RATIONALE: Efavirenz may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.
PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well efavirenz works in treating patients with metastatic prostate cancer.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Prostate Cancer||Drug: efavirenz||Phase 2|
- To assess the effect of efavirenz on the non-PSA progression rate at 3 months in patients with castration-refractory metastatic prostate cancer.
- To assess the effect of efavirenz on the PSA response at 3 months.
- To assess the effect of efavirenz on overall survival.
- To assess the effect of efavirenz on PSA progression-free survival.
- To assess the effect of efavirenz on symptomatic progression-free survival.
- To assess the tolerability and safety profile of efavirenz.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Patients receive oral efavirenz once daily in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
