High-Dose Multivitamins Compared to a Placebo in Preventing the Recurrence of Cancer in Patients With Early Stage Bladder Cancer

2014-08-27 03:58:38 | BioPortfolio

Summary

RATIONALE: Chemoprevention therapy is the use of certain drugs to try to prevent the development or recurrence of cancer. The use of high-dose multivitamins may be an effective way to prevent the recurrence of early stage bladder cancer. It is not yet known whether high-dose vitamins are more effective than no further therapy in decreasing the risk of early-stage bladder cancer.

PURPOSE: Randomized double-blinded phase III trial to compare the effectiveness of high-dose multivitamins with a placebo in preventing the recurrence of cancer in patients with early stage bladder cancer.

Description

OBJECTIVES: I. Determine whether high dose multivitamins have chemopreventive efficacy beyond standard therapy in reducing the risk of recurrence in patients with resected stage 0 and I (Ta, T1, and Tis) transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder.

OUTLINE: This is a randomized, double blind study. Patients are randomized to receive multivitamins or placebo orally once daily for 3 years. Patients are followed every 3 months for 2 years, then every 6 months for 1 year, and then annually thereafter.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 360 patients (180/arm) will be accrued for this study within 3 years.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Tumors or cancer of the URINARY BLADDER.

A HERNIA-like condition in which the weakened pelvic muscles cause the URINARY BLADDER to drop from its normal position. Fallen urinary bladder is more common in females with the bladder dropping into the VAGINA and less common in males with the bladder dropping into the SCROTUM.

Involuntary discharge of URINE as a result of physical activities that increase abdominal pressure on the URINARY BLADDER without detrusor contraction or overdistended bladder. The subtypes are classified by the degree of leakage, descent and opening of the bladder neck and URETHRA without bladder contraction, and sphincter deficiency.

An abnormal passage in the URINARY BLADDER or between the bladder and any surrounding organ.

Blocked urine flow through the bladder neck, the narrow internal urethral opening at the base of the URINARY BLADDER. Narrowing or strictures of the URETHRA can be congenital or acquired. It is often observed in males with enlarged PROSTATE glands.
