Biological behavior of prostatic cancer is influenced by different tumor factors. The proliferative activity of the malignancies could be one of those parameters which serve as basis to design therapy and to estimate prognosis. Here ploidity and S-phase fraction of 44 prostatic cancer obtained by radical prostatectomy were compared to other known tumor characteristics (PSA, staging, grading). There are correlations between the PSA concentration, grading, staging and S phase fraction. The ploidity correlates with the grading. Neither of kinetic parameter correlated with the nodal involvement.
