  Purpose

The goal of this study is to apply cutting-edge imaging approaches, incorporating machine-learning for pattern recognition and multispectral analysis, to the development and validation of intermediate endpoint biomarkers in benign tissue that characterize the response to 5α-reductase inhibitor chemoprevention as well as the risk of prostate cancer among men with negative biopsies.

Further study details as provided by University of Illinois at Chicago:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Effects of dutasteride (vs. placebo) using multi-feature scores derived from digital image analysis on both nuclear and architectural features in benign prostate tissue. [ Time Frame: Year 4 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Multivariable treatment-response score between subjects who develop PCa while on dutasteride and those who do not. [ Time Frame: Year 4 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Magnitude of association between nuclear phenotype in benign biopsies, and subsequent risk of PCa in untreated men at elevated risk. [ Time Frame: Year 4 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples Without DNA

Biopsy tissue (Year 2 and Year 4) already collected in REDUCE trial
