We have examined the level of c-myc transcripts in prostate tissue obtained from patients with both benign prostatic hyperplasia and adenocarcinoma of the prostate. A significantly higher level of c-myc transcripts is observed in patients with adenocarcinoma (P < 0.05). In addition, a subset of patients with adenocarcinoma had levels of c-myc transcripts 2-fold higher than the mean level for this group. These preliminary results indicate that the investigation of c-myc levels as a prognostic indicator in prostatic carcinoma is warranted.
