NCI/CTEP 9012: A Randomized Gene Fusion Stratified Phase 2 Trial of Abiraterone with or without ABT-888 for Patients with Metastatic Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer

Primary Objectives: (1) To evaluate the role of ETS gene fusion as a predictive biomarker for response to hormone therapy (abiraterone) alone or hormone therapy plus PARP-1 targeted therapy (ABT-888) in patients with metastatic castration resistant prostate cancer. (2) To evaluate whether the addition of PARP-1 targeted therapy is superior to hormone therapy alone based on ETS gene fusion status.
Secondary objectives: (1) Rate of PSA declines. (2) Objective response rate. (3) Progression-free survival. (4) Evaluate the qualitative and quantitative toxicity of abiraterone acetate with and without ABT-888.


A Phase II, Randomized, Three-Arm Study of Abiraterone Acetate Alone, Abiraterone Acetate Plus Degarelix, a GnRH Antagonist, and Degarelix Alone for Patients with Prostate Cancer with a Rising PSA and Nodal Disease Following Definitive Radical Prostatectomy

The primary endpoint for each cohort is progression-free survival (PFS) at 18 months from the start of randomization (PSA0). PFS is defined as an undetectable (less than or equal to 0.05 ng/mL) PSA with a non-castrate level of testosterone (greater than 150 ng/dL). Pathological lymph nodes (whether target or non-target) must also have reduction in short axis to less than 10mm (Compelte Response per RECIST) in order to meet the criteria for PFS.
Secondary endpoints: (1) PSA response rate (Percentage of patients with an undetectable PSA at 8 months from PSA0). (2) Effects of each arm on overall quality of life, with particular attention to libido, potency, anxiety, depression, hot flashes and fatigue. (3) Frequency and intensity of non-hematologic adverse events. (4) Testosterone and leuteinizing hormone (LH) recovery rates.
Tertiary endpoint: Correlative tissue analysis with clinical outcomes while on study treatment.

A phase II study of ABT-263/Abiraterone (Arm A) or ABT-263/Abiraterone and Hydroxychloroquine (Arm B) in Patients with Metastatic Castrate Refractory Prostate Cancer (CRPC) and Progression following Abiraterone

ABT-263 with or without hydroxychloroquine will target mechanisms
of resistance to full androgen ablation and restore sensitivity to full androgen ablation therapy. NOTE: although this study is randomized to two arms after a lead in period, the study design will independently, and efficiently, test for activity of ABT-263 with full androgen ablation (with abiraterone) and ABT-263 combined with hydroxychloroquine and full androgen ablation (with abiraterone). As a drug development plan, if one or both arms demonstrate restored activity of abiraterone, these data will definitely support future studies that could be powered to compare regimens and/or assess survival to prove effectiveness in a growing population of patients because of the abundant use of androgen axis targeting agents such as abiraterone.

Intimacy-Enhancing Couples' Intervention for Localized Prostate Cancer

The proposed study has two primary aims.
Aim 1: To evaluate the impact of an Intimacy-Enhancing Couples' intervention (IEC) versus a General Health and Wellness Intervention (GHW) and a Usual care control (UC) on patient and partner psychological and relationship outcomes.
Aim 1a.: To determine whether relationship length, pre-intervention relationship satisfaction, and men's pre-intervention masculinity moderate the effects of IEC on couples' psychological and relationship outcomes.
Aim 2: To evaluate whether IEC has an effect on couples' communication and intimacy when compared with GHW and UC and to determine whether changes in relationship communication and intimacy mediate changes in couples' psychological and relationship outcomes.


Randomized Controlled Trial (RCT) of an Online Multimedia Program to Boost Coping & Function for Prostate Cancer Survivors. A Study of The Cancer Institute of New Jersey Oncology Group (CINJOG)

We propose to develop and evaluate a comprehensive and innovative multimedia program designed to facilitate the post-treatment transition into survivorship. The design of the proposed intervention, the Virtual Survivorship Resource Center for Prostate Cancer (VSRC-PC), will be theoretically based on the team's Cognitive-Social Health Information Processing Model. The VSRC-PC will focus on promoting adaptive coping within four key post-treatment domains: 1) Physical Dysfunction (e.g., physical symptoms); 2) Emotional Well- Being (e.g., fear of recurrence); 3) Interpersonal Concerns (e.g., sexual intimacy issues); and 4) Practical Barriers (e.g., medical follow-up challenges). The proposed research will be the first RCT to evaluate not only a comprehensive but also highly disseminable and self-sustaining intervention for facilitating post-treatment adaptation among early-stage Pca survivors. The proposed research will be the first RCT to evaluate not only a comprehensive but also highly disseminable and self-sustaining intervention for facilitating post-treatment adaptation among early-stage Pca survivors.


The risk profile and cost analysis of high risk localized prostate cancer patients

The objective of this study is to describe risk profiles and cost patterns of high risk localized prostate cancer patients in the U.S. Specifically, it analyzes the clinical outcomes such as overall mortality, and how baseline risk factors such as age at diagnosis, race, cancer grade, clinical stage and treatment modality predict clinical outcomes. Patient costs at different stages will be analyzed. It delineates clinical and economic outcomes of current management of high risk localized prostate cancer in the U.S.
