What is Trip?

Trip is a clinical search engine designed to allow users to quickly and easily find and use high-quality research evidence to support their practice and/or care.

Trip has been online since 1997 and in that time has developed into the internet’s premier source of evidence-based content. Our motto is ‘Find evidence fast’ and this is something we aim to deliver for every single search.

As well as research evidence we also allow clinicians to search across other content types including images, videos, patient information leaflets, educational courses and news.

721. Ten-year follow-up of radiation therapy oncology group protocol 92-02: a phase III trial of the duration of elective androgen deprivation in locally advanced prostate cancer (Abstract)

as in all other end points herein.LTAD as delivered in this study for the treatment of locally advanced prostate cancer is superior to STAD for all end points except survival. A survival advantage for LTAD + RT in the treatment of locally advanced tumors with a Gleason score of 8 to 10 suggests that this should be the standard of treatment for these high-risk patients.

723. Prostate cancer-specific survival following salvage radiotherapy vs observation in men with biochemical recurrence after radical prostatectomy. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Prostate cancer-specific survival following salvage radiotherapy vs observation in men with biochemical recurrence after radical prostatectomy. Biochemical disease recurrence after radical prostatectomy often prompts salvage radiotherapy, but no studies to date have had sufficient numbers of patients or follow-up to determine whether radiotherapy improves survival, and if so, the subgroup of men most likely to benefit.To quantify the relative improvement in prostate cancer-specific survival (...) of salvage radiotherapy vs no therapy after biochemical recurrence following prostatectomy, and to identify subgroups for whom salvage treatment is most beneficial.Retrospective analysis of a cohort of 635 US men undergoing prostatectomy from 1982-2004, followed up through December 28, 2007, who experienced biochemical and/or local recurrence and received no salvage treatment (n = 397), salvage radiotherapy alone (n = 160), or salvage radiotherapy combined with hormonal therapy (n = 78).Prostate cancer

724. Prostate cancer. (Abstract)

% of patients with advanced prostate cancer, but most tumours relapse within 2 years to an incurable androgen-independent state. The recorded incidence of prostate cancer has substantially increased in the past two decades, probably because of the introduction of screening with prostate-specific antigen, the use of improved biopsy techniques for diagnosis, and increased public awareness. Trends in mortality from the disease are less clearcut. Mortality changes are not of the same magnitude as the changes (...) in incidence, and in some countries mortality has been stable or even decreased. The disparity between reported incidence and mortality rates leads to the probable conclusion that only a small proportion of diagnosed low-risk prostate cancers will progress to life-threatening disease during the lifetime of the patient.

were low quality. Outcomes: mortality and number of men diagnosed with prostate cancer. Secondary outcomes were prostate cancers by stage and grade at diagnosis, metastatic disease, quality of life, costs associated with screening, or harms of screening. MAIN RESULTS Reanalysis using intention to screen showed that groups did not differ for death from prostate cancer in 1 RCT and 1 quasi-RCT, respectively (table). More patients were diagnosed with prostate cancer in the screened group than (...) whether early detection of prostate cancer does more good than harm. In the meantime, some guidelines recommend counselling patients regarding the pros and cons of PSA testing and individualising the screening decision. Men should know that if they choose PSA screening, they substantially increase their lifetime risk of dealing with prostate cancer in exchange for an uncertain reduction in their risk of eventually dying from the disease.

727. Quality of life and satisfaction with outcome among prostate-cancer survivors. (Abstract)

Quality of life and satisfaction with outcome among prostate-cancer survivors. We sought to identify determinants of health-related quality of life after primary treatment of prostate cancer and to measure the effects of such determinants on satisfaction with the outcome of treatment in patients and their spouses or partners.We prospectively measured outcomes reported by 1201 patients and 625 spouses or partners at multiple centers before and after radical prostatectomy, brachytherapy (...) satisfaction with the degree of overall treatment outcomes. Changes in quality of life were significantly associated with the degree of outcome satisfaction among patients and their spouses or partners.Each prostate-cancer treatment was associated with a distinct pattern of change in quality-of-life domains related to urinary, sexual, bowel, and hormonal function. These changes influenced satisfaction with treatment outcomes among patients and their spouses or partners.Copyright 2008 Massachusetts Medical

728. Cumulative Association of Five Genetic Variants with Prostate Cancer. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Cumulative Association of Five Genetic Variants with Prostate Cancer. Single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in five chromosomal regions--three at 8q24 and one each at 17q12 and 17q24.3--have been associated with prostate cancer. Each SNP has only a moderate association, but when SNPs are combined, the association may be stronger.We evaluated 16 SNPs from five chromosomal regions in a Swedish population (2893 subjects with prostate cancer and 1781 control subjects) and assessed the individual (...) and combined association of the SNPs with prostate cancer.Multiple SNPs in each of the five regions were associated with prostate cancer in single SNP analysis. When the most significant SNP from each of the five regions was selected and included in a multivariate analysis, each SNP remained significant after adjustment for other SNPs and family history. Together, the five SNPs and family history were estimated to account for 46% of the cases of prostate cancer in the Swedish men we studied. The five SNPs
