Lycopene in Treating Patients With Metastatic Prostate Cancer
RATIONALE: Lycopene, a substance found in tomatoes, may lower prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels and slow or prevent the development of prostate cancer.
PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of lycopene in treating patients who have asymptomatic metastatic prostate cancer and a rising PSA level.
|Study Design:||Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||A Phase II Trial Of Lycopene For Patients With Asymptomatic Androgen-Independent Metastatic Prostate Cancer With PSA Elevation|
|Study Start Date:||January 2004|
- Determine the percentage of patients with asymptomatic androgen-independent metastatic prostate cancer and an elevated prostate-specific antigen (PSA) level who sustain a decline in PSA after 4 months of treatment with lycopene.
- Determine the response duration of PSA decline in patients treated with this therapy.
- Determine the time to the first consistent PSA increase in patients treated with this therapy.
- Determine whether a decline in PSA coincides with evidence of disease regression on physical examination or radiographic assessment in patients treated with this therapy.
- Determine the adverse event profile of this therapy in these patients.
- Determine the factors that motivate prostate cancer patients to enroll in a nutritional-based therapy study.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Patients receive oral lycopene twice daily on days 1-28. Courses repeat every 28 days for at least 4 months in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Patients are followed every 3 months until disease progression and then every 6 months for up to 5 years.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 40 patients will be accrued for this study within 1 year.
