Clinical Trials [2187 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Implant Radiation Therapy or Surgery in Treating Patients With Prostate Cancer

RATIONALE: Receiving standard information and watching a video or DVD at home that describes treatment options and treatment outcomes may help patients decide to receive treatment in a cli...

Androgen Suppression Plus Radiation Therapy in Treating Patients With Prostate Cancer

RATIONALE: Androgens can cause the growth of prostate cancer cells. Drugs, such as leuprolide, goserelin, flutamide, or bicalutamide, may stop the adrenal glands from making androgens. Rad...

Gene Therapy and Radioactive Iodine in Treating Patients With Locally Recurrent Prostate Cancer That Did Not Respond to External-Beam Radiation Therapy

RATIONALE: Radioactive drugs, such as radioactive iodine, may carry radiation directly to tumor cells and not harm normal cells. Placing a gene called Ad5CMV-NIS in prostate cancer cells m...

Hormone Therapy Followed By Internal Radiation Therapy in Treating Patients With Locally Recurrent Prostate Cancer

RATIONALE: Androgens can stimulate the growth of prostate cancer cells. Drugs such as goserelin, leuprolide, flutamide, or bicalutamide may stop the adrenal glands from producing androgens...

Prostate Volume Changes Following Prostate Brachytherapy With Iodine-125 Seeds

The size of the prostate changes due to insertion of the radioactive seeds. We will measure the prostate size, before and after the procedure.

Outcomes and Toxicities in Intermediate-Risk Prostate Cancer Patients Treated with Brachytherapy Alone or Brachytherapy and Supplemental External Beam Radiation Therapy.

To evaluate the cancer control outcomes and long-term treatment-related morbidity of brachytherapy as well as combination brachytherapy and EBRT in patients with intermediate-risk prostate cancer.

Comparative Analysis of Clinical Outcomes and Procedural Costs between the Conventional Two-stage Technique and 4D Brachytherapy for Early Prostate Cancer.

To assess long-term outcomes and resource use of 4D Brachytherapy, a one-stage real-time implant for the treatment of prostate cancer that uses stranded and loose iodine-125 seeds, and to compare with...

Toxicity and quality of life comparison of iodine 125 brachytherapy and stereotactic radiotherapy for prostate cancers.

Quality of life is a major issue for good prognostic prostate cancer, for which brachytherapy is one of the reference treatments. Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy (SBRT) is a recent alternative however ...

Low-Dose-Rate Brachytherapy for Prostate Cancer: Outcomes Beyond 10 Years of Follow-Up.

To examine biochemical control, survival, and late morbidity with definitive low-dose-rate brachytherapy (LDR-BT) for prostate cancer patients surviving ≥10 years post-treatment.

Manual vs. automated implantation of seeds in prostate brachytherapy: Oncologic results from a single-center study.

The objective of this study was to study survival and tolerance of prostate cancer patients treated with (125)I permanent interstitial brachytherapy by automated vs. manual implantation of seeds.

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.

Stable iodine atoms that have the same atomic number as the element iodine, but differ in atomic weight. I-127 is the only naturally occurring stable iodine isotope.

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.

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).

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.
