Biomarkers of Bone Resorption in Metastatic Prostate Cancer
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
Biomarkers of bone resorption will be measured in the blood of patients with bone metastases from prostate cancer during the course of their illness. Changes in these biomarkers will be correlated with the patient's treatment with antiandrogen therapy and bisphosphonates and the response and/or progression of their cancer. It is hoped that serial measurement of these biomarkers may allow therapeutic monitoring in the future with successful individualisation of bisphosphonate therapy for metastatic prostate cancer.
