Engaging a community of investigators and patient representatives to create and develop a global strategic approach to decrease deaths from prostate cancer

Objectives and Aims


Greater integration of all scientific disciplines, pharma companies, co-operative groups, regulatory agencies and patient representatives for designing and conducting and analyzing clinical trial and registry data. This will limit needless duplication while preserving and harnessing opportunities for assessing requisite reproducibility of findings.


Integration of new endpoints into clinical trials that expedite the determination of whether new therapies improve the outcome (survival and quality of life) of men with high risk, localized and metastatic hormone-sensitive prostate cancer.


Validation of putative biomarkers (tissue or blood-based, imaging) to help assign the right therapy for the right patient at the right time.
