This is Pilot study that investigates the CBCT(Cone beam computed tomography) image quality improvement provided by the 2D antiscatter grid technology. The primary objective is to assess the improvement in tissue visualization in an observer study, which will be conducted in a blinded fashion.
This study will find out if a meal replacement of this type is satisfying and tolerable for men with prostate cancer. Participants will receive meal replacements of TalityTM as their expected sole source of nutrition for 4 weeks. The purpose of the study is to test whether TalityTM Synthetic Meal Replacements are suitable to be used in larger studies of patients with prostate or other types of cancer.
This study is being conducted to determine whether the combination of imaging agents 68-Ga RM2 and 68-Ga PMSA11 is better at assessing response to high dose rate (HDR) local therapy than standard imaging or biopsy in patients with known prostate cancer (PC)
The goal of this study is to investigate the feasibility and toxicity of using prostate-specific membrane antigen-positron emission tomography (PSMA-PET) and multi-parametric magnetic resonance imagining (mpMRI) with PET-MR technology to define radiotherapy targets, while meeting all the current planning criteria.
This study is being conducted to determine whether the combination of imaging agents 68-Ga RM2 and 68-Ga PMSA11 is better at assessing response to high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) or high dose rate (HDR) local therapy than standard imaging or biopsy in patients with known prostate cancer.
Phase III study that aims to evaluate the necessity of prophylactic antibiotics use after HDR brachytherapy in the treatment of prostate adenocarcinomas.
The objective of the study is to evaluate 68Ga PSMA 11 PET/MRI and 68Ga RM2 PET/MRI for biopsy guidance in patients with suspected prostate cancer.
The overall objective of this study is to acquire ultrasound images, spectral data and prostate tissue biopsy cores using the ClariCore System via a transperineal approach.
Prostate cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer among men over 50 years old in Western societies, with an incidence that is steadily increasing in most countries. The current, most commonly used biomarker for prostate cancer is prostate specific antigen (PSA), which has well known limitations in accuracy and requires additional testing. However, prostate cancer cells secrete exosomes, also known as prostasomes, which are only detectable in the blood of prostate cancer patients. The presence of prostasomes in the blood is in itself a prostate cancer diagnosis. However, the assay that has been designed for the purification of prostasomes requires additional testing for evaluating its robustness and usefulness in the clinical setting. Additionally, the evaluation of the cargo of the purified prostasomes may provide more information on the nature of the prostate cancer, which may help develop a molecular assay for a prostate cancer liquid biopsy rather than a tissue biopsy. Therefore, the purpose of this study is two-fold: a validation phase where the purification of prostasomes will be tested on plasma collected from prostate cancer patients and a molecular testing phase where the contents of the purified prostasomes will be evaluated on their ability to determine the grade of the prostate tumors. We will collaborate with Dr. Masood Kamali-Moghaddam at the Uppsala University (Department of Immunology, Genetics and Pathology) for molecular assay processing.
A diet consisting of a reduced quantity of the essential amino acid methionine sensitizes cancer cells to radiation therapy and reduces metastasis formation and disease progression in mice. However, to date, dietary restriction of methionine has not been tested in combination with radiation therapy in humans as a strategy to improve patient outcomes.
