This study is designed to evaluate the efficacy of pamiparib in patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) positive for circulating tumor cells (CTC) with homologous recombination deficiency (CTC-HRD). All patients will receive pamiparib. The purpose of this study is to demonstrate that pamiparib will improve Objective Response Rate (ORR) and Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA) response rate
This study will examine the utility of chitosan for reduction of blood or tissue levels of AGEs in patients with prostate cancer who are clinically stable on androgen-deprivation therapy.
This phase I/II trial studies the side effects and best dose of decitabine and how well it works when given together with enzalutamide in treating patients with castration resistant prostate cancer that has spread to other places in the body. Androgen can cause the growth of prostate cancer cells. Drugs, such as enzalutamide, may lessen the amount of androgen made by the body. Decitabine may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving decitabine and enzalutamide may work better in treating participants with castration resistant prostate cancer.
The research will focus on the possible connection between prostate cancer, and various species of bacteria in the large intestine. In consecutive patients, referred to prostate biopsies, rectal swabs will be taken before the biopsies and before antibiotic treatment. The gut flora will be examined and characterized by a microbiome analysis tool. Negative patients will serve as internal control. The investigators will look for association between prostate cancer of various grades and the presence of specific enteropathogens in the rectal flora of the participants.
This pilot trial studies the genetic analysis of blood and tissue samples from participants with cancer that has spread to other anatomic sites or is no longer responding to treatment. Studying these samples in the laboratory may help doctors to learn how genes affect cancer and how they affect a person?s response to treatment.
This trial studies how well fluciclovine 18F PET/CT imaging works in assessing hormone-naive men with prostate cancer that has spread to the bone. Fluciclovine 18F is a radioactive drug used to measure tumor growth. PET/CT uses x-rays to take pictures inside the body. Comparing results of fluciclovine 18F PET/CT imaging may help doctors predict a patient's response to treatment and help plan the best treatment.
This study is being done to see how safe and effective abemaciclib is when given together with abiraterone acetate plus prednisone in participants with metastatic castration resistant prostate cancer.
The prostate gland is a clinically important male accessory sex gland and vital for its production of semen. Prostate cancer (PCa) is now ranked 3th in annual incidence of male cancer and ranked 5th for cancer-related death in men in Hong Kong which accounts for about 10.9 deaths per 100,000 persons. Its incidence is rising rapidly, almost tripled in the past 10 years. Despite the improvement in awareness of the disease and also increasing use of serum prostate specific antigen, many patients still presented at a late stage that beyond cure by local therapy. Together with those patients suffered recurrent disease after local therapy, many PCa patients required the use of androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) for the control of disease. However, unlike other malignancy, PCa is characterized by its slow progression nature and even for metastatic disease the 5-year survival is upto 20%. Therefore, while ADT can provide effective control of disease, there are increasing evidences suggesting that it can also result in many adverse effects in the patients, and these effects are particular important due to the long survival of these patients. From the western literature, the adverse effects can be quite diverse. Classical side effects after ADT include mood changes, hot flushes, change in cognitive function, loss of libido, erectile dysfunction, osteoporosis and pathological fracture, insulin resistance and increase in risk of cardiovascular related mortality. Unfortunately information regarding the side effects of ADT in Asian population is scanty and inconclusive. Therefore, there is a need to have more information on the adverse effect profiles related to ADT in Asian population. This is a multicentre, prospective, observational, non-interventional study to assess the clinical effectiveness, cardiometabolic and skeletal effects of the various type of ADT - bilateral orchidectomy, GnRH agonist, and GnRH antagonist - in men with advanced prostate cancer over a minimum of 1-year observation period.
Participants will be recruited from the community and attend a screening clinic and undergo the following screening tests: 1. Bi-parametric MRI - reported by a radiologist and CAD-AI system 2. Multiparametric ultrasound - including shearwave elastography 3. A standard-of-care PSA test A systematic +/- targeted biopsy will be performed if any tests are positive, independent of the other tests.
Prostate cancer (PCa) is the second most frequently diagnosed cancer in men worldwide, accounting for 15% of all male cancers. In 2015, there were 220,800 estimated new cases of prostate cancer and 27,540 deaths by PCa, making this disease the second leading cause of cancer-related death for North American men. Men with PCa may develop lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) when prostate tumors invade or compress the prostatic urethra, the bladder or the neurovascular bundles, or when the prostate is enlarged. It has been estimated that over 40% of men with PCa experience moderate or severe LUTS. LUTS can impact profoundly on a man's quality of life (QoL); an effect that increases with increasing LUTS severity. Transurethral resection of prostate (TURP) can offer immediate relief of the obstruction in patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). In contrast, palliative TURP (p-TURP) (the so-called "channel" TURP), is transurethral resection of prostate tissue in a patient with metastatic or locally advanced and/or previously treated PCa to alleviate obstructive voiding symptoms. Al¬though TURP is commonly performed to relieve bladder outlet ob¬struction (BOO) symptoms in patients with BPH, little known about the outcome of palliative transurethral plasma kinetic resection of prostate (p-TUPKRP) in patients with ad-vanced PCa. Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonists as androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) are the standard treatment for many patients with PCa, particularly those with advanced or metastatic disease. The impact of ADT on tumor control and achieving the reduction in prostate specific antigen (PSA) is well established. But there is less information available on the effects on LUTSs in men with PCa. Some short-term studies of ADT with the GnRH antagonist or with ADT in the neoadjuvant setting have demonstrated reductions in LUTSs, measured by the International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS). There are few published data on the longer-term effects of ADT on LUTSs, apart from an earlier interim analysis of data from the current study. In this study, p-TUPKRP combined with ADT will perform for 50 patients with advanced PCa complicated with severe LUTS. As a control, other 50 advanced PCa patients with same symptoms will be treated with ADT only. Some clinical data, including PSA, IPSS, QoL, Urinary flow rate (UFR), ECOG Score, Overall survival (OS), progression-free survival (PFS), will be analyzed. It is expected to explore the efficacy and safety of the combination therapy to advanced PCa with severe LUTS.
