Prostate cancer screening among the general population is highly debatable. Prior data suggests that men carrying mutations in the BRCA1& 2 (BReast CAncer) genes and LYNCH Syndrome (MMR genes - MisMatching Repair gene) maybe at increased risk of developing prostate cancer.

This will be a prospective diagnostic trial of screening for prostate cancer among men with genetic predisposition.

The primary endpoint will be to estimate the prevalence, stage and grade of prostate cancer in this population. Additionally, the study aims to estimate the impact of these germ line mutations on benign prostatic hyperplasia. Finally, this study will identify an inception cohort for future interventional studies of primary and secondary prevention.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Prevalence, stage and pathology of screen-detected prostate cancer in BRCA1/BRCA2 founder mutation carriers and Lynch mutation carriers [ Time Frame: within 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Accuracy of different screening tests (PSA, free to total PSA, prostate MRI) in detecting prostate cancer among men with genetic predispositions. [ Time Frame: within 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Other Outcome Measures:
  • Accuracy of different screening tests (PSA, free to total PSA, prostate MRI) in detecting clinically significant prostate cancer among men with genetic predispositions. [ Time Frame: within 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Cost effectiveness of different screening tests (PSA, free to total PSA, prostate MRI) in detecting prostate cancer and clinically significant prostate cancer among men with genetic predispositions. [ Time Frame: within 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Impact of genetic mutations (BRCA, Lynch) on lower urinary tract symptoms (IPSS, flow and post void urine residual) and BPH ( benign prostatic hyperplasia). [ Time Frame: within 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Genomic and biological profiles in samples from BRCA and Lynch mutation carriers and characterize changes related to prostate cancer. [ Time Frame: within 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 220
Study Start Date: February 2014
Estimated Primary Completion Date: June 2017 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
screening tests
The screening will include: DRE, PSA and free to total PSA, a multiparametric prostate MRI and a trans-rectal ultra-sound guided prostate biopsy, IPSS questionnaire, trans-rectal US assessment of prostate size, urine flow and residual.
Procedure: PSA and free to total PSA
PSA, free to total PSA. Serum will be stored for future investigations
Other: IPSS questionnaire
the validated International Prostate Symptom Score
Procedure: DRE (Digital Rectal Examination ) Procedure: urine flow and residual
The post void residual will be recorded by using ultrasound. Creatinine level will be checked.
Procedure: a multiparametric prostate MRI Procedure: trans-rectal ultra-sound guided prostate biopsy
12 core Trans-rectal prostatic biopsy for diagnostic purposes


Ages Eligible for Study:   40 Years to 70 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Male
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Male carrier of mutation in BRCA 1\2 or germ-line mutations in the MMR genes (MLH1, MSH2 , MSH6 or PMS2).
  • WHO performance status 0-2 (Appendix 2)
  • No previous history of prostate cancer
  • No previous prostate biopsy
  • Absence of any psychological, familial, sociological or geographical situation potentially hampering compliance with the study protocol and follow-up schedule.
  • Individuals that cannot undergo the MRI exam due to high creatinine level or claustrophobic will be disc loud from the MRI part.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Previous cancer with a terminal prognosis of less than five years.
  • Previous prostate cancer
