Docetaxel, Estramustine, and Thalidomide in Treating Patients With Prostate Cancer Previously Treated With Hormone Therapy

2014-08-27 03:55:46 | BioPortfolio

Summary

RATIONALE: Thalidomide may stop the growth of prostate cancer by stopping blood flow to the tumor. Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining chemotherapy with thalidomide may kill more tumor cells.

PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of combining docetaxel and estramustine with thalidomide in treating patients who have prostate cancer previously treated with hormone therapy.

Description

OBJECTIVES:

- Determine the objective response rate in patients with hormone-refractory prostate cancer treated with docetaxel, estramustine, and thalidomide.

- Determine the safety and toxicity of this regimen in these patients.

- Determine the efficacy of this regimen for pain control in these patients.

OUTLINE: Patients receive oral estramustine on days 1-3 and docetaxel IV over 1 hour on day 2 for 3 weeks. Treatment repeats every 4 weeks for at least 6 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Patients also receive oral thalidomide once daily beginning on day 1 and continuing for 1 year in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Patients are followed monthly until disease progression.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 25 patients will be accrued for this study within 1 year.

Docetaxel, Estramustine, and Thalidomide in Treating Patients With Androgen-Independent Metastatic Adenocarcinoma of the Prostate

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as docetaxel and estramustine, work in different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Thalidomide may stop the gr...

Study of Paclitaxel, Estramustine Phosphate and Thalidomide for Patients With Metastatic Androgen-Independent Prostate Carcinoma

The three study drugs (Thalidomide, Taxol, and Estramustine) used in this study are all chemotherapy drugs used in shrinking the cancer.

Estramustine, Docetaxel, and Carboplatin in Treating Patients With Prostate Cancer That Has Not Responded to Hormone Therapy

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining more than one drug may kill more tumor cells. PURPOSE: Ph...

Docetaxel, Estramustine, and Exisulind in Treating Patients With Metastatic Prostate Cancer That Has Not Responded to Hormone Therapy

RATIONALE: Androgens can stimulate the growth of prostate cancer cells. Estramustine may fight prostate cancer by reducing the production of androgens. Exisulind may stop the growth of pro...

Isotretinoin, Interferon Alfa-2b, Docetaxel, and Estramustine in Treating Patients With Metastatic Prostate Cancer That Did Not Respond to Hormone Therapy

RATIONALE: Isotretinoin may help prostate cancer cells become more like normal cells, and to grow and spread more slowly. Interferon alfa-2b may interfere with the growth of tumor cells. D...

The efficacy and safety comparison of docetaxel, cabazitaxel, estramustine, and mitoxantrone for castration-resistant prostate cancer: A network meta-analysis.

The aim of this study was to compare the efficacy and safety of docetaxel, cabazitaxel, docetaxel + estramustine, mitoxantrone in the management of castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC).

Cdc20/p55 mediates the resistance to docetaxel in castration-resistant prostate cancer in a Bim-dependent manner.

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...

Prazosin but Not Tamsulosin Sensitises PC-3 and LNCaP Prostate Cancer Cells to Docetaxel.

Docetaxel is currently the first-line chemotherapeutic agent available for the treatment of patients with advanced prostate cancer (PCa). While docetaxel has been shown to modestly improve survival ti...

Evaluation of the anticancer and anti-metastasis effects of novel synthetic sodium channel blockers in prostate cancer cells in vitro and in vivo.

Voltage-gated sodium channels (VGSCs) are involved in several cellular processes related to cancer cell growth and metastasis, including adhesion, proliferation, apoptosis, migration, and invasion. We...

The Role of YKL-40 in Predicting Resistance to Docetaxel Chemotherapy in Prostate Cancer.

High baseline YKL-40 serum levels are associated with drug resistance in several solid tumours. However, their role in predicting docetaxel (DOC) resistance in prostate cancer (PCa) is unknown.

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 family of highly conserved and widely expressed sodium-phosphate cotransporter proteins. They are electrogenic sodium-dependent transporters of phosphate that were originally identified as retroviral receptors in HUMANS and have been described in yeast and many other organisms.

A nitrogen mustard linked to estradiol, usually as phosphate; used to treat prostatic neoplasms; also has radiation protective properties.

A family of symporters that facilitate sodium-dependent membrane transport of phosphate.

A family of sodium-phosphate cotransporter proteins that also transport organic ANIONS. They are low affinity phosphate transporters.
