  Purpose

The primary purpose of this study is to evaluate the ability of oral triamcinalone given twice a day to patients with androgen independent prostate cancer to produce a sustained biochemical response. Secondary goals are to describe the safety and tolerability at this dose and schedule, to determine the time to sustained biochemical response, to determine the duration of biochemical response, to determine the time to disease progression.
