This study will use a population-based cohort design to study men with newly diagnosed low- and intermediate-risk prostate cancer at high-volume centers in Southern California (SCa) and New York State (NYS). Complications of contemporary treatments for prostate cancer and quality of life outcomes, such as general health, urinary, sexual, and bowel function, cancer anxiety, and treatment regret will be compared and tracked over the course of this study.
The study should evaluate the biological distribution of 99mTc-RM26 in patients with prostate cancer and breast cancer. The primary objective are: 1. To assess the distribution of 99mTc- RM26 in normal tissues and tumors at different time intervals. 2. To evaluate dosimetry of 99mTc- RM26. 3. To study the safety and tolerability of the drug 99mTc- RM26 after a single injection in a diagnostic dosage. The secondary objective are: 1. To compare the obtained 99mTc- RM26 SPECT imaging results with the data of CT and/or MRI and/or ultrasound examination and immunohistochemical (IHC) studies in prostate cancer and breast cancer patients.
After recruitment, 20 male patients will be assigned 1:1 to either age-matched control (G1: sham) or age-matched intervention (G2: pelvic magnetic stimulation; TPMS) groups using computer-generated process, and baseline parameters will be established. All patients will be instructed by the investigators to perform standard of care pelvic floor exercise for the duration of the study. In addition, G2 patients will receive TPMS, while G1 patients will undergo sham treatment.
Background: Many digital devices, such as smartphones and activity monitors, have sensors to collect and track health data. Researchers believe these devices may be able to transform the quality of clinical research and healthcare. They believe they may be able to help assess the symptoms, response to therapy, and quality of life of people with cancer. Objective: To collect data from people with cancer using an Apple iPhone alone or together with an Apple Watch in order to assess their symptoms and activity levels. Eligibility: People ages 18 years and over who have cancer and receiving treatment for their cancer in another NIH protocol Design: Participants will be screened with their medical records. Participants will have a baseline visit. They will have visits every 2 4 weeks based on the treatment protocol in which they are co-enrolled. Then they will have a follow-up visit 4 months after the baseline visit. Visits include: Medical history Physical exam Karnofsky Performance Scale/Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group performance status to see how their disease affects daily activities The study team will use an iPhone to collect data. This includes a 6-minute walk test and tests of hearing, reaction time, and cognitive status. Questionnaires If participants have an iPhone, an Apple Watch will be provided to them after training at the baseline visit. Continuous measurement of their activity will be recorded by the watch between 2 visits. They will wear the watch while they are on study. They will wear the watch while it is not being charged. They should charge the watch at night time. They will have the watch for 4 months.
The goal of this pilot randomized controlled trial is to evaluate the impact and efficacy of a streamlined genetic education and testing intervention for men with prostate cancer. Eligible men are prostate cancer survivors who meet criteria for genetic counseling referral. After completing a baseline survey, participants (n=120) are randomized to Streamlined Genetic Testing (ST) or Usual Care (UC). Participants in ST are able to review genetic education materials and then proceed directly to genetic testing. Participants in UC will be provided with a referral for standard individual genetic counseling. Two months after randomization all participants will be contacted to complete a follow-up survey.
Assessment of the effectiveness of care in certified cancer centres for eight cancer entities via a retrospective cohort study based on secondary data from statutory health insurance funds and population-based clinical cancer registries.
The purpose of this study is to survey a sample of adults who have recently made a decision about treatment of high cholesterol or high blood pressure or a decision about screening for colorectal cancer, breast cancer, or prostate cancer. The main goal is to gather evidence of the validity and reliability of the Shared Decision Making Process scale. Secondary goal is to gather evidence on the quality of decisions for these common medical situations.
Single-arm, open-label, phase II trial in 200 competent adult male patients with Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group performance status (ECOG PS) of 0-3 and progressive metastatic prostate cancer, failing, failed, refused, not eligible for or no access to further approved lines of therapy. Patients will undergo sequential FDG positron emission tomography (PET) and 18F-DCFPyL PET to assess FDG/DCFPyL concordance fraction. Patients with DCFPyL/FDG concordance of 50% or greater will be treated with 131I-PSMA-1095 radioligand therapy (RLT). Best post-treatment serum prostate specific antigen response will be compared to concordance fraction.
The main objective of this study is to determine whether focal-driven therapies for diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer are preferable over current clinical methods. Different focal procedures will be examined, including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-target biopsy, and focal treatment as High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU), cryoablation and Nano-Knife.
"Life after prostate cancer" is a prospective, population-based, case-control study where all men diagnosed with Prostate cancer (PCa) from 01.01.2017 regardless of age and disease stage are invited to a survey by questionnaire on their health. Men with no history of PCa are identified through the National Registry, matched on age and region of residence, and invited to the survey as controls. Patients and controls who have signed up for an official digital mailbox are invited electronically. Those who do not have a digital mailbox are invited by regular mail. All participants have given their informed consent for all linkages planned in this study. Due to electronic reporting of histological reports to the Norwegian Prostate Cancer Registry, patients are invited to the survey shortly after diagnosis. More than 6 400 patients have submitted questionnaires per April 2019.
