CPDR Patient Education Program

Industry-Sponsored Clinical Trials and Projects

The CRC maintains a comprehensive portfolio of both investigator-initiated and industry sponsored clinical trials that cover the entire patient's "life cycle." Some of the trials, though industry sponsored, are investigator-initiated trials for which a proposal was submitted by CPDR to obtain funding. All trials and projects are carried out with full approval of the respective IRBs.

 

CPDR Open Clinical Trials


  1. ProstAtak Trial

    A randomized trial of ProstAtak in combination with standard external beam radiation therapy with or without androgen deprivation therapy is in men with intermediate to high risk localized prostate cancer. ProstAtak is an investigational product that is meant to kill tumor cells and elicit an anti-tumor vaccine effect. In a Phase II clinical trial of ProstAtak given with radiation, prostate cancer recurrence was three-fold lower than typically seen with radiation alone. The purpose of this Phase III trial is to definitively determine if ProstAtak reduces prostate cancer recurrence

     

  2. BAYER - RADIUM 223

    A phase III randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of radium-223 dichloride (radium 223 dichloride is FDA approved drug that targets prostate cancer in the bones), in combination with abiraterone acetate and prednisone/prednisolone in the treatment of asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic chemotherapy-naïve subjects with bone predominant metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer

     

  3. AMOR3-SV

    A phase 3, randomized, open-label, multi-center, controlled study of Galeterone compared to Enzalutamide in men expressing androgen receptor splice variant-7 mRNA (AR-V7) with metastatic (M1) castrate resistant prostate cancer (CRPC). Galeterone is a selective, multi-targeted, small molecule drug for the treatment of castrate resistant prostate cancer
