4m, an nPSA of < or =1 ng/mL remained without prognostic significance (p = 0.06). However, for patients who reached an nPSA < or =4/4m, an nPSA of < or =1 ng/mL did significantly improve the prognosis (p <0.001), but much later after treatment. The same analysis was repeated for nPSA < or =0.5 ng/mL with similar conclusions as when nPSA < or =4/4m was obtained (p <0.01). CONCLUSION: The nPSA < or =4/4m has been demonstrated to be a significant predictor of biochemical no evidence of disease after high radiation doses of 85 Gy. Its major advantage is that it was available earlier than the other nadirs. [less ▲]

Vascular renal resistance (RR) during hypothermic machine perfusion (HMP) is frequently used in kidney graft quality assessment. However, the association between RR and outcome has never been prospectively validated. Prospectively collected RR values of 302 machine-perfused deceased donor kidneys of all types (standard and extended criteria donor kidneys and kidneys donated after cardiac death), transplanted without prior knowledge of these RR values, were studied. In this cohort, we determined the association between RR and delayed graft function (DGF) and 1-year graft survival. The RR (mmHg/mL/min) at the end of HMP was an independent risk factor for DGF (odds ratio 21.12 [1.03–435.0]; p = 0.048) but the predictive value of RR was low, reflected by a c-statistic of the receiver operator characteristic curve of 0.58. The RR was also found to be an independent risk factor for 1-year graft failure (hazard ratio 12.33 [1.11–136.85]; p = 0.004). Determinants of transplant outcome are multifactorial in nature and this study identifies RR as an additional parameter to take into account when evaluating graft quality and estimating the likelihood of successful outcome. However, RR as a stand-alone quality assessment tool cannot be used to predict outcome with sufficient precision. [less ▲]

The prognostic value of stress electrocardiogram and thallium-201 stress myocardial scintigraphy was analyzed in 224 patients 3 months after a myocardial infarction; both techniques allowed an adequate stratification based on the presence of ST depression or multivessel disease. Combining stress electrocardiogram and stress myocardial scintigraphy data improved the prognostic ability, particularly in patients who associated multivessel disease and ST depression. [less ▲]
