Trial Information

Pre-Operative Gleason Score and PSA and Clinical Stage in Predicting the Risk of Failure in Patients Undergoing Radiation Therapy for Localized Prostate Cancer


OBJECTIVES:

- Evaluate the value of the pre-operative Gleason score, prostate-specific antigen level,
and clinical stage in predicting the risk of failure and death in patients who have
undergone radiotherapy for localized prostate cancer.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.

Patient medical records are reviewed to collect data about pre-treatment prostate biopsy,
assigned Gleason score, prostate-specific antigen level, and radionucleotide bone scan.

Patients complete a Bowel Toxicity questionnaire to assess quality of life related to acute
and long-term bowel toxicity after radiotherapy.
