Clinical Trials

A clinical research study for men who have metastatic, hormone-sensitive prostate cancer is now enrolling. Janssen Research & Development is seeking men to participate in a clinical trial of an oral investigational drug for prostate cancer. This study is enrolling men who are either surgically castrated or taking Androgen Deprivation Therapy (ADT). The selections will be random, and the investigational medication will be given to 1 out of every 2 study participants.

A clinical research study is now enrolling for men who have high-risk, localized or locally advanced prostate cancer and are receiving radiation therapy. Janssen Research & Development is seeking men to participate in a clinical trial of an investigational drug for prostate cancer. The selections will be random, and the investigational medication will be given to 1 out of every 2 study participants.

A clinicial research study for patients with asymptomatica/mildly symptomatic castration resistant prostate cancer and two or more bone metastases.  Bayer HealthCare is seeking men to participate in a research study of radium-223.  The purpose of the ERA 223 trial is to determine if the addition of radium-223 to abiraterone acetate is able to prolong life and to delay events specific for prostate cancer which has spread to the bone, such as bone fractures or bone pain which needs to be treated with an X-Ray machine.  This study is enrolling pateints with prostate cancer who, despite medical or surgical castration, have rising prostate specific antigen (PSA) levels. Eligible patients must have two or more bone metastases with no visceral, e.g. liver metastases and not have received prior chemotherapy.  Prostate cancer lesions must be asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic.  All patients will receive abiraterone acetate along with either radium-223 or placebo.

A clinical study for men whose PSA is rising, despite having ongoing treatment for prostate cancer and whose cancer has not spread beyond the prostate. The purpose of this study is for doctors and researchers to evaluate the investigational medication ODM-201. They want to compare the safety and effectiveness of ODM-201 with that of placebo, which looks like ODM-201, but contains no active ingredients. The results of this study will provide more information about ODM-201 and whether it could one day be used to potentially treat men with prostate cancer that is at risk of progressing, but has not already spread to other areas of the body.

Prostate cancer is a disease that is most successfully treated when it is detected early on.  As the research community explores various methods to detecting the disease, PCEC continues to encourage men to play an active role in their health by looking to those trusted sources of prostate cancer testing – the PSA and DRE.
