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.
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.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment
Combination Androgen Ablative Therapy, MDX-010 therapy
Active, not recruiting

The purpose of this study is to assess the effect of zoledronic acid on bone mineral density in prostatic cancer patients currently receiving androgen deprivation therapy.
The overall goal of this proposal is to determine the effectiveness and safety of once weekly alendronate (Fosamax) in the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis in men with prostate can...
Effectiveness and Safety of Firmagon® in Androgen Ablative Therapy of Advanced Hormone-dependent Prostate Carcinoma. The period until Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) progression during th...
To evaluate and compare the efficacy of androgen deprivation with or without Docetaxel as determined by the median progression free survival (PFS) within the period of 18 months of therapy...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate how safe PS-341(VELCADE) is when given with Docetaxel (Taxotere) to patients with androgen-independent prostate cancer, and also to see what effect...
Feasibility study of a randomized controlled trial comparing docetaxel chemotherapy and androgen deprivation therapy with sequential prostatic biopsies from patients with advanced non-castration-resistant prostate cancer.
Sequential tissue biopsies taken during clinical trials of novel systemic anticancer therapies for advanced prostate cancer (PCa) may aid pharmacodynamic evaluation and biomarker discovery. We conduct...
Benign prostatic enlargement is the main cause of male lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS). The distinction and quantification of voiding, storage and postmicturition symptoms help clinicians decide o...
In men with advanced carcinoma of the prostate being treated with androgen deprivation therapy (ADT), hot flashes can be a significant side effect of the treatment. In this paper we describe using acu...
Stereotactic ablative radiation therapy (SABR) is increasingly used to treat lung oligometastases. We set out to determine the safety and efficacy of this approach and to identify factors associated w...
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.

Endocrine disorders are grouped into two categories: hormone imbalance - when a gland produces too much or too little of an endocrine hormone development of lesions (such as nodules or tumors) in the endocrine system, which may or may not affect...
