The PROTECT-PROvenge Treatment and Early Cancer Treatment trial is a Phase IIIB trial for patients with hormone sensitive prostate cancer. The study is being conducted at over 15 participating centers throughout the US. The purpose of the study is to determine if Provenge is effective for treatment of early stage, non-metastatic prostate cancer. If you have rising PSA after radical prostatectomy, but have no evidence yet of metastasis, you may be eligible. The study compares the active vaccine to placebo (your dendritic cells that were not activated in the laboratory) to determine whether the product delays the time until the cancer progresses.
