A Prospective Observational Cohort Study of Patients with Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer (CRPC) in the United States

The purpose of this study is to describe patterns of care in CRPC patients, as well as health-related quality of life (HRQoL) outcomes associated with CRPC and its management.

This study collects information about patients who have Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer. This information is used to describe patterns of care, disease assessment methods, treatment decisions, treatment settings, and physician referral patterns. This will be used to help us improve scientific understanding of prostate cancer patients with castration-resistant disease and the treatment patterns, quality of life and health care resources and costs associated with its management.
