Enzalutamide and Cabazitaxel in Treating Patients With Metastatic, Hormone-Resistant Prostate Cancer

Complete title: A Phase I/II Trial of Concurrent Chemohormonal therapy using Enzalutamide (MDV-3100) and Cabazitaxel in Patients with Metastatic Castration Resistant Prostate Cancer

Research Study Number 9279
 
Principal Investigator Heather Cheng
 
Phase I/II

Research Study Description

This phase I/II trial studies the side effects and best dose of cabazitaxel when given together with enzalutamide in treating patients with prostate cancer that has spread to other places in the body (metastatic) and has not responded to treatment with hormones (hormone-resistant). Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cabazitaxel, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Androgen can cause the growth of prostate cancer cells. Hormone therapy using enzalutamide may fight prostate cancer by blocking the use of androgen by the tumor cells. Giving cabazitaxel together with enzalutamide may work better in treating metastatic, hormone-resistant prostate cancer.
