The drug, Dutasteride, will be administered at 0.5 mg dose and given everyday (QD), for 3 months.
Dutasteride will be administered at 0.5 mg dose and it will be given every day (QD), for approximately 3 months, followed by 3D mapping biopsy.
Other Name: Avodart
Placebo Comparator: Placebo
The placebo group will receive a placebo drug for 3 months, instead of the intervention drug, Dutasteride.
The placebo group will receive the same standard of care as the intervention group, but instead of receiving the intervention drug, Dutasteride, participants will receive a placebo drug for the same 3 month period.
- To Determine the Effect of Short-term Intake of Daily Dutasteride Prostate Cancer Volume, Distribution Within the Gland and Gleason Score Sum in Patients in Comparison to Placebo After Adjusting for Changes in Prostate Gland Volume. [ Time Frame: 24 Months ]The effect of Dutasteride intake on the following parameters as detected by mapping biopsy vs. initial trans-rectal biopsy in the treatment arm and the control group: change in prostate gland volume, change in distribution within the gland, and change in Gleason score sum.
