MDX-010 for Advanced Prostate Cancer

2014-08-26 22:50:53 | BioPortfolio

Summary

A total of 108 males with advanced prostate cancer will be enrolled into this study. Patients must have undergone prostate cancer staging within 180 days of enrollment. 54 patients will be randomized to receive hormone therapy alone and 54 patients will be randomized to receive hormone therapy plus the MDX-010 therapy.

Description

This trial has been designed to ensure the capture of both treatment mechanism-specific data as well as clinically meaningful data within a relatively compressed study interval. Thus, this trial is constructed around a single inductive short-term cycle of AA therapy.

Study Design

Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Conditions

Prostatic Neoplasms

Intervention

Combination Androgen Ablative Therapy, MDX-010 therapy

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Therapy with two or more separate preparations given for a combined effect.

An anti-androgen that, in the form of its acetate (CYPROTERONE ACETATE), also has progestational properties. It is used in the treatment of hypersexuality in males, as a palliative in prostatic carcinoma, and, in combination with estrogen, for the therapy of severe acne and hirsutism in females.

Preliminary cancer therapy (chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone/endocrine therapy, immunotherapy, hyperthermia, etc.) that precedes a necessary second modality of treatment.

A synthetic non-aromatizable androgen and anabolic steroid. It binds strongly to the androgen receptor and has therefore also been used as an affinity label for this receptor in the prostate and in prostatic tumors.

A therapeutic approach, involving chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or surgery, after initial regimens have failed to lead to improvement in a patient's condition. Salvage therapy is most often used for neoplastic diseases.
