This study is a clinical trial to determine whether a 12-week group therapy intervention for patients undergoing Active Surveillance for Prostate Cancer can relieve disease-related anxiety and improve quality of life and delay elective treatment of prostate cancer. The goal of the study is to further our understanding of anxiety in men who have been diagnosed with prostate cancer and are undergoing Active Surveillance. Men who have elected Active Surveillance for their management of prostate cancer are eligible to participate in this study. After signing informed consent, all participants will complete two brief questionnaires (The Memorial Anxiety Scale for Prostate Cancer [MAX-PC] and the General Anxiety and Depression Scale 7 [GAD-7] to measure their anxiety levels. If the participant scores above a certain number, they will be asked to participate in the study. Patients will be randomly assigned to either a control group, who will receive no treatment, but continue to follow up with their urologist to manage their prostate cancer as usual, or the treatment group. The treatment group will receive 12 one-hour group therapy sessions that will take place once a week for 12 weeks with a licensed psychologist free of charge. They will be instructed to follow up with their urologist as previously determined for their prostate cancer management. Patients in both groups will be monitored for anxiety completing three questionnaires, the MAX-PC and GAD-7 which they previously completed, and the Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy - Prostate (FACT-P) during the 4th and 12th weeks of therapy. If patients require further therapy beyond the group treatment sessions, the investigators may refer them to a psychologist or psychiatrist for further treatment.
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.
Patients with low-risk or favorable intermediate-risk prostate cancer as defined by 1.2016 NCCN criteria will be eligible to participate on this study.
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.
The goal of this study is to measure the effect of radiation therapy on the activity levels of patients. This will be achieved by tracking their activity levels during a treatment course of radiation therapy.
To assess activity of abiraterone-re-challenge in patients with advanced prostate cancer and prior response to abiraterone.
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.
