Early Hormone Therapy In Men With A Rising PSA Live Longer Then Men Who Delay Therapy – A Phase 3 Trial

The standard of care is to offer androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) to men with prostate cancer who have a rising prostate specific antigen (PSA) after an attempt to cure their cancer with primary therapy that has failed (PSA relapse) or in men who are considered not suitable for curative treatment. The question is what is the optimal timing to begin ADT. Researchers asked if immediate ADT improves overall survival compared with delayed therapy. They created a randomized, multi-center, phase 3, non-blinded trial; recruiting men from 29 oncology centers in Australia, New Zealand, and Canada. Eligibility included men with prostate cancer [...]

Understanding Prostate Cancer Clinical Trials – Types and Stages

The decision to enroll in a clinical trial should involve a discussion between the person with prostate cancer and that individual’s physician. Your participation should depend on many factors, including your motivation for enrolling in a trial, the stage of your prostate cancer, and the trials available and its phase. When you decide to enroll in a clinical trial it is important to fully understand the trial, your possible benefits as well as any possible risks you might experience. As a first step in making a decision to participate in a trial you need to have a comprehensive conversation with your individual doctor [...]

Recurring Prostate Cancer- What ADT Treatment Schedule Is Superior?

 One of the many constantly recurring topics that we discuss is over the efficacy of intermittent hormone deprivation therapy (IAD) as opposed to continuous hormone deprivation therapy (CAD). Which therapy is better has been debated for at least ten years. The debate still rages over the question of efficacy, or survival as well as the quality of life (QOL). Often, the debate does not consider whether one therapy might be superior depending upon the individual man’s disease state. A recent study evaluated the efficacy of these two treatment schedules in men with non-metastatic relapsing, locally advanced prostate cancer. The study [...]

Belfast Clinical Trial Combining Two Radio-Therapies For Men With Advanced Prostate Cancer

Researchers at Queen’s University in Belfast along with the Belfast Trust are conducting a clinical trial evaluating the combination of two radiotherapy treatments, Radium 223 and Pelvic Radiation using Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT) in men with bone positive advanced prostate cancer. The trial, being called ADRRAD trial, involves combining androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) along with the two radio-therapies. Treatment is expected to last about 18 months. VMAT is an externally delivered type of radiotherapy that manipulates radiation beams to adapt to the shape of the tumor, delivering a more precise dose of radiation and limiting damage to surrounding tissue. Radium 223 is [...]
