Primary Outcome Measures:
  • change in PSA level [ Time Frame: 21-45 days after randomizatoin ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To assess the impact of ciprofloxacin on the absolute and percent change in PSA from randomization to prostate biopsy


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • overall infectious complications following prostate biopsy [ Time Frame: 21-45 days after randomization post biopsy ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To assess the impact of ciprofloxacin on the overall infectious complications following prostate biopsy

Arms Assigned Interventions
No Intervention: 2
Observation
Active Comparator: 1
Ciprofloxacin
Drug: Ciprofloxacin
500 milligrams twice a day for 14 days
Other Name: Cipro

Detailed Description:

Study Objectives:

Primary Objective: To assess the impact of ciprofloxacin on the absolute and percent change in PSA from randomization to prostate biopsy

Secondary Objective: To assess the impact of ciprofloxacin on the overall infectious complications following prostate biopsy

The impact of observation and ciprofloxacin on PSA levels will be assessed by absolute changes and percent PSA change. The first PSA measurement will be at the study entry and randomization. The second PSA measurement will be immediately prior to prostate biopsy, which will occur 21-45 days following randomization.
