Duke Urology Database and Specimen Bank
The proposed project is aimed to build a Duke University-specific longitudinal urologic surgery database. It will be used as the main resource to support future research within Urology and Duke University.
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Cohort|
|Official Title:||Duke Longitudinal Urologic Surgery Patient Outcome Database|
|Study Start Date:||January 1988|
|Study Completion Date:||November 2012|
|Primary Completion Date:||November 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Specifically, the database will be used for the following future studies. (i) To characterize the biomarkers/protein signature associated with urological diseases; (ii) To clarify the clinical role of the risk factors and their interactions for early detection and optimized treatment of urological diseases, and improvement of post-treatment quality of life; (iii) To develop algorithms and nomograms to accurately predict the outcome of urological diseases.
Retrospective review of subjects data prior to Institutional Review Board approval and prospective review of data on those consented after Institutional Review Board approval.
