Urologic Outcomes Database (UODB)


Urologic Outcomes Database (UODB) Prostate, Bladder and Renal Studies

The Urologic Outcomes Database records detailed clinical baseline and follow-up data on patients seen and treated for genitourinary cancer at UCSF to enhance clinical care and support research in the department. The database contains data on approximately 7,000 prostate cancer patients, and supports research studies including biomarker discovery, nutritional epidemiology, novel therapeutics, quality of life and high-risk markers. Extensive clinical and pathological data on renal cancer patients is also available. The database is funded intramurally and by the UCSF prostate cancer SPORE grant funded by the National Institutes of Health, National Cancer Institute.
