A Study of Picoplatin and Docetaxel in Subjects With Prostate Cancer

2014-08-27 03:39:36 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This study will review the safety of picoplatin, a new type of platinum drug, with docetaxel, a drug commonly used in the treatment of prostate cancer. Patients who are eligible for this study will have had a diagnosis of hormone-refractory prostate cancer that has metastasized to other areas of the body, and have not been previously treated with chemotherapy drugs. Picoplatin will be administered in combination with docetaxel and prednisone to identify the maximum tolerated dose (MTD). Patients will receive IV treatments of picoplatin with docetaxel every 3 weeks, with prednisone, 5 mg orally, twice daily.

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.

A synthetic long-acting agonist of GONADOTROPIN-RELEASING HORMONE. Goserelin is used in treatments of malignant NEOPLASMS of the prostate, uterine fibromas, and metastatic breast cancer.

Antineoplastic agents that are used to treat hormone-sensitive tumors. Hormone-sensitive tumors may be hormone-dependent, hormone-responsive, or both. A hormone-dependent tumor regresses on removal of the hormonal stimulus, by surgery or pharmacological block. Hormone-responsive tumors may regress when pharmacologic amounts of hormones are administered regardless of whether previous signs of hormone sensitivity were observed. The major hormone-responsive cancers include carcinomas of the breast, prostate, and endometrium; lymphomas; and certain leukemias. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual 1994, p2079)

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).
