RATIONALE: Efavirenz may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.
- To assess the effect of efavirenz on the non-PSA progression rate at 3 months in patients with castration-refractory metastatic prostate cancer.
- To assess the effect of efavirenz on the PSA response at 3 months.
- To assess the effect of efavirenz on overall survival.
- To assess the effect of efavirenz on PSA progression-free survival.
- To assess the effect of efavirenz on symptomatic progression-free survival.
- To assess the tolerability and safety profile of efavirenz.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Patients receive oral efavirenz once daily in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Efavirenz causes neuropsychiatric side effects and sleep disturbance, including vivid dreams, dizziness, and abnormal tiredness. These symptoms are frequent during the first weeks of trea...
The aim of this trial is to study the efavirenz-rifabutin interaction. Thus, this trial will enroll patients with HIV and tuberculosis co-infections who are receiving a rifabutin-based re...
RATIONALE: Vitamin E supplements may stop or delay the development of prostate cancer in patients who are at risk of prostate cancer or who have prostate cancer. It is not yet known which ...
Tenofovir+lamivudine+efavirenz is still the first line regimen of combination antiretroviral therapy in developing countries. Based on our previous data, we aim to evaluate whether reduce ...
To characterize the risks (safety and tolerability), effectiveness (continued viral load suppression and CD4 changes), and benefits (safety, tolerability, adherence, general satisfaction w...
Prostate Cancer is the forth most common type of cancer. Prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) is anchored in the cell membrane of prostate epithelial cells. PSMA is highly expressed on prostate e...
The role of testosterone in the development of prostate cancer and the safety of testosterone therapy (TTh) after prostate cancer treatment, or in the setting of active surveillance, remains controver...
Prostate cancer is one of the most commonly diagnosed malignancies among men in Western populations. Evidence reported in the literature suggests that zinc may be related to prostate cancer. In this s...
The current praxis of diagnosing prostate cancer, with systematic prostate biopsies in men with raised serum prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels, leads to considerable over-diagnosis and over-treat...
Cannabinoids have demonstrated anticarcinogenic properties in a variety of malignancies, including in prostate cancer. In the present study, we explored the anti-cancer effects of the synthetic cannab...
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.
Tumors or cancer of the PROSTATE.
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...
