Prostatectomy & Radiation Therapy
The Center is collaborating with Timothy Showalter, MD, from the Department of Radiation Oncology, now at the Univeristy of Virginia, on a project which uses the Emilia-Romagna longitudinal database to identify men who have had a radical prostatectomy for prostate cancer and assess complications of post-prostatectomy radiation therapy. The goal of the project is to improve our understanding of real-world complications in order to to provide information that can help decision making about the use of radiotherapy after prostatectomy for pateints with high risk prostate cancer.
With support from the American Cancer Society, we are collaborating with Scott Keith, PhD, in a project investigating survival benefits associated with angiotensin blackage therapies in pancreatic cancer patients.
