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.
This high resolution MRI (hrMRI), along with stand MRI (sMRI) will be obtained at baseline and again in approximately 1 year in patients on prostate cancer active surveillance. Changes in lesion size and ADC values will be assessed on the serial studies. This study evaluates the hypothesis that hrMRI will detect changes that sMRI cannot detect and that these changes will correlate with prostate cancer progression as determined on prostate biopsy.
The prostate cancer is a heterogeneous disease the care of which varies according to the status: localized, locally advanced, or in recurrence after local or metastatic treatment. The precise evaluation of the degree of extension of the disease is thus essential because it is going to allow to adapt at best the therapeutic strategy. Contrary to the abdomino-pelvic scanning and to the osseous scintigraphy which(who) are a member(part) of the balance assessment of standard extension of the prostate cancer, the place of the Tomography with broadcast of Positrons to scan (TEP scan) in Choline in the management of patients affected by prostate cancer is not clearly defined in the national and European recommendations. The current marketing authorization ( AMM) is the research for bones localizations in the prostatic cancers at high risk. It indeed seems that this examination is more successful than the standard radiological examinations (bone scintigraphy and abdomino-pelvic scanning) in the detection of the bone metastatic hurts, with a sensibility of about 100 % and a precision of the order of 93 % according to certain studies. The recent data of the literature suggest a quite particular interest at the patients in situation of biochemical recurrence in terms of localization of (or) tumoral site (s). THE AMM however not specifying if this examination has to be made within the framework of the initial balance sheet of extension, at the time of the biochemical second offense or at the known metastatic stage, there is a big variability of the practices according to the centers. The current indications being very ill-assorted, he is interesting being able to estimate the heterogeneousness of the practices of way multicentre, by leading a study observationally retrospective in region Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur (PACA).
The study will evaluate safety and immunological response to RhoC peptide vaccine in patients with prostate cancer
The purpose of the trial is to investigate new clinical tests that could predict what treatments work best for certain patients with advanced prostate cancer by identifying markers and indicators present in blood and tissue which correlate with treatment response.
The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of various factors such as emotions, stress, stress management techniques (for example relaxation and coping techniques), and health information on quality of life, distress, depression, coping, and physical health in men diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer. We also evaluate the effectiveness of a 10-week group-based internet delivered psychosocial intervention. Primary outcomes are symptom burden (e.g., urinary function, fatigue, pain) and HRQOL (e.g., general, physical & social functioning). Participation in this study includes three face-to-face assessments: baseline (at the beginning of the research study), 6-month follow-up, and 12-month follow-up. The 6- and 12-month follow-up interviews are conducted after the participant has completed the 10-week group intervention. Participants are randomized into either an intervention group (targets stress management skills - relaxation, coping) or a control group (health information and health promotion strategies - benefits of proper nutrition and treatment compliance). Both groups meet for 10 consecutive weeks through an internet video conferencing platform. At the baseline, 6- and 12-month follow-ups, we collect blood and saliva samples. The blood samples go through a three-day process in which we extract and store serum, plasma, and cells for further analysis and gather proliferation data. We use the saliva to measure the cortisol diurnal rhythm.
AIM: The aim of the present study is to investigate if Internet-delivered Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (I-MBCT) can reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety among women treated for breast cancer and men treated for prostate cancer compared to a treatment as usual control group. Furthermore, the effect of I-MBCT on symptoms of stress, insomnia, quality of life, and self-compassion and the potential mediating effect of working alliance and mindfulness will be explored. Finally, the cost-effectiveness of the I-MBCT intervention will be explored. BACKGROUND: Symptoms of depression, anxiety, and stress are prevalent late-effects among cancer patients and -survivors. Mindfulness-based interventions aim at improving affect tolerance and emotion regulation, which could be of particular relevance for cancer patients and survivors, and MBCT has been shown efficacious in treating symptoms of depression, anxiety, and stress among cancer patients and survivors. However, the availability of face-to-face delivered MBCT is limited and hence using the internet to deliver MBCT may be a cost-effective way of increasing the accessibility of the intervention to vulnerable patients with limited resources. METHODS: A total of 155 participants will be recruited from Department of Oncology and Department of Urology at Aarhus University Hospital and randomized to two groups: I-MBCT and a treatment-as-usual wait-list control group. Assessments will be conducted at pre-, midway and post intervention and at a 6- months follow-up.
The purpose of this study is to determine a safe, effective, and tolerable dose of PRX302 for the treatment of low to intermediate risk prostate cancer.
PROREPAIR is a prospective multicenter observational cohort study of unselected patients with metastatic Castration Resistant Prostate Cancer (mCRPC) with unknown germline mutational status at study entry and who are candidates to start 1st line treatment with any approved survival-prolonging agent. The study aims to evaluate the impact of aberrations in DNA-repair genes,(BRCA1, BRCA2, ATM and PALB2 and other genes) on cause-specific survival from the diagnosis of the metastatic castration resistant status and other outcomes.
The investigational protocol describes a small case series designed to compare three imaging modalities for use in visualizing prostate cancer. The three modalities to be tested are: transrectal micro-ultrasound , and conventional resolution transrectal ultrasound (LR-TRUS) (both as implemented on ExactVu, the multi-frequency novel micro-ultrasound system under investigation), and multi-parametric MRI (mpMRI). These modalities will be used for guiding systematic (standard, random, extended sextant) plus image-guided targeted prostate biopsies among men with known cancer and an indication for prostate biopsy. In the case of mpMRI, biopsy will be performed under micro-ultrasound guidance with the radiology report used for targeting.
