Everolimus as First-Line Therapy in Treating Patients With Prostate Cancer
RATIONALE: Everolimus may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth and by blocking blood flow to the tumor.
PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying the side effects of everolimus and to see how well it works as first-line therapy in treating patients with prostate cancer.

- Progression-free survival [ Time Frame: at 12 weeks ]
- Progression-free survival [ Time Frame: at 24 weeks ]
- Progression-free survival [ Time Frame: from start of treatment until progression or death of any cause ]from start of treatment until progression or death of any cause, whereas it will be censored at the last follow-up visit or initiation of a different treatment.
- Adverse events according to NCI CTCAE v. 3.0 [ Time Frame: from start of treatment until progression or death of any cause ]
- PSA response [ Time Frame: 50% and 30%, best and at 12 weeks ]
- Changes in PSA-doubling time [ Time Frame: Time points for later calculations include: after 12 weeks, after 24 weeks and at best PSA response ]
- Tumor assessment of measurable disease according to RECIST v1.1 criteria [ Time Frame: The first assessment will be performed after 12 weeks of treatment, or earlier if clinically indicated. ]
- Tumor assessment of bone lesions [ Time Frame: at 12 weeks. ]

Experimental: Arm A: Everolimus
- Determine the progression-free survival at 12 weeks of patients with non-rapidly progressive castration-resistant prostate cancer treated with everolimus as first-line therapy.
- Assess the activity and safety of this regimen in these patients.
- Determine the progression-free survival at 24 weeks of patients treated with this regimen.
- Determine the percentage of PSA response from baseline to 12 weeks in patients treated with this regimen.
- Determine the changes in PSA-doubling time in patients treated with this regimen.
- Determine the overall survival of patients treated with this regimen.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Patients receive oral everolimus once daily on days 1-28. Treatment repeats every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
After completion of study therapy, patients are followed up at 28 days and then every 3 months.
