|Prostate Cancer||Drug: leuprolide acetate||Phase 3|
Other assessments include evaluation of main leuprolide PK parameters in 12 subjects after administration of 3 doses.
This will be a multi-center, open-label, fixed investigation of six monthly dosages of leuprolide acetate 3.75 mg administered to patients with histologically proven carcinoma of prostate, who might benefit from medical androgen deprivation therapy.
A total of 120 male patients will receive a single, i.m. injection of leuprolide acetate 3.75 mg initially on study day 0 (after baseline assessment) and then monthly (i.e. every 28 days) for five months.
12 of the patients will also have plasma leuprolide levels measured for PK analysis during the first 3 injection periods (PK group). These patients will belong to pre-defined study sites.

- Efficacy: to determine the proportion of patients achieving castration levels of plasma testosterone (defined as <0.5 ng/mL) 4 weeks after the first administration
- to determine the proportion of patients maintaining castration levels of plasma testosterone from week 4 to study end
- to determine the proportion of patients showing acute rises in plasma testosterone levels upon repeated dosing from week 4 to study end
- Safety: evaluation of the safety of the new formulation based on adverse events (AEs), local tolerability, vital signs, electrocardiograms (ECGs), and clinical parameters
- Efficacy: determination of serum luteinizing hormone (LH), follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), and prostate-specific antigen (PSA) concentrations
- World Health Organization/Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (WHO/ECOG) performance status, bone pain, urinary symptoms and urinary pain after administration
