More on Ironman

Prostate cancer becomes “advanced” once it’s spread outside of the prostate gland, to other parts of the body. This entire experience can be very painful, confusing and overwhelming, and really take a toll on a man’s overall health. IRONMAN has brought together a large network of doctors and researchers to tackle this problem and support men all over the world.

IRONMAN currently operates across Australia, Brazil, Canada, Ireland, South Africa, Switzerland, Sweden, United Kingdom and U.S.A. We hope to extend the project to other countries in the coming years.

Before signing anything, you’ll be able to ask any questions you’d like. Once you’ve agreed to the terms, you’ll get a copy of your signed forms to keep safe. Research staff will be there to explain the process in detail, and help you along the way. Be sure to bring up any concerns you have. 

Provide full contact information for yourself as well as someone close to you (like a close family member or friend). This is so staff are able to get in touch when necessary.

Keep informed

IRONMAN is the largest registry of its kind for advanced prostate cancer. There will be ongoing updates about its progress from doctors and researchers - and we’d like to make sure you get them all.

If you are interested in participating in the study but IRONMAN is not in an area where you live, leave your details so we can let you know if the project will open near you.
