0810010067/J591; A Randomized Phase II Trial of 177-Lu Radio-labeled Monoclonal Antibody HuJ591 (177-Lu-J591) with Ketoconazole in Patients with High-Risk Castrate Biochemically Relapsed Prostate Cancer after Local Therapy
The purpose of this study is to test the effectiveness of the experimental drug, 177Lu-J591 in combination with ketoconazole and hydrocortisone against prostate cancer.
This research is being done because the standard treatments for prostate cancer that has returned (PSA is elevated) after surgery and/or radiation and progressed on initial hormonal therapy are not curative. The study will assess the potential of the energy given off by the radioactive compound to kill cancer cell.
