Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Correlate genotype with pathologic phenotype and clinical outcome. [ Time Frame: one time ]
    The Tissue Bank will store all "Tissue Bank" consents. The patients will be given a unique identifier by the tissue bank. However, patients will need to be identified to link to clinical data and possible followup (if they have consented) via chart or tumor registries.

Estimated Enrollment: 2000
Study Start Date: April 1999
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2021
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2021 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   Male
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population
Per the original application in 1999: After obtaining informed consent (via the Tissue Bank consent), Protocol # 13873 (Continuing Review) PROTOCOL Print Date: September 22, 2010 PD: James Duane Brooks APPLICATION FORM Page 11 of 22 Review Type: Expedited Human Subjects Research Medical Stanford University Title: Microarray Analysis of Gene Expression in Prostatic Tissues (SQL 76528) Approval Period: 07/31/2010 - 06/30/2011 specimens will be collected from the Stanford University Department of Pathology (Tissue Bank) for patients treated at Stanford. Patients will be followed up via chart or tumor registries. Data will be used strictly for research purposes. Gene expression arrays are done in Dr. Brook's laboratory.

Inclusion Criteria:

- Patient scheduled to undergo either a biopsy or surgery for a prostate condition.

Exclusion Criteria:

- Patients without a prostate condition
