Drug Information available for: Docetaxel

Intervention Details:
  • Drug: Docetaxel
    Docetaxel 75mg/m2 will be given intravenously every 3 weeks for four cycles.
    Other Name: Taxotere
  • Biological: CG1940/CG8711
    Immunotherapy allogeneic GM-CSF secreting cellular vaccine

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Participants With Pathological Complete Response. [ Time Frame: The study evaluates 4 months of docetaxel and immunotherapy prior to radical prostatectomy followed by radical prostatectomy with an additional 3 months of immunotherapy after radical prostatectomy. ]
    CG1940/CG8711 was given along with docetaxel over a series of treatment prior to radical prostatectomy. Pathology of resected specimen was done to determine complete response, defined as no microscopic evidence of neoplastic cells in the resected specimen

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   Male
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients must have clinical stage 1-3 disease and no radiographic evidence of metastatic disease
  • Nomogram Prediction: Patients must have a Kattan nomogram predicted probability of being free from biochemical progression at 5 years after surgery of <60%.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Concurrent or prior treatment with radiation, cytotoxic or biologic therapy for prostate cancer, prior hormonal therapy (except finasteride or dutasteride for obstructive voiding symptoms)
  • Male patients unwilling to use effective means of contraception are excluded. Contraception should be continued for 3 months after treatment.
  • Prior malignancy will not exclude the patient. (Patients can not have active cancer or be undergoing active treatment). The Principal Investigator will make final decision regarding eligibility since the end point is pathological complete response.
