This study will replicate/validate the risk prediction model developed for the Comparative Effectiveness Analysis of Surgery and Radiation (CEASAR) study in a more diverse patient population to assess generalizability of the model as well as evaluate the relative contribution of the Decipher Prostate Cancer Test and ProstateNext Test from Ambry Genetics, to the risk prediction model for estimating treatment outcomes, and thereby improve personalization of treatment options.

Official Title

Precision Medicine for Early Prostate Cancer: Integrating Biological and Patient Complexity Variables to Predict Treatment Response


The study will contribute a replicable model for improving risk prediction from patient characteristics, clinical severity indicators, and genomic tests to aid in personalizing treatment. The proposed registry would also allow future comparisons of the gene expression used in other competing commercial test. The addition of the suggested genomic classifier and its associations with other patient and clinical characteristics will enhance the ability of future studies, analogous to CEASAR, to accurately predict the risk of tumor aggressiveness in prostate cancer.
