  • Radiation Therapy and Androgen Deprivation Therapy with or without Abiraterone Acetate and Apalutamide in Treating Patients with Prostate Cancer

    This randomized phase II trial studies how well radiation therapy and androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) works when given together with apalutamide and abiraterone acetate in treating patients with prostate cancer. Radiation therapy uses high energy x-rays to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. ADT blocks the function of hormones including testosterone which prostate cancer uses to grow and spread. Abiraterone acetate and apalutamide may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving radiation therapy and ADT with apalutamide and abiraterone acetate may work better in treating patients with prostate cancer.

  • Apalutamide, Abiraterone Acetate, and Prednisone in Treating Patients with Chemotherapy-Naive Metastatic Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer

    This phase II trial studies how well apalutamide, abiraterone acetate, and prednisone work in treating patients with castration-resistant prostate cancer that has spread to other parts of the body and have not had prior treatment with chemotherapy. Androgens, or male sex hormones, can cause the growth of prostate cancer cells. It is believed apalutamide may help stop or slow the growth of prostate cancer cell growth by blocking the male sex hormones. Abiraterone acetate is a drug that blocks the remaining or residual male sex hormones in the body that may be helping prostate cancer to grow. Prednisone may help abiraterone acetate work better by making tumor cells more sensitive to the drug. Giving apalutamide, abiraterone acetate, and prednisone together may work better in treating patients with prostate cancer.

  • Androgen-Deprivation Therapy, Apalutamide, and Radiation Therapy Followed by Docetaxel in Treating Patients with Recurrent Prostate Cancer after Radical Prostatectomy

    This phase II trial studies how well androgen-deprivation therapy, apalutamide, and radiation therapy followed by docetaxel work in treating patients with prostate cancer that has come back (recurrent) after radical prostatectomy. Hormone therapy such as androgen-deprivation therapy may fight prostate cancer by blocking the production and interfere with the action of hormones. Apalutamide may help stop or slow the growth of prostate cancer cells. Radiation therapy uses high energy x-rays to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as docetaxel, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving androgen-deprivation therapy, apalutamide, radiation therapy followed by docetaxel may work better in treating patients with prostate cancer.
