Read our disclaimer for details.
The aim of this non-interventional (observational) study is to document, in collaboration with established urologists in Scandinavia, experience gained from routine use of Vantas® for the treatment of patients with advanced prostate cancer. In this observational study particular attention will be directed to treatment duration, quality of life and patient and physician acceptance of the medicinal product for long-term therapy. Patient-based measurement parameters such as quality of life and degree of satisfaction will allow registration of information that extends beyond the clinical parameters. The knowledge gathered will enable patient acceptance of long-term therapy to be evaluated. Clinical outcome will also be documented by measuring serum testosterone and prostate specific antigen (PSA) levels.
