Treatment decisions are difficult in clinically localised prostate cancer and further biomarkers of aggressive behaviour are required. We investigated the hypothesis that the tissue expression of three cell cycle markers, Rb, p21 and p16, would provide helpful prognostic information in a well characterised series of prostate cancers which were clinically localised and treated conservatively.
