Post implant dosimetry is an essential part of quality assurance after permanent seed prostate brachytherapy. CT imaging is the standard of assessment but due to contouring uncertainties, MR-CT fusion is preferred. This is not always available due to financial restrictions. This study explores the possibility of post implant US-CT fusion to improve contouring accuracy and potentially replace the use of MR-CT fusion.
The emil project aims to design, develop, implement and evaluate a digital service to support a healthy lifestyle among men with prostate cancer. In this second study, men with a history of prostate cancer are invited to participate in the scoping and design of a digital platform, through three iterations of workshops and individual interviews, which includes prototyping and other ideation processes. Finally, the men with a history of prostate cancer will be involved in the usability testing of the design, to ensure a platform fit for use by the intended users.
Prostate cancer is the most frequently occurring male cancer in Belgium. Patients who have been treated for prostate cancer, i.e. by surgery and/or radiotherapy, in a substantial degree suffer from a tumor recurrence, often diagnosed by an increase in serum tumor marker Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) within the first few years. In these patients with evidence of a tumor recurrence after primary treatment, it is important to most exactly define the location(s) of tumor, to guide appropriate therapy by surgery, radiotherapy and/or hormonotherapy. In so-called oligo-metastatic disease targeted therapy may still be curative and prevent the disease from spreading to distant locations. Therefore it is of paramount importance to have an accurate tool of medical imaging to localize all possible locations to be treated.
A not randomized clinical survey was done in 25 pacients with histological diagnosis confirmed of a prostatic adenocarcinoma and hardy in hormonotherapy at the Calixto Garcia Hospital in Habana (2016-2018). Researches had as identifying goal the efecctiveness study of Oncoxin-Viusid® nutritional supplement as a support to convencional treatment. The patient were treated with habitual doses of Docetacel and 75 mg per day of supplement during and fiften day after the quimiotherapy. The rest of numbers and severety of adverse reactions were determined as well as its influences on life quality when this co-therapy is performed, the evaluation of progresion spare survival and the porcentage of recurrences.
The purpose of the study is to compare the results of three standard of care surgical methods [stapling versus selective suture ligation (cut, then sew) versus single suture ligation (sew, then cut) of the dorsal venous complex (DVC)] during robotic prostate surgery to see which is better for the patient's recovery.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate High-dose rate (HDR) brachytherapy (1 vs 2 fractions on single implant) as monotherapy for the treatment of low risk and intermediate risk prostate cancer
The purpose of this study is to evaluate a new counseling tool for patients deciding whether or not to undergo prostate cancer screening. This screening decision aid is a computer program that provides individual patients estimates of their risks of prostate cancer diagnosis, prostate cancer related death, or death from any cause. The researchers are evaluating whether or not patients find this screening decision aid helpful. As part of this study, participants will be asked for their response on questionnaires. If patients find the screening decision aid helpful, the researchers will make it available at other clinic locations.
Background: ETBX-011, ETBX-061, and ETBX-051 are cancer vaccines. Their goal is to teach the immune system to target and kill cancer cells. The vaccines target 3 proteins found in many types of cancer. Researchers think targeting all 3 proteins in unison will have the best results. Objective: To test the safety of combining ETBX-011, ETBX-061, and ETBX-051 and their effects on the immune system. Eligibility: People ages 18 and older with advanced cancer that has not responded to standard therapies Design: Participants will be screened with: Medical history Physical exam Blood, urine, and heart tests Scan: They will lie in a machine that takes pictures of the body. Participants will receive the 3 vaccines through 3 shots under the skin every 3 weeks for 3 doses, then every 8 weeks for up to 1 year. They will have blood and urine tests at each vaccine visit. They will have scans and other measurements of their tumor after 9 weeks and then at their vaccine visits every 8 weeks. Participants will keep a diary of symptoms at the injection site. Participants will have a visit 90 days after their final treatment. This will include a physical exam and blood and urine tests. If they have any ongoing side effects, they will be followed until these end or are not changing. After this visit, they will be called every 3 months for the first year, every 6 months for the next 2 years, then every 12 months for another 2 years to see how they are doing. Participants will have the option to enroll in a long-term follow-up study.
Since its introduction, robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) have become the standard surgical approach for the treatment of prostate cancer in the United States and then in Europe. Continuous refinements of surgical technique has been described in order to maximise outcomes while minimizing morbidities. The management of DVC is a crucial steps during RARP. It could be done prior or after its transection thanks to haemostatic effects of the pneumoperitoneum. This topic has been already investigated by some authors. However, no high quality evidence is available to opt in favour of either of the two approaches. Findings about estimated blood loss, positive surgical margins and urinary recovery differ among these studies and only one is a randomized controlled trial in a laparoscopic setting with a limited number of patients. Therefore, our objective was to evaluate in a prospective randomised setting whether a delayed ligation of the dorsal vascular complex impacted on perioperative, functional and oncological outcomes as compared to preventive ligation during robot-assisted radical prostatectomy.
The purpose of this study is to see if eating vitamin D, omega 3 and turmeric (curcumin) slows the growth of prostate cancer in men on active surveillance.
