Title: METHOD FOR IN VITRO DIAGNOSIS OF PROSTATE CANCER BY MEANS OF URINARY BIOMARKERS
Abstract:
The present invention concerns a method for the in vitro diagnosis of prostate cancer in an individual, which comprises the steps of: providing a urine sample of the individual; quantifying in the urine sample specific combinations of polypeptides; optionally quantifying in the urine sample a molecule having molecular formula C4H7N3O (creatinine) and normalizing the quantified value of the combinations of polypeptides; comparing the absolute values quantified of the polypeptides or the normalized values with corresponding reference values.
