Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. The clinical trials on this list are for prostate cancer treatment. All trials on the list are supported by NCI.

NCI’s basic information about clinical trials explains the types and phases of trials and how they are carried out. Clinical trials look at new ways to prevent, detect, or treat disease. You may want to think about taking part in a clinical trial. Talk to your doctor for help in deciding if one is right for you.

Trials 276-300 of 316

  • Extended-Release Metformin for the Treatment of Prostate Cancer

    This phase II trial studies the effect of extended-release metformin in treating prostate cancer patients. PSA is a protein made by the prostate gland and found in the blood. PSA blood levels may be higher than normal in men who have prostate cancer, benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), or infection or inflammation of the prostate gland. PSA doubling time is the time, usually reported in months, that it takes for the PSA level to double in value. Current research shows that PSA doubling time is an important marker of disease progression and survival in men with prostate cancer. Faster doubling times are associated with negative disease outcomes. This trial may help researchers learn if extended-release metformin is an effective treatment to increase or prolong PSA doubling time or decrease PSA levels to prevent prostate cancer disease progression.

  • Pilot Study to Investigate Magnetic Resonance (MR) Image Guided Focal Therapy in Prostate Cancer

    Background: The ability to treat early prostate cancer is still limited. Thermal ablation methods are being tested for focal prostate cancer therapy. Researchers want to improve on these methods. Objective: To understand if Transurethral UltraSound Ablation (TULSA) in combination with MRI guidance is useful to treat localized prostate cancer. Eligibility: English-speaking adults ages 18 and older with localized prostate cancer that can be seen on MRI and can be treated by thermal ablation. Design: Participants will be screened with the following: - Medical history - Physical exam - Digital rectal exam - Blood and urine tests - Electrocardiogram - Tumor biopsy - Questionnaire to assess urinary tract symptoms - MRI of the pelvis. The MRI scanner is a long, narrow tube. Participants will lie on a bed that moves in and out of the scanner. Participants may also be screened with the following: - Echocardiogram - Chest x-ray - Bone scan - Urodynamic studies to see how well the bladder, sphincters, and urethra hold and release urine - MRI of the brain - Transrectal ultrasound - Computer tomography (CT) scan of the chest, abdomen, and pelvis. A CT scan is a series of x-ray images taken of parts of the body. Some screening tests will be repeated during the study. Participants will have the TULSA procedure. They will have an MRI for guidance. A small ultrasound applicator will be placed into their urethra. It uses heat to destroy the cancer areas in the prostate. It is controlled by a robotic arm. A cooling catheter will be placed into their rectum. Participants will use a urethral catheter for 1-7 days. Participants will have follow-up visits at 3, 6, 12, 18, 24, and 36 months.

  • Focal Radiation Therapy, Androgen Deprivation Therapy, Abiraterone, Prednisone, and Olaparib for the Treatment of Castration-Sensitive Oligometastatic Prostate Cancer

    This phase II trial studies the effect of focal radiation therapy, androgen deprivation therapy (ADT), abiraterone, prednisone, and olaparib in treating patients with castration-sensitive prostate cancer that has spread to a few other places in the body (oligometastatic). Focal radiation therapy is a highly targeted way of delivering radiation to treat cancerous tumors. The technique allows radiation oncologists to deliver radiation from multiple directions. ADT is a hormone therapy. Prostate cancer cannot grow or survive without androgens, which include testosterone and other male hormones. This type of therapy decreases the amount of androgens in a patient's body which can slow the growth of the cancer and even shrink the tumor. Abiraterone works by decreasing the amount of certain hormones, including testosterone, in the body. It is used in combination with prednisone to treat a certain type of prostate cancer that has spread to other parts of the body. Prednisone is a steroid that is used to lessen inflammation and lower the body’s immune response. Olaparib is drug known as a PARP inhibitor. A PARP inhibitor is a substance that blocks an enzyme in cells called PARP. PARP helps repair deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) when it becomes damaged. DNA damage may be caused by many things, including exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light, radiation, certain anticancer drugs, or other substances in the environment. In cancer treatment, blocking PARP may help keep cancer cells from repairing their damaged DNA, causing them to die. Giving focal radiation therapy, ADT, abiraterone, prednisone, and olaparib may help treat patients with castration-sensitive prostate cancer.

  • A Supplement Containing Quercetin, Bromelain, Rye Flower Pollen, and Papain for the Reduction of Radiation-Induced Prostatitis

    This phase II trial studies the effect of a supplement containing quercetin, bromelain, rye flower pollen, and papain in reducing the severity of radiation-induced prostatitis. Low dose rate (LDR) brachytherapy, more commonly known as prostate “seed implant” involves permanent implementation of tiny radioactive sources into the prostate gland. These isotopes are usually palladium-131 or iodine-125. The radiation disappears over time (decays). High dose rate (HDR) brachytherapy involves the temporary implantation of a radioactive source (usually Iridium-192) that is then removed. Both HDR and LDR brachytherapy can cause inflammation of the prostate. Giving a supplement containing quercetin, bromelain, rye flower pollen, and papain may help relieve the symptoms associated with radiation induced brachytherapy.

  • Abiraterone Acetate, Prednisone, Leuprolide, Niraparib, and Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy for the Treatment of High Risk or Node Positive Prostate Cancer, The ASCLEPIuS Trial

    This phase I / II trial investigates the best dose of niraparib and how well it works when given together with abiraterone acetate, prednisone, leuprolide, and stereotactic body radiotherapy in treating patients with high risk or node positive prostate cancer. PARPs are proteins that help repair DNA mutations. PARP inhibitors, such as niraparib, can keep PARP from working, so tumor cells can't repair themselves, and they may stop growing. Abiraterone acetate and leuprolide may fight prostate cancer by lowering the amount of testosterone made by the body. Anti-inflammatory drugs, such as prednisone lower the body’s immune response and are used with other drugs in the treatment of some types of cancer. Stereotactic body radiotherapy uses special equipment to position a patient and deliver radiation to tumors with high precision. This method may kill tumor cells with fewer doses over a shorter period and cause less damage to normal tissue. Giving niraparib together with abiraterone acetate, prednisone, leuprolide and stereotactic body radiotherapy may kill more tumor cells.

  • Single-Port Versus Multi-Port Robotic Radical Prostatectomy for the Treatment of Prostate Cancer

    This phase III trial compares the effect of single-port versus multi-port robotic radical prostatectomy in treating patients with prostate cancer. Single-port robotic radical prostatectomy is a surgery during which a single incision is made. Multi-port robotic radical prostatectomy is a surgery during which six small incisions are made. This study aims to understand whether a single incision surgery ends up with better recovery after surgery.
