Project HERO is a 12-week study of the efficacy of Body Mind Training (BMT) for reducing fatigue in prostate cancer survivors. This 3-arm randomized clinical trial will examine inflammatory biology and selected gene-expression pathways that are hypothesized to contribute to the intervention's effect.
Prostate cancer (PCa) is ranked 3rd in annual incidence of male cancer and ranked 5th for cancer-related death in men in Hong Kong which accounts for about 9.1 deaths per 100,000 men in 2011. Its incidence is rising rapidly, almost tripled in the past 10 years. In Hong Kong, the two main screening methods for PCa are digital rectal examination (DRE) and serum prostate-specific antigen (PSA) level blood test, and the gold standard of diagnosis of PCa is transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) with prostate biopsy. For those who diagnosed with PCa, there are different kinds of managements depending on patient's age group and disease stage. Watchful waiting is for older patients who presents with low-risk prostate cancer. And active surveillance is applicable to patients who are eligible for potentially curative management. While radiotherapy or radical prostatectomy are recommended as curative management for early stage PCa, androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) is the main treatment modality for advanced or recurrent prostate cancer. Advanced prostate cancer that recurrence is called castration refractory prostate cancer (CRPC). There are many new agents, including second line hormonal therapy, chemotherapy, androgen biosynthesis inhibitors, immunotherapy, bone targeting agents etc., available for the further management. In this study, investigators would like to establish a local prostate cancer registry to facilitate the collection of clinical information and outcomes of prostate cancer management. Hopefully, this registry can provide information regarding the epidemiology, natural history, and treatment outcomes of local prostate cancer. The information would be helpful for research, public education, health care planning and also international collaboration. Ultimately, patients and public would be benefited from these works.
Several studies have shown a great potential of 68Ga-PSMA PET in high risk prostate cancers patients and a high detection rate than 18F-Choline PET. The primary aim of this study is to evaluate the difference of management intent, after the inital staging of high risk prostate cancer patients, with 68Ga-PSMA-11 PET-CT results in comparison of 18F-Choline PET-CT results.
Prostate cancer (CAP) is one of the most common malignancies in men, both in Western countries and developing countries. Radiation therapy (RT) is an important therapeutic option. New technologies (3D, IMRT, IGRT, VMAT) have been introduced in the last decades, with a progressive improvement of clinical outcome. However, in many countries the only treatment option is the traditional 2D technique based on standard simulation. The indications for field definition in this treatment are still based on expert's opinions. The aim of this analysis is to propose new indications for 2D fields definition based on three-dimensional simulation in a population of patients with CAP. Twenty patients with CAP consecutively treated with RT in our center were identified. Patients underwent CT-simulation in supine position. Pelvic MRI images were fused with CT-simulation images. In this way, delineation of the prostate and seminal vesicles was performed on MRI images. Clinical Target Volume definition (CTV) was performed according to EORTC guidelines simulating 4 different categories: low-risk CAP, intermediate-risk CAP, high-risk CAP without involvement of the seminal vesicles, and high-risk CAP with involvement of seminal vesicles. The Planning Target Volume (PTV) was defined by adding a margin of 10 mm to the CTV in all directions. For each patient, 8 treatment plans were calculated. In particular, for each of the 4 categories of risk, 2 treatment plans were calculated by using a cobalt source or 10 MV photons. Treatment plans were calculated using the box technique. Progressive optimization was realized with an iterative procedure by evaluating the three-dimensional dose distribution. Once the final plan was achieved (respecting the PTV constraint: D98 > 95%), distances of the fields edges from a set of reference points were measured.
The purpose of this study is to determine which combination of Nivolumab plus either Rucaparib, Docetaxel, or Enzalutamide is the most effective in treating Castration-resistant Prostate Cancer that has spread
Recurrence free survival The patients will be followed in regular time intervals in accordance with the EAU-Guidelines (2010) and the S-3 Guideline for Prostate cancer of the German Urological Association. Data will be updated once yearly for until death.
This study was undertaken to evaluate bone response in metastatic prostate cancer patients treated with Enzalutamide with or without Zoledronic Acid in combination with luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LHRH) analogue with the use of Whole Boby (WB) DW-MRI.
Prostate cancer affects 1 in 7 men. Half of these men are treated with androgen deprivation therapy (ADT). ADT slows disease progression and prolongs survival, but it also leads to worse quality of life (QOL), fatigue, loss of strength and fitness, osteoporosis, and diabetes. The investigators' recent research has shown that individually supervised exercise, supervised group exercise and home-based exercise are equally good at improving these side effects. Now the investigators are doing a larger trial with multiple centres to see whether supervised group or home-based exercise is clinically better and more economical. A major challenge in such trials is that a significant number of men refuse to be randomized because (a) the participant lives too far from a study centre and cannot come for supervised exercise; or (b) the participant has a strong preference as to which type of exercise program the participant wants to do. Experts have raised concerns that classic randomized trials are too restrictive, selective, and less practical; the study results are less applicable to the real world. Despite its obvious importance, it is not known whether men who refuse to be randomized to an exercise trial but are otherwise willing to participate would benefit similarly to men who are randomized. In this study, we will recruit men who are otherwise eligible for our randomized trial but refuse it for one of the reasons above. We will allow these men to choose either supervised group or home-based exercise, and then compare them to the men who are being randomized to the two treatments in 3 important ways. First, are participants similar in terms of personal characteristics, QOL, and fitness levels? Second, do participants respond similarly to exercise in terms of QOL and physical fitness benefits? Third, do participants actually exercise as much as the randomized men? This work will help the research team understand whether there is a need to change the way exercise trials are done in order to be more relevant and wide-reaching for Canadians with a variety of health conditions.
Men with a history of prostate cancer may be in this study. Subjects recommended for a prostatectomy or oligometastectomy will undergo PET/CT imaging using a novel radiotracer [18F]FTT to evaluate PARP-1 activity in known or suspected sites of primary or metastatic disease. Imaging will be compared with pathology results, including additional research assays when possible.
Improving Cancer Care Together through eOncoNote is a pragmatic randomized trial involving a secure online eConsultation system (referred to as eOncoNote) that will allow primary care providers and cancer specialist providers to communicate about their patients.
