About this trial

The Project seeks to Improve the lives of men with advanced prostate cancer by:
• Discovering which treatments work best in the real world, for real people. New therapies are on the rise,
but we need more information to make good judgements.
• Identifying which treatments or combinations of treatments are associated with the highest rates of
survival and quality of life.
• Determining if treatments are associated with side effects and other diseases or conditions.
• Developing a collection of blood samples to allow research on different types of prostate cancer.
• Creating an international partnership to work together and identify what men with advanced prostate
cancer need most to thrive.

Patient Profile

Patients with Metastatic hormone-sensitive prostate cancer (mHSPC) or castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC).
