MOB-RT Trial Summary

This trial is testing a new cancer treatment for 100 patients with high-risk or node-positive prostate cancer. The treatment is a combination of radiotherapy and androgen deprivation therapy.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for men over 18 with high-risk localized prostate cancer or node-positive disease, who are generally in good health (ECOG status 0-1). They must not have had previous pelvic radiotherapy and should be free of metastatic disease as confirmed by imaging. Participants can give informed consent and may receive hormone therapy if their doctor thinks it's necessary.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study is testing a specific type of radiation treatment called moderate hypofractionated boost to the prostate along with pelvic RT. It's designed for patients with serious forms of prostate cancer that hasn't spread beyond the pelvis. The trial will observe how well this intensified radiation approach works.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Potential side effects from this type of radiation treatment could include urinary issues, bowel problems, fatigue, sexual dysfunction, and skin irritation around the treated area. Hormone therapy might also cause hot flashes, reduced sex drive, weight gain, and bone thinning.
