Quality of Life in Patients Undergoing Surgery or Brachytherapy for Stage II Prostate Cancer
RATIONALE: Quality of life assessment in patients undergoing prostate cancer treatment may help determine the intermediate-term and long-term effects of surgery and brachytherapy.
PURPOSE: Randomized clinical trial to study quality of life in patients undergoing radical prostatectomy or brachytherapy for stage II prostate cancer.
|Official Title:||Health-Related Quality Of Life In Patients With Low Risk, Localized Prostate Cancer Randomized To Radical Prostatectomy Or Brachytherapy|
|Study Start Date:||September 2002|
|Primary Completion Date:||April 2004 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
- Compare changes in health-related quality of life (HRQOL) in patients with stage II prostate cancer up to 2 years after treatment with radical prostatectomy or brachytherapy.
- Compare the effect of baseline HRQOL, age, and other covariates on HRQOL improvement or deterioration in these patients up to 10 years after these treatments.
- Compare the effect of treatment modality on HRQOL improvement or deterioration in these patients up to 10 years after these treatments.
- Compare the effects of treatment failure on HRQOL, in terms of disease progression, in these patients.
OUTLINE: Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 arms on ACOSOG-Z0070 (radical prostatectomy vs brachytherapy).
Patients in both arms complete a quality of life questionnaire at baseline, 2 and 6 months after treatment, and then at 1, 2, 4, 7, and 10 years after treatment.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 500 patients (250 per group) will be accrued for this study within 2 years.
