NCT ID: NCT03948204 Enrolling by invitation - Prostate Cancer Clinical Trials

Quality of Life and Shared Decision Making in Prostate Cancer

Start date: January 1, 2017
Phase:
Study type: Observational

"Life after prostate cancer" is a prospective, population-based, case-control study where all men diagnosed with Prostate cancer (PCa) from 01.01.2017 regardless of age and disease stage are invited to a survey by questionnaire on their health. Men with no history of PCa are identified through the National Registry, matched on age and region of residence, and invited to the survey as controls. Patients and controls who have signed up for an official digital mailbox are invited electronically. Those who do not have a digital mailbox are invited by regular mail. All participants have given their informed consent for all linkages planned in this study. Due to electronic reporting of histological reports to the Norwegian Prostate Cancer Registry, patients are invited to the survey shortly after diagnosis. More than 6 400 patients have submitted questionnaires per April 2019.

Upregulation of PSMA Receptors After Androgen Deprivation Therapy on PSMA PET/CT Imaging in Prostate Cancer

Start date: February 2, 2018
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Prostate specific membrane antigen (PSMA) is a unique membrane bound glycoprotein, which is overexpressed on prostate cancer cells and is well-characterized as an imaging biomarker of prostate cancer. Studies have shown that PSMA PET/CT can detect prostate cancer lesions with excellent contrast and a high detection rate even when the level of prostate specific antigen is low. PSMA imaging is considered the gold standard in imaging of biochemical recurrence, with detection rate of recurrence in 79.5% of patients, in the largest series of 1007 patients. Despite these excellent results, there remains approximately 20% of patients in whom the site of biochemical recurrence cannot be identified and further research is needed into improving detection rates. Androgen deprivation therapy (ADT), represents the standard of care treatment for most men with a rising serum PSA and no evidence of disseminated disease on imaging modalities. There has been some preliminary data that imaging patients early after initiation of ADT therapy may increase detection rates of recurrence sites. The objective of this study is to evaluate if prostate cancer patients with biochemical recurrence and negative PSMA PET/CT can demonstrate in-vivo upregulation of PSMA receptors in an attempt to improve detection rates of recurrent prostate cancer. Patients who are started on ADT when clinically indicated, will have repeat PSMA PET/CT at 4 weeks following initiation of ADT therapy.

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.

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%.

Hemi-Gland Cryoablation for Prostate Cancer at UCLA

Start date: September 15, 2017
Phase:
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.

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.

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.

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

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.
