The purpose of this study is to collect a urine sample from patients with prostate and urothelial (bladder) cancer and healthy volunteers who do not have cancer, so that researchers can perform studies on microcellular structures called exosomes that may eventually lead to a new type of urinary biomarker test for prostate and urothelial cancer.
This research study is examining whether Neratinib has any activity in participants with prostate cancer that has spread and is no longer responding to hormonal treatment. - The names of the study drug involved in this study is neratinib.
The investigators propose a prospective study to assess recovery of urinary and sexual function by nerve sparing techniques after radical prostatectomy.
The study is designed to confirm the performance of the ExoDx Prostate test in prior negative biopsy patients now presenting for a repeat prostate biopsy. Note: ExoDx Prostate test results are collected for correlation to biopsy results and are not disclosed to the physician or study subject.
The investigators are conducting a prospective, randomized trial to investigate whether patients randomized to receive an augmented bladder neck reconstruction (aBNR) at the time of robotic-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy experience improved urinary function post-operatively compared to patients who undergo prostatectomy with a standard BNR. An aBNR here consists of the autologous medial umbilical ligament sling as well as a bladder neck intussusception stitch. The standard BNR group will receive the intussusception stitch only.
This is a randomized study aiming to assess the feasibility of a phase II randomized controlled trial of different high-intensity training interventions and usual care (UC) in men with prostate cancer (PCa) undergoing active surveillance (AS).
This study evaluates the use of NanoPac injected directly into the prostate lesion in men with prostate cancer.
This is a prospective, randomized, open-label, phase II trial of cabozantinib in subjects with untreated, high risk prostate cancer undergoing radical prostatectomy. This multicenter study will enroll 30 subjects. Duke is the lead site for this trial. There will be a second site selected TBD. Patients will be assigned (first 9 subjects only) or randomized 2:1 to either: (1) cabozantinib 40 mg by mouth daily for 4 weeks, followed by a 2 week drug washout period before prostatectomy (n = 20), or (2) immediate prostatectomy within 12 weeks of registration (n = 10). The first 9 subjects (6 subjects assigned to cabozantinib treatment, 3 subjects assigned to immediate prostatectomy) will constitute the Safety Lead-In Cohort, which will be only accrued at Duke. After six subjects have received cabozantinib and completed the 57-85 day safety visit without triggering a stopping rule, subjects may be accrued at the ex-Duke site. The primary goal is to compare pathologic apoptotic indices (cleaved caspase-3) in prostatectomy specimens from patients who undergo immediate prostatectomy (controls) versus those who receive with cabozantinib followed by prostatectomy. The secondary objective is to conduct immune phenotypic profiling on the peripheral blood and tumor microenvironment in prostatectomy specimens from both groups. A statistical analysis will be used to compare the apoptotic indices between the two groups.
Conventional treatment options for localized prostate cancer include prostatectomy, radiotherapy and active surveillance. However, prostatectomy and radiotherapy carry certain degree of morbidity, including the risks of urinary incontinence, erectile dysfunction and injury to the structures in the proximity. Active surveillance carries the risk of disease progression and psychological distress to the patients. Focal therapy employs the concept of only destroying the significant lesion, resulting in disease cure and improved functional outcome. Among the different options of focal therapy, high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is one of the most commonly employed energy sources. It exerts its effect through thermal and mechanical destruction of cancer tissue. This study aims at assess the effectiveness of such treatment in prostate cancer management. In this study, investigators evaluate the early oncological outcome and objective functional outcome of patients undergoing HIFU for the treatment of localized intermediate risk prostate cancer.
This is a single-center, single arm, open-label phase II study evaluating the safety, anti-tumor effect, and immunogenicity of neoadjuvant Dupixent given prior to radical prostatectomy.
