PCORI provides Evidence Updates to highlight some of our important research findings. Feel free to print or download these materials for personal use.
Early-stage prostate cancer can be treated in different ways. Two recent PCORI-funded research studies provide new information on the effects of treatments and can help patients navigate their treatment decisions.
Treatments for Stroke Prevention
Medications are available to prevent stroke and are recommended for those at risk, including patients with prior stroke and atrial fibrillation. But these treatments are underused, especially in older patients who often have higher risk for stroke. Findings from the PCORI-funded PROSPER study provide new information about the use of these treatments and about their effects on health outcomes that matter most to patients.
Check back for Evidence Updates on additional topics in the coming months.
