The purpose of this study is to determine how to incorporate a smart water bottle to improve bladder filling for prostate cancer patients undergoing radiation therapy.
Obtain PSMA-PET imaging preoperatively and calculate performance for predicting extra-prostatic extension based on whole-mount pathology (gold standard). Quantify the frequency of proper treatment changes directed by PSMA-PET, focusing on appropriate preservation of surrounding structures important for genito-urinary function including: 1) Bladder neck, 2) Nerve bundles, 3) Urethral Sphincter (Figure 4). Directly compare PSMA-PET performance for predicting extra-prostatic extension to standard-of-care assessments. Assess quality of life changes from preoperative baseline.
This study is being conducted to evaluate if the Embr thermal device is useful for men who experience hot flashes as a result of prostate cancer treatment.
The main objective of this project is to establish a shared comprehensive and systematic protocol for a multicenter prospective registry of patients undergoing salvage cryoablation of the prostate (SCAP). Our study hypothesis is that SCAP constitutes an effective and safe approach to treat local prostate cancer recurrence after brachytherapy or external beam radiation therapy (EBRT).
This study investiagates deep-regional or superficial hyperthermia to enhance radiotherapy or chemoradiation in patients that suffer recurrent disease after previous radiotherapy.
Standard treatment of local or locally advanced prostate cancer is radical prostatectomy (RRP) surgery. During RRP in certain patients extended lymph node dissection (ELND) is recommended. to detect eligible patients for ELND some nomograms based on clinical factors of them is used. The Briganti nomogram is one of them. If the patient has 7% or more probability on Briganti nomogram, then ELND is recommended. But ELND is complicated surgical procedure and may cause labor lost and cost. It is aimed here to show whether the ICG based fluorescence imaging during laparoscopy may yield higher accuracy to detect metastatic LNs than the conventional ELND?
ASCAPE (Artificial intelligence Supporting CAncer Patients across Europe) is a collaborative research project involving 15 partners from 7 countries, including academic medical centers, SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises), research centers and universities, aiming to leverage the recent advances in Big Data and AI (Artificial Intelligence) to support cancer patients' Quality of Life (QoL) and health status. Specifically, ASCAPE aims to provide personalized- and AI-based predictions for QoL issues in breast- and prostate cancer patients as well as suggest potential interventions to their physicians. This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 875351.
This is a retrospective, proof of concept study, which aims at reconstructing the cellular heterogeneity of the tumor in multi-needle diagnostic prostate biopsy as well as any biopsy containing potentially pre-malignant tissue, to study its implications in the clinical history of the disease. For each patient, 2 or more samples will be prepared starting from the FFPE diagnostic material. The biopsy used for assigning the Gleason score will be sequenced, together with two or more of the local peri-proximal biopsies with a higher level of differentiation. Samples will undergo Whole Exome Sequencing with an average coverage of 300x at the Wellcome Sanger Institute (WSI, Hinxton, UK). Sequencing data will be analysed for single nucleotide variants, copy number variants and structural variants by using state-of-the-art data analysis pipeline at WSI. 1. Reconstruction of local PCa heterogeneity in multi-needle diagnostic biopsy with different Gleason scores (6-10) using high-coverage whole exome sequencing (WES) and DP-based clonal analysis; 2. Characterization of the relationships between pathological differentiation (Gleason score) and genomics-measured heterogeneity and malignancy features; 3. Assessment of clinical implications of clonal heterogeneity. The study will include an average of 150 prostatic diagnostic biopsies from a cohort of 20 early metastatic PC patients and 20 non-relapsing/non-metastatic patients with indolent malignant disease.
Prospective, monocentric, single arm, observational PMCF - Study on the Performance and Safety of Double-Shank Titanium Ligation Clip in Urology (Prostatectomy and Nephrectomy)
The purpose of this study is to evaluate a radioactive diagnostic study drug, which is called Gallium-68 Prostate Specific Membrane Antigen ([Ga-68]PSMA) for characterization of prostate abnormalities.
