|ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT00004050|
Recruitment Status : Terminated (Development in prostate cancer indication halted)

RATIONALE: Inserting the gene for interleukin-2 into a person's cancer cells may improve the body's ability to fight cancer. Using Leuvectin to deliver this gene may be an effective treatment for prostate cancer.
PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of Leuvectin followed by surgery in treating patients who have stage II or stage III prostate cancer.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Prostate Cancer||Biological: Leuvectin||Phase 2|
- Assess the toxicity and tolerability of neoadjuvant Leuvectin in patients with stage II or III prostate cancer.
- Evaluate the efficacy of this regimen in preventing or delaying manifestations of disease progression as demonstrated by biochemical failure or clinical recurrence in this patient population.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Patients receive Leuvectin intraprostatically over 10-30 seconds under ultrasound guidance on day 0 followed by a second injection between days 4 and 7. Between days 8 and 14, patients undergo retropubic prostatectomy.
All patients are followed at 2 months. Patients with a PSA no greater than 0.2 ng/mL are followed at 4 months and 6 months, every 3 months for 12 months, and then every 6 months for 3.5 years in the absence of disease progression or biochemical failure.
ACTUAL ACCRUAL: 13 patients were accrued for this study.
