  Purpose
The purpose of this study is see if quality of life is improved in patients receiving oral hormone therapy compared to standard of care. The study will also compare survival rates between patients receiving oral hormone therapy and those receiving standard of care.

Condition Intervention

Further study details as provided by University of Chicago:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Quality of Life [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    Health-related quality of life will be summarized using a score reflecting patient reported symptoms in sexual, hormone/vitality, fatigue, and overall quality of life.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Progression Free Survival [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
    Increase in prostate specific antigen (PSA)measured over time.


Estimated Enrollment: 40
Actual Study Start Date: December 17, 2010
Estimated Study Completion Date: April 2019
Estimated Primary Completion Date: October 2018 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Oral Androgen Therapy
Subjects will receive two oral hormonal drugs (bicalutamide with dutasteride or bicalutamide with finasteride)
Drug: Bicalutamide
Bicalutamide 50 mg orally daily with either dutasteride or finasteride for 2 months. After two months of treatment bicalutamide with either dutasteride or finasteride will be taken along with radiation. After completion of radiation, bicalutamide will be stopped.
Other Name: Casodex
Drug: Dutasteride
Dutasteride 0.5 mg orally will be taken daily with bicalutamide for 2 months. After two months of treatment dutasteride and bicalutamide will be taken along with radiation. After completion of radiation, dutasteride will be taken alone for two years.
Other Names:
  • Avodart
  • Jalyn
Drug: Finasteride
Finasteride 5 mg orally will be taken daily with bicalutamide for 2 months. After two months of treatment finasteride and bicalutamide will be taken along with radiation. After completion of radiation, finasteride will be taken alone for two years.
Other Names:
  • Propecia
  • Proscar
Radiation: Radiation
7-8 weeks of radiation with bicalutamide and either dutasteride or finasteride.

  • Baseline serum PSA within 60 days prior to registration
  • Baseline serum testosterone obtained within 60 days prior to registration
  • Study entry PSA and serum testosterone must not be obtained during the following time frames, 10-day period following prostate biopsy, following initiation of oral androgen manipulation, within 30 days after discontinuation of finasteride or dutasteride
  • CBC/ differential obtained within 60 days prior to registration with adequate bone marrow function

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Prior radical surgery (prostatectomy), high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) or cryosurgery for prostate cancer
  • Prior hormonal therapy, such as LHRH agonists (e.g., goserelin, leuprolide), antiandrogens (e.g., flutamide, bicalutamide), estrogens (e.g., DES), or bilateral orchiectomy
  • Use of 5-alpha reductase inhibitors (finasteride, dutasteride) specifically prescribed for the treatment of prostate cancer
  • Prior or concurrent cytotoxic chemotherapy for prostate cancer; prior chemotherapy for a different cancer is permitted
  • Prior radiation, including brachytherapy, to the region of the prostate that would result in overlap of RT fields
