Introduction & Objectives: 1. To assess the effect of 5 alfa reductase inhibitor (dutasteride) on prevention of prostate cancer development for patients with high grade intraepithelial neoplasia (HPIN). 2. To asses the rate of prostate cancer at repeated transrectal ultrasound guided biopsies in case of HPIN.

Conclusions: 1. Dutasteride has no effect on rate of prostate cancer detection in case of high grade intraepithelial neoplasia. 2. The results are intermediate. Further investigation will help to evaluate the effect of dutasterid on prevention of prostate cancer in case of high grade intraepithelial neoplasia.
