Study Using WST11 in Patients With Localized Prostate Cancer

2014-08-27 03:19:24 | BioPortfolio


The aim of this trial is to determine the optimal treatment conditions to achieve prostate cancer tumour ablation and to assess the effects of WST11-mediated Vascular-Targeted Photodynamic therapy (VTP) treatment in patients with localized prostate cancer.

The secondary objectives is to assess the safety and quality of life following WST11-mediated VTP treatment,to assess the effects,safety and quality of life following a second WST11-mediated VTP treatment.


This trial is designed as a multicentre, phase II, open-labeled, multi-arm, single intravenous (IV) dose study. The patient is to receive general anesthesia. WST11-mediated VTP will consist of the combination of a single IV administration of WST11 at doses of 4 or 6 mg/kg using 753nm laser light at a fixed power (150 mW/cm or 200 mW/cm or 250 mW/cm ) and light energy (200 J/cm or 300J/cm) delivered through transperineal interstitial optical fibers. The fibers are introduced into transparent needles that are positioned in the prostate under ultra sound guidance. The tumour location is established using transrectal biopsy and MR imaging. The number of fibers and the total light energy will be adapted to each patient based on a treatment planning proposed by treatment planning group.

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.

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.

The phosphoprotein encoded by the BRCA1 gene (GENE, BRCA1). In normal cells the BRCA1 protein is localized in the nucleus, whereas in the majority of breast cancer cell lines and in malignant pleural effusions from breast cancer patients, it is localized mainly in the cytoplasm.
