COMPRAYA studie

Adolescents and young adults (AYA), aged 18–39 years at first cancer diagnosis, are recognized as a distinct population within the oncology community due to the unique challenges they encounter including recognition, diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring of their disease. It is imperative for advances in the field of AYA oncology to pool data sources (patient-reported outcomes, clinical, treatment, genetic, and biological data) across institutions and countries and create large cohorts that include the full range of AYA ages and diagnoses to be able to address the many pressing questions that remain unanswered in this vulnerable population. The Dutch COMPRAYA study aims to examine the incidence, risk factors, and mechanisms of impaired health outcomes (short- and long-term medical and psychosocial effects) over time among AYA cancer patients. The overarching aim is to provide a research infrastructure for (future) data analyses and observational retrospective/prospective ancillary studies and to expand data collection to other countries.
