Researchers leading this study hope to learn about the safety of combining the study drug relugolix with another study drug called itraconazole or ritonavir in prostate cancer. This study is for individuals who have advanced prostate cancer and plans to have medical castration (the use of medications or chemicals to lower hormone production in the testicles). Your participation in this research will last up to 1 month. The purpose of this research is to gather information on the safety and effectiveness of relugolix in combination with ritonavir or itraconazole. The goal of this research is to find out if combining two medications (relugolix and itraconazole or relugolix and ritonavir) could possibly lead to using less relugolix, which is an expensive drug.
The purpose of this study is to assess the feasibility of conducting a larger randomized controlled trial to assess the efficacy of perioperative propranolol capsules compared with placebo capsules in decreasing recurrence of prostate cancer after robotic assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy (RALP) in participants with intermediate to high-risk for prostate cancer recurrence.
All men following Radical Prostatectomy (RP) at NYU Langone Health undergo routine prostate specific antigen (PSA) testing in order to identify disease recurrence. By consensus, a BCR following RP occurs once the PSA > 0.2 ng/ml/ Biochemical recurrence often develops years prior to clinical evidence of disease recurrence. Early identification of the site(s) of disease recurrence enables early salvage intervention. Men will be eligible for the study at the point in time their post-prostatectomy PSA level first becomes >0.2 ng/ml. Only those patients with rhPSMA-7.3 (18F) identifiable disease (local, nodal or systemic) will be offered salvage intervention per standard of care. All patients with a negative initial rhPSMA-7.3 (18F) scan will undergo a second scan when the PSA is > 0,5 ng/ml or one year after the initial PET study. The salvage interventions will be at the discretion of the investigator. The study will compare the diagnostic yield of the first and second rhPSMA-7.3 (18F) studies.
Purpose: This study will take prostate specific membrane antigen (PSMA) as the targeting of radionuclide labeled molecular probe to explore the diagnostic efficacy of 99mTc-P137 radioactive probe in prostate cancer. Combining with SPECT/CT to optimize the imaging, image analysis and clinical diagnosis process of 99mTc-P137 probe, the aim of the study is to provide new methods and new means for the early detection, early diagnosis, accurate tumor staging, treatment decision and prognosis judgment of malignant tumor, and will provide scientific and clinical basis for the precise diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer. Research objectives: To investigate the clinical translational application value of 99mTc-P137 molecular probe in accurate detection of prostate cancer lesions. Research design: A prospective study design will be used in this study. Patients meeting the inclusion criteria of this study will be analyzed with 99mTc-P137 SPECT/CT imaging. To evaluate the diagnostic and prognostic value of 99mTc-P137 nuclear medicine imaging in accurate detection of prostate cancer lesions, clinical surgical specimens and pathological diagnosis will be used as the gold standard. Study the population Indications: For patients with suspected prostate cancer who plan to undergo surgical resection or puncture biopsy after various examinations, the final pathological results can be obtained.
Current literature on prehabilitation is broad and heterogenous. Ploussard et al initiated a multimodal one-day prehabilitation program in patients before robotic radical prostatectomy involving urology nurses, anaesthetic nurses, oncology nurse specialists, anesthesiologists, dieticians, physiotherapists etc, and observed significant improvement in terms of reduction in length of stay, blood loss, and operative time, and an increase in the proportion of ambulant surgery. Santa Mina et al observed that patients following a home-based moderate-intensity exercise prehabilitation program prior to radical prostatectomy were more fit i.e have a greater score on the 6 minutes' walk test, four weeks postoperatively compared to a control group. Regrettably, this study couldn't demonstrate a difference in length of stay or complication rate. To date, evidence for efficacy of prehabilitation in gynaecological cancer patients is limited. Several reviews and a meta-analysis indicate that the level of evidence suggesting that prehabilitation may improve postoperative outcomes is low. Moreover, there is a wide variability in applied preoperative prehabilitation programs i.e, with a uni- or multimodal approach, home-based or supervised, differences in intensity and a variety of outcomes. Therefore, there is a need for randomized controlled trials with low risk of bias and clearly defined outcome parameters to clarify the potential benefit of prehabilitation for patients Hence, the primary goal of this randomized pilot study is to determine the feasibility of the implementation of a multimodal prehabilitation program in patients undergoing robotic oncologic urological or gynaecological surgery in a Belgian tertiary center in terms of protocol adherence and recruitment rate.
Steep trendelenburg posture or pneumoperitoneum for surgery causes ventilation problems during surgery, so finding a way to overcome is a challenging task for anesthesiologists. In this study, for patients undergoing robot assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy under general anesthesia, anesthesia is going to perform by applying conventional positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP 5cmH2O) or individually determined positive end-expiratory pressure values for each patient using electrical impedance tomography. We plan to compare intraoperative ventilation through arterial blood gas analysis to find out the way to improve intraoperative ventilation.
This single arm trial will investigate a novel way to plan and deliver SABR for prostate cancer. Prostate-directed SABR will be high-dose SABR (40 Gy in 5 fractions) with central sparing of the urethra and peripheral sparing of the rectum and pudendal arteries (SUPR-SABR). This study tests the hypothesis that genitourinary (GU) and gastrointestinal (GI) toxicity rates following SUPR-SABR are comparable to (or possibly lower than) historical GU and GI toxicity rates following standard SABR (stSABR) with 36.25 Gy in the treatment of low- and intermediate-risk prostate cancer.
This is a single center, open-label phase 1 study to assess the safety and feasibility of PSMA-specific CAR modified autologous T cells (CART-PSMA cells) in patients with advanced prostate cancer.
The purpose of the study is to determine if a radiopaque hydrogel rectal spacer, SpaceOAR Vue®, can be used in place of fiducial markers when aligning patients for radiotherapy. The investigator hypothesizes that the alignment of the patient based on the rectal spacer will be similar to the alignment of the patient with fiducial markers.
This study will use different types of medical imaging to assess how lesions from advanced prostate cancer become resistant to second-generation AR-targeted therapy, and how the different types of imaging compare in that assessment. Participants in this study have advanced prostate cancer and are either scheduled to start a second-generation androgen receptor (AR) targeted therapy (such as enzalutamide, abiraterone, or apalutamide) or are already being treated with one. Participants can expect to be in the study for at least 9 months, and up to 2 years.
