RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.
OBJECTIVES: I. Estimate the objective response rate of patients with hormone refractory prostate cancer treated with doxorubicin HCl liposome. II. Determine the toxic effects (including any cumulative cardiotoxicity) of this regimen in these patients. III. Assess the effect of this regimen on pain and quality of life of these patients.
OUTLINE: Patients receive doxorubicin HCl liposome IV over 45 minutes every 3 weeks. Treatment continues in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Quality of life is assessed at baseline and then every 9 weeks thereafter. Patients are followed every 3 months.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Approximately 50 evaluable patients will be accrued for this study.
Primary Purpose: Treatment

This phase I trial studies the side effects and the best dose of veliparib when given together with pegylated liposomal doxorubicin hydrochloride in treating patients with ovarian cancer, ...
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the efficacy and toxicity of fludarabine with pegylated liposomal doxorubicin versus pegylated liposomal doxorubicin alone in patients with platinum...
This study is a 2 part, 2 cohort, open-label, dose escalation/de escalation study of AMG 386 in combination with either pegylated liposomal doxorubicin or topotecan in subjects with recurr...
Pegylated Liposomal Doxorubicin as well as Carboplatin have been showed efficacy in monotherapy as in combination therapy of gynaecologic tumours. As there is no common standard in the the...
Doxorubicin (DOX) is an anthracycline widely used for the treatment of solid and hematological tumors. The aim of this study was to assess the adverse event profiles of conventional DOX and liposomal ...
Avelumab is a human anti-PD-L1 checkpoint inhibitor with clinical activity in multiple solid tumors. Here, we describe the rationale and design for JAVELIN Ovarian 200 (NCT02580058), the first randomi...
Ovarian cancer as a recurrent disease is often refractory to treatment including pegylated liposomal doxorubicin hydrochloride (Lipo-Dox). Here, GE11 peptide-modified reversibly crosslinked polymersom...
Liposomalization causes alteration of the pharmacokinetics of encapsulated drugs, and allows delivery to tumor tissues through passive targeting via an enhanced permeation and retention (EPR) effect. ...
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.
Tumors or cancer of the PROSTATE.
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...
Endocrine disorders are grouped into two categories: hormone imbalance - when a gland produces too much or too little of an endocrine hormone development of lesions (such as nodules or tumors) in the endocrine system, which may or may not affect...
