Clinical Trials Using Cyclodextrin-Based Polymer-Camptothecin CRLX101

Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. The clinical trials on this list are studying Cyclodextrin-Based Polymer-Camptothecin CRLX101. 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.

  • Combining CRLX101, a Nanoparticle Camptothecin, With Enzalutamide in People With Progressive Metastatic Castration Resistant Prostate Cancer Following Prior Enzalutamide Treatment

    Background: Some prostate cancer keeps growing even when testosterone in the body drops to very low levels. This is called castrate-resistant prostate cancer. One treatment is enzalutamide. This is a modern hormonal therapy. But it only works for a certain amount of time and then the cancer becomes resistant to it. Researchers want to see if adding the treatment CRLX101 could make enzalutamide work again for people who have already had it. Objective: To test a new way of treating prostate cancer using CRLX101 plus enzalutamide in people with certain prostate cancer who already had enzalutamide treatment. Eligibility: Adults ages 18 years and older with metastatic, castration-resistant prostate cancer who have had enzalutamide treatment Design: Participants will be screened with a medical history and physical exam. They will have blood and urine tests. They will have a scan of the chest / abdomen / pelvis. They will have a bone scan. Participants will get treatment in cycles. A cycle lasts 28 days. They will take enzalutamide by mouth once a day. They will get CRLX101 through an IV every 1 or 2 weeks. Participants will repeat screening tests throughout the study. Participants will have a follow-up visit 3-4 weeks after they stop taking the study drug. They will repeat most screening tests and have an electrocardiogram.
