This is an extension of an ongoing study. Preliminary results from the ongoing study indicate that the MyProstateScore 2.0 (MPS 2.0) Test is significantly improving early diagnosis of prostate cancer. This extension will allow us to ask the study participants in the ongoing study to share patient-level data for chart abstraction. The specific purpose of this study is to generate high-quality real-world data on the clinical utility of LynxDx's new MPS 2.0 test.
The purpose of this study is to provide access to Ga-68-PSMA-11 PET for evaluation of male veterans with newly diagnosed or biochemically recurrent prostate cancer. All patients will receive conventional imaging (MRI, CT, and/or a molecular imaging bone scan) as well as Ga-68-PSMA-11 PET in order to evaluate the utility of diagnostic testing in patients with positive PSA status, a comparison of results from conventional imaging and PSMA PET imagining will be performed.
This study is designed to evaluate the presence and numbers of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) and cancer related gene expression levels in subjects with localized high-risk prostate cancer (HRLPC) and from subjects with non-metastatic disease experiencing biochemical recurrence and castration-resistance (BCRLPC and NMCRPC groups, respectively) who are about to undergo next generation imaging (NGI, such as Axumin® or PSMA PETCT). The investigators will also evaluate subjects with localized indolent prostate cancer who are on active surveillance (AS) as a control population. The CTC and gene expression results will be evaluated for association with disease state and progression and survival.
Stage 2B: NanoTherm ablation of focal prostate cancer in small lesions in Gleason 3+4 disease. The outcome of this ablation is validated by a transperineal biopsy at 4 months after ablation.
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 is a retrospective, proof of concept study, which aims at reconstructing the cellular heterogeneity of the tumor in multi-needle diagnostic prostate biopsy as well as any biopsy containing potentially pre-malignant tissue, to study its implications in the clinical history of the disease. For each patient, 2 or more samples will be prepared starting from the FFPE diagnostic material. The biopsy used for assigning the Gleason score will be sequenced, together with two or more of the local peri-proximal biopsies with a higher level of differentiation. Samples will undergo Whole Exome Sequencing with an average coverage of 300x at the Wellcome Sanger Institute (WSI, Hinxton, UK). Sequencing data will be analysed for single nucleotide variants, copy number variants and structural variants by using state-of-the-art data analysis pipeline at WSI. 1. Reconstruction of local PCa heterogeneity in multi-needle diagnostic biopsy with different Gleason scores (6-10) using high-coverage whole exome sequencing (WES) and DP-based clonal analysis; 2. Characterization of the relationships between pathological differentiation (Gleason score) and genomics-measured heterogeneity and malignancy features; 3. Assessment of clinical implications of clonal heterogeneity. The study will include an average of 150 prostatic diagnostic biopsies from a cohort of 20 early metastatic PC patients and 20 non-relapsing/non-metastatic patients with indolent malignant disease.
This research project has 2 parts: The first part of the research is to develop a couples-based group mindfulness intervention for men undergoing prostatectomy, with input from patients and their partners. The second part is the trial registered here, which will pilot the researchers' mindfulness intervention, developed in part 1, and observe any reduction of distress for men undergoing prostatectomy and their partners.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate a new ultrasound technique. This technique may provide additional and improved information about the stiffness and sizes of the internal structures of your prostate in order to improve the guidance for a targeted biopsy. The investigational, custom-designed probe and needle guide will be used to produce images of your prostate and provide guidance for up to 4 additional biopsy samples (cores) prior to a standard magnetic resonance (MR) ultrasound fusion biopsy procedure. Above the time required for the MR ultrasound fusion biopsy, this study will take up to 30 additional minutes of time for collection of the investigational device guided collection of biopsy samples Risks of participation include increased time under anesthesia (to collect additional biopsies) and slight heating of tissue.
At the time of study termination, NUV-422-02 was a first-in-human, open-label, Phase 1 dose escalation study designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of NUV-422. The study population comprised adults with recurrent or refractory high-grade gliomas (HGGs), metastatic breast cancer (mBC), with and without brain metastases, and recurrent or refractory metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC). All patients self-administered NUV-422 orally in 28-day cycles until disease progression, toxicity, withdrawal of consent, or termination of the study.
The majority of all new prostate cancer cases are diagnosed in men aged > 70 years, with the highest incidence in men aged > 90 years. Management options for localized prostate cancer include active surveillance in patients with low-risk disease, radical prostatectomy or external beam radiation therapy. In previous studies, hypofractionated prostate cancer irradiation regimens have been shown to represent a highly effective treatment option for prostate cancer. However, patients aged 75 years or older were underrepresented in most trials resulting in the lack of a robust evidence base. The proposed study will evaluate radiation-induced toxicity as well as outcome after hypofractionated external beam radiotherapy in prostate cancer patients aged 75 years or older.
