Guided Biopsy for Mapping Prostate Cancer

2014-08-27 03:18:14 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Evaluate the accuracy of HIT guided biopsies for mapping tumor foci with men undergoing prostatectomy.

Description

The objective of this study is to determine the accuracy of HIT (Hybrid Imaging Technology) guided biopsies for mapping tumor foci with men undergoing prostatectomy. Using a prostate hybrid imaging technology (HIT) which fuses a previously obtained endorectal MR image to transurethral ultrasound (TRUS) image to allow identification and biopsy of tumors by MR imaging in real time. We hypothesis that HIT guided biopsies will accurately localize the foci of prostate cancer.

Hormonal Therapy and Chemotherapy Followed by Prostatectomy in Patients With Prostate Cancer

This is a study for men who have locally-advanced prostate cancer and are eligible to undergo prostatectomy. Standard treatment is prostatectomy alone, but there is a chance that cancer m...

The goal of this clinical research study is to learn about the safety and tolerability of giving Darzalex (daratumumab) to patients who have prostate cancer before having an already-schedu...

Cytoreductive Prostatectomy in Treating Patients With Newly Diagnosed, Metastatic Prostate Cancer

This phase I trial studies the side effects of cytoreductive prostatectomy in treating patients with newly diagnosed prostate cancer that has spread from the primary site to other places i...

Radiation Therapy After Prostatectomy in Treating Patients With Stage III Prostate Cancer

RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to damage tumor cells and may be an effective treatment for prostate cancer. PURPOSE: Randomized phase III trial to compare treatment ...

Beta Adrenergic Receptor Blockade as a Novel Therapy for Patients With Adenocarcinoma of the Prostate

This will be a single arm, window of opportunity study in men with treatment-naïve prostate cancer who will proceed to prostatectomy. Men will be treated with carvedilol prior to undergoi...

Prostatectomy versus radiotherapy for early-stage prostate cancer (PREPaRE) study: protocol for a mixed-methods study of treatment decision-making in men with localised prostate cancer.

Men diagnosed with localised prostate cancer (LPC) wanting curative treatment face a highly preference-sensitive choice between prostatectomy and radiotherapy, which offer similar cure rates but diffe...

The Influence of Ethnic Heterogeneity on Prostate Cancer Mortality after Radical Prostatectomy in Hispanic/Latino Men: A Population-Based Analysis.

To determine if recently found disparities in prostate cancer-specific mortality among Mexican and Puerto Rican men remained true in patients undergoing radical prostatectomy; where the true grade and...

Ex vivo metabolic fingerprinting identifies biomarkers predictive of prostate cancer recurrence following radical prostatectomy.

Robust biomarkers that identify prostate cancer patients with high risk of recurrence will improve personalised cancer care. In this study, we investigated whether tissue metabolites detectable by hig...

Survival Outcomes of Radical Prostatectomy Versus Radiotherapy in Intermediate-Risk Prostate Cancer: A NCDB Study.

Studies of various prostate cancer patient cohorts found men receiving external-beam radiotherapy (EBRT) had higher mortality than men undergoing radical prostatectomy (RP). Conversely, a recent clini...

Validation of GEMCaP as a DNA based biomarker to predict prostate cancer recurrence after radical prostatectomy.

We aim to validate the Genomic Evaluators of Metastatic Cancer of the Prostate (GEMCaP) as a novel copy number signature predictive for prostate cancer recurrence.

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.

Complete or partial surgical removal of the prostate. Three primary approaches are commonly employed: suprapubic - removal through an incision above the pubis and through the urinary bladder; retropubic - as for suprapubic but without entering the urinary bladder; and transurethral (TRANSURETHRAL RESECTION OF PROSTATE).

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.
