Due to the rapid growth, tumour demand for oxygen is often higher than what can be delivered by the newly forming blood vessels. Tumour adaption to this imbalanced oxygen supply and demand (hypoxia) is associated with poor prognosis and genetic changes (genomic instability) that allow it to become more resistant to chemo- and radiotherapy. Patients with hypoxic tumours therefore die earlier. Limited information is available on hypoxia in newly diagnosed prostate cancer, especially to what degree hypoxia in the prostate tumour is associated with the presence of metastases to bones. The Hyprogen trial is a prospective, non-randomised, exploratory biopsy and imaging biomarker study recruiting 60 patients with prostate cancer to better establish the role of hypoxia in prostate cancer cells evolution and early metastatic spread.
This study is set up as a phase I prospective, single center, device interventional pilot study carried in office setting under local anesthesia. It will assess the tolerance and safety of target fusion ablation of prostate cancer tumors using Laser Induced Thermal Therapy (TFA-LITT) guided by fusion imaging in men 50 to 80 years of age with low to intermediate risk prostate cancer Prostate Cancer is currently managed with in a discrete fashion where patients either enroll in active surveillance protocols (No intervention) or undergo full intervention via whole gland treatments - most commonly radical surgery or radiation. These treatments have not shown definitive gains in all cause survival and not uncommonly harbor undesirable adverse effects, most notably: impotency and incontinence. Such events elicit significant and noticeable changes on a male lifestyle and for most prostate cancer tumors are considered overtreatment. This study aims to evaluate the use of TFA-LITT in the office setting under local anesthesia - greatly decreasing patient perioperative surgical risk - focused on the organ sparing cancer lesion ablation, where organ function is preserved. The fundamental objective is to determine the tolerance and safety of TFA-LITT in men with low to intermediate risk prostate cancer, successful performed in the outpatient office-based setting under local anesthesia directed by fusion imaging. Secondary objectives include: 1-Biopsy proven cancer control of ablated areas 12 months after procedure; 2-Uroflowmetry and urinary function Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) at one, three, six, nine and 12 months; 3- Sexual function Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) at one, three, six, nine and 12 months; 4- MRI changes of ablated area one, three and 12 months after TFA-LITT; 5- Absence or presence of ejaculation after TFA-LITT.
The objective of this Study is to collect, process, and transfer biologic samples such as blood and/or tissue biopsies to determine the concordance of detected alterations obtained through liquid biopsy analyses compared to next generation sequencing of time-matched or archival tissue specimens from individuals with advanced solid tumors. Examples of locally advanced and metastatic tumors include stage III and IV cancers (ex. lung, breast, all gastrointestinal malignancies, all gynecologic malignancies, prostate cancer, head and neck tumors, soft tissue cancers, and melanoma). These specimens will be analyzed for diagnostic purposes and research (either by Labcorp/OmniSeq or to a third-party recipient designated by Labcorp/OmniSeq). Labcorp/OmniSeq may transfer the specimens and data to its clients, including commercial, academic or non-profit research institutions; or alternatively, may retain the specimens in its repository for future research use at the sole discretion of Labcorp/OmniSeq and or assignees. Labcorp/OmniSeq will maintain all detailed clinical information including demographic data (de-identified), ethnicity, disease state, stage (radiological, pathological and clinical-whichever is relevant).
This study is designed to obtain positron emission tomography with x-ray computed tomography (PET/CT) imaging data with each tracer pair, providing the imaging data needed to develop new simultaneous dual-tracer imaging techniques and processing algorithms for these tracer pairs.
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.
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.
People with advanced chronic cancers are now living for many years as a result of new targeted anti-cancer treatments. Many of these treatments are quite new and people may take them for months, even years, as long as the treatments are helping. The purpose of this study is to help understand how to best support people receiving these treatments.
The study primarily aims at evaluating health-related quality of life after radiotherapy for prostate cancer, using modern hypofractionated radiotherapy schedules. Study design is a prospective observational cohort study. All patients give written informed consent and fill out online validated questionnaires before, during, and after radiotherapy (yearly) up to 5 years post-treatment.
With existing evidence showing the difference in miRNA expression levels between non-cancer and cancer groups, the investigators assume that levels of DNA methylation, RNA expression as well as protein concentration will also be dysregulated during disease progression. Combining the power of multi-omic cancer biomarkers, the investigators hypothesize that the sensitivity and specificity of MiRXES MCST can be significantly improved compared to existing multi-cancer diagnostic tests. In this study, the investigators propose to develop and validate blood-based, multi-cancer screening tests through a multi-omics approach.
Prostate cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer in men in the Unites States. Nearly 1 million prostate biopsy procedures are performed in the United States annually and elevated prostate-specific antigen (PSA) level is the primary reason for prostate biopsy in > 90% of cases. However, at the PSA levels which trigger prostate biopsy, often no cancer is found in prostate biopsy specimens. PSA test can be elevated due to reasons other than cancer such as inflammation or natural variation in the level. Investigators plan to treat men with elevated PSA level with over the counter anti-inflammatory medications (ibuprofen, naproxen) to see if the PSA level will decrease to an acceptable level.
