Enlarged Prostate/Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia


Investigating Medication versus Prostatic Urethral Lift: Assessment and Comparison of Therapies for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, or BPH, is a condition in which the prostate enlarges as men get older. BPH is very common – in fact, over 40% of men in their 50’s and over 70% of men in their 60’s have BPH.1 As the prostate enlarges, it presses on and blocks the urethra, causing bothersome urinary symptoms such as:

  • Frequent need to urinate both day and night
  • Weak or slow urinary stream, and/or a stream that stops and starts
  • A sense that you cannot completely empty your bladder
  • Urgent feeling of needing to urinate

While prostate surgery is an option for some, these procedures often require general anesthesia and can also cause long-term side effects such as sexual dysfunction and urinary incontinence.

If you’re living with BPH and are interested in exploring non-surgical treatment options, you may qualify for the IMPACT Clinical Study. The study involves the UroLift® System treatment, an FDA-cleared device designed to relieve BPH symptoms through a simple outpatient procedure.

ASM Study

Development and Validation of Biomarker-based tests for Disease Progression in Prostate Cancer Patients

Phase 1 = Assess urine and blood samples in men with NCCN very low/low/favorable intermediate risk prostate cancer undergoing radical prostatectomy to rule in/out the presence of high-risk prostate cancer

Phase 2 = Assess urine and blood samples in men managed with active surveillance for prostate cancer to rule in/out the presence of high-risk prostate cancer

Myovant 058

A Multi-Center, Prospective, Observational Study of Patients Being Treated with Orgovyx (OPTYX)

This is a multi-center, prospective, observational study of patients being treated with ORGOVYX. The goal of this study is to generate real-world evidence about the safety and effectiveness of ORGOVYX in patients with prostate cancer in routine clinical care and the clinical course during treatment with and following cessation of ORGOVYX.
