90Background: Prostate biopsy findings at diagnosis and follow-up are essential criteria in Active Surveillance (AS). In a previous work (Nicolai Eur Urol Suppl 2013) upgrading (UPG) and upsizing (UPS) at 1-yr rebiopsy resulted to be independent outcomes with different predictors. Aim of the present work is to validate these models on an independent population and to evaluate the probability of not-developing UPG, thus the chance of continuing AS Methods: Pts enrolled in 2011-2017 were considere...

61Background: Predictive models for late rectal bleeding (LRB) after radiotherapy (RT) for prostate cancer were established by several studies, with good performance on development population (POP). Nonetheless, they were found to be unsatisfactory in their generalization to independent validation cohorts. Aim of the study is to build a metamodel for grade 2-3 (G23) and grade 3 (G3) LRB (LENT/SOMA) starting from literature evidence and to validate it on a new POP. Methods: The metamodel was cons...

A recent “hot topic” in prostate cancer radiotherapy is the observed association between acute/late rectal toxicity and the presence of abdominal surgery before radiotherapy. The exact mechanism is unclear. Our working hypothesis was that a previous surgery may influence plasma level of inflammatory molecules and this might result in enhanced radiosensitivity. We here present results on the feasibility of monitoring the expression of inflammatory molecules during radiotherapy. Plasma levels of a...
