Predicting the Risk of Failure in Patients Undergoing Radiation Therapy for Localized Prostate Cancer
RATIONALE: Gathering information about the Gleason score, prostate-specific antigen (PSA) level, and cancer stage from patients who have undergone radiation therapy for prostate cancer may help doctors predict how patients respond to treatment and help plan the best treatment.
PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying the Gleason score, PSA level, and cancer stage in predicting outcome in patients who have undergone radiation therapy for localized prostate cancer.

|Official Title:||Pre-Operative Gleason Score and PSA and Clinical Stage in Predicting the Risk of Failure in Patients Undergoing Radiation Therapy for Localized Prostate Cancer|
- Value of the pre-operative Gleason score, prostate-specific antigen level, and clinical stage in predicting the risk of failure and death [ Time Frame: December 2020 ]
|Study Start Date:||February 1993|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||June 2021|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||December 2020 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
- Evaluate the value of the pre-operative Gleason score, prostate-specific antigen level, and clinical stage in predicting the risk of failure and death in patients who have undergone radiotherapy for localized prostate cancer.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Patient medical records are reviewed to collect data about pre-treatment prostate biopsy, assigned Gleason score, prostate-specific antigen level, and radionucleotide bone scan.
Patients complete a Bowel Toxicity questionnaire to assess quality of life related to acute and long-term bowel toxicity after radiotherapy.
