Where two consecutive rising prostate-specific antigen levels (PSA) were found despite castrate levels of testosterone (<50ng/dL), record the date of the second test. 

For a person to be recorded as castrate resistant, PSA tests need to be at least two weeks apart and both must be higher than the test prior.

This element should be recorded in conjunction with the Castrate resistance indicator item.
