RATIONALE: Radiolabeled monoclonal antibodies can locate tumor cells and either kill them or deliver tumor-killing substances to them without harming normal cells. This may be an effective treatment for prostate cancer.
PURPOSE: Randomized phase III trial to compare the effectiveness of strontium or radiation therapy in treating patients with prostate cancer that is refractory to hormone therapy who have painful bone metastases.
OBJECTIVES: I. Compare, in a randomized Phase III setting, the subjective response rate, time to progression, and survival of patients with hormone-refractory prostate cancer with painful osseous metastases treated with either strontium-89 or palliative local radiotherapy. II. Compare the quality of life achieved on these two regimens. III. Determine the toxicity and morbidity of treatment on these two regimens. IV. Compare the cost effectiveness of these two regimens.
OUTLINE: Randomized study. Arm I: Radioisotope therapy. Strontium-89 chloride, Strontium-89. Arm II: Radiotherapy. Involved-field irradiation (equipment unspecified).
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: 200 patients will be entered over 2 years.
Primary Purpose: Treatment

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as docetaxel and prednisolone, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from di...
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Radioactive substances such as strontium-89 may relieve bone pain as...
RATIONALE: Androgens can stimulate the growth of prostate cancer cells. Drugs such as goserelin and leuprolide may fight prostate cancer by stopping the adrenal glands from producing andro...
Zoledronate, Vitamin D, and Calcium With or Without Strontium 89 or Samarium 153 in Preventing or Delaying Bone Problems in Patients With Bone Metastases From Prostate Cancer, Lung Cancer, or Breast Cancer
RATIONALE: Zoledronate, vitamin D and calcium may prevent or delay bone pain and other symptoms caused by bone metastases. It is not yet known whether giving zoledronate together with vita...
No clinical trials have evaluated strontium L-lactate (SrLac), the strontium salt of the L-enantiomer of lactic acid. Therefore, this clinical study was conducted to obtain general safety ...
Colorectal carcinoma is the third most common cancer worldwide. Approximately 20% of patients with colorectal cancer will have metastatic disease at the time of initial diagnosis, and approximately 30...
Population-based estimates of racial disparities in metastatic breast cancer are lacking. We quantified the contributions of demographic, socioeconomic, tumor, and metastatic characteristics to racial...
The prevalence of patients living with prolonged interval between initial breast cancer diagnosis and development of subsequent metastatic disease may be increasing with improved treatment. In order t...
Inhibition of metastatic cancer cell colonization and outgrowth is arguably one of the greatest therapeutic challenges. Reporting in Cancer Discovery, Liu et al. (2018) describe how homophilic intera...
Parents with cancer have unique and often under-recognized psychological distress about the impact of their illness on their children. Relatively little is known about how parenting concerns may diffe...
Stable strontium atoms that have the same atomic number as the element strontium, but differ in the atomic weight. Sr-84, 86, 87, and 88 are the stable strontium isotopes.
Unstable isotopes of strontium that decay or disintegrate spontaneously emitting radiation. Sr 80-83, 85, and 89-95 are radioactive strontium isotopes.
Metastatic breast cancer characterized by EDEMA and ERYTHEMA of the affected breast due to LYMPHATIC METASTASIS and eventual obstruction of LYMPHATIC VESSELS by the cancer cells.
Mucocellular carcinoma of the ovary, usually metastatic from the gastrointestinal tract, characterized by areas of mucoid degeneration and the presence of signet-ring-like cells. It accounts for 30%-40% of metastatic cancers to the ovaries and possibly 1%-2% of all malignant ovarian tumors. The lesions may not be discovered until the primary disease is advanced, and most patients die of their disease within a year. In some cases, a primary tumor is not found.
