Abstract

Purpose There is still no certain threshold value of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) for prostate cancer diagnosis. We aimed to investigate the predictive value of arginine and its metabolites for diagnosing prostate cancer in patients with PSA 4-10 ng/ml and evaluate their usefulness as prognostic tumor markers.
