The goal of this clinical research study is learn if adding axitinib to hormonal therapy can help to control prostate cancer when given before surgery. The safety of this drug will also be studied.
This is a study for men who have locally-advanced prostate cancer and are eligible to undergo prostatectomy. Standard treatment is prostatectomy alone, but there is a chance that cancer may spread to other organs in the future, even after the prostate is removed. If this were to occur, standard treatment would be androgen deprivation therapy (ADT; hormone therapy that blocks testosterone) plus chemotherapy. Clinical trials suggest that neoadjuvant treatment (treatment given b...
RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to damage tumor cells and may be an effective treatment for prostate cancer. PURPOSE: Randomized phase III trial to compare treatment with or without adjuvant radiation therapy in men with stage III prostate cancer who have had radical prostatectomy and lymphadenectomy recently.
This phase I trial studies the side effects of cytoreductive prostatectomy in treating patients with newly diagnosed prostate cancer that has spread from the primary site to other places in the body. Cytoreductive prostatectomy is a type of surgery that removes the prostate and as much of the tumor as possible. When combined with hormone therapy, robotic assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) or conventional open retropubic radical prostatectomy (RRP) may prolong survival in pat...
The purpose of establishing the database is to evaluate the effects of surgical removal of the prostate (prostatectomy) and cryosurgery on prostate cancer, quality of life, and overall health.
The purpose of this study is to compare the effects, good and/or bad, of different doses of SBRT given before prostatectomy. Depending when participants enter the study, they will be treated with either 5, 6 or 7 gray (Gy) per day of radiation. A Gy is a measure of radiation dose. The standard dose is 10Gy per day when SBRT is the only treatment to the prostate and no surgery is planned. The researchers want to see which dose of radiation will work best with the least amount of...
Compare the incidence of acute rectal, bladder and other acute toxicities between 3-D Conformal Radiation Therapy (RT/CRT) and Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) in Post-Prostatectomy Prostate Cancer Patients treated with post-operative radiation therapy
The purpose of this study is to determine whether pre-operative prostate artery embolization (PAE) reduces intra-operative blood loss and improves surgical outcomes among prostate cancer patients undergoing robot-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (RALRP).
This study is being done to determine the highest safe dose of the combination of temsirolimus and axitinib; to learn the side effects when these drugs are given together; and to determine how the patient's disease responds to treatment. The combination of the drugs temsirolimus and axitinib has not been studied before so it is unknown whether this treatment will have any benefit in the patient's cancer. Temsirolimus is commercially available and approved for treatment of som...
RATIONALE: Hormones can stimulate the production of prostate cancer cells. Hormone therapy may fight prostate cancer by reducing the production of androgens. Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. It is not yet known whether hormone therapy plus mitoxantrone and prednisone is more effective than hormone therapy alone for prostate cancer. PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is studying hormone therapy, m...
The study population will be 80 adult men who have been diagnosed with prostate cancer who are scheduled to have their prostate surgically removed at either the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) or the Ralph H. Johnson VAMC, both located in Charleston, SC. The men will be randomized into two groups: one group will take vitamin D3 supplementation and the other will take a placebo. Blood levels of vitamin D3 will be obtained at the beginning of the study and again after...
RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to damage tumor cells and may be an effective treatment for prostate cancer. PURPOSE: Randomized phase III trial to compare radiation therapy with no further treatment in treating patients with stage III prostate cancer following radical prostatectomy.
RATIONALE: Prostatectomy may be an effective treatment for prostate cancer that has not responded to radiation therapy. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well prostatectomy works in treating patients with recurrent or persistent prostate cancer that has not responded to radiation therapy.
To assess the safety of treating men with oligometastatic prostate cancer with the following therapy: (1st) Systemic chemo-hormonal therapy with up to 6-months (~24 weeks) of neoadjuvant androgen deprivation and up to 6 cycles of chemotherapy, (2nd) definitive local tumor control with prostatectomy +/- adjuvant radiation therapy, and (3rd) consolidative stereotactic radiation to oligometastatic lesions. The men will receive a total of 1 year of androgen deprivation. Androgen bl...
The purpose of this trial is to assess the effects of combined therapy with androgen ablation and OGX-011 (an antisense to clusterin) given prior to radical prostatectomy on pathologic complete response rates in men with localized prostate cancer and high risk features.
RATIONALE: The use of lycopene, a substance found in tomatoes, may keep prostate cancer from growing or coming back after surgery. PURPOSE: This randomized phase II trial is studying different doses of lycopene to compare how well they work in treating patients undergoing radical prostatectomy for prostate cancer.
RATIONALE: Studying changes in thymus function in patients who have been undergoing androgen blockade therapy for prostate cancer may help doctors learn more about how well patients will respond to treatment, may help in planning cancer treatment, and may help the study of cancer in the future. PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying the effect of androgen blockade therapy on thymus function in older patients who have undergone radical prostatectomy for localized prostate ...
RATIONALE: Celecoxib may stop the growth of cancer by stopping blood flow to the tumor and by blocking the enzymes necessary for tumor cell growth. PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of celecoxib in treating patients who have relapsed prostate cancer following radiation therapy or radical prostatectomy.
RATIONALE: Androgens can stimulate the growth of prostate cancer cells. Hormone therapy using toremifene may fight prostate cancer by reducing the production of androgens. PURPOSE: Randomized phase II trial to study the effectiveness of toremifene followed by radical prostatectomy in treating patients who have stage I or stage II prostate cancer.
The purpose of this study is to find out what effects, good and bad, the combination of docetaxel with CG1940/CG8711 (immunotherapy drugs) have on destroying prostate cancer before removal the prostate (prostatectomy).
RATIONALE: Nerve-sparing radical prostatectomy with nerve grafting followed by standard therapies for erectile dysfunction may be effective in helping patients with prostate cancer improve sexual satisfaction and quality of life. It is not yet known whether erectile dysfunction therapy and nerve-sparing prostatectomy are more effective with or without nerve grafting. PURPOSE: This randomized phase II trial is studying nerve grafting and standard therapy to see how well t...
National multicentric prospective open study, comparing two current surgical methods: laparoscopic way versus open retropubic way among patients requiring a radical prostatectomy for a localised prostate cancer.
RATIONALE: Watchful waiting until symptoms appear may be effective in patients with prostate cancer. It is not yet known if watchful waiting is more effective than prostatectomy for early prostate cancer. PURPOSE: Randomized phase III trial to compare surgery with watchful waiting in men who have stage I or stage II prostate cancer.
Compare peri-operative and postoperative outcomes of the three different surgical approaches to prostatectomy
Sometimes blood levels of prostatic specific antigen (PSA) will rise in men who have had prostate surgery or received radiation therapy for localized prostate cancer. A low value for the PSA is more desirable as is may indicate no tumor growth. Giving the hormone therapy intermittently (in cycles of treatment and off treatment periods) appears to delay the change of prostate cancer to a type of prostate cancer that resists hormone therapy. If it does, the prostate cancer wil...
