Study Of An Investigational Drug For Metastatic Prostate Cancer That Is Resistant To Hormone Treatment

Description

Seeking men whose prostate cancer has spread beyond their prostate despite treatment with androgen deprivation therapy (also known as castration resistant prostate cancer) for a study comparing the usual treatment to the usual treatment with an experimental drug on controlling the cancer.

Overview

We are studying whether adding an investigational drug to the usual treatment helps control prostate cancer. Some volunteers for this trial will be randomly assigned to get the investigational drug and others will get a drug that looks like the investigational drug, but contains no active medicine (placebo).

What we're hoping for

We hope that adding the investigational drug will help control prostate cancer.
