The aims of this study are:
- to assess the impact of TOOKAD® Soluble-Vascular Targeted Photodynamic Therapy (VTP) on the rate of absence of definite cancer using patients on active surveillance as a comparison (co-primary objective A) and
- to determine the difference in rate of treatment failure associated with observed progression of disease from low risk prostate cancer to moderate or higher risk prostate cancer in men who undergo TOOKAD® Soluble-VTP compared to men on active surveillance (co-primary objective B).
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Prostate Cancer||Drug: TOOKAD® Soluble||Phase 3|
This is a Phase 3, multicentre, open label, randomised controlled study in subjects diagnosed with low risk prostate cancer on TransRectal Ultrasound (TRUS) guided biopsy.
Subjects will be randomised to either Active Surveillance or TOOKAD® Soluble VTP. Subjects will remain in the study for approximately 24 months following randomisation. A total of 400 subjects will be entered into the study; 200 will receive Active Surveillance and 200 will receive TOOKAD® Soluble-VTP.

|Actual Study Completion Date :||August 2015|
Experimental: TOOKAD® Soluble
TOOKAD® Soluble, lyophilized formulation, given at a dose of 4mg/Kg.
Drug: TOOKAD® Soluble
TOOKAD® Soluble-VTP procedure will consist of an IntraVenous (IV) administration to patients using a 753nm laser light at a fixed power of 150mW/cm and a fixed energy at 200J/cm delivered through transperineal interstitial optical fibers. The needles are positioned in the prostate under ultra sound image guidance
Other Name: WST11
No Intervention: Active Surveillance
Active surveillance is one of the management strategy in men who have low-risk prostate cancer
- Co-primary endpoint 'A': Rate of absence of definite cancer using patients on active surveillance as a comparison. [ Time Frame: Month 24 ]Histological changes are assessed using biopsies or any other pathology result obtained during the study planned or not.
- Co-primary endpoint 'B': Difference in rate of treatment failure associated with observed progression of disease from low risk prostate cancer to moderate or higher risk prostate cancer. [ Time Frame: Over 24 months follow-up. ]
Moderate or higher risk is defined as the observation of:
- More than 3 cores positive for cancer when considering all histological examination available during follow-up of study;
- or any Gleason primary or secondary pattern 4 or more;
- or at least one cancer core length greater than 5 mm;
- or PSA>10ng/mL ( in 3 consecutive measures);
- or any T3 prostate cancer,
- or metastasis;
- or prostate cancer related death
- The rate of additional prostate cancer radical therapy [ Time Frame: Over 24 months follow-up ]Number of patients undergoing a radical treatment for prostate cancer such as: radical prostatectomy, radiotherapy, brachytherapy divided by the total number of patients.
- Total number of cores positive for cancer [ Time Frame: Month 24 ]Total number of biopsy sample containing tumor cells at the month 24 biopsy
- The rate of incontinence, erectile dysfunction, urinary symptoms [ Time Frame: Randomisation visit, Day 7 after VTP , Month 3, Month 6, Month 9, Month 12, Month 24 ]Number of patients experiencing urinary incontinence, erectile dysfunction or urinary symptoms events divided by the total number of patients.
- The rate of adverse events [ Time Frame: Screening-Month 24 ]Number of patients experiencing adverse events divided by the total number of patients.
- The rate of severe prostate cancer related events: cancer extension to T3, metastasis and prostate cancer related death [ Time Frame: Screening-Month 24 ]Number of patients experiencing severe prostate cancer related events: cancer extension to T3, metastasis and prostate cancer related death divided by the total number of patients.
- The overall quality of life will be recorded for potential utility and descriptive studies. [ Time Frame: Randomisation visit; Month 12; Month 24 ]Results of the International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF) and International Prostate Symptoms Score (IPSS) patients questionaires.
