NCT ID: NCT03870269 Enrolling by invitation - Prostate Cancer Clinical Trials

Using Virtual Reality (VR) Models for Robotic Prostatectomy - UNC

Start date: February 25, 2019
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

A prospective, randomized, controlled study designed to assess whether digital virtual reality (VR) models, created from existing CT scans and MRIs, provide surgeons with an improved understanding of their patients' anatomy, resulting in more efficient operations (robotic prostatectomy) and improved patient care.

NCT ID: NCT03674996 Enrolling by invitation - Prostate Cancer Clinical Trials

Safety and Security Evaluation of Patients Submitted to Minimally Invasive Radical Prostatectomy

Start date: March 22, 2017
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

This project aims to evaluate safety and security of patients submitted to minimally invasive radical prostatectomy, who received discharge from hospital in the same day of the surgery (Group I), on the 1st post-surgery day (Group II) and in the 2nd post-surgery day (Group III - control). The specific aims are the evaluation of fail index and factors that influence the permanence in the hospital, the satisfaction of patients, the perception of security of patient, the index of post-discharge complications and the costs related to different times of hospitalization. On randomization, those patients in Group I must match the early hospital discharge criteria defined in the study. Thus, they will be forwarded to "Casa de Apoio Madre Paulina", where will receive nursing care until the next day when, in the morning, will be reevaluated in the ambulatory of urology from Barretos Cancer Hospital. The patients of Group II will be evaluated in the ambulatory in the 2nd post-surgery day, before the discharge. In the Group III (control), the patients will be discharged in the 2nd post-surgery day (routine of Barretos Cancer Hospital). All patients who accept to be enrolled in the study will sign the Consent Term previously the surgery. At the 10th post-surgery day, in the follow-up, it will be applied the Patients' Satisfaction with Mental Health Services Scale (SATIS-BR) questionnaire and an inventory. The data will be descriptive considering average, standard deviation, minimum and maximum value and quartile to the quantitative variables and frequency tables to the qualitative variables. In order to determine the groups' homogeneity, some sociodemographic and clinical characteristics will be compared. To the qualitative variables, it will be used chi-squared test (of Fishers exact test), and to the quantitative variables it will be used variance analysis (or Kruskal-Wallis test). The patients' satisfaction will be measured using SATIS-BR, which consists in three numeric domains (ranging from 1 to 5). The comparison of each domain among the groups will be performed using ANOVA. Then, linear regression will be performed in order to analyze the relationship of the patients' characteristics influencing the satisfaction. The rates of fail, clinical security, security perception and post-discharge complications will be compared among the groups using chi-squared test (of Fisher's exact test). There will be considered the significance level of 5%.

HIFU for Focal Ablation of Prostate Tissue: An Observational Study

Start date: June 26, 2018
Study type: Observational

The Sonablate HIFU device was approved by the U.S.FDA for prostate tissue ablation in October, 2015. The purpose of this observational research study is to investigate the localized treatment of prostate cancer using HIFU through clinical data and health-related quality of life (HRQOL) questionnaires.

NCT ID: NCT03532308 Enrolling by invitation - Prostate Cancer Clinical Trials

Nutrition and Prostate Cancer

Start date: November 21, 2018
Phase: Phase 3
Study type: Interventional

The purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy of Fermented Soy vs. placebo in 72 adults with localized prostate cancer prior to radical prostatectomy.

NCT ID: NCT03503643 Enrolling by invitation - Prostate Cancer Clinical Trials

Hemi-Gland Cryoablation for Prostate Cancer at UCLA

Start date: September 15, 2017
Study type: Observational

This is a prospective data collection of men who are electing to undergo prostate hemi-gland cryoablation. The purpose of this observational research study is to investigate the localized treatment of prostate cancer using hemi-gland cryoablation. UCLA patients undergoing hemi-gland cryoablation are a unique cohort compared to prior research because all patients at UCLA have had a pre-treatment multi-parametric MRI and Ultrasound fusion targeted biopsy; they will be followed in a similar fashion. This results in more precise assessment of a target region of cancer for ablation which may, in turn, result in improved clinical outcomes.

NCT ID: NCT03459820 Enrolling by invitation - Prostate Cancer Clinical Trials

Prostate Cancer Patient Management With 18F-DCFPyL PET/CT

Start date: June 22, 2018
Phase: Phase 3
Study type: Interventional

This is a multi-center, single-arm, open-label, phase III trial in patients with biopsy-proven prostate cancer. Patients will receive regular standard of clinical care. The only study-specific procedures will the administration of 18F-DCFPyL followed by a PET/CT scan. Differences in theoretical optimal clinical management based on a review of clinical, biochemical and radiographic subject data before and after 18F-DCFPyL PET/CT imaging by a central panel of experts will be captured at study completion.

NCT ID: NCT03439033 Enrolling by invitation - Prostate Cancer Clinical Trials

Comparison Study of PET/CT or PET/MRI Imaging to Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Alone in Men With Prostate Cancer

Start date: April 3, 2018
Phase: Phase 2
Study type: Interventional

This is a study primarily comparing Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) alone to Positron Emission Tomography (PET)/MRI using an experimental tracer, 68Ga-PSMA-HBED-CC, among men with prostate cancer or prostatic cancer recurrence/metastasis. It is hypothesized that this comparison will demonstrate that PET using the tracer, 68Ga-PSMA-HBED-CC, is more sensitive than MRI alone. Potential subjects who cannot undergo MRI may undergo PET/CT instead.

NCT ID: NCT03423303 Enrolling by invitation - Prostate Cancer Clinical Trials

A Randomized Trial of Early Detection of Clinically Significant Prostate Cancer (ProScreen)

Start date: April 23, 2018
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

A population-based randomised trial of prostate cancer screening will be carried out. A total of approximately 67,000 men aged 50-63 in Helsinki and Tampere are randomised to intervention (screening) or control arm. A reduction in harms of screening in the form of overdiagnosis is sought, while retaining as much as possible of the mortality benefit (reduction in prostate cancer mortality). Novel methods that have been shown to increase specificity for clinically relevant prostate cancer but never tested in a randomised setting will be employed in screening and diagnostics. The main end-point is prostate cancer mortality at 10 and 15 years of follow-up.

NCT ID: NCT03388346 Enrolling by invitation - Prostate Cancer Clinical Trials

68Ga PSMA in Preprostatectomy Patients

Start date: February 16, 2018
Phase: Phase 2/Phase 3
Study type: Interventional

This study investigates if a new drug (PSMA) makes prostate cancer easier to identify in positron-emission tomography (PET) imaging. If this works, prostate cancer treatments can be prescribed that match the location of the disease. PSMA is radiolabeled with Gallium-68 (Ga-68). This means a participant receives a small dose of radiation from the drug - less than the annual radiation limit for a medical worker. To test this new drug, participants will receive an injection of Ga-68 PSMA and then have a PET scan. This PET scan, and the reported results, will be entered into the medical record and shared with the treating oncologists.

NCT ID: NCT03373006 Enrolling by invitation - Prostate Cancer Clinical Trials

A Phase II Study to Evaluate Axumin PET/CT for Risk Stratification for Prostate Cancer

Start date: February 27, 2018
Phase: Phase 2
Study type: Interventional

To investigate the utility of fluciclovine F 18 for evaluation for metastatic disease in men undergoing laser focal therapy of prostate cancer and the impact on inclusion for a focal therapy cohort.
