Abstract

The pilot studies led to a common, agreed set of minimal requirements for participation in the European study. These features include randomization, PC mortality as major endpoint, age 55-70 years, biopsy policy, rescreening interval, treatment policies, and follow-up. A randomized screening study seems to be feasible in Europe.
