Study Summary

This trial is testing a new drug for prostate cancer that has resisted other treatments. They are testing to see if it is safe and tolerable for humans.

Who is the study for?
Men over 18 with advanced prostate cancer that hasn't responded to chemotherapy and certain hormone therapies. They must have a life expectancy of at least 6 months, be in fairly good physical condition (ECOG status of 0 or 1), and agree to use effective contraception. Men with active infections, immune disorders, unstable heart conditions, recent bisphosphonate treatment, or substance abuse issues cannot participate.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The trial is testing LAVA-1207's safety and how well it works for men whose prostate cancer has spread and resisted previous treatments. This early-phase study will gradually determine the best dose to minimize risks while assessing its effectiveness against the cancer.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
As this is an early-stage trial for LAVA-1207, specific side effects are not yet fully known but may include typical reactions related to cancer drugs such as nausea, fatigue, allergic responses or more serious complications depending on individual patient health.

"That is correct. The information available on clinicaltrials.gov reveals that this research project, which was originally published on June 27th 2022, is still recruiting patients. In total, 66 individuals are needed for the study to be conducted at 4 different hospitals or clinics."

Answered by AI

What is the purpose of this clinical trial?

"The primary objective of this clinical trial, as measured over a period of approximately 6 months, is to assess the frequency and type of DLT (defined as Development of antibodies (anti-drug antibodies) to LAVA-1207). In addition to the primary outcome, this study will also evaluate secondary outcomes including the incidence and prevalence of anti-LAVA-1207 antibodies (defined as Binding of LAVA-1207 to Vγ9Vδ2-T cells), biomarkers, binding of LAVA-1207 to Vγ9Vδ2-T cells (defined as measuring the binding of"
