Important CoC Special Study Update

Thanks to everyone for your positive responses as the CoC Special Study on follow-up and recurrence after prostate cancer treatment gets on its way. By now many of you have already logged on to the web form and have begun to start planning your data collection.

We are aware that some registrars have had technical issues when submitting ineligible patients. We have resolved this issue as of this morning. However, due to this issue the patient lists for some facilities have changed. Please be sure to check your list of patients as you move forward with data collection. Due to these issues, we will be extending the deadline to July 24. We truly apologize for the inconvenience this has caused.

If you have submitted eligible cases and these cases are not showing up in the “Patient Data Previously Submitted” section, email

We greatly appreciate your participation and patience through this launch and look forward to talking to everyone on an upcoming webinar.
