Long-Term Follow-Up Study of Patients Who Were Diagnosed With Prostate Cancer While Undergoing Treatment on a Prostate Cancer Prevention Trial

2014-08-27 03:46:16 | BioPortfolio

Summary

RATIONALE: Learning about the long-term effects of chemoprevention drugs, such as finasteride, in patients with prostate cancer may help doctors plan better treatment and follow-up care.

PURPOSE: This clinical trial is following patients who were diagnosed with prostate cancer while undergoing treatment with either finasteride or a placebo on the Prostate Cancer Prevention Trial (PCPT).

Description

OBJECTIVES:

- Compare the time to metastases in patients who were diagnosed with high grade or low grade prostate cancer on or before December 31, 2003 and were treated with finasteride or placebo while enrolled on the Prostate Cancer Prevention Trial (SWOG-9217).

- Compare the difference in time to secondary therapy after definitive therapy with radiotherapy or radical prostatectomy in these patients.

- Compare the difference in time to prostate-specific antigen recurrence after definitive therapy with radiotherapy or radical prostatectomy in these patients.

- Compare the difference in all-cause and prostate cancer mortality in these patients.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study. Patients are stratified according to survival status (alive vs deceased).

Patients provide information about their general health, prostate cancer treatment history, prostate cancer status (i.e., disease progression and metastases data), and prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test results at baseline and then every 6 months for up to 8 years. Next of kin of deceased patients are asked to release the patients' medical records in order to obtain information about the patients' prostate cancer treatment history, prostate cancer progression and metastases, PSA test results, and cause of death.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Approximately 2,397 patients will be accrued for this study.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A glycoprotein that is a kallikrein-like serine proteinase and an esterase, produced by epithelial cells of both normal and malignant prostate tissue. It is an important marker for the diagnosis of prostate cancer.

A measurement index derived from a modification of standard life-table procedures and designed to take account of the quality as well as the duration of survival. This index can be used in assessing the outcome of health care procedures or services. (BIOETHICS Thesaurus, 1994)

Activities and programs intended to assure or improve the quality of care in either a defined medical setting or a program. The concept includes the assessment or evaluation of the quality of care; identification of problems or shortcomings in the delivery of care; designing activities to overcome these deficiencies; and follow-up monitoring to ensure effectiveness of corrective steps.

A generic concept reflecting concern with the modification and enhancement of life attributes, e.g., physical, political, moral and social environment; the overall condition of a human life.

Component of the NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH. It conducts and supports clinical and basic research to establish a scientific basis for the care of individuals across the life span, from the management of patients during illness and recovery to the reduction of risks for disease and disability; the promotion of healthy lifestyles; the promotion of quality of life in those with chronic illness; and the care for individuals at the end of life. It was established in 1986.
