This research study is evaluating the effectiveness of video and web-based communication in clinical research compared to standard practices.
This study will replicate/validate the risk prediction model developed for the Comparative Effectiveness Analysis of Surgery and Radiation (CEASAR) study in a more diverse patient population to assess generalizability of the model as well as evaluate the relative contribution of the Decipher Prostate Cancer Test and ProstateNext Test from Ambry Genetics, to the risk prediction model for estimating treatment outcomes, and thereby improve personalization of treatment options.
Imaging and staging of prostate cancer is critical for surgical and treatment planning. In this protocol we will image patients with suspected metastatic prostate cancer using 11C-Choline PET and Gallium-68 labeled HBED-CC PSMA (more commonly called 68Ga-PSMA-11) in order to demonstrate their utility in detecting prostate cancer.
Post implant dosimetry is an essential part of quality assurance after permanent seed prostate brachytherapy. CT imaging is the standard of assessment but due to contouring uncertainties, MR-CT fusion is preferred. This is not always available due to financial restrictions. This study explores the possibility of post implant US-CT fusion to improve contouring accuracy and potentially replace the use of MR-CT fusion.
The emil project aims to design, develop, implement and evaluate a digital service to support a healthy lifestyle among men with prostate cancer. In this second study, men with a history of prostate cancer are invited to participate in the scoping and design of a digital platform, through three iterations of workshops and individual interviews, which includes prototyping and other ideation processes. Finally, the men with a history of prostate cancer will be involved in the usability testing of the design, to ensure a platform fit for use by the intended users.
Prostate cancer is the most frequently occurring male cancer in Belgium. Patients who have been treated for prostate cancer, i.e. by surgery and/or radiotherapy, in a substantial degree suffer from a tumor recurrence, often diagnosed by an increase in serum tumor marker Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) within the first few years. In these patients with evidence of a tumor recurrence after primary treatment, it is important to most exactly define the location(s) of tumor, to guide appropriate therapy by surgery, radiotherapy and/or hormonotherapy. In so-called oligo-metastatic disease targeted therapy may still be curative and prevent the disease from spreading to distant locations. Therefore it is of paramount importance to have an accurate tool of medical imaging to localize all possible locations to be treated.
A not randomized clinical survey was done in 25 pacients with histological diagnosis confirmed of a prostatic adenocarcinoma and hardy in hormonotherapy at the Calixto Garcia Hospital in Habana (2016-2018). Researches had as identifying goal the efecctiveness study of Oncoxin-Viusid® nutritional supplement as a support to convencional treatment. The patient were treated with habitual doses of Docetacel and 75 mg per day of supplement during and fiften day after the quimiotherapy. The rest of numbers and severety of adverse reactions were determined as well as its influences on life quality when this co-therapy is performed, the evaluation of progresion spare survival and the porcentage of recurrences.
The purpose of the study is to compare the results of three standard of care surgical methods [stapling versus selective suture ligation (cut, then sew) versus single suture ligation (sew, then cut) of the dorsal venous complex (DVC)] during robotic prostate surgery to see which is better for the patient's recovery.
Patient decision aids are tools that help guide individuals through a healthcare-related decision making process. They help users combine evidence-based information and recommendations by a health care provider with their personal needs, values and preferences. Through this project, Dr. Dobbins and her research team will explore whether the use of patient decision aids with high-quality and user-friendly summaries of research evidence, or summaries of research evidence alone, help to improve the quality of decision making by men facing prostate cancer screening decisions.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate High-dose rate (HDR) brachytherapy (1 vs 2 fractions on single implant) as monotherapy for the treatment of low risk and intermediate risk prostate cancer
