Peer-Reviewed Publication

JAMA Network

About The Study: In this preliminary descriptive report from an ongoing randomized clinical trial, one additional high-grade cancer per 196 men and one low-grade cancer per 909 men were detected among those randomized to be invited to undergo a single prostate cancer screening intervention compared with those not invited to undergo screening. These preliminary findings from a single round of screening should be interpreted cautiously, pending results of the study’s primary mortality outcome.
