This study aimed to investigate the effects of prostate cancer on patients' physical activity, kinesiophobia, fatigue and functionality. This research is a prospective study to be conducted on volunteer individuals between the ages of 40-75. People diagnosed with prostate cancer (study group) and healthy adults who have not been diagnosed with prostate cancer before (control group) will be included in the study. The demographic characteristics, physical activity levels and quality of life of all individuals participating in the study will be evaluated with an online form. In demographic data, physical, sociodemographic data such as age (years), height (cm), body weight (kg), body mass index (kg/m2) and disease-specific information will be recorded. Physical activity level will be measured with the International Physical Activity Survey short form (UFAA), fatigue with the Functional Evaluation of Chronic Disease Treatment-Fatigue Questionnaire, fear of movement with the Causes of Fear of Movement Questionnaire, and quality of life with the Functional Evaluation of Cancer Treatment-Prostate Version questionnaire (KHTFD-Y).
The study should evaluate the biological distribution of [99mTc]Tc-BQ0413 in patients with prostate cancer. The primary objective are: 1. To assess the distribution of [99mTc]Tc- BQ0413 in normal tissues and tumors at different time intervals. 2. To evaluate dosimetry of [99mTc]Tc- BQ0413. 3. To study the safety and tolerability of the drug [99mTc]Tc- BQ0413 after a single injection in a diagnostic dosage. The secondary objective are: 1. To compare the obtained [99mTc]Tc- BQ0413 SPECT imaging results with the data of CT and/or MRI and/or ultrasound examination and immunohistochemical (IHC) studies in prostate cancer patients.
The purpose is to assess and describe the oncological and functional outcomes following the introduction of curative targeted focal brachytherapy of prostate cancer in Denmark. Men with a single MRI-identifiable prostate cancer index-tumour who fulfil inclusion criteria and are candidates for curative treatment. Eligible men will undergo curative intended targeted focal brachytherapy for treatment of histologically confirmed prostate cancer. The intervention will include Low- (LDR) or High (HDR) dose rate targeted focal brachytherapy of prostate cancer. Collection of data on safety, morbidity, side effects and quality of life. Collection of clinical data on treatment efficacy, progression, and mortality. All patients will have a follow up of 10-years for oncological outcome, 5-years for acute- and late toxicity-, and 2-years for functional outcomes, respectively. The follow up will include clinical data, MRI, confirmatory biopsies, and questionnaires at specific fixed time points pre-and post-operatively after 1-3 days, 4-weeks, 3-, 6--, 9-, 12-, 18-, and 24-months followed by every 6 months up to 5-yr and then every year up to 10-yr follow-up. Anticipated number of patients is 50 and regular analysis and reporting will be performed continuously. The first short-term analysis will be after 18-months of follow-up after confirmatory MRI and biopsies, and the final reporting will be after 10-years follow-up in 2035.
Men with localized prostate cancer (PCa) are often treated with surgery, a treatment that is associated with high rates of side effects such as erectile dysfunction (ED) and urinary incontinence (UI) which impact quality of life. Yoga may improve control of UI and improve ED by bringing awareness to and strengthening the pelvic floor musculature. The randomized controlled pilot study is to assess the feasibility of an innovative hybrid (in-person and virtual) twice-weekly yoga program that includes a prehabilitation component and to obtain preliminary data that will help assess its potential effectiveness in alleviating PCa treatment symptom burden (primarily ED and UI). The long-term goal is to develop a scalable and sustainable yoga program that helps cancer survivors manage their treatment side effects.
Determine the impact of a laparoscopic-guided transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block timing (at initiation or conclusion of procedure) on the postoperative pain experience in patients following robot assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (RALP).
The purpose of the study is to quantify the concordance of MPS results between first-catch urine samples collected post-DRE and those collected without a DRE.
The PROFIT study has two complementary aims. The first aim is to compare, in a cohort study enrolling N=257 older adults (>65 years) with lung, gastrointestinal and prostate cancer, different easy measures of frailty (Geriatric 8 questionnaire (G8), Short physical Performance Battery (SPPB) and the IF-VIG), testing their ability to predict survival, functional status (ECOG, Barthel Index), quality of life (EuroQol5D) and resources utilization (visits, hospital admissions, treatments) at 3, 6 and 12 months. The second aim, which motivates the registration in ClinicalTrials.gov, is to conduct a randomized controlled trial (RCT) enrolling N=134 patients per group, with similar characteristics to those enrolled for aim 1, but with mild-moderate frailty (G8≤14 points); we will compare a multi-component CGA-based intervention including physical exercise and nutritional recommendations with usual care, measuring the impact on the same outcomes as for aim 1, at 3 and 6 months. The use of ad hoc eHealth solutions (App/platform for exercise) will foster patients' empowerment and sustainability of the intervention. We will also assess patients, caregivers, and professionals' experience with the intervention through focus groups. Participants will be recruited from outpatients and from post-acute care units.
This Pilot Study is to investigate the tear proteins in a multitude of cancer types and indulge in biomarker discovery to manufacture simple, accurate, and novel tear-based diagnostic tests.
The purpose of this research study is to test new ways to improve the usefulness of the world's first total-body positron emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT) scanner (EXPLORER) by collecting data from PET scans using one of three different imaging agents: 18F-PSMA; 18F-FES; or, 68Ga DOTATATE. These imaging agents are approved by the FDA to be used for patients diagnosed with prostate cancer (18F-PSMA), neuroendocrine tumor (68Ga DOTATATE), or breast cancer (18F-FES).
The PROMOD study is an international multicenter retrospective Project. The aim is to create a comprehensive database that will include multiple heterogeneous cohorts in order to explore inter-center differences in the accuracy of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) in the diagnosis of prostate cancer and to define optimal strategies for the selection of men at risk of clinically significant prostate cancer who might benefit from biopsies.
