Rationale: Understanding the mechanisms of enzalutamide as an androgen receptor inhibitor in early prostate cancer could lead to improved patient selection for treatment. Objective: To study the effects of enzalutamide on surgical margin status and AR / DNA interaction and gene expression. Intervention : Men with localized prostate cancer will undergo an additional set of targeted tumor biopsies and will be subsequently treated with 3 months of enzalutamide. The prostatectomy specimen will be additionally sampled, ex vivo.
To report the outcome of hypo-fractionated radiotherapy after radical prostatectomy (RP) for prostate cancer (PCa) using IMRT-SIB. 124 patients with PCa at high risk of relapse after RP or diagnosis of biochemical relapse were included. Patients received 62.5 Gy to the prostate bed (PB) and 45 Gy to pelvis nodes in 25 fractions. Androgen suppressive therapy was prescribed based on NCCN risk categories. Median follow-up was 30 months.
We aim to evaluate the change in optic nerve sheath diameters as a surrogate of intracranial pressure before and after mannitol administration in patients who undergo robot assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy with pneumoperitoneum and Trendelenburg position.
This was a placebo-controlled, double-blind, randomized trial designed with the aim of establishing whether curcumin influenced the duration of treatment interruption and rate of prostatic specific antigen(PSA) progression, compared with placebo among men with prostate cancer receiving intermittent androgen deprivation therapy.
Patients with high risk prostate cancer may benefit from radiotherapy after radical prostatectomy. The investigators postulated that adjuvant androgen deprivation therapy (ADT), radiation dose escalation, and selective pelvic irradiation may improve outcome. A phase II trial was designed to prove that combined-intensified-modulated-adjuvant (CIMA) treatment may improve 5-year biochemical relapse free survival (bRFS) from 75% to 90% in high risk patients. The delivered dose to tumor bed and pelvic nodes was 64.8-70.2 Gy and 45 Gy (57% of patients), respectively, and 69% received ADT.
There are 3 articles that will be written about the experience with HDR-brachytherapy (HDR-BT) in patients with high-risk prostate cancer in Norway as part of a doctorial thesis-project. The project will focus on survival, side-effects and dosimetry variables as the main points of interest.
Monocentric study. Objective : Determination of the repeatability of fluorocholine PET/CT in prostate cancer
This study compared a plant-based, olive oil diet to the diet recommended by the Prostate Cancer Foundation for weight loss and improvement in some laboratory biomarkers.
The main purpose of this study is to determine the accuracy and feasibility (possibility) of Aixplorer® ShearWave Elastography (SWE™) Ultrasound System (made by SuperSonic Imagine, Inc.) for detecting prostate cancer in men undergoing radical prostatectomy.
The objective is to report outcomes,including grade ≥2 overall late rectal and urinary toxicity and biochemical control rates in patients treated with IMRT (70 gy, 74 Gy and 80 Gy)
