The Danish Testicular Cancer database (DaTeCa) is a nationwide clinical quality database that contains detailed information on more than 300 variables relating to histology, stage, treatment, recurrence, pathology, tumour markers, kidney and lung function, etc.
The main aim of DaTeCa is to improve the quality of diagnosing and treating patients with testicular cancer.
The patient population in DaTeCa covers all males aged ≥15 presenting with an initial diagnosis of testicular cancer according to the National Patient Register (LPR) and/or the Pathology Register (LRP). It includes patients with primary testicular tumour and patients with extra gonadal germ cell tumours. It has however been decided that patients with replacement CPR numbers should be excluded. All departments in Denmark undertaking treatment and care of patients with testicular cancer notify data to DaTeCa.

The Regional Clinical Quality Databases
Data about clinical quality are collected with the purpose of monitoring and raising the quality of patient treatment in the Danish health-care system. These data can, as well as all other public registers, be made accessible for research projects based on systematic protocols and approved according to the relevant legislations.
Applying for access to data from a regional clinical database requires a list of demands to be obtained. A project description should be attached containing a description of the project explaining the rationale, purpose, methods, budget, publication plan etc.
Furthermore, The Danish Data Protection Agency must approve the project.
- Apply via research access (Danish: forskeradgang), an online application system
- Submit the protocol to The Danish Clinical Registries (RKKP)
- RKKP registers the application
- The application is forwarded to the relevant clinical database
- Potential dialog about adjustment to the protocol
- Approval and extradition of data (expected 6 months after application)
