This research project results from the interest in continuing the collaboration with the previous LL-HURS-ONC001 clinical validation study, which gives cause to the present study. LL-HURS-ONC001 was carried out with the participation of HURS' Principal Investigator and the team of experts in prostate cancer, as well as with the participation of the Sponsor's scientific and development team, Life Length SL, led by Dr. Najarro.
The main objective of this study is to demonstrate the efficacy of the PROSTAV test in cutting down on unnecessary biopsies in prostate cancer screening/early diagnosis. PROSTAV is a minimally invasive test, easy to implement as biomarker for prostate cancer diagnosis. The efficacy of the PROSTAV test is clinically validated by the results obtained in a previous study, LL-HURS-ONC001.
The purpose of this study is to advance in the development of new biomarkers in areas where there is a clinical need and where the telomeric profile influences medical decisions within the patient's clinical context. The association level between each individual's telomere biology and the results of the prostate biopsy will be confirmed. Data will be collected to subsequently delve deeper into and accurately establish the effect of this measure in prostate cancer patient management to substantiate its implementation in standard care.

patients at prostate cancer risk diagnosed
The study is composed of one single subject cohort. After risk evaluation, prostate biopsies will be performed for diagnostic purposes on all recruited patients. The cases are sorted into two groups after diagnosis:
- Telomere Associated Variables [ Time Frame: One day single measurement ]This is a clinical multicenter study focused on evaluating the efficacy of the PROSTAV test in patients at risk of prostate cancer based on data of telomere associated variables (TAV) as risk-score. The study comprises one single prospective observational phase.
