NCT ID: NCT03921996 Not yet recruiting - Prostate Cancer Clinical Trials

Extended Pelvic Lymph Node Dissection vs. no Pelvic Lymph Node Dissection at Radical Prostatectomy for intermediate-and High-risk Prostate Cancer

Start date: July 1, 2019
Phase: Phase 3
Study type: Interventional

For patients with intermediate-risk prostate cancer plus a predicted risk of >5% for positive lymph nodes and with high-risk prostate cancer, international guidelines recommend ePLND along with the RP. Besides an improved accuracy in staging, the therapeutic role of ePLND remains controversial. We hypothesize that ePLND prolongs time to biochemical recurrence (BCR) and prostate cancer-specific survival (PCSS) in intermediate- and high-risk PCa patients.

NCT ID: NCT03919214 Not yet recruiting - Hypertension Clinical Trials

Hypertension Management in Cancer Patients

Start date: April 30, 2019
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The investigators propose to leverage new technology using the Qardio app for iPhone and Android devices to automatically upload blood pressures, using a well-validated blue tooth blood pressure monitor (QardioArm), directly into the Duke electronic health record system (EPIC). Further, the investigators propose to develop an automated EHR (electronic health record) messaging system utilizing the home blood pressures that will be sent to the participant's PCP, with copies to the participant and the primary oncologist. This is a 12-week prospective non-randomized implementation study. 40 patients who are 18-74 years old who fall under the following criteria will be screened: 10 women with Stage 1-III breast cancer who are receiving either an anthracycleine of antiHER2 therapy, 10 men with prostate cancer on ADT, 10 individuals with CLL on ibrutinib therapy, and 10 individuals who are hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) survivors. In Phase 1 (Weeks 1-4) of the study, participants will self-monitor their blood pressure using the QardioArm wireless upper arm blood pressure monitor 3 times per week. In Phase 2 (Weeks 5-12), the investigators will implement the auto-messaging system triggered by an abnormal weekly average systolic or diastolic blood pressure. The investigators will adapt the conceptual framework of Muldoon and colleagues whereby home blood pressure monitoring is combined with office blood pressures to optimize data for the primary care provider's clinical decision making. {Participants will be asked to complete a paper survey, upon enrollment, that will include life chaos and medication adherence questions. There will also be an end-of-study feedback survey (usability and acceptability questions through REDCap) for both the participants and their primary care providers. This is an implementation study with a descriptive analysis. The data generated from the study will be used in future studies, including testing of different interventions aimed at optimizing blood pressure control among patients on active cancer therapy. This study presents no greater than minimal risk to the subjects and adverse events are not anticipated.

NCT ID: NCT03914391 Recruiting - Prostate Cancer Clinical Trials

To Identify Potential New Urine Markers for the Screening of Prostate Cancer

Start date: January 16, 2019
Study type: Observational

Prostate gland is a clinically important male sexual organ and its main function is for the production of semen. Globally, it is the second most common cancer in men globally and is also the fifth cancer cause for death in male. Despite the improvement in the understanding of prostate cancer, the current usage of serum prostate specific antigen (PSA) as a diagnostic marker is still not ideal. Many patients with elevated PSA and then subjected to prostate biopsy were found to have no prostate cancer. Therefore, there is a need to discover new biological markers to improve the current situation in diagnosis and also management of prostate cancer. From the earlier small-scale studies, urinary spermine levels have been shown to correlate well with prostate cancer diagnosis and cancer aggressiveness. Due to its nature, it could provide a more convenient and non-invasive method for detecting prostate cancer. The purpose of this study was to collect urine samples to study the role of potential new urine diagnostic markers (including Spermine and others) for prostate cancer diagnosis.

NCT ID: NCT03912883 Active, not recruiting - Prostate Cancer Clinical Trials

Prognostic Factors in Prostate Cancer for Patients Treated by Watchful Waiting

Start date: October 12, 1999
Study type: Observational

The Trans-Atlantic Prostate Group (TAPG) was established to examine the hypothesis that through a detailed retrospective analysis of outcome in a group of men with clinically localised prostate cancer at diagnosis, variables such as biological, pathological and clinical markers, could be identified that might accurately predict the prognosis of clinically localised prostate cancer. In 1999, the TAPG group initiated the "Prognostic Factors in Prostate Cancer for Patients Treated by Watchful Waiting" study, referred to as the TAPG study. It is a retrospective population-based tissue sample study in men diagnosed with localised prostate cancer 1990-2006, inclusively. Initially the cohort comprised men diagnosed with prostate cancer with transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) and needle biopsies 1990-1996, but was expanded from 2005 to include men diagnosed with prostate cancer 1990 - 2006. Data was collected from six regional cancer registries and eligibility was confirmed via hospital sites, which sent the relevant tissue samples to the TAPG Central Coordinating Office (CCO). Selection of eligible patients for the study completed in 2010. Since this year the TAPG CCO has been collecting cancer registration and mortality updates on the cohort members from regional cancer registries.

NCT ID: NCT03911999 Recruiting - Prostate Cancer Clinical Trials

To Investigate the Diagnostic Accuracy of Exosomal microRNA in Predicting the Aggressiveness of Prostate Cancer in Chinese Patients

Start date: May 3, 2018
Study type: Observational

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. Fortunately, with the improvement in awareness of the disease and also increasing use of serum prostate specific antigen for early case identification, many patients are diagnosed at an earlier stage. However, unlike other malignancy, PCa is characterized by its slow progression nature. Therefore, some patients with low grade low volume disease might never suffered from PCa related complications or mortality. As a result, recent year, there is an increase use a more conservative approach, active surveillance (AS), for management of early prostate cancer. The principle of AS is selecting patients with low risk of disease and offered them regular monitoring, instead of radical local therapy, unless patient's cancer was noticed to progressing. By using this approach, patients might avoid possible complications related to treatment. Currently, people could use some clinical parameters, imaging and repeated prostate biopsy to assess and monitor the aggressiveness/ progression of PCa. However, these parameters suffered from defects, such as low correlation to the final PCa pathology or not readily repeatable for patients. Therefore, there is a need to identify more easy, safe and repeatable monitoring of the aggressiveness of prostate cancer. Exosome is genetic materials secreted by cells and could be measured in various body fluid. There are some studies suggested it is a potential marker for PCa diagnosis and monitoring. The aim of this study is to investigate the relationship of urinary exosome and the aggressiveness of prostate cancer.

[18F]PSMA-11 PET/CT Phase 3 Clinical Study

Start date: April 2019
Phase: Phase 3
Study type: Interventional

Prostate cancer is the most frequently occurring male cancer in Belgium. After treatment with surgery and/or radiotherapy, almost half of the patients suffer from a tumor recurrence, often diagnosed by an increase in serum tumor marker Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) within the first few years after primary treatment. However, for salvage therapy to be successful, precise localization of metastases is necessary to determine the most appropriate treatment. 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.

NCT ID: NCT03903835 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Metastatic Castration-Resistant Prostatic Cancer

ProBio: A Biomarker Driven Study in Patients With Metastatic Castrate Resistant Prostate Cancer

Start date: February 1, 2019
Phase: Phase 3
Study type: Interventional

Metastatic castrate resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) is an advanced form of prostate cancer that affects 2500 - 3000 Swedish men every year. The last years, new drugs have been approved for treatment of mCRPC. Although the drugs are beneficial for many patients they carry three serious disadvantages: treatment costs are high, the response rates are low and there are no predictive treatment markers available in clinical care today. There are promising research that linked changes in the tumor's genome with better or worse response to drug treatment.The purpose of the ProBio study is to investigate whether profiling of the tumor's genome can be used to select a treatment that is highly likely to produce good effect. In order to investigate the tumor cells' genome we will use a biomarker in blood, so-called circulating tumor DNA. Our hypothesis is that one can significantly prolong progression-free survival compared to current clinical practice by measuring free circulating tumor DNA in plasma and adapting the treatment accordingly. In this way, treatment can be tailored, which leads to benefits for both patient and health care. The hypothesis will be tested in a large clinical study with 750 patients diagnosed with CRPC. Recruitment to the clinical treatment study will take place at a number of Swedish hospitals.

NCT ID: NCT03902951 Not yet recruiting - Clinical trials for Recurrent Prostate Carcinoma

Antiandrogen Therapy and SBRT in Treating Patients With Recurrent, Metastatic Prostate Cancer

Start date: May 1, 2019
Phase: Phase 2
Study type: Interventional

This phase II trial studies how well antiandrogen therapy (leuprolide, apalutamide, and abiraterone acetate) and stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) works in treating patients with prostate cancer that has come back and has spread to other parts of the body. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as leuprolide, apalutamide, and abiraterone acetate, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. SBRT uses special equipment to position a patient and deliver radiation to tumors with high precision. This method can kill tumor cells with fewer doses over a shorter period and cause less damage to normal tissue. Giving antiandrogen therapy and SBRT may work better in treating patients with prostate cancer.

NCT ID: NCT03899987 Not yet recruiting - Clinical trials for Prostate Adenocarcinoma

Aspirin and Rintatolimod With or Without Interferon-alpha 2b in Treating Patients With Prostate Cancer Before Surgery

Start date: May 1, 2019
Phase: Phase 2
Study type: Interventional

This phase II trial studies how well aspirin and rintatolimod with or without interferon-alpha 2b work in treating patients with prostate cancer before surgery. Aspirin may help to keep the prostate cancer from coming back. Rintatolimod may stimulate the immune system and interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Interferon-alpha 2b may improve the body?s natural response to infections and may slow tumor growth. It is not yet known how well rintatolimod, aspirin, and interferon-alpha 2b work in treating patients with prostate cancer undergoing surgery.
