Lu-177 Ludotadipep

for Prostate Cancer

Phase 1: The objective of the Phase 1 part of the clinical trial is to verify safety and tolerability (dose-limiting toxicity [DLT], maximum tolerated dose [MTD]) of a single 3.7 Giga-Becquerel (GBq) dose with the potential for one dose level de-escalation to 2.775 GBq if necessary, to determine the recommended [177Lu]Ludotadipep dose for use in the Phase 2a part of the trial. Phase 2a: The objective of the Phase 2a part of the trial is to evaluate safety and efficacy for repeated administration of the recommended [177Lu]Ludotadipep dose. The Recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D) will be based on the study results from the Phase 1 trial in South Korea upon consultation with the FDA.

Time-Restricted Eating

for Prostate Cancer Survivorship

Frailty is one of the main reasons older adults lose independence. Frailty describes a reduced ability to withstand stress on the physiological scale, or a reduced physiological reserve. The theory is that entrainment of circadian rhythm via time-restricted eating will improve the body's ability to predict energy supply and demand, and therefore enable the body to allocate more resources to anabolic processes and promote resilience to cancer treatment, thereby preventing the progression of frailty. A total of 30 individuals over 55 years old undergoing ADT therapy for prostate cancer will be recruited. Participants will be randomized 1:1 to a 12-week TRE intervention or a time-unrestricted nutrition control intervention. At baseline and post-intervention, Fried's Frailty Index will be used to assess frailty, and a novel set of five physiological responsiveness measures will be used to assess physiological responsiveness-1) lying-to-standing blood pressure, 2) heart rate variability, 3) oral glucose tolerance test, 4) 24-hour circadian cortisol rhythm, and 5) usual vs. fast gait speed. These data will allow assessment of 1) the feasibility of TRE among patients with prostate cancer during ADT treatment with the ultimate goal of optimizing an intervention to prevent the progression of frailty, and 2) the effects of TRE vs. control on frailty and physiological responsiveness.
