RATIONALE: Monoclonal antibodies can locate tumor cells and either kill them or deliver tumor-killing substances to them without harming normal cells.
OBJECTIVES: I. Assess the activity of trastuzumab (Herceptin) in patients with progressive androgen dependent and independent prostate cancer. II. Study HER2 status by immunohistochemistry on prostate cancer biopsy samples. III. Study associations between HER2 protein expression on tumor cells and post-therapy changes in PSA in this patient population.
OUTLINE: Patients receive trastuzumab IV over 30 or 90 minutes once a week. Treatment continues for a maximum of 24 weeks in the absence of unacceptable toxicity or disease progression. Patients are followed for time to progression.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 14-25 patients will be accrued for this study within 6-9 months.
Primary Purpose: Treatment

Trastuzumab and Trastuzumab-MCC-DM1 Administered Intravenously and GDC-0941 Administered Orally to Patients With HER2-Positive Metastatic Breast Cancer Who Have Progressed on Previous Trastuzumab-Based Therapy
This multicenter, Phase Ib study is an open label, dose escalation, three-arm study evaluating the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, and activity of oral (PO) GDC 0941 administered i...
The purpose of the study is to find out if trastuzumab alone or trastuzumab in combination with everolimus is effective in metastatic breast cancers that are no longer controlled by hormon...
Trastuzumab is approved for the treatment of HER2-positive breast cancer and gastric cancer. The recent study showed that HER2 overexpression or amplification is noted about 5-15% of total...
This study evaluated the long-term safety of treatment with trastuzumab in participants with metastatic or locally advanced cancer with human epidermal growth factor 2 (HER2) overexpressio...
The role of testosterone in the development of prostate cancer and the safety of testosterone therapy (TTh) after prostate cancer treatment, or in the setting of active surveillance, remains controver...
Vitamin K inhibits prostate cancer cells, and an altered expression of vitamin K-dependent proteins in prostate tumors has been linked to their aggressiveness and progression. However, little is known...
Prostate cancer is one of the most commonly diagnosed malignancies among men in Western populations. Evidence reported in the literature suggests that zinc may be related to prostate cancer. In this s...
The current praxis of diagnosing prostate cancer, with systematic prostate biopsies in men with raised serum prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels, leads to considerable over-diagnosis and over-treat...
Trastuzumab is a monoclonal antibody against HER2-positive breast cancer. Despite improving the natural history of the disease, there is a number of patients who are resistant to it, whereas all patie...
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 humanized monoclonal antibody against the ERBB-2 RECEPTOR (HER2). As an ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT, it is used to treat BREAST CANCER where HER2 is overexpressed.
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.
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...
