- Brief summaryThe incidence of prostate cancer has been rising over the last two decades, while the absolute mortality has remained stable. The proportion of men dying WITH prostate cancer instead of FROM prostate cancer has therefore increased. A so called active surveillance strategy of selecting prostate tumors with a favorable prognosis, withholding radical treatment but instead monitoring the tumor with the option of curative treatment at the moment of progression, is indicated in a large proportion of the newly diagnosed prostate cancer. Our international, protocol based, observational study aims to prospectively collect evidence for this stratregy, by applying a strcit protocl of inclusion and followcriteria.
- Main changes (audit trail)29-apr-2017: -EB

1) Histologically proven adenocarcinoma of the prostate.
2) Men should be fit for curative treatment.
3) PSA-level at diagnosis ≤ 10 ng/mL.
4) PSA density (PSA D) less than 0.2.
5) Clinical stage T1C or T2.
6) Gleason score 3+3=6.
7) One or 2 biopsy cores invaded with prostate cancer:
If an MRI, including targeted biopsies on positive lesions, is done at inclusion, there is no limit in the number of positive cores (that is, more than two, and no limit in the % of cancer present in the cores).
If saturation biopsies (either transperineal or transrectal) are done 15% of the cores can be positive with a maximum of 4. (i.e. <20 cores 2 cores can be positive (standard), 20-26 cores 3 cores can be positive, >26 cores 4 cores can be positive) (all other inclusion criteria still apply).
8) Participants must be willing to attend the follow-up visits.
Note: Patients with biopsy Gleason score 3+4 can be followed outside the actual PRIAS protocol.
The patient should be at least 70 years old and should have evidence of limited disease (maximum 10% tumor involvement per biopsy core, maximum 2 cores positive).
Risk reclassification is defined as any upgrading in Gleason score and/or more than 2 positive cores at repeat biopsy.

1) Men who can not or do not want to be radiated or operated.
2) A former therapy for prostate cancer.
