Assessment Of Dutasteride (AVODART) In Extending The Time To Progression Of Low-Risk, Localized Prostate Cancer In Men
The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of dutasteride on the inhibition of low-risk, localized prostate cancer progression in men who would otherwise receive no active therapy (expectant management).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A glycoprotein that is a kallikrein-like serine proteinase and an esterase, produced by epithelial cells of both normal and malignant prostate tissue. It is an important marker for the diagnosis of prostate cancer.
A synthetic retinoid that is used orally as a chemopreventive against prostate cancer and in women at risk of developing contralateral breast cancer. It is also effective as an antineoplastic agent.
Ultrasound, High-intensity Focused, Transrectal
Tissue ablation of the PROSTATE performed by ultrasound from a transducer placed in the RECTUM. The procedure is used to treat prostate cancer (PROSTATIC NEOPLASMS) and benign prostatic hypertrophy (PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIA).
Prostatic Secretory Proteins
Proteins secreted by the prostate gland. The major secretory proteins from the human prostate gland include PROSTATE-SPECIFIC ANTIGEN, prostate-specific acid phosphatase, prostate-specific membrane antigen, and prostate-specific protein-94.
Tumors or cancer of the PROSTATE.
The purpose of this study is to determine if the drug dutasteride increases expression of genes that slow the growth of prostate cancer during treatment with intermittent androgen ablation...
Dutasteride inhibits the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) the male hormone that leads to benign prostate growth. By blocking the conversion of testosterone to DHT,...
Patients with diagnosis of HPIN were enrolled. Patients were randomized into two groups: dutasteride treatment group and watchful waiting strategy group. According to the study protocol th...
This is a study of men who have undergone a standard 10 or more core biopsy for detection of prostate cancer and determined to have prostate cancer Gleason score ≤ 7 (low to moderate ris...
The combination of ketaconazole and hydrocortisone is commonly used for the treatment of prostate cancer. The purpose of this study is to determine if the addition of a drug called dutast...
This overview presents new studies on prostate cancer. The effect of dutasteride and the dependency of age, risk constellation, and tumor-specific survival on prostate cancer are described. In additio...
The effect of 5α reductase inhibitors in prostate cancer has been extensively investigated. The studies determined that finasteride and also dutasteride reduced the risk of prostate cancer; however,...
OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to assess the effect of dutasteride on serum prostate specific antigen (PSA) levels in men with serologic relapse following radical prostatectomy and/or radi...
