  • Genetic and Molecular Mechanisms in Assessing Response in Patients With Prostate Cancer Receiving Enzalutamide Therapy

    open to eligible males ages 18 years and up

    This clinical trial studies genetic and molecular mechanisms in assessing response in patients with prostate cancer receiving enzalutamide therapy. Androgens can cause the growth of prostate cancer cells. Antihormone therapy, such as enzalutamide, may lessen the amount of androgens made by the body. Studying samples of tissue and blood in the laboratory from patients with prostate cancer may help doctors better understand castration-resistant prostate cancer. It may also help doctors make improvements in prostate cancer treatment.

  • Molecular Features and Pathways in Predicting Drug Resistance in Patients With Metastatic Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer Receiving Enzalutamide

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This research trial studies molecular features and pathways in predicting drug resistance in patients with castration-resistant prostate cancer that has spread to other parts of the body and who are receiving enzalutamide. Studying samples of blood and tissue in the laboratory from patients receiving enzalutamide may help doctors learn more about molecular features and pathways that may cause prostate cancer to be resistant to the drug.

  • Selinexor in Treating Patients With Abiraterone Acetate and/or Enzalutamide Refractory Metastatic Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This phase II trial studies selinexor in treating patients with prostate cancer that has spread to other parts of the body (metastatic), keeps growing even when the amount of testosterone in the body is reduced to very low levels (castration-resistant), and did not respond to treatment (refractory) with abiraterone acetate and/or enzalutamide. Selinexor may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.
