RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as docetaxel and prednisone, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Monoclonal antibodies, such as bevacizumab, can block tumor growth in different ways. Some block the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Others find tumor cells and help kill them or carry tumor-killing substances to them. Bevacizumab may also stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking blood flow to the tumor. It is not yet known whether docetaxel, prednisone, and bevacizumab are more effective than docetaxel and prednisone in treating prostate cancer.
PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is studying docetaxel, prednisone, and bevacizumab to see how well they work compared to docetaxel and prednisone in treating patients with prostate cancer that did not respond to hormone therapy.
- Compare overall survival of patients with hormone-refractory metastatic adenocarcinoma of the prostate treated with docetaxel and prednisone with vs without bevacizumab.
- Compare progression-free survival of patients treated with these regimens.
- Compare the proportion of patients treated with these regimens who experience a 50% post-treatment prostate-specific antigen decline from baseline.
- Compare the proportion of patients treated with these regimens who experience ≥ grade 3 toxic effects.
OUTLINE: This is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter study. Patients are stratified according to predicted 24-month survival probability (< 10% vs 10-29.9% vs ≥ 30%), age (< 65 years vs ≥ 65 years), and prior history of arterial events (i.e., cardiac ischemia/infarction, CNS cerebrovascular ischemia, peripheral arterial ischemia, or CNS hemorrhage) (yes vs no). Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 treatment arms.
- Arm I: Patients receive docetaxel IV over 1 hour and placebo IV over 30-90 minutes on day 1. Patients also receive oral prednisone once daily on days 1-21.
- Arm II: Patients receive docetaxel and prednisone as in arm I. Patients also receive bevacizumab IV over 30-90 minutes on day 1.
In both arms, courses repeat every 21 days for up to 2 years in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed periodically for up to 5 years.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Approximately 1,020 patients (510 per treatment arm) will be accrued for this study within 3 years.
