Testosterone Replacement in Men With Non-Metastatic Castrate Resistant Prostate Cancer
A Randomized, Double Blind, Placebo-Controlled Phase II Study of Testosterone Replacement in Men With Non-Metastatic Castrate Resistant Prostate Cancer

The purpose of this study is to determine whether prostate cancer growth can be slowed in patients who receive Androgel® 1% at 10 gram dose.

The primary objective of the study is to determine the effect of testosterone replacement on time to disease progression and time to clinical cancer progression.

The secondary objectives are to describe the effect of testosterone replacement on patient-reported quality of life (FACT-P, FACT-fatigue and specific measures from the Expanded Prostate Cancer Index (EPIC): Sexual and Hormonal Assessments), and hand-grip strength; to describe changes in total testosterone, free testosterone, and PSA levels; to explore AR levels in circulating tumor cells as a marker of treatment benefit.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Prostate cancer
  • Patient must have received primary definitive local therapy to the prostate (surgery and/or radiotherapy)
  • Patient was surgically or pharmacologically castrated at least 6 months prior to starting the study
  • Patient must have had a previous trial of anti-androgen therapy
  • Patient must have a rising PSA
  • No evidence of distant metastatic disease
  • ECOG performance status < 2
  • Age >18 years
  • Patients must have normal hepatic function

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patients with a history of any previous cytotoxic therapy or radionuclide therapy (such as rhenium, strontium, or samarium)
  • Patients may not be receiving any other investigational agents
  • Uncontrolled intercurrent illness including, but not limited to ongoing or active infection, symptomatic congestive heart failure, unstable angina pectoris, uncontrolled cardiac arrhythmia, or psychiatric illness/social situations that would limit compliance with study requirements
  • Patients receiving renal dialysis
  • Patients with significant pulmonary disease who have received chronic or pulse steroid therapy within the last 3 months prior to randomization will be excluded
