Prostate cancer (CaP) is the most common solid tumor in American males (1). The wide spectrum of biological behavior (2) exhibited by prostatic neoplasms poses the difficulty of predicting the clinical course in the individual patient (3,4). Because of increasing public awareness and screening efforts, the enhanced incidence has translated into a large increase in the use of radical prostatectomy as well as four other treatment modalities for localized disease (5). With this incremental rise in surgical intervention has come the frustrating realization of the inability to predict organ-confined disease and clinical outcome for a given patient (5, 6). Traditional markers, such as grade, clinical stage, and pretreatment prostate-specific antigen (PSA), are of limited prognostic value for individual men. There is clearly a need to recognize and develop molecular and genetic biomarkers to improve prognostication and the management of the patient with clinically localized CaP. As with other common human neoplasia (7), the search for molecular genetic markers to better define the genesis and progression of CaP, is the key focus for cancer research investigations worldwide.
