A Guide To Prostate Cancer Clinical Trials
Searching for prostate cancer clinical trials can be difficult and understanding all treatment options is overwhelming. Patients with prostate cancer may be wondering what the right course of action is to decide which treatment option and clinical trial is right for them.
It doesn’t have to be done alone.
We've created an actionable guide that lays out the considerations when dealing with prostate cancer treatment and clinical trials to ensure no step is missed and to help manage the process.
Step 1: Understanding Prostate Cancer
Understanding Prostate Cancer
Prostate cancer occurs when abnormal cells develop within the prostate and is the most common cancer for men in the United States. Most cases progress slowly, with early detection the chances for successful treatment increase. The prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test measures the level of protein in the blood made by the prostate and is used to detect any abnormalities within the prostate.
Types of Prostate Cancer include:
- Acinar adenocarcinoma
- Ductal adenocarcinoma
- Transitional cell (or urothelial) cancer
- Squamous cell cancer
- Small cell prostate cancer
Step 2: How Clinical Trials Can Help
How Clinical Trials Can Help
Around 300 prostate cancer clinical trials are currently active in the United States. These trials are investigating new treatments and detection methods that could save lives in the future such as:
- High-intensity–focused ultrasound therapy
- Proton beam radiation therapy
- Photodynamic therapy
Participating in a clinical trial not only progresses much needed research but gives patients access to these new innovative therapies years before the general population.
