This study is for patients who are 18 years and older that have been diagnosed with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC).The investigational drugs in this study are Nivolumab and Ipilimumab.The purpose of this research study is to test the effectiveness (how well the drug works), safety, and tolerability of different dosing regimens containing nivolumab plus ipilimumab, ipilimumab alone, or cabazitaxel plus prednisone or prednisolone in participants with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC).Duration of this study will take approximately 24 months.
This is a phase II study that will look at the safety and effectiveness of the investigational drug opaganib in participants with metastatic prostate cancer. The study drug, opaganib has been studied in a clinical trial to find a safe dose level. The results of this clinical trial and other lab studies have indicated that opaganib may be effective at slowing tumor growth. Patients will be eligible to participate in this study if they have prostate cancer that has progressed (gotten worse) on their current therapy of either abiraterone or enzalutamide. Participants will received either 250mg or 500mg of opaganib by mouth twice a day. Patients will continue on study drug until the development of progressive disease, intolerable toxicity, withdrawal of patient consent or other event as outlined in patient discontinuation.
This study is for patients that have been diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer with bone metastases.The purpose of this research study is to compare any good and bad effects of using radium-223 along with docetaxel chemotherapy treatment versus using docetaxel alone. The addition of radium-223 to docetaxel could have an overall survival benefit, but it could also cause side effects. The study drugs, radium-223 and docetaxel, are considered experimental drugs that are being evaluated together as a combination therapy for participants with certain solid tumors (cancer). Patients will be seen at MUSC for about 8 months. After they finish the treatment, the doctor will continue to watch the patient for side effects and follow their condition for the rest of their life, or for as long as they wish to remain on the study.
This study is for patients with metastatic prostate cancer receiving radium-223 as their standard of care therapy. The researchers will collect blood and urine samples from patients before, during and after the radium-223 therapy. The researchers will compare these samples to observe how the treatment has affected different cancer markers.
The overall goal of this study is to identify a safe dose of the metabolic supplement, Chitosan that can help reduce AGE (advanced glycation endproducts) levels in patients with prostate cancer. Chitosan is a naturally occurring substance found in shellfish. This study will be using Chitosan prepared from the shells of cold-water shrimp. Chitosan is approved by the FDA for use in wound dressings and has been used in published clinical trials for weight loss but is not approved for the purposes of this study. AGEs are a type of metabolite, or substance, found in food and produced in the body. The researchers helping conduct this study have found a potential link between AGE levels and cancer. Participation in this study will require three study visits over the course of about 3 months. During these visits subjects will be asked to provide blood and stool samples as well as complete surveys about their quality of life.
The purpose of this study is to identify a safe pharmaceutical agent that can reduce the AGE levels in subjects with advanced cancer. The term "AGE" (advanced glycation endpoints) refers to sugar-derived metabolites that are linked to lifestyle choices and can contribute to cancer.
This study is for patients that have prostate cancer that has spread and are either beginning hormone therapy for the first time or have been on hormone therapy for less than 30 days. The purpose of this study is to find out what effects (good and/or bad) there are to adding the new investigational drug TAK-700 (also called orteronel) to standard hormone therapy which is used to treat prostate cancer as compared to the standard of hormone therapy alone. The combination of TAK-700 and standard hormone therapy is considered experimental.
