The UCLA ASCAP Project is an Observational, Longitudinal, and Open-ended Study Aimed at Establishing a Structured Program of Non-interventional Follow-up for Localized Prostate Cancer.
This protocol is not designed as a formal clinical trial, but rather an observational
protocol; no treatments and no randomization are included. Longitudinally, specimens and
clinical data will be collected to provide information on the following:
- Imaging studies of the prostate
- Rates of curative intervention
- Measures of tumor recurrence/progression
- Disease specific survival
- Overall survival
- Clinical data to track Quality of Life
Observational Model: Ecologic or Community, Time Perspective: Prospective
Discover and confirm clinical parameters that predict aggressive disease as defined by pre-specified histological, PSA, clinical criteria, or outcomes based on these variables.
