  • Radium-223 radiation vs. new hormone therapy in prostate cancer trial

    In this study, scientists are looking into two treatments for prostate cancer that has spread to the bone. One is a medicine called Radium-223 Dichloride or simply Xofigo which uses radiation to destroy cancer cells. The other is a new kind of treatment that stops hormones from working, as these hormones can sometimes help cancer grow. This new treatment is called Novel Anti-hormonal Therapy or NAH for short. The aim is to see which works better and to compare their safety profiles. Xofigo works by emitting a special type of radiation once it is injected into the body and absorbed by the bones. This radiation travels only a short distance, so it doesn’t harm healthy cells while killing cancerous ones. NAH, on the other hand, includes medications like abiraterone acetate (Zytiga) or enzalutamide (Xtandi) which are usually given to advanced prostate cancer patients. People taking part in this study will either receive Xofigo or NAH. Xofigo is given via an injection into a vein every 4 weeks for up to 6 months, while an oral form of NAH will be given daily until the disease progresses. Participants will be in this study for around 2 years, visiting the hospital or clinic every 2 weeks initially and then less often. There will be blood and urine tests and questionnaires about well-being and pain management.
