long-term study; follow-up study
Explanation:
Verlaufsstudie appears to be a term unique to German clinical studies. The various translations found in the English abstracts of German publications are:
follow-up study
longitudinal study
xx-year evaluation

Searches on "follow-up study" and "longitudinal study" will bring up a wealth of hits, ALL of which originate in German-speaking countries, with "follow-up study" being the most prevalent. To my (untrained) mind, follow-up does not equate to Verlauf, which is why I thought that long-term study might be an alternative. Anyway, see what you can do with this info.

observation study or chronological study


Explanation:
Here is my theory.

The term "Verlauf" indicates a study where something is studied over a period of time therefore my suggestions would be "observation study or chronological study" whatever fits better.
