Prostate Cancer Clinical Trial
Image-Guided Biopsies to Identify Mechanisms of Resistance in Patients With Metastatic Castration Resistant Prostate Cancer Treated With 177Lu-PSMA Radioligand Therapy
This clinical trial studies mechanisms of resistance to 177-lutetium prostate specific membrane antigen (177Lu-PSMA) radioligand therapy using image-guided biopsies in patients with castrate-resistant prostate cancer that had spread to other places in the body (metastatic). Diagnostic procedures, such as image guided biopsies, may help in learning how well 177Lu-PSMA works to kill tumor cells and allow doctors to plan better treatment.
I. Proportion of metastatic castration resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) patients with molecular and cellular alterations in tumor, immune and stromal cells after radioligand therapy assessed by histopathology/immunohistochemistry, ribonucleic acid (RNA)-sequencing and proteomic/phospho-proteomic analyses of biopsy samples.
I. Sequencing to identify frequently mutated genes.
Patients undergo an image-guided biopsy at baseline and 2-4 weeks after cycle 2 of 177Lu-PSMA-617 therapy.
Histologically confirmed prostate cancer
Eligible for 177Lu-PSMA-617 under expanded access protocol (IRB# 21-5010) or as part of an approved trial
Based on positron emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT) images: Evidence of lymph node or soft tissue metastatic disease amenable to image-guided biopsy
Platelets > 75,000/ul within 14 days prior to biopsy
Prothrombin time (PT) or International normalized ratio (INR) and a partial thromboplastin time (PTT) < 1.5 times the institutional upper limit normal (ULN) within 14 days prior to biopsy
Patients on warfarin, aspirin, or other anti-coagulants are eligible provided they are deemed able to tolerate discontinuation of anti-coagulation for one week prior to the biopsy. Conversion to low molecular weight heparin prior to biopsy is permitted per local standard operating procedures, provided there is agreement regarding the procedure between the treating physician, the interventional radiologist and the principal investigator (PI)
Patients with significant congenital or acquired bleeding disorders (e.g. von Wildebrand's disease, acquired bleeding factor inhibitors) are not eligible
