Encore: MDV3100 trial - more details


Recommended Posts

If your PSA is rising despite hormone deprivation therapy, and you have not had chemotherapy, you may be eligible for this trial of a very strong anti-androgen called MDV3100. (Anti-androgens are a family of drugs that include Cosudex, Casodex (bicalutamide).)

This was previously reported as a Brisbane trial, but details of other sites have been added to the original posting.

Also added is a link to the ClinicalTrials.gov site where the full details can be found.

I was originally accepted for this trail in Brisbane and was preparing the Patient details sent to me when the Clinical Nurse (Robyn Medcraft) recontacted me with the following e-mail.

Dear Paul,

I hope you are well, I have had a meeting with the clinical trial monitor today and discussed your eligibility, unfortunately you have received ERBT on bony mets in your S1 Sacrum, as per the protocol of this trial you are only eligible if you have only received ERBT to your Prostate.

Paul I'm really sorry that you don't fit the criteria for this trial but I can ask professor Gardiner if he knows of any other trials about.

Kindest Regards


The trial prerequisites do not mention previous use of EBRT so be aware of this.
