This is a clinical research study of an investigational (FDA IND-BB 10091) treatment of subjects with castration-resistant prostate cancer resistant to docetaxel.

The treatment is being evaluated for its effect on tumor growth. It consists of small beads that contain mouse cancer cells from a mouse kidney cancer cell line. The cells in the beads produce substances that have shown to slow or stop the growth of tumors in experimental animals, veterinary patients, and 23 human subjects with different types of cancers in a Phase I safety trial.
