The PSA ELISA kit is used for the quantitative measurement of PSA in human serum. Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) is a single chain glycoprotien produced by epithelial cells of the prostate gland. PSA is useful in the management of patients with prostate cancer. The measurement of serum PSA has become the most accepted test to indicate men who are at risk of having prostate cancer and who should be examined by other tests. Using a cut-off of 4 ng/ml, 92% of men over 50 years of age with malignant prostatic tissues, 8% of healthy men and 28% of men with benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH) test positive for PSA. Three major forms of PSA exist in the serum: free PSA, bound PSA and complex PSA. Bound PSA is found in higher concentrations in patients with prostate cancer; whereas, free PSA is detected in higher concentrations in patients with BPH. If the free PSA to total PSA ratio is >25%, it is unlikely that the patient has prostate cancer; whereas, if free PSA is <16% then prostate cancer is likely to be the cause.
