Abstract

Background: The urokinase plasminogen axis is composed of urokinase plasminogen activator (uPA), its receptor (uPAR), and its inhibitors (PAI-1 and PAI-2). This axis is involved in cell proliferation, angiogenesis, extracellular matrix degradation, invasion, and metastases. Objective: To assess the relationship of the uPA axis with pathologic features and outcomes in prostate cancer. Design, setting, and participants: Retrospective study of 230 consecutive patients treated with radical prostatectomy for clinically localized disease. Interventions: None. Measurements: Immunohistochemical staining for uPA, uPAR, and PAI-1 were carried out on serial archival tissue microarray specimens. These markers were histologically categorized as normal or overexpressed. Disease recurrence was classified as aggressive if metastases were present, if postrecurrence prostate-specific antigen (PSA) doubling time was
