Trial Information

MRI-guided Bone Marrow Biopsies of Advanced CaP Patients


- This study involves a one-time, MRI-guided bone marrow biopsy. Prior to this
procedure, patients will need to have a bone scan performed within the last three
months and a PSA blood test drawn within one month of registration to the study.

- Patients are also required to participate in the DFCI research study "Collection of
Specimens and Clinical Data for Patients with Prostate Cancer or at High Risk for
Prostate Cancer".


Inclusion Criteria:



- Histologic diagnosis of prostate cancer

- Bone scan consistent with or suspicious of metastatic prostate cancer within last
three months

- Platelet count > 50,000/ul

- PT and aPTT < 1.5 x control

- At least one week removed from taking aspirin or coumadin

- Currently participating in protocol "Collection of Specimens and Clinical Data for
Patients with Prostate Cancer or at High Risk for Prostate Cancer"

Exclusion Criteria:

- Devices incompatible to MR studies (e.g. pacemakers, ear implants, etc.)

Type of Study:

Interventional

Study Design:

Allocation: Non-Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Diagnostic

Outcome Measure:

To compare the yield of detecting metastatic prostate cancer tissue using MRI-guided bone marrow needle biopsies to that of historical controls obtained through unguided biopsies.
