ABSTRACT: Pathogenic microorganisms could be responsible for asymptomatic and symptomatic inflammatory processes in the prostate including Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas spp., Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Trichomonas vaginalis, etc (1). Modifications of bacterial populations were observed according to different inflammatory and tumor conditions in prostate cancer (PCa) samples, which may promote the development of cancer by enhancing extracellular environmental factors within the prostate (2-4). Most of these studies have used polymerase chain reaction (PCR) techniques to identify specific microorganisms. Next-generation sequencing (NGS) has much higher sensitivity than PCR to identify microorganisms in biological samples. We investigated microorganisms in post-digital rectal exam (DRE) urine samples obtained from PCa patients and a screening population with a PSA < 1.5 ng/mL using NGS and PCR techniques.
