Abstract

In a recently published paper, Touijer and colleagues1 showed that pathological Gleason score, as well as the number of positive nodes, was significantly correlated with prostate cancer outcome in one of the largest retrospective series of node-positive patients treated with radical prostatectomy without adjuvant therapy (369 consecutive patients). In particular, the Gleason score and the number of positive nodes were important predictors of metastasis-free and biochemical-relapse (BCR)-free survival on multivariate analysis.
