Test Overview

Test Methodology

Transcription Mediated Amplification (TMA) and Hybrid Protection Assay (HPA)

Test Usage

Adjunct to serum prostate specific antigen (PSA) for risk stratification of patients undergoing prostate biopsy. MPS incorporates serum PSA, urine PCA3 score, and urine TMPRSS2: ERG score in logistic regression models to derive scores giving the risk of detecting high grade (Gleason score >7) prostate cancer on diagnostic needle biopsy.

Reference Range

The TMPRSS2: ERG score ranges from 0 to 100, with higher scores associated with an increased risk of high grade cancer on diagnostic biopsy. The MyProstateScore (MPS) report provides a high grade prostate cancer risk score, indicating the risk of high grade prostate cancer (Gleason score >7) on diagnostic needle biopsy.

* Reference ranges may change over time. Please refer to the original patient report when evaluating results.
