Human prostate-specific antigen (PSA) is a serine protease, a single-chain glycoprotein with a molecular weight of approximately 34,000 daltons containing 7% carbohydrate by weight. PSA is immunologically specific for prostatic tissue. Elevated serum PSA concentrations have been reported in patients with prostate cancer, benign prostatic hypertrophy, or inflammatory conditions of other adjacent genitourinary tissues, but not in apparently healthy men, men with non-prostatic carcinoma, apparently healthy women, or women with cancer. Therefore, measurement of serum PSA concentrations can be an important tool in monitoring patients with prostate cancer and in determining the potential and actual effectiveness of surgery or other therapies.
