Trial Information

Adjuvant Androgen Deprivation Versus Mitoxantrone Plus Prednisone Plus Androgen Deprivation in Selected High-Risk Prostate Cancer Patients Following Radical Prostatectomy


- Compare the overall and disease-free survival of patients with high-risk adenocarcinoma
of the prostate treated with adjuvant androgen deprivation therapy with or without
mitoxantrone and prednisone after radical prostatectomy.

- Compare the qualitative and quantitative toxic effects of these regimens in this
patient population.

- Compare the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) progression-free survival rate in patient
treated with these regimens.

- Determine whether PSA progression is a surrogate endpoint for survival or disease-free
survival in this patient population.

OUTLINE: This is a randomized, multicenter study. Patients are stratified according to
surgical extent of disease (organ confined vs not organ confined, but N0 vs N1), Gleason's
sum (less than 7 vs 7 vs greater than 7), and planned radiotherapy (yes vs no). Patients are
randomized to one of two treatment arms.

- Arm I:Patients receive goserelin subcutaneously once every 13 weeks (8 injections
total) and oral bicalutamide once daily for 2 years in the absence of disease
progression or unacceptable toxicity.

- Arm II:Patients receive mitoxantrone IV over 30 minutes on day 1 and oral prednisone
twice daily on days 1-21. Treatment repeats every 3 weeks for 6 courses in the absence
of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients also receive hormonal therapy
as in arm I beginning concurrently with the initiation of mitoxantrone and prednisone.

Patients may undergo radiotherapy 5 days a week for 6.5-7.8 weeks beginning anytime (arm I)
or after completion of chemotherapy (arm II), at the discretion of the physician, in the
absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Patients are offered the possibility to participate in biomarker research by allowing their
tissue/blood to be studied.

Patients are followed every 6 months for 2 years and then annually for up to 13 years.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 1,360 patients (680 per treatment arm) will be accrued for
this study within 9.5 years.
