|Study Design:||Primary Purpose: Prevention|
|Official Title:||Bladder Cancer Prognosis Programme (Incorporating SELENIB Trial)|
- Recurrence-free interval
- Progression-free interval
- Overall survival time
- Incidence of transitional cell carcinoma outside the bladder
- Incidence of all other malignancies clinically diagnosed
- Incidence of cardiovascular events
- Quality of life as measured by EORTC QLQ-C30, QLQ-BLS24 and QLQ-BLM30 questionnaires
|Study Start Date:||December 2005|
- To assess the effect of lifestyle factors (e.g., smoking, dietary habits, fluid intake, or environmental exposures) on the recurrence and progression of bladder cancer.
- To assess the impact of selenium and/or vitamin E on the progression and recurrence of bladder cancer.
- To study health-related quality of life and its association with recurrence and progression of bladder cancer.
- To establish a bladder cancer tissue bank that will comprise blood, urine, and bladder tissue.
- To study the predictive effect of molecular markers on the recurrence and progression of bladder cancer.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
The study will be based on a cohort of patients with newly detected bladder cancer in all 16 urological centres within the West Midlands, commencing in late 2005 for a period of 5 years. This research project consists of 5 individual studies: CRUK-BCPP-2005-01-COHORT, CRUK-BCPP-2005-01-MARKERS, CRUK-BCPP-2005-01-QOL, CRUK-BCPP-2005-01-TISSUE-BANK, and CRUK-BCPP-2005-01-TREATMENT. Patients may participate in all or only some of these individual studies.
