Analyzing the Composition of Tears and Blood for Discovery of Novel Signatures of Aggressive Prostate Cancer

The purpose of this research study is to compare profiles in the blood and tears of patients with and without prostate cancer with the goal of developing a method of separating men with aggressive and non-aggressive disease.

Prostate Active Surveillance Study

The Prostate Active Surveillance Study (PASS) is a research study for men who have chosen active surveillance as a management plan for their prostate cancer. Active surveillance is defined as close monitoring of prostate cancer with the offer of treatment if there are changes in test results. This study seeks to discover markers that will identify cancers that are more aggressive from those tumors that grow slowly.

Molecular Studies and Clinical Correlations in Human Prostatic Disease

The purpose of this study is to collect tissue samples from normal and cancerous prostates, and blood and urine from men with prostate cancer or prostatic disease. We then store them for use by researchers who study prostate cancer and try to find better ways to prevent it and treat it. We will look for genetic changes in cancer cells and protein markers in these cells. We hope to learn more about what makes some people get prostate cancer, why some cancers are more aggressive ...

Validation of Decipher Test in African American Men With Prostate Cancer - VANDAAM

The primary purpose of this study is to determine whether a tumor test recently developed by GenomeDx Biosciences known as Decipher® can predict aggressive prostate cancer with the same accuracy in African-American men (AAM) as in non-African-American men (NAAM). The Decipher® test was developed from samples derived mainly from men of European origins and little is known about its performance in AAM. It is important to study whether this test can be used in AAM who are known ...

Atrial Substrate Modification With Aggressive Blood Pressure Lowering to Prevent AF

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a very common arrhythmia causing many symptoms resulting in numerous hospitalizations. Catheter ablation is a technique that has evolved significantly to improve symptomatic recurrences, but does not offer a 100% cure rate. We hypothesize that the use of aggressive BP lowering will reduce the rate of recurrent AF after catheter ablation for AF. We plan a randomized clinical trial of aggressive BP lowering versus standard BP control to investigate...

Race-related Alternative Splicing: Novel Targets in Prostate Cancer

Data from evaluating prostate cancer (PCa) biopsy tissue from AA and white patients has led to the discovery of alternative splicing as a novel molecular mechanism underlying more aggressive PCa in AA men. Coded archival radical prostatectomy tissue specimens and annotated clinical data, questionnaire data, and ancestral genotyping data will be obtained from the racially diverse and federally funded North Carolina-Louisiana PCa Project (NC-LA PCaP). We will use 33 tissue specim...

CombIning advaNces in imagiNg With biOmarkers for improVed Diagnosis of Aggressive prosTate cancEr

To enable the paradigm of mp-MRI before biopsy in all patients with suspected prostate cancer by better selecting patients who will benefit from diagnostic MRI and by improving the performance of the mp-MRI itself

Prostate Hypoxia - TIC

Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed form of cancer in Canadian men. In 2006, greater than 250,000 men were diagnosed with prostate cancer in the United States and Canada with more than 32,000 men dying of their disease. Using the prognostic variables of T-category, the serum prostate specific antigen (PSA), and the pathologic Gleason score (GS), men with localized prostate cancer are placed in low, intermediate and high-risk groupings. Usually this is treated with su...

Aggressive Behavior Induced by Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs) During the First Month of Treatment

SSRIs are the first line of therapy for anxiety and depressive disorders and for many other clinical diagnoses. One of the most disturbing side effects that is observed is a tendency towards aggressiveness among patients receiving medications from this group, mainly during the first month of therapy. Aggressive behavior tends to occur in some individuals but not in others. In some sub-groups of people, personality and character traits might make a person more prone to aggressi...

PSMA-based 18F-DCFPyL PET/CT and PET/MRI Pilot Studies in Prostate Cancer

The overall goal of this research is to validate and develop a non-invasive imaging biomarker of prostate cancer detection, progression, and recurrence. Development of such a biomarker may be useful to differentiate indolent from aggressive prostate cancer phenotypes allowing for selection of an appropriate risk adaptive therapy.

STHLM3 - Prostate Cancer Diagnostic Trial

STHLM3 is a paired diagnostic trial aiming to assess whether a panel of biomarkers for prostate cancer can substantially reduce the proportion of men referred to biopsy whilst maintaining sensitivity for aggressive prostate cancer

A Study of Hormonal Therapy and Apalutamide With or Without Abiraterone Acetate and Prednisone in Newly Diagnosed Prostate Cancers

The purpose of this study is to test if treatment with medications that reduce the male hormone level in the participant's body for a few months before surgery can shrink prostate cancer as much as possible, which might reduce the chances of the cancer coming back in the future. These treatments include a hormone injection given monthly or every three months and the study drugs, which include abiraterone acetate, prednisone, and apalutamide. These medications are being used in...

Palliative Radiotherapy to Dominant Symptomatic Lesion in Patients With Hormone Refractory Prostate Cancer

The aim of the present feasibility study of a new short palliative radiotherapy regime that apply to patients with metastatic hormone refractory prostate cancer (HRPC) presenting with a dominating debilitating symptom. Diffusion weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DWI) will apply to identify both the lesion and the most aggressive part of the lesion. The symptomatic lesions will be treated with a dose of 4 x 5 Gy, while for the most aggressive part of the lesion the dose will ...

Study of Bortezomib and Docetaxel for Patients With Hormone Refractory Prostate Cancer

This study is for patients who have been treated with surgical removal of the testes or hormone therapy (Lupron or Zoladex) and whose prostate cancer has worsened despite this treatment. PS 341 is a type of drug known as a “proteasome inhibitor.” By inhibiting the “proteasome” in cancer cells, PS-341 alters the way those cells divide). We hope to learn whether this combination chemotherapy decreases cancer symptoms and tests (prostate specific antigen, also cal...

Shared Decision Making in Low Risk Prostate Cancer

This study will evaluate the usefulness of an informational website designed to educate patients with prostate cancer about their options for treatment. The investigators hope that this website will assist patients with making informed decisions about their care and improving their satisfaction with the treatments they choose.

PVP Compared to TURP for the Treatment of Benign Hyperplasia of the Prostate

In patients with an enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia), is treatment using photoselective vaporization of the prostate (PVP 120 Watt) as effective and cost-effective as the standard treatment of transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP)? A higher-power (120W) laser system has recently been approved by Health Canada for the treatment of an enlarged prostate. This system, which uses laser energy to vaporize the prostate tissue, will be compared with the curren...

The IMPACT Study - Identification of Men With a Genetic Predisposition to ProstAte Cancer

The IMPACT study is an international targeted prostate screening study of men at increased prostate cancer risk due to the presence of known pathogenic mutations in BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes. There are only approximately 150 men with a known BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation in the UK. Research has shown that these men are at an increased risk of developing prostate cancer but more information is needed about the pathogenesis of prostate cancer in this defined group and the role of sc...

Early Stage Prostate Cancer Cohort

Environmental factors such as diet and cigarette smoking may play a role in predicting the progression of early stage prostate cancer to advance disease. The goal of this project is to establish an observational cohort of patients with early stage prostate cancer who elect not to undergo radical prostatectomy or radiation therapy to evaluate risk factors which predict the transformation of early stage to clinically aggressive disease.

ARN-509 and Leuprolide in Intermediate and High-risk Prostate Cancer

This is a research study to test an investigational drug (Not FDA approved), ARN-509 given in combination with Leuprolide acetate (FDA approved) in men diagnosed with high-risk prostate cancer who have already selected to have surgery to remove their prostate gland as part of their treatment plan. The main purpose of this study is to determine how tumors make androgens (male hormones), which makes these tumors more aggressive and resistant to hormonal therapy and how a short pe...

Decipher Lethal Prostate Cancer Biology - Urine Metabolomics

Through a better understanding of the biology of significant (lethal) prostate cancer, we hope to develop new markers/targets from urine metabolomics for more effective screening and prevention of significant prostate cancer. In the meantime, with these new markers we may substantially reduce overtreatment of insignificant PC.

Prolaris Enhanced Risk Stratification - an ecONomic and clinicAL Evaluation

One in 8 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during their lifetime. The majority of men diagnosed with prostate cancer have early stage disease, which can be managed in a variety of ways, ranging from monitoring to interventional treatment. However is it not always clear which treatment option is best. All men with newly diagnosed localised prostate cancer are assigned a disease risk category (low/intermediate/high risk). This is based on clinical findings and prostate ...

Comparison of HDR vs. LDR Brachytherapy as Monotherapy for Intermediate Risk Prostate Cancer

This study will offer men with intermediate risk prostate cancer who are suitable for, and interested in, prostate brachytherapy, the opportunity to be randomized between low dose rate (LDR) brachytherapy using permanent implantation of radioactive seeds (the current standard of care in BC) and high dose rate (HDR) or temporary brachytherapy which is also available as a standard of care in BC but only when used as a boost in addition with external beam radiotherapy. In addition...

Targeted Radiotherapy in Androgen-suppressed Prostate Cancer Patients.

This multi-center, phase II trial will be conducted in men with castration resistant prostate cancer. The aim of the TRAP trial is to test whether a new precise radiotherapy technique called stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) can slow down the growth of metastatic prostate cancer. If SBRT is effective it will represent a new treatment option in these patients, providing more prolonged control without having to resort to chemotherapy and its potentially unpleasant side effect...

Evaluation of the Metastasis and Recurrence of Prostate Cancer

This study aims to use the new molecular probe 18F-PSMA for the diagnosis,staging ,recurrence monitoring and evaluation of the prostate cancer.By compared with the conventional imaging methods (whole body bone scintigraphy and MRI) and molecular imaging methods (11C-choline PET/CT),we hope to find the advantages of 18F-PSMA PET/CT in the diagnosis and metastases of prostate cancer, and lay the foundation for the further clinical transformation.

MRI Versus PSA in Prostate Cancer Screening

In this open randomized controlled trial, we seek to study whether prostate cancer screening using multiparametric prostate magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI) improves the detection rate of clinically-significant prostate cancer (defined as Gleason score ≥7 on prostate biopsy) compared with prostate cancer screening using prostate-specific antigen (PSA). The current paradigm of prostate cancer screening relies upon an initial PSA blood test, with subsequent investigations dr...
