Prostatic-Specific Antigen (PSA), Free, Serum/Plasma


PSA that reaches the serum is either free or bound to plasma proteins includingα-1-antichymotrypsin, α-2macroglobulin, and α-1antitrypsin. In men with prostate cancer, there seems to be a lower proportion of free PSA and this is expressed as a decrease in the F/T PSA ratio.
