A Laboratory Study to Evaluate Urine and Blood Biomarkers That Can Distinguish Between the Presence or Absence of Aggressive Prostate Cancer
Condition or disease
The over-arching goal of this study is to evaluate if biomarkers within the blood or urine of men with localized prostate cancer can distinguish between those with indolent cancer, defined as Gleason Grade Groups 1 and 2 and those with more aggressive disease (Gleason Grade Groups 3, 4, and 5).
Characterize the distribution of clinical/pathological factors of the samples by the Gleason Grade Group and to characterize the distribution of the signal of each biomarker by the Gleason Grade Group or combination of groups. [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
