Help Us Improve Diagnosis of Prostate Cancer!

Prostate biopsies play a crucial role in deciding whether men with elevated Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) have cancer and whether treatment is needed. Not all forms of prostate cancer require treatment, only those that are worrisome and thus clinically significant. Standard prostate biopsy can miss the most aggressive areas...

A Study of Rucaparib Versus Physician's Choice of Therapy in Patients With Metastatic Castration-resistant Prostate Cancer and Homologous Recombination Gene Deficiency

The purpose of this study is to determine how patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer, and evidence of a homologous recombination gene deficiency, respond to treatment with rucaparib versus treatment with physician's choice of abiraterone acetate, enzalutamide, or docetaxel.

Therapeutic Effect of Cytoreductive Radical Prostatectomy in Men With Newly Diagnosed Metastatic Prostate Cancer

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To assess the clinical benefit of combining radical surgery ? cytoreductive radical prostatectomy (CRP) - with the best systemic therapy (BST) in men with newly diagnosed clinical metastatic prostate cancer (mPCa). SECONDARY OBJECTIVES: I. To determine the impact of CRP+BST on time to biochemical progression, cancer-specific survival,...

Study of GNX102 in Patients With Advanced Solid Tumors

GNX102 is a humanized monoclonal antibody (mAb) developed by GlycoNex. GNX102 binds with high affinity to branched Lewis B/Lewis Y (LeB/LeY) glycans, which are novel glycans caused by glycosylation changes in tumors. The monomeric LeB and LeY are blood group related antigens, commonly present in healthy adult tissues at low...

A Study of Apalutamide in Participants With High-Risk, Localized or Locally Advanced Prostate Cancer Who Are Candidates for Radical Prostatectomy

High-risk prostate cancer accounts for approximately 15 percent (%) of newly diagnosed prostate cancers. A systemic therapy that eradicates micrometastatic disease is needed to improve survival in high-risk participants undergoing RP with pLND.
