Inclusion & Exclusion Checklist
Mark “yes” if the following statements are true for you:
Consent to MD Anderson laboratory protocol PA13-0291.
Histological documentation of adenocarcinoma of the prostate reviewed at MD Anderson Cancer Center. Patients with small cell, neuroendocrine, or transitional cell carcinomas are not eligible.
Patients with high-risk prostate cancer (at least 1 core with Gleason sum >= 8) must have at least three core biopsies involved with cancer (a minimum of 6 core biopsies, must be obtained at baseline). A prostate biopsy within 3 months from screening is allowed for entry requirements.
No evidence of metastatic disease as documented by technetium-99m (99mTc) bone scan and by computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans.
Eugonadal state (serum testosterone > 150 ng/dL).
Localized or locally advanced disease deemed by the surgeon to be resectable. Patients must be appropriate candidates for radical prostatectomy plus pelvic lymph node dissection.
No prior treatment for prostate cancer including prior surgery (excluding transurethral resection of the prostate [TURP]), cryoablation, pelvic lymph node dissection, radiation therapy, hormonal therapy or chemotherapy.
To avoid risk of drug exposure through the ejaculate (even men with vasectomies), subjects must use a condom during sexual activity while on study drug and for 3 months following the last dose of study drug. If the subject is engaged in sexual activity with a woman of childbearing potential, a condom is required along with another effective contraceptive method consistent with local regulations regarding the use of birth control methods for subjects participating in clinical studies and their partners. Donation of sperm is not allowed while on study drug and for 3 months following the last dose of study drug.

Measurement Requirements

This trial is evaluating whether Daratumumab will improve 1 primary outcome and 3 secondary outcomes in patients with Adenocarcinoma, Prostate. Measurement will happen over the course of Baseline up to week 18.

Immune changes in blood
Immune changes in tumor tissue

Pathologic response will be measured from the surgical specimen. Pathologic CR is defined as the absence of residual tumor in the radical prostatectomy specimen (i.e., pT0).
Incidence of adverse events
Will be graded according to Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) version 4.03. Will be recorded for all patients, recording name, grade, start and end dates, attribution to study drug, and whether the event was alleviated or controlled with relevant appropriate care similar to Phase I trials.

What are the chances of developing adenocarcinoma, prostate?

The odds of developing prostate cancer increased 1.6-fold as the age at the time of first menses decreased by 5 years. However, an individual's risk of developing adenocarcinoma was low. Although prostate cancers were more common in the first-degree relatives of men with prostate cancer than in the controls (odds ratio, 1.95; p < 0.01), this increase was offset by a very low incidence of high-risk, Stage T3 adenocarcinomas (incidence ratio, 0.12; p < 0.01).

Anonymous Patient Answer

Does daratumumab improve quality of life for those with adenocarcinoma, prostate?

Daratumumab for 4 weeks is safe for most patients with mCRC and improves QOL. The addition of 4 weeks of darbepoetin and daratumumab resulted in worse QOL in a group of patients with the worst baseline QOL, indicating darbepoetin may be a better choice than daratumumab.
