Focal HDR Brachytherapy Boost to Stereotactic Radiotherapy

To determine if fBT+sRT is superior to standard care in terms of urinary toxicity by having fewer patients experience a minimal important decline (MID) in urinary irritation/obstructive QoL


In this Phase IIR trial investigators primarily seek to determine if fBT boost (15Gy) to SBRT (35Gy/5) can be shown to be superior to standard care (whole-gland BT boost 15Gy to RT 37.5Gy/15) in terms of urinary toxicity by having fewer patients experience a minimal important decline (MID) in urinary irritation/obstructive QoL as measured by ePRO (EPIC-CP) at 12 and 24 months post completion of therapy.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
