This study investigates neoadjuvant TAK-700 orteronel for 6 months prior to prostatectomy. The three year biochemical free survival is the primary endpoint. There are a number of 2nd endpoints such as pathological complete response rate, the need for adjuvant radiation therapy, use of post operative radiotherapy an the rate of positive margins at surgery. Translational endpoints include measuring tumoural and plasma testosterone as well as other androgens. Patients with untreated high risk and intermediate risk operable prostate cancer will be treated with TAK-700 (plus LHRH agonist) for 24 weeks prior to planned prostatectomy.
This study will seek to determine if the downstream effects of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) inhibition suggested by preclinical systems occur in human prostate cancer. To answer this question, men who have chosen prostatectomy will be randomly assigned to preoperative treatment with celecoxib or placebo for four weeks. Carefully collected tumor, premalignant, and benign prostate tissue will then be examined for apoptosis, androgen receptor and prostaglandin E2 levels. Tumor COX-2 expression will be correlated with observed treatment effects. The data generated by this study will serve as a foundation for the development of COX-2 targeted therapies for prostate cancer, will provide preliminary evidence for larger scale clinical trials aimed at treatment and prevention of prostate cancer, and will validate current preclinical models used to study COX-2 in prostate cancer.
This is a correlative study to characterize serum metabolites associated with bone deposition, growth and turnover in patients with newly diagnosed metastatic CRPC who are not currently receiving bone targeting agents.
To assess activity of abiraterone-re-challenge in patients with advanced prostate cancer and prior response to abiraterone.
The researchers hope to learn if yoga complementary therapy would improve health-related quality of life, recovery of urinary continence and erectile function in patients who underwent prostate cancer surgery (i.e. radical prostatectomy). We hypothesized that in patients undergoing radical prostatectomy, preoperative and postoperative Yoga complementary therapy would improve health- related quality of life (HRQOL), recovery of urinary continence and erectile function. This two-arm, randomized controlled pilot study will compare Yoga intervention to usual care group. The aim is to evaluate the efficacy of Yoga complementary therapy on HRQOL in patients who underwent radical prostatectomy (RP). Yoga therapy will be given to the intervention group three times in a week for 6 weeks prior to surgery and then initiated 3 weeks after the surgery for another 6 weeks. The yoga exercise will be tailored to the participant's comfort level. As an exploratory analysis, we will evaluate pro-inflammatory and immunological markers.
Phase II non-inferiority randomized trial of annual systematic biopsies versus mpMRI and targeted biopsies for men with low risk prostate cancer on active surveillance with any volume Gleason's Score 6, but no prior MRI imaging of the prostate.
This is a study for men who have locally-advanced prostate cancer and are eligible to undergo prostatectomy. Standard treatment is prostatectomy alone, but there is a chance that cancer may spread to other organs in the future, even after the prostate is removed. If this were to occur, standard treatment would be androgen deprivation therapy (ADT; hormone therapy that blocks testosterone) plus chemotherapy. Clinical trials suggest that neoadjuvant treatment (treatment given before primary therapy) may prevent a recurrence. The purpose of this research study is to assess the safety and benefit of ADT plus chemotherapy given before prostate removal.
The aim of this study is to investigate safety and diagnostic performance of the 68Ga labeled PET tracer [68Ga]RM2 for detection and localization of primary prostate cancer confirmed by histopathology of the prostate as a standard of truth. This is an open-label, multi center PET/CT (positron emission tomography/computed tomography) non-randomized study. The study comprises 2 parts with an interim analysis after Part 1. In Part 1 a total of 30 subjects with biopsy-proven primary prostate cancer will be enrolled. Three strata of patients for the first part will be enrolled based on their pretreatment recurrence risk assessment according to the NCCN guidelines: 10 patients with low, 10 patients with intermediate and 10 patients with high pretreatment risk of recurrence.
This study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of intravenous (IV) pertuzumab in participants with hormone-refractory prostate cancer who have had no previous chemotherapy. Participants will be enrolled in two stages, the first (Cohort A) at a lower 420-mg dose and the second (Cohort B) at a higher 1050-mg dose based upon observations in Cohort A. Up to 50 participants may enter either cohort, for a total enrollment between 46 and 73 participants across 9 study centers.
This is a prospective open registry to measure the impact on first-line therapy of genomic testing of biopsy tissue from recently diagnosed treatment-naïve patients with early stage localized prostate cancer. Physicians will complete a series of questionnaires. Biopsy tissue will be tested using the Prolaris® genomic test and a relative cancer aggressiveness score will be shared with the physician and the patient.
