Blog Updates for January 2012

Jan 28, 2012. In Biochemical PSA Recurrence we added: A 2012 review [Full Text] [PMID: 22218632] of nutrition and chemoprevention provides a [table] listing the candidates, their demonstrated benefit (or lack thereof), and the level of evidence (level 1 is highest level of evidence, 2 is lower, etc.). Using this would, again, be on the assumption that chemoprevention measures are the same measures that would be helpful to those who already have prostate cancer.

Jan 28, 2012. In USPSTF Draft Report we added: New Jersey has since passed legislation opposing the USPSTF recommendation (see [news]) and Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary of Health and Human Services, has issued [this letter] (from PC Infolink site) indicating that the US government does "not intend to eliminate coverage of this screening test under Medicare at this time" although that leaves open what future actions they might take.
