Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine the therapeutic efficacy of mifepristone in patients with androgen independent prostate cancer [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine the duration of response, time to disease progression and safety of mifepristone in patients with androgen independent prostate cancer [ Time Frame: TBD ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Estimated Enrollment: 48
Study Start Date: February 2005
Study Completion Date: January 2008
Primary Completion Date: June 2006 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Drug: Mifepristone
    200mg orally once daily
    Other Name: RU-486
Detailed Description:

Patients will receive mifepristone, 200mg orally once a day. One treatment cycle is 28 days long. Patients will remain on treatment unless their cancer gets worse or they develop intolerable side effects.

At the end of each cycle a physical examination, routine blood tests, and hormone levels will be performed.

After every 3 cycles, one or more of the following will be performed: bone scan, chest x-ray, CT scan or MRI.
