Reporting Groups
  Description
Lovastatin After informed consent and central pathology review of the core prostate biopsy, eligible patients who decide to undergo prostatectomy at Johns Hopkins will be scheduled to receive po lovastatin following a four times a day schedule, at the starting dose of 20 mg/kg/day. Following an initial period of monitoring for safety at this entry dose level of one month, we will then accrue patients to dose de-escalation (to 1, and 10 mg/kg/day) cohorts.
