Table 4: The percentage of diagnostic efficiency (DE).

ParameterControl versus totalProstatitis versus BPHBPH versus P.Ca


The table showed the percentage of diagnostic efficiency of PSA and PAP in cases and controls. Serum PSA showed 100% DE in total cases and control whereas PAP showed only 82.4%. PSA showed DE of 76.6% and 59.2% in prostatitis versus BPH and BPH versus P.Ca, respectively, whereas DE of PAP was 90% and 83.3% in the above groups.
