In this study, the researchers will examine the effects of post-mindfulness intervention email and text messages to promote maintenance of intervention effects over time in a uro-oncology sample (clinically localized prostate, kidney, and bladder cancer) of patients and spouses.
In this study, the researchers will examine the effects of a brief eHealth mindfulness intervention, compared to brief relaxing music, to reduce self-reported symptoms of fatigue, anxiety, depression and sleep disturbance in a sample of localized prostate cancer patients during the receipt of radiation therapy.
Radiotherapy is a standard definitive treatment for men with localized prostate cancer. Recent improvements in technology allow high doses of radiation to be delivered to the prostate in less days with lower doses to surrounding healthy tissues, trying to reduce side effects. This study is being proposed to evaluate the use of moderate hypofractionated volumètric radiotherapy in localized prostate cancer patients and assessing treatment -related later adverse events using the CTCAE 4.0
One in 8 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during their lifetime. The majority of men diagnosed with prostate cancer have early stage disease, which can be managed in a variety of ways, ranging from monitoring to interventional treatment. However is it not always clear which treatment option is best. All men with newly diagnosed localised prostate cancer are assigned a disease risk category (low/intermediate/high risk). This is based on clinical findings and prostate biopsy results, but these factors are limited in their ability to distinguish between aggressive and indolent prostate cancers. The current risk grouping can make it difficult to plan appropriate treatment tailored and personalised to the individual patient. There is evidence reporting overtreatment of localised prostate cancer in the UK. However, many patients with aggressive disease are wrongly assigned a low risk categorisation and are recommended surveillance when better suited to more interventional treatment. Myriad Genetics have developed a test, called Prolaris which measures how fast cells in a prostate cancer are dividing to assess its aggressiveness. The Prolaris test is performed on routine prostate biopsy tissue, so patients are not subjected to any additional invasive investigations. In this study, led by Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, we want to find out if the Prolaris® test score helps patients with newly diagnosed prostate cancer and their clinical team make better informed treatment choices that are tailored to the individual patient. We aim to achieve a Prolaris risk score for 100 patients and determine the impact it has on treatment decision making. We will look at how the test fits into routine clinical practice, investigate the clinician and patient views and understanding on the test report and assess the quality of life of patients in the different risk and treatment groups.
The current study aims to examine the hypothesis that combining the focal effects of HIFU with the systemic effects of androgen deprivation therapy might eradicate the prostatic cancer cells by targeting the 'visible' index focus (by HIFU) and the tumour surrounding microenvironment which may contain 'invisible' foci and aberrant PCa related signalling (by androgen deprivation therapy) to enhance oncological outcomes of HIFU hemi-ablation in men with localized PCa, and consequently reducing treatment failures.
This is a study in participants with advanced breast, ovarian, or prostate cancer to investigate the dose, safety, pharmacokinetics, and preliminary efficacy of ipatasertib in combination with rucaparib. The study consists of two parts: a Dose-Escalation Phase (Part 1) in participants with previously treated advanced breast cancer, ovarian cancer, or prostate cancer and a Dose-Expansion Phase (Part 2) in participants with advanced prostate cancer who have had at least one line of prior therapy with second-generation androgen-receptor (AR)-targeted agents (e.g., abiraterone, enzalutamide, apalutamide).
This trial is studying the effects and safety in treating patients from five different centers with local prostate cancer, employing Composite Steep-pulse(High-frequency irreversible electroporation) Treatment Apparatus. This device could cause cell irreversible electroporation, which leading necrosis of tumor cells. It also has the ability to prevent nerve,vessel, urethral and capsule unnecessary injury beside the ablation area. Composite Steep-pulse Treatment Apparatus will be used in patients who pass inclusion/exclusion criteria. Safety, quality of life, and histopathological analysis of prostate speciem will be evaluated in each study patients.
This is a non-randomized multi-center Phase 1b/2a dose escalation and dose expansion study involving 85-97 patients testing DKN-01 as monotherapy or in combination with docetaxel in metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer. Patients need to be biomarker positive (Dickkopf-1 [DKK1]) either in plasma or biopsy. Other biopsies for correlative studies are encouraged but not mandatory. Pharmacokinetic (PK) testing of one pre-treatment blood sample and one post-treatment blood sample will be mandatory on Day 1 of every cycle.
Multi-modality therapy that includes a brachytherapy implant improves outcomes in locally advanced prostate cancer when compared to other radiation-based treatments, but is also associated with more adverse side effects. The goal of the OPTiMAL trial is to reduce these side effects by using advanced imaging and biopsy techniques to locate cancer and deliver precision radiation therapy, while not compromising the unprecedented high cure rates obtained for the brachytherapy arm of the Androgen Suppression Combined with Elective Nodal and Dose Escalated Radiation Therapy (ASCENDE-RT) randomized control trial. Additionally, some applied research in genetics, pathology and medical imaging is included. Novel medical imaging methods, namely, multi-parametric magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), multi-parametric trans-rectal ultrasound (TRUS), prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) are used for re-staging of prostate cancer. This is followed by trans-perineal biopsy to locate cancerous areas of the prostate with greater precision compared to conventional biopsy. Results from imaging are compared to those from biopsy to develop image-based cancer detection methods.
The investigators are conducting this study with men that have prostate cancer and are getting standard of care treatment with the drugs abiraterone acetate and prednisone. The study will follow men with prostate cancer from initiation of participation in the study and for up to 10 years. The reason for the study is that researchers think that there may be a connection between the race and ethnicity of men with prostate cancer and how well the standard treatments work for the participants.
