Prostate Cancer Clinical Trial
Comprehensive Monitoring of Men With Prostate Cancer Cared for by “Active Surveillance
Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in men. However, there is a wide range in prognosis determined by a host of factors. This study will evaluate the feasibility of guiding therapeutic intervention electronically facilitated symptom and disease monitoring in patients being followed on Active Surveillance. Additionally, we will develop a tissue and data resource to support discovery and hypothesis generation to evaluate germline and/or somatic alterations in relation to cancer-specific and overall outcomes..
1. Monitor cancer-specific outcomes of men who meet consensus criteria for active surveillance under one of three categories: 1) low or very low-risk prostate cancer, 2) intermediate risk with patient consent, or 3) severe medical comorbidities and high-risk localized prostate cancer or patient desire, despite recommendation
Screen for a relationship between cancer-specific and clinical outcomes related to selected comorbidities.
Determine the feasibility of electronically facilitated symptoms and disease monitoring to guide therapeutic intervention and prompt therapeutic course correction.
Develop a tissue and data resource to support discovery and hypothesis generation focused on germline alterations, somatic alterations, and/or the interaction between the two in determining cancer-specific and overall outcomes
Patients will have histologic diagnosis of adenocarcinoma of the prostate within 24 months of study entry.
Patient must meet at least one of the following clinical indications for AS: National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) very low risk or low risk prostate cancer meeting consensus guidelines for AS; NCCN intermediate-risk prostate cancer requesting AS (per patient and clinician shared decision making); or have severe medical comorbidities (defined as CCI estimated 10-year survival < 50% and agreed by treating clinician) with high- or very high-risk localized prostate cancer.
Patients must agree to comply with the surveillance schedule.
Patients must be over 18 years of age
Written informed consent
Patients must be fluent in the English language to participate in the patient report outcome and symptoms monitoring portion of the trial.
Patients are ineligible if they choose not to share their medical data for research purposes.
Prior radiation therapy for treatment of the primary tumor.
Planned concomitant hormonal therapy, chemotherapy, or radiation therapy while on protocol
