What is the difference from the diagnostic method “Stockholm 3”?
- ProsMedic’s diagnosis is made with the help of a blood test on a single occasion, which can determine with very high certainty whether there is cancer. Stockholm3 combines protein markers, genetic markers and clinical data with an algorithm to assess prostate cancer risk. Further investigations are required if cancer is indicated. The test result only gives the probability of cancer.
- ProsMedic’s test does not give false positive results; either the patient has cancer requiring treatment or not. The Stockholm 3 test can give false positive results where cancer is not present.
- With ProsMedics´method, biopsies will no longer be necessary. Stockholm 3 tests reduce the number of unnecessary biopsies by 50 percent.
