Grade Groups Provides Improved Predictions of Pathologic and Early Oncologic Outcomes Compared with Gleason Score Risk Groups

The grade grouping (GG) system was introduced in 2013. Data from academic centers suggests GG better distinguishes between prostate cancer risk groups than the Gleason score (GS) risk groups. We compared the performance of both for predicting pathological/recurrence outcomes using data from Michigan Urological Surgery Improvement Collaborative (MUSIC).

Commercially available tests exist but their use has been restricted in part because of their expense. Two studies in this issue of The Journal specifically explore the cost-effectiveness of some of the available biomarkers and reach similar conclusions.
