The Be-RALP database is Belgian prospective multicenter database governed by the Belgian cancer registry. This database investigates the status after robot assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy (RALP) in prostate cancer patients. It was established by a collaboration between the Belgian association of Urology (BAU), the National Institute for Health and Disability Insurance (NIHDI) and the Belgian cancer registry. Between 2009 and 2016, 9235 patients were included in this patient registry. The studied outcomes covered quality of life measures as well as variables covering urinary and erectile function.
Prostate biopsy was offered to 47 consecutive patients with prostate-specific antigen (PSA) over 4 ng/dl or suspicious digital rectal examination (DRE) of whom 16 had undergone a biopsy. Comprehensive validated questionnaires at TIME 0 (pre-biopsy), TIME 1 (before diagnosis, 20 days after biopsy) and TIME 2 (after diagnosis, 40 days after biopsy) accessed patients' erectile (IIEF-5) and voiding (IPSS) functions, Beck scales measured anxiety (BAI), hopelessness (BHS) and depression (BDI), added to the emotional thermometers including five visual analog scales for distress, anxiety, depression, anger and need for help. Mann-Whitney or Friedman tests were obtained among times and studied variables.
This study evaluates whether exercise can reduce treatment-related adverse effects in prostate cancer patients initiating androgen deprivation therapy. Half of recruited participants completed a 3-month exercise intervention, while the other half did not perform any supervised exercise. It was anticipated that exercise would have a positive effect on body composition, cardiorespiratory fitness and quality of life.
The therapeutic efficacy of three types of orchidectomy was ascertained as well as the QoL and scrotal cosmetic satisfaction of patients in the three surgical arms. Two of these surgeries produced a pseudotesticle (BSCO, BESO) while one (BSO) did not.
This is an ethnographic study to investigate the competences and preferences in everyday living of men with prostate cancer, using participant observation and semi-structured interviews. The study will work as the need assessment part of the emil project, which aims to design, develop, implement and evaluate a digital service to support a healthy lifestyle among men with prostate cancer.
STHLM3 is a paired diagnostic trial aiming to assess whether a panel of biomarkers for prostate cancer can substantially reduce the proportion of men referred to biopsy whilst maintaining sensitivity for aggressive prostate cancer
Primary objective of this study is to describe the time in each prostate cancer stage from non-metastatic Hormone Sensitive Prostate Cancer (m0HSPC), metastatic Hormone Sensitive Prostate Cancer (m1HSPC), non-metastatic Castrate-Resistant Prostate Cancer (m0CRPC), metastatic Castrate-Resistant Prostate Cancer (m1CRPC) to progression or death. The secondary objectives of this study are to describe co-medication at each disease stage, to describe co-morbidities at each disease stage and to describe the healthcare resource use and costs associated to each disease stage.
The investigators examined whether a high PI-RADS v2 score correlates with the presence of prostate cancer. In addition, the investigator inspected whether the lesion size as determined by mpMRI correlates with the presence of prostate cancer. Furthermore, the investigators study aimed to determine the sensitivity and specificity of mpMRI with respect to prostate carcinoma detection.
Single-institution retrospective analysis for predictive factors of prostate cancer patients presenting with isolated or limited lymph node (LN) recurrence (1-3 lesions) on F-Ccholine PET-CT (CholPET) treated with SBRT between January 2010 and July 2015.
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 PSA (prostate specific antigen) 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. With some patients, the PSA-value is so low, that conventional nuclear medicine bone scanning or radiological CT or MRI cannot determine where the metastases are. Therefore, [18F]-Choline PET-CT was introduced to improve diagnostic imaging performance. However, in 30 to 40 percent of patients choline-PET does not localize tumor either, especially in small tumors and/or very low PSA values. The PSMA PET is already routinely used in many European centres, and has shown a superior accuracy in these patients as compared to conventional imaging techniques. This has been a very consistent finding in scientifically reported patient studies. Most of these investigations have been performed with PSMA labeled with Gallium-68. The investigators in Ghent, as others, have labeled PSMA with Fluor-18. This tracer provides many advantages, including a higher production yield enabling more patients to be scanned. Also from a perspective of radioprotection and financial costs, Fluor-18 is a better choice. Moreover, several recent studies, comparing Fluor with Gallium modalities seem to suggest equivalent or better diagnostic results, possibly because of a lower aspecific background activity.
