abstract

  • We confirm that plasma levels of TGF-beta1 and IL6-SR considerably enhance the accuracy of the standard preoperative nomogram for the prediction of biochemical recurrence after radical prostatectomy. This model further refines our ability to identify patients at a high risk of biochemical recurrence after radical prostatectomy.
