RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different way to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.
OBJECTIVES: I. Evaluate the clinical effectiveness of oral perillyl alcohol given to patients with androgen independent metastatic prostate cancer. II. Assess the toxicity of this treatment in these patients.
OUTLINE: Patients receive oral perillyl alcohol 4 times a day for 4 weeks. Patients continue treatment in the absence of severe toxicity and disease progression. Patients are followed every 3 months for survival after disease progression.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: This study will accrue 20-40 patients in approximately 2 years.
Primary Purpose: Treatment
