Docetaxel With a Phytochemical in Treating Patients With Hormone Independent Metastatic Prostate Cancer
Pilot Phase II Study of Docetaxel in Combination With a Dietary Phytonutrient in First Line Treatment of Hormone Independent Metastatic Prostate Cancer
RATIONALE : Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as docetaxel, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Dietary supplements, such as phytochemicals, may stop or delay the development of prostate cancer.
The purpose of this study is to assess the pathological response rate in metastatic prostate cancer patients treated by : Docetaxel with a phytochemical
Phase 2
Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Metastatic Prostate Cancer
  • Dietary Supplement: phytochemical
  • Drug: Docetaxel
