Study Summary

This trial is studying the effects of radiation on prostate cancer patients.

Who is the study for?
Men with prostate cancer can join this trial if they have a confirmed diagnosis, are in good physical condition (Karnofsky score of 70-100), and fall into one of three risk groups based on tumor size, Gleason score, and PSA levels. Hormone therapy is allowed under specific conditions for each risk group.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The trial is testing the effects of CyberKnife Stereotactic Radiosurgery—a type of highly focused radiation—on prostate tumors. It aims to see if this method has fewer side effects than standard treatments and how it impacts patients' quality of life over time.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
While not explicitly listed in the provided information, potential side effects from stereotactic radiosurgery may include urinary issues, bowel problems, fatigue, skin reactions at the treatment site, erectile dysfunction, and other radiation-related complications.

Experimental Treatment
Group I: CyberKnife Stereotactic RadiosurgeryExperimental Treatment1 Intervention
This treatment concentrates large doses of radiation onto the tumor so that injury from radiation to the nearby normal tissue will be minimal. CyberKnife Stereotactic Radiosurgery is not investigational and is considered standard of care.
