        Though IHT works with all those companies, all that is known for sure is that HPQ enrolled in the 4k score test.

        3,087 men aged 40+ chose to have ProstateCheck. In addition:
        • The take up rate at the 16 scheduled sites was over 40%
        • Some sites had a take up rate as high as 60%
        • 87% of participants rated their overall experience as excellent or very good
        • No participants rated their experience as poor
        • 484 employees had a raised PSA score or were considered at higher risk and
        referred for further investigation
        Most significantly, 12 cases of prostate cancer were identified that would have gone undetected.
