The aim of this study was to determine the kinetics of perioperative circulating DNA in three types of cancer. This first step will enable further studies comparing the potential impact of certain techniques or anesthetic products on cancer surgery.
Focused stereotactic radiation treatment of localized prostatic adenocarcinoma. in order to quantify the delay between the focused treatment and the salvage procedure.
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if adding abiraterone acetate and standard of care prednisone to the combination of apalutamide and a standard type of drug called an LHRH agonist can help to control prostate cancer when given before surgery. The safety of these drug combinations will also be studied. This is an investigational study. Apalutamide is not FDA approved or commercially available. It is currently being used for research purposes only. The combination of abiraterone acetate, LHRH agonists, and prednisone is FDA approved and commercially available for the treatment of metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC). Both drug combinations being used in this study are considered investigational. Up to 66 participants will be enrolled in this study. All will take part at MD Anderson.
Patients diagnosed with localized prostate cancer may be eligible for different treatment options. MAASTRO Clinic (MAAStricht Radiation Oncology) developed a web-based decision aid tool for these patients. The goal of the tool is to help patients to understand the treatments, and empower the patients to participate in the decision making process. The aim of this study is threefold: (A) user-testing and validation of the tool, by using a systematically development process compliant with the IPDAS (International Patients Decision Aids Standards) criteria (B) establish the impact of the tool on the decision making process; (C) identify barriers and facilitators for the implementation of shared decision making and the tool in clinical practice. The study covers 3 phases: 1. Development phase 1.1 Assess decisional needs of patients and clinicians. 1.2 Test patients' and clinicians' comprehensibility, acceptability and usability on the alpha-version of the tool. 1.3 Value clarification: Delphi study with former prostate cancer patients to determine the most important patient preferences and value clarification aspects the decision aid should include. 2. Implementation phase: Develop an implementation and dissemination plan for shared decision-making which is based on the evaluation of barriers and facilitators for the use of patient decision aid tools in clinical practice. 3. Evaluation phase: Establish the impact of on knowledge, decisional conflict and the shared decision-making process, as well as the extent to which clinicians involve patients in decision-making. A mixed method will be used. It comprises structured interviews combined with think aloud and questionnaires with stakeholders involved in the whole process of development, implementation and evaluation (patients, urologists, radiotherapists, nurses, general practitioners, patient organizations, and insurance companies).
This is an open−label, single−center Phase I dose escalation study designed to determine the dose−limiting toxicity (DLT) and the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of 225Ac−J591 in a single dose regimen.
It is hypothesized that treatment with cisplatin will reverse emerging refractoriness to enzalutimide in patients with CRPC by affecting AR function.
The aim of this project is to determine whether androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) decreases left ventricular function in prostate cancer patients. If found successful, this may lead to improved cardiovascular health via treatment and/or lifestyle interventions in prostate cancer populations.
Ruxolitinib will be dispensed to patients candidate to prostatectomy immediately after histological diagnosis of prostate adenocarcinoma. The treatment will be given for 28 days followed by a prostatectomy thereafter. Tumor material and blood samples will be analysed before, during and after the treatment with Ruxolitinib.
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the difference between the optic nerve sheath diameter measured during total intravenous anesthesia and the optic nerve sheath diameter measured during inhalation anesthesia in patients undergoing robot-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy.
The purpose of the study is to find out the feasibility and effects of ultra-hypofractionated radiotherapy to the prostate and dominant lesion as definitive treatment for intermediate risk prostrate cancer.
