This is a pilot phase 2 single-arm study, of men with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC). Patients will be treated with abiraterone acetate 1000 mg daily plus prednisone 5 mg (or dexamethasone 0.5 mg) daily for mCRPC.
Prostate cancer is a hormonally-driven disease and androgens are key in the growth of both normal prostate and prostate cancer cells. Once mCRPC is evident, most patients receive a second-generation hormonal therapy to further suppress the synthesis or androgens (abiraterone) and to block androgen receptor (AR) activation, nuclear translocation and DNA binding (enzalutamide).
Conventional imaging of prostate cancer has limitations in staging, restaging after biochemical relapse, and response assessment. Functional imaging with positron emission tomography (PET) can target various aspects of tumor biology and is clearly superior in the detection of extra-prostatic disease. 18F-fluciclovine is a synthetic amino acid transported across mammalian cell membranes by amino acid transporters that are upregulated in prostate cancer cells.
18F-fluciclovine is approved for PET imaging to identify sites of prostate cancer recurrence in men with rising prostate specific antigen (PSA) following prior definitive treatment. This study describes the changes in 18F-fluciclovine PET scan and compare these results with PSA and conventional computerized tomography (CT) and bone scans, in mCRPC patients treated with abiraterone acetate-prednisone.

Prostate cancer (cancer de prostata) Prostate cancer (cancer de prostata) is a form of cancer that develops in the prostate, a gland in the male reproductive system. Most prostate cancers are slow growing; however, there are cases of aggressive prostat...
Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)
An enlarged prostate (benign prostatic enlargement (BPE) or benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH)) is common in men after the age of about 50. Having an enlarged prostate does not mean you have cancer. In some cases, an enlarged prostate can cause the ...
