About the Study
PROMISE is a nationwide registry of prostate cancer patients with inherited mutations by screening approximately 5,000 participants with a prostate cancer diagnosis.
The PROMISE team is studying how these mutations affect patient outcomes. We hope to help patients learn more about their disease, the treatments that they may benefit most from, and any research studies that they may be eligible for.

What the Study Entails
Study participants will be asked to:
- Provide a saliva sample to be tested for germline cancer risk variants through Color Health. If the results identify a pathogenic or likely pathogenic variant, an appointment with a genetic counselor from Color Health will be scheduled to discuss the results.
- Genetic testing and the genetic counselor appointment are free.
- Fill out a survey that includes self-reported health history, family history of cancer and standardized patient reported outcome (PRO) measures.
- PROMISE registry staff will request medical records from the participant's cancer care provider(s) to obtain clinical data.
- Participants with certain inherited mutations will be followed every 6 months to obtain updated health records data and patient-reported outcomes data. Participants will be followed for a minimum of 15 years.
- Participants will receive newsletters twice a year with information on new developments in treatment and research opportunities, including clinical trials, associated with genetic variants.
PROMISE is completely free. Participants don’t have to leave their current healthcare provider or their house to join.
