The combination of ketaconazole and hydrocortisone is commonly used for the treatment of prostate cancer. The purpose of this study is to determine if the addition of a drug called dutasteride to this approved combination will make the combination more effective in treating prostate cancer.
- Participants will be seen by the study physician every four weeks and have a short physical examination, blood tests and be asked to provide information about their condition. Every three months they will undergo a bone scan. If the CT scan that was obtained before the participant started the study shows evidence of cancer, they will be asked to repeat this test every three months.
- Ketaconazole will be taken orally three times a day on an empty stomach. Hydrocortisone will be taken orally in the morning and at night. Dutasteride will be taken orally once a day.
- Participants may remain on study drug until there is evidence of disease progression.

The purpose of this study is to determine if the drug dutasteride increases expression of genes that slow the growth of prostate cancer during treatment with intermittent androgen ablation...
Patients with diagnosis of HPIN were enrolled. Patients were randomized into two groups: dutasteride treatment group and watchful waiting strategy group. According to the study protocol th...
This is a study of men who have undergone a standard 10 or more core biopsy for detection of prostate cancer and determined to have prostate cancer Gleason score ≤ 7 (low to moderate ris...
The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of dutasteride on the inhibition of low-risk, localized prostate cancer progression in men who would otherwise receive no active therapy ...
RATIONALE: Dutasteride may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well dutasteride works in tr...
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...
Vitamin K inhibits prostate cancer cells, and an altered expression of vitamin K-dependent proteins in prostate tumors has been linked to their aggressiveness and progression. However, little is known...
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.
