MiPS (Mi Prostate Score Urine test)

Aliases:
This biomarker is also known as:
  • MiPS (Mi Prostate Score Urine test),

Description…

The MiPS assay is a multiplex analysis of T2-ERG gene fusion, PCA3, and serum PSA (KLK3). It is commercially available through the University of Michigan MLabs. The MiPS assay tests for the presence of two prostate cancer biomarkers: a piece of RNA made from the PCA3 gene, found to be overactive in 95 percent of all prostate cancers, and another RNA marker that is found only when TMPRSS2 and ERG abnormally fuse. TMPRSS2:ERG, or T2-ERG, is a strong indicator of prostate cancer.
