The purpose of the proposed research is to test and validate an artificial intelligence-based Risk Map decision-support system (DSS) for prostate cancer Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) interpretation and identification of clinically significant tumor site(s).
The goal of this study is to learn if a social support lifestyle intervention (called Watchful Living) can help African American prostate cancer patients and their partners improve their quality of life, physical activity, diet, and inflammation. This is an investigational study. Up to 80 participants (40 patients and their partners) will be enrolled in this part of the study. All will take part at MD Anderson.
The purpose of this study is to compare any good and bad effects of using radium-223 along with docetaxel chemotherapy treatment versus using docetaxel alone.
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.
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in France (54,000 cases in 2011). About 20,000 radical prostatectomies (PR) per year are performed. Despite the progress of PR over the past 20 years, the rate of erectile dysfunction post PR varies between 30 and 90% and only 16% of operated men recover their pre-treatment erections. There is currently no validated post-prostatectomy rehabilitation protocol. The associations of patients, including the National Association of Prostate Cancer Patients have a very strong demand for treatment of sexual problems after treatment.
This is a prospective, open-label, randomized, cross-over, pilot study of reprogramming therapy in patients with recurrent PCa based on rising PSA only. The primary objectives are to compare the disease progression-free rate at the end of 12 weeks between 5-AZA+ATRA and no therapy and to assess safety of the 5-AZA and ATRA combination. All study enrollees will receive Lupron. After one month, they will be assigned in a 1:1 randomization to either the `5-AZA+ATRA' group or the `no therapy' group. Patients in the `5-AZA + ATRA' group will receive treatment on a 28-day cycle, in the absence of prohibitive toxicities, for 3 cycles. Patients will initially be observed for 3 cycles under either no therapy or combination therapy, before crossing over to receive the opposite treatment for another 3 cycles in the absence of prohibitive toxicities. After the treatment period, all patients will be followed for a total of 24 months from the start of the study or until the events leading to discontinuation are observed.
A proportion of prostate cancer (PCa) patients develop relapse following curative local treatment. Regional nodal recurrence is an emerging clinical situation since the introduction of new molecular imaging methods in the restaging of recurrent prostate cancer. More specifically, a subgroup of these patients is being diagnosed with a recurrence confined to the regional lymph nodes and limited in number (oligorecurrence) using choline or PSMA PET-CT. As there are no specific treatment recommendations for these type of patients, different treatment approaches are currently used, mostly focusing on local ablative treatments using radiotherapy or surgery. These treatments are coined metastasisdirected therapy (MDT). MDT in combination with or without temporary ADT could delay the subsequent risk of progression, and even cure limited regional nodal recurrences. Consequently, lifelong palliative ADT, with its toxicity and excess in non-cancer mortality might be postponed. The proposed trial randomizes patients with oligorecurrent nodal prostate cancer following primary PCa treatment to either metastasis-directed therapy (MDT) (salvage lymph node dissection, sLND or stereotactic body radiotherapy, SBRT) or MDT plus whole pelvis radiotherapy (WPRT: 45 Gy in 25 fractions).
This study is a large, prospective, pragmatic, controlled comparison of patient-centric outcomes [quality of life (QOL), toxicity, and disease control] between parallel cohorts of men with prostate cancer treated simultaneously at proton therapy facilities and at geographically similar conventional (photon-based) radiation facilities using intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) techniques.
ORIOLES is a pre-post study designed to improve quality of opioid prescribing and use after discharge for patients undergoing urologic surgery. The study will initially focus on a pre-defined cohort of patients undergoing radical prostatectomy. After the predefined study period and results are obtained, the intervention may be applied to all urologic surgeries based on the degree of improvement demonstrated by the study.
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of anesthetic method on the optic nerve sheath diameter in patients undergoing robot-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy.
