    Rochester, Minn. View Summary

    The Men s Eating and Living (MEAL) Study: A Randomized Trial of Diet to Alter Disease Progression in Prostate Cancer Patients on Active Surveillance

    Location:

    Rochester, Minn.

    Trial status:

    Open for Enrollment

    Why is this study being done?

    OBJECTIVES: Primary - To determine if a telephone-based dietary intervention compared to no intervention will decrease clinical progression in AS patients. Secondary - To compare the incidence of active treatment (surgery, irradiation, local ablation, or androgen deprivation) in AS patients receiving dietary intervention compared to no intervention. - To compare prostate cancer-related anxiety in AS patients receiving dietary intervention compared to no intervention. - To compare health-related quality of life in AS patients receiving dietary intervention compared to no intervention. OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study. Patients are stratified according to age (≤ 70 years vs > 70 years), race (African American vs other), and time of baseline prostate biopsy (0-12 months before registration vs > 12-24 months before registration). Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 treatment arms. - Arm I: Patients receive the MEAL program intervention with dietary education and telephone counseling sessions for 24 months. Patients receive the "Participant Notebook", which provides written material describing the counseling program. It also outlines the dietary targets, offers supporting information on strategies to achieve these targets, supplies referent tools to help patients accurately estimate servings of target foods, and offers recipes and articles about diet and prostate cancer. The counseling sessions are divided into 4 phases, with the first three phases completed in 7 months and the fourth phase continuing for 17 months. The first phase comprises 6 counseling calls focusing on education and the rapid development of self-efficacy, the second phase comprises 4 calls over a 2-month period focusing on practical and consistent implementation of the dietary pattern, the third phase comprises 4 calls over a 4-month period helping patients habituate to the dietary pattern by providing regular performance reviews, and the fourth phase comprises 8 calls over a 17-month period and is a maintenance phase. Patients are encouraged to achieve 7 servings per day of vegetables (2 cruciferous, 2 tomato products, 3 other vegetables), 2 servings per day of whole grains, 1 serving per day of beans or other legumes, and 2 servings per day of fruit. Patients also receive 8 regularly scheduled newsletters over the course of 24 months. The newsletters focus on study goals and progress and provide tips on achieving and maintaining diet change. They also include information on diet and cancer, the challenges of diet change, the advances in prostate cancer control, and new recipes. - Arm II: Patients receive standard United States Department of Agriculture dietary guidelines for Americans. Patients also receive 8 regularly scheduled newsletters over the course of 24 months. The newsletters contain general information about diet and healthy lifestyle. Blood (plasma and serum) and tissue samples are collected at baseline and at 12 and 24 months for biomarker and pharmacogenomic studies. Patients complete quality-of-life assessments (Personal Habits Questionnaire, Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy Scale-Prostate (FACT-P), Memorial Anxiety Scare for Prostate Cancer (Max-PC), International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS), Expanded Prostate Cancer Index Composite 26 (EPIC-26), and Nutrition Self-Efficacy and Satisfaction with the MEAL Program) at baseline and at 6, 12, 18, and 24 months. After study entry, patients are followed up every 3 months for 2 years.

    Trial status:

    Open for Enrollment

    Why is this study being done?

    OBJECTIVES: I. To improve 4-year event-free survival (EFS) to 73% for young patients with bilateral Wilms tumor (BWT). II. To prevent complete removal of at least one kidney in 50% of patients with BWT by using prenephrectomy 3-drug chemotherapy induction with vincristine (vincristine sulfate), dactinomycin, and doxorubicin (doxorubicin hydrochloride). III. To evaluate the efficacy of chemotherapy in preserving renal units in children with diffuse hyperplastic perilobar nephroblastomatosis (DHPLN) and preventing Wilms tumor development. IV. To facilitate partial nephrectomy in lieu of nephrectomy in 25% of children with unilateral tumors and aniridia, Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome (BWS), hemihypertrophy or other overgrowth syndromes, by using prenephrectomy 2-drug chemotherapy induction with vincristine and dactinomycin. V. To have 75% of patients with BWT undergo definitive surgical treatment by 12 weeks after initiation of chemotherapy.

    Rochester, Minn. View Summary

    Phase I Trial of In Situ Gene Therapy for Locally Recurrent Prostate Cancer Following Radiation Therapy Failure Using Sodium/Iodide Symporter and Radioiodine

    Location:

    Rochester, Minn.

    Trial status:

    Open for Enrollment

    Why is this study being done?

    OBJECTIVES: Primary - To determine the safety and tolerance of Ad5CMV-NIS administered intraprostatically followed by radioiodine treatment in patients with locally recurrent adenocarcinoma of the prostate following external beam radiotherapy. - To determine the maximum tolerated dose of Ad5CMV-NIS in these patients. Secondary - To evaluate the PSA response rates, duration, and time to PSA progression in these patients. - To evaluate the immune response to Ad5CMV-NIS. OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study of Ad5CMV-NIS. Patients receive intraprostate Ad5CMV-NIS, via transperineal injection under anesthesia, on day 1. They receive dosimetry oral iodine I 123 on day 4 and undergo image studies periodically for the next 24 hours for measurement of radioiodine uptake. Patients receive therapeutic oral iodine I 131 on day 5. All patients with intact thyroid glands (i.e., not previously surgically removed or ablated) receive TSH suppressive doses of oral liothyronine sodium 3 times daily for 10 days prior and for 15 days post administration of iodine I 123. Blood samples are collected periodically for measurement of PSA, fT4, and TSH; and peripheral blood cells are monitored for evidence of virus DNA via quantitative reverse-transcriptase-PCR. After completion of study therapy, patients are followed every 3 months for 1 year, every 4 months for 1 year, and then every 6 months for 8 years. A transrectal tumor biopsy is to be performed at 3 months and 1 year post-treatment.

    A Phase II, Multicenter, Single-Arm Study of MPDL3280A in Patients With Locally Advanced or Metastatic Urothelial Bladder Cancer

    Location:

    Jacksonville, Fla.

    Trial status:

    Open for Enrollment

    Why is this study being done?

    This phase II, single-arm study was designed to evaluate the effect of MPDL3280A treatment in patients with locally advanced or metastatic urothelial bladder ca ncer. Patients will be enrolled into 1 of 2 cohorts. Cohort 1 will consist of pa tients who are treatment-naïve and ineligible for platinum-containing therapy. C ohort 2 will contain patients who have progressed during or following a prior pl atinum-based chemotherapy regimen. Patients in both cohorts will be given a 1200 mg intravenous (IV) dose of MPDL3280A on Day 1 of 21-day cycles. Treatment may continue for up to 16 cycles or 12 months, whichever is first, in the absence of toxicity or disease progression. Patients will be followed for up for 2 years. Patients who complete the initial treatment stage of up to 16 cycles may be eli gible for MPDL3280A re-treatment upon subsequent disease progression during the follow-up period and without intervening systemic anti-cancer therapy.
