Abstract:

The Veterans Affairs VA prostate cancer cohort is an ideal study sample to study disparities in predictors of adverse prostate cancer outcomes. We have successfully merged and cleaned the data on prostate cancer clinical characteristics and BMI calculations over multiple time points. Results from this study will help prostate cancer patients at high risk for recurrence or prostate cancer related death by identifying potential modifiable factors.
