Safety Study & Effectiveness of Docetaxel With RAD001 and Bevacizumab in Men With Advanced Prostate Cancer

2014-10-23 16:11:45 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Prostate cancer is a common and important health issue. Although effective treatment is often available for localized disease, metastatic prostate cancer remains incurable. The initial treatment for metastatic prostate cancer often includes medical or surgical treatments that deprive the tumor of male hormones (androgens) required for growth. Although this treatment is successful for many patients, the cancer may eventually return in others. Recurrent prostate cancer may be treated with additional hormonal agents, but these agents usually do not result in long-term control of the disease. Eventually most patients with recurrent prostate cancer progress to a state where the cancer grows despite very low level of circulating male hormones known as androgen independent prostate cancer (AIPC).

Description

Patients will undergo a screening procedure to determine eligibility of trial. During the treatment period, the patient will be given docetaxel/bevacizumab on day 1 followed by RAD001 continuously on days 2-21 and this is called a treatment cycle. Patients will be able to continue to receive multiple treatment courses as long as the cancer does not get worse and the person does not develop other problems that would prevent him from staying in the study. The final part of the research is the study completion period which includes an end of treatment visit and subsequent follow-up visits. These visits take place whenever the research medication is stopped, even if it is stopped early. For the patient's safety, he/she should at least complete the end of treatment visit.
