Evaluate the accuracy of HIT guided biopsies for mapping tumor foci with men undergoing prostatectomy.
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.
Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Diagnostic

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...
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...
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 ...
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...
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...
An important question revolves around when the most opportune time is to introduce recovery-optimizing behaviors for men opting for radical prostatectomy (RP) for localized prostate cancer (PCa). An e...
Distinguishing between low- and high-grade prostate cancers (PCa) is important, but biopsy may underestimate the actual grade of cancer. We have previously shown that urine/plasma-based prostate-speci...
To determine the outcomes of complete surgical resection of T4 prostate cancer (PCa) after inductive androgen deprivation treatment (ADT). An inductive ADT and subsequent radical prostatectomy (RP) is...
Cancer progresses in a stepwise fashion. Oligometastatic cancer is an intermediate stage of tumor spread between localized disease and disseminated metastases. Oligometastatic prostate cancer is defin...
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.
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...
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
