Transdermal Testosterone and Enzalutamide in Treating Patents with Castration Resistant Prostate Cancer Receiving Androgen Deprivation Therapy
This early phase I trial studies how well testosterone works when delivered through the skin and is used alternately with enzalutamide in treating patients with castration-resistant prostate cancer who are receiving androgen deprivation therapy. Hormone therapy using testosterone may help to maintain the amount of testosterone in the body, and enzalutamide may help to reduce the prostate specific antigen level. Giving transdermal testosterone alternately with enzalutamide may work better in treating patients with castration resistant prostate cancer.
