This study is being conducted to assess and monitor immune response in patients with minimally symptomatic or asymptomatic hormone refractory prostate cancer who will be receiving Provenge® (Sipuleucel-T) therapy as part of their standard of care treatment regimen. The trial only involves the collection of additional blood samples for the purposes of monitoring immune response. These samples will be taken at 7 time points before, during and after patients receive Provenge® (Sipuleucel-T). There will be no other study-specific procedures performed (other than the blood draws) nor any use of investigational agents in this study.

Study Population

Subjects that will be included in this study will be receiving Provenge as standard of care treatment for their prostate cancer and will be willing to consent to the additional blood draws.


In order for patients to receive treatment with Provenge® (Sipuleucel-T) at the Mary Crowley clinic, patients must consent to the additional blood draws and be willing to come into the clinic in adherence to the schedule of blood sample collections. Patients who do not consent to these immune response blood samples will be unable to receive Provenge® (Sipuleucel-T) at Mary Crowley but will be referred to a another physician and/or clinic able to provide Provenge® (Sipuleucel-T).
