RATIONALE: Measuring bone mineral density may help doctors predict whether prostate cancer will come back. It may also help the study of prostate cancer in the future.
PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying whether bone mineral density affects cancer recurrence in patients with early stage prostate cancer.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment|
|Osteoporosis Prostate Cancer||Procedure: dual x-ray absorptiometry|
- Determine bone mineral density (BMD) in patients with clinically significant early stage prostate cancer.
- Determine whether patients who have a higher level of BMD and have had a radical prostatectomy for cure are less likely to have an early relapse (i.e., less than 3 years) than those patients with a low level of BMD.
OUTLINE: This is a case-controlled study followed by a prospective, longitudinal, cohort study.
Patients undergo bone mineral density (BMD) measurements by dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry with a densitometer. Posteroanterior measurements of the total hip are also recorded.
Patients also undergo blood collection to examine markers that provide evidence of systemic disease.
Patients are followed every 6 months for 3 years.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 40 patients will be accrued for this study.

- Procedure: dual x-ray absorptiometry
Dual x-ray absortiometry by densitometer will be performed to measure bone mineral density
- Bone mineral density [ Time Frame: Baseline ]DXA scan will be done after patient signs consent and eligibilty is confirmed
- Prostate Specific Antigen [ Time Frame: Baseline, every 6 months for 3 years ]PSA will be measured to look for biochemical recurrence of prostate cancer
