The primary purpose of this study is to (1) determine the maximally tolerated dose (MTD) of L-377202 administered once every 3 weeks, (2) evaluate the safety and tolerability of L-377202 including the dose-limiting adverse effects of treatment with L-377202, and (3) assess the pharmacokinetics of various doses of L-377202 and the plasma profile of liberated doxorubicin and leu-doxorubicin.
This is an open, nonrandomized, rising-dose study in patients with hormone refractory prostate cancer. Patients will be treated with L-377202 once every three weeks. Plasma concentrations of L-377202, liberated doxorubicin, and leu-doxorubicin will be obtained at defined time intervals throughout the study. At least 1 patient will be treated at each dose level until there is evidence of greater than or equal to Grade 2 drug-related toxicity. Each patient will be treated at only 1 dose level, although multiple cycles may be administered until signs of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity are evident. Doses will be doubled for each subsequent cohort of patients until evidence of greater than or equal to Grade 2 drug-related toxicity. Upon documentation of greater than or equal to Grade 2 drug-related toxicity, subsequent dose escalations will proceed along the modified Fibonacci scale and enroll at least 3 patients per dose level until 1 patient experiences dose-limiting toxicity (DLT).

The purpose of this study is to determine whether imaging with 18F-choline PET/CT can provide information that may help guide subsequent investigational or clinical treatments for patients...
This is an open-label, multicenter Phase I/II study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of single-agent AT-101 in men with hormone-refractory prostate cancer.
The primary objective is to determine the efficacy of docetaxel plus carboplatin as first line treatment in patients with hormone refractory prostate cancer.
The purpose of this study is to determine the biochemical response rate (PSA) to single agent RAD001 in patients with metastatic hormone-refractory prostate cancer.
This investigational study involves treatment with an Ad/PSA vaccine for men with prostate cancer who present with evidence of hormone refractory metastatic disease.
Regulation of prostate cancer by androgen and androgen receptor (AR), and blockade of AR signaling by AR antagonists and steroidogenic enzyme inhibitors have been extensively studied. G protein-couple...
Acquired docetaxel (Doc) resistance in hormone-refractory prostate cancer (HRPC) remains an ongoing clinical challenge, resulting in failed chemotherapy and tumor recurrence. However, the mechanism of...
Radium-223 (Ra) chloride, an alpha emitter, has been shown to improve overall survival (OS) and pain control, and to delay skeletal-related events, in patients with castration-resistant prostate cance...
Using multiple parallel sequencing on Illumina platform, we identified eight microRNAs that showed significant opposite changes of gene expression in cells of the hormone-sensitive LNCaP prostate canc...
To review comparative studies of the gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonists goserelin, triptorelin, and leuprorelin for the treatment of prostate cancer, and identify whether there are meaning...
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 long-acting agonist of GONADOTROPIN-RELEASING HORMONE. Goserelin is used in treatments of malignant NEOPLASMS of the prostate, uterine fibromas, and metastatic breast cancer.
Antineoplastic agents that are used to treat hormone-sensitive tumors. Hormone-sensitive tumors may be hormone-dependent, hormone-responsive, or both. A hormone-dependent tumor regresses on removal of the hormonal stimulus, by surgery or pharmacological block. Hormone-responsive tumors may regress when pharmacologic amounts of hormones are administered regardless of whether previous signs of hormone sensitivity were observed. The major hormone-responsive cancers include carcinomas of the breast, prostate, and endometrium; lymphomas; and certain leukemias. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual 1994, p2079)
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).
