Article
Objectives: Maintenance therapy after response to platinum has been shown in clinical trials to prolong progression-free survival in patients with recurrent ovarian cancer. We sought to describe current practice patterns for patients receiving maintenance therapy for recurrent ovarian cancer from real-world usage. Methods: We conducted a retrospect...

PurposeNumerous treatment breakthroughs for patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) have been demonstrated in clinical trials in the past 15 years. However, real-world evidence on the changing epidemiology and longevity of this population has not been demonstrated. This study assessed prevalence trends for mCRPC over e...
Article
e18702 Background: Although ovarian cancer (OC) represents about 1% of all new cancer cases in the US, it is the 5th leading cause of cancer death among women. Several maintenance therapies have been introduced (ie, bevacizumab and poly[ADP-ribose] polymerase inhibitors [PARPi]) to extend the time between chemotherapy and relapse (ie, progression-f...
Article
61 Background: We describe the association between clinically significant events (CSEs) and mCRPC treatments in US-insured patients using an administrative claims database. Methods: Adult men in a large administrative claims database from Jan 2008 to Mar 2019 with ≥1 claim for prostate cancer, codes for pharmacologic or surgical castration, and inc...
Article
Objective: A budget impact model was constructed to assess the incremental budget impact that rucaparib availability would have on a US health plan. Methods: An incremental budget impact was estimated over a 3-year horizon as the difference in total annual cost of treatment, with and without rucaparib available, for second-line maintenance, thir...
Article
e19319 Background: Prostate cancer (PC) is the most common cancer among men in the United States. Once the disease progresses to mCRPC, initial castration modalities may not be sufficient. This real-world data study describes the treatment patterns and pharmacy costs of US-insured patients with mCRPC. Methods: Adult males in an administrative claim...
Article
e13592 Background: To date, there has been a paucity of information in the literature describing the epidemiology of mCRPC within the prostate cancer population. We present a real-world data study describing characteristics and mortality of patients with mCRPC within an administrative claims database of an insured population within the United State...
Article
This study examined risk factors associated with self-reported health (SRH) in a genetically informative sample of older African American female twins. An interview was conducted with a national sample of 180 African American female twin pairs. Questions included: SRH, demographics, health behaviors, chronic diseases, and functional status. SRH was...

As the first year of the grant was dedicated to study start-up activities, no results from the main study are yet available. A descriptive epidemiology study comparing racial trends in prostate cancer incidence rates in Illinois and the United States was undertaken. The objective of this study was to examine trends in Illinois and US prostate cance...

This study examines factors associated with depressive symptoms in a genetically informative sample of African-American female twins aged 65 years and older. A telephone interview was conducted with 180 pairs of twins. Questions included demographics, health behaviors, health status, activities of daily living (ADLs), instrumental ADLs, and depress...
Article
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is associated with psychological impairment, and further research is required to understand their relationship. We present descriptive baseline results from a longitudinal observational study of North American men seeking treatment for ED. Patients completed clinical and health-related quality-of-life information at baseli...
Article
The direction of the relationship between psychological adjustment and erectile dysfunction (ED) is unclear and may differ for different men, and few studies have examined psychological outcomes for men receiving ED treatment. This study assessed the impact of ED therapy at baseline and 12-month follow-up, using standard psychological measures. Usi...
Article
We investigated the association of obesity with prostate cancer case demographics and clinical disease features at presentation. Data were abstracted from CaPSURE (Cancer of the Prostate Strategic Urologic Research Endeavor), a disease registry of 10,018 men with prostate cancer. A total of 2,952 men were included who were treated between 1989 and...
Article
: Comorbid disorders and multiple prescription drug use are common among patients with gout and/or hyperuricemia and may influence the clinical course and outcome of gout. : We wanted to document the conditions and associated medications in a large group of patients with gout in a managed care setting. : This study was a 2-year, retrospective, admi...
Article
Purpose: Watchful waiting is an alternative to active treatment for men with low risk prostate cancer but it is unclear how health related quality of life (HRQoL) may change over time for men who select this option. We report on HRQoL in men with localized prostate cancer who selected watchful waiting. Materials and methods: HRQoL outcomes were...
Article
Watchful waiting is an alternative to active treatment for men with low risk prostate cancer but it is unclear how health related quality of life (HRQoL) may change over time for men who select this option. We report on HRQoL in men with localized prostate cancer who selected watchful waiting. HRQoL outcomes were reviewed for 310 men diagnosed with...

Poor compliance with gout medications has been recognized, but seldom studied. We investigated compliance with allopurinol among managed care enrollees suspected to have gout. This was a retrospective, administrative claims-based analysis of patients with gout. Compliance with allopurinol was measured using prescription-fill dates and days-supplied...

To determine whether the prevalence of gout and/or clinically significant hyperuricemia increased in a managed care population over 10 years. The study was a descriptive analysis utilizing an administrative claims database to ascertain 10-year trends in prevalence of gout and/or hyperuricemia. Prevalence rates were calculated cross-sectionally for...
Article
The Kattan preoperative nomogram combines preoperative prostate specific antigen (PSA), biopsy Gleason grade and clinical stage to estimate disease recurrence after radical prostatectomy. Several studies using patient data from academic centers have validated the nomogram. We assessed the performance of the Kattan nomogram using the Cancer of the P...
Article
The Cancer of the Prostate Strategic Urologic Research Endeavor (CaPSURE) is a national disease registry of more than 10,000 patients with prostate cancer treated at 31 primarily community-based sites across the country. The database tracks oncologic and health-related quality-of-life outcomes. Because the urologists participating in the project tr...

We assessed the impact of erectile dysfunction therapy on 1-year health related quality of life using a validated erectile dysfunction specific instrument. Using an observational erectile dysfunction registry clinical, sociodemographic and health related quality of life information was collected at baseline, and 3, 6 and 12 months later. Only men w...
Article
Purpose: To our knowledge the relationship between the underlying etiology of erectile dysfunction and its impact on health related quality of life has not been studied. Such a study is important for men with prostate cancer, as the potential negative quality of life impact of erectile dysfunction may affect clinical decision making in newly diagn...
Article
Little is known regarding how diabetic men with erectile dysfunction (ED) differ from the general population of impotent men. The primary objective of this study was to compare disease-specific health-related quality of life (HRQOL) and severity of ED in impotent men with and without diabetes. Validated functional and HRQOL questionnaires (includin...
