Eligibility
Key inclusion criteria
The first stage of the project is a case-control study involving 100 untreated Prostate cancer cases and 100 controls. Cases and controls will be matched for age, gender, familial history of cancer and smoking status.The second stage of the project is a prospective study aimed at determining whether the selected biomarkers predict abnormal tissue reaction in 100 localized Prostate cancer patients treated with RT who have ECOG 0-2 performance status and do not have a constant requirement for aperients or anti-diarrhoeal medication. Age, weight, tumour grade, family history of prostate cancer, use of anti-male hormone therapy and smoking status will be recorded.
