What is the evidence of benefits of PSA screening for prostate cancer?

Outpatient Medicine


Objective
Objective prostate cancer?

  • Review the evidence concerning the effect of PSA screening on prostate cancer mortality (Question 1 of the USPTF report on prostate cancer screening)


Rcts and quasi rcts of psa screening
RCTs (and quasi-RCTs) of PSA screening prostate cancer?

  • 1988 Quebec Prospective Randomized Controlled Trial

  • Norkopping, Sweden study

  • ERSPC

  • PLCO


Observational studies
Observational studies prostate cancer?

  • Canada

  • Tyrol, Austria

  • Olmsted County, Minnesota


1988 quebec perspective randomied controlled trial
1988 Quebec Perspective Randomied Controlled Trial prostate cancer?

  • n = 46K men age 45-80

  • Randomized to an “invite for screening” group and a control group.

  • Treatment group received PSA (ULN = 3.0) and DRE. If either abnormal patients received TRUS and sextent Bx


1988 quebec
1988 Quebec prostate cancer?

  • Results at 7 year follow up:

Compliance in treatment arm: 23%

Compliance in control arm: 93%


1988 quebec1
1988 Quebec prostate cancer?

  • 11 year follow up: no difference according to intention (invitation) to screen.

  • Among all screened individuals: 19 prostate cancer deaths / 100k

  • Among non-screened: 53.4 deaths / 100k



1988 quebec2
1988 Quebec prostate cancer?

  • Comments:

    • No comparison between the groups (invited vs. not invited)

    • No comparison between screened and unscreened groups

    • Inappropriate analysis of screened vs. unscreened rather than intention to screen


Norrkoping sweden study
Norrkoping Sweden study prostate cancer?

  • n = 9026 men in Norrkoping, Sweden

  • Patients in the screened group (SG, n = 1494) were given DREs in 1987 and 1990, as well as DRE + PSA in 1993 and 1996.


Norrkoping results
Norrkoping Results prostate cancer?

  • In SG 5.7% of patients were diagnosed with cancer, about ½ on the initial DRE in 1987. 56.5% of these cancers were localized at time of diagnosis.

  • In the control group (CG), 3.8% were diagnosed with cancer, 27% of which were organ confined.

  • NO DIFFERENCE IN SURVIVAL at 15 year follow up.

  • Since PSA was not used until the 6th year of the study, this is not a 15 year follow up for PSA screening

Norrkoping prostate cancer?

  • Comments

    • No reported data comparing baseline characteristics of screened vs control

    • No reported data on crossover, compliance, etc.


European randomized study of screening for prostate cancer erspc
European Randomized Study of Screening for Prostate Cancer (ERSPC)

  • Powered to detect a 25% reduction in prostate cancer mortality through screening.

  • In 2006 data was assessed and the trial was continued


Plco trial
PLCO Trial (ERSPC)

  • N = 76,705 (38,350 screened)

  • Screened group given annual PSA and DRE

  • Compliance 89%

  • 1.4% of men in the initial screening are were diagnosed, the majority with localized

  • Mortality results pending. Patients enrolled from 1993 through 2001.


Population analyses
Population analyses (ERSPC)

  • In several Western countries including the US and Canada (34.1 to 28.3 deaths per 100k), prostate cancer mortality has decreased substantially since the early 1990s, when PSA screening was introduced.

  • No one knows why this is

    • PSA screening

    • New therapies (anti-androgen therapy)

    • “attribution bias”
