Everolimus as First-Line Therapy in Treating Patients With Prostate Cancer

2014-08-27 03:19:23 | BioPortfolio

Summary

RATIONALE: Everolimus may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth and by blocking blood flow to the tumor.

PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying the side effects of everolimus and to see how well it works as first-line therapy in treating patients with prostate cancer.

Description

OBJECTIVES:

Primary

- Determine the progression-free survival at 12 weeks of patients with non-rapidly progressive castration-resistant prostate cancer treated with everolimus as first-line therapy.

- Assess the activity and safety of this regimen in these patients.

Secondary

- Determine the progression-free survival at 24 weeks of patients treated with this regimen.

- Determine the percentage of PSA response from baseline to 12 weeks in patients treated with this regimen.

- Determine the changes in PSA-doubling time in patients treated with this regimen.

- Determine the overall survival of patients treated with this regimen.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.

Patients receive oral everolimus once daily on days 1-28. Treatment repeats every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study therapy, patients are followed up at 28 days and then every 3 months.
