RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as docetaxel, work in different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Erlotinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking the enzymes necessary for their growth. Combining docetaxel with erlotinib may kill more tumor cells.
- Determine the response rate and response duration in older patients with progressive hormone refractory prostate cancer treated with docetaxel and erlotinib.
- Determine the safety of this regimen in these patients.
- Evaluate the quality of life of patients treated with this regimen.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
- Initial combination therapy: Patients receive docetaxel IV over 1 hour on day 1 and oral erlotinib once daily on days 1-21. Treatment repeats every 21 days for up to 9 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients with responding disease receive 3 additional courses beyond maximal response.
- Extension phase: After 9 courses of initial combination therapy, patients achieving a complete response, partial response, or stable disease receive 8 courses of erlotinib alone (total of 17 courses of study treatment).
Quality of life is assessed at baseline, day 1 of each course, and at the end of study treatment. For patients in the extension phase, quality of life is also assessed on day 1 of courses 10, 12, 14, and 16.
Patients are followed every 3 months.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 22 patients will be accrued for this study within 24 months.

This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of erlotinib hydrochloride in treating non-small cell lung cancer that has spread to other parts of the body or cannot be removed ...
A randomised phase II trial of docetaxel versus docetaxel plus carboplatin in patients with castration-resistant prostate cancer who have progressed after response to prior docetaxel chemotherapy: The RECARDO trial.
Docetaxel is standard first-line chemotherapy for patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate carcinoma (mCRPC). Docetaxel re-challenge has never been tested in a prospective randomised con...
At least to date, no effective treatment for advanced castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) has been established. Recent studies indicated that cell division cycle 20 homolog (Cdc20) overexpress...
Chemotherapy has been explored as a treatment option for metastatic prostate cancer since the early 1980s. Docetaxel, a taxane chemotherapeutic, was approved for the treatment of men with metastatic c...
Docetaxel used for first-line treatment of advanced prostate cancer (PCa) is only marginally effective. We previously showed, using the LTL-313H subrenal capsule patient-derived metastatic PCa xenogra...
Our previous work has demonstrated that miR-323 enhances tumor angiogenesis in prostate cancer. In the present study, we sought to determine the function of miR-323 in prostate cancer cell growth and ...
A quinazoline derivative and ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT that functions as a PROTEIN KINASE INHIBITOR for EGFR associated tyrosine kinase. It is used in the treatment of NON-SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER.
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 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.
Prostate cancer (cancer de prostata) Prostate cancer (cancer de prostata) is a form of cancer that develops in the prostate, a gland in the male reproductive system. Most prostate cancers are slow growing; however, there are cases of aggressive prostat...
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...
