  We report results of a double-blind, randomized, placebo controlled trial of the effects of drinking cranberry juice on risk of recurring UTI among college-aged women. The trial was developed to detect a 2-fold difference in incidence of recurring UTI with alpha of and power of 99%. Reply to the Reply to Andrew J. Portis and Matthew F.

Trial design: A randomized controlled trial to demonstrate an overall survival (OS) advantage for the addition of short term (6 months) ADT versus no additional ADT in the context of dose escalated RT for patients with intermediate risk prostate cancer. This is a multi-center, randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind, parallel group trial evaluating mepolizumab mg against placebo given every 4 weeks through subcutaneous (SC) injection. In severe COPD patients, sputum eosinophils levels are elevated similar as .   (Kantoff PW, J Clin Oncol. Aug;17(8)) Outcome: MH better in TTTF, response rate, pain control, and QoL. No difference in survival ( months vs. months, NS) Conclusion: Mitoxantrone with hydrocortisone had more frequent response, delay to progression, and pain control than hydrocortisone alone.   Purpose High-grade prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia (HGPIN) is a putative precursor of invasive prostate cancer (PCa). Preclinical evidence suggests vitamin E, selenium, and soy protein may prevent progression of HGPIN to PCa. This hypothesis was tested in a randomized phase III double-blind study of daily soy (40 g), vitamin E ( U), and selenium ( μg) versus placebo. Patients and.

Casodex, a new nonsteroidal antiandrogen, is presently being investigated in phase III studies as a new hormonal treatment for advanced prostatic cancer. The safety and efficacy of Casodex at a dosage of 50 mg. daily for 24 weeks in patients with benign prostatic hypertrophy were investigated in this double-blind placebo-controlled trial.

Purpose Retrospective studies suggest that metastasis-directed therapy (MDT) for oligorecurrent prostate cancer (PCa) improves progression-free survival. We aimed to assess the benefit of MDT in a randomized phase II trial.

Patients and Methods In this multicenter, randomized, phase II study, patients with asymptomatic PCa were eligible if they had had a biochemical recurrence after primary.

These results are consistent with those from another large placebo-controlled clinical trial of onabotulinumtoxinA in OAB patients with UI, which showed a mean decrease from baseline in UI episodes per day of − at wk 12 following treatment with onabotulinumtoxinA U, in line with the mean decrease of − observed in the present.

PURPOSE Enzalutamide, a potent androgen-receptor inhibitor, has demonstrated significant benefits in metastatic and nonmetastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer. We evaluated the efficacy and safety of enzalutamide in metastatic hormone-sensitive prostate cancer (mHSPC).

All trials were randomized (Sipuleucel-T or control), double-blinded, placebo-controlled and multi-centric.

The primary endpoint was TTP in two studies (14,15) and OS in one study (16) (Table-2). Patients were randomly assigned in a ratio to receive either Sipuleucel-T or placebo every 2 weeks, for a total of three infusions.

Background: Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are common among women and frequently recur. Depletion of vaginal lactobacilli is associated with UTI risk, which suggests that repletion may be beneficial. We conducted a double-blind placebo-controlled trial of a Lactobacillus crispatus intravaginal suppository probiotic (Lactin-V; Osel) for prevention of recurrent UTI in premenopausal women.

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in older men in the United States (USA) and Western Europe. Androgen deprivation (AD) constitutes, in most cases, the first-line of treatment for these cases. The negative impact of CAD in quality of life, secondary to the adverse events of sustained hormone deprivation, plus the costs of this therapy, motivated the intermittent treatment approach.

For the first review question, randomised controlled trials (RCTs) examining parenteral oestrogen in patients diagnosed with prostate cancer were included.

Studies had to report at least one of the following outcome measures: overall survival, disease-free survival, disease progression, adverse events, quality of life, and economic costs.

The Medical Therapy of Prostatic Symptoms (MTOPS) is a clinical research study sponsored by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The study will test whether the oral drugs finasteride (Proscar) and doxazosin (Cardura), alone or together, can delay or prevent further worsening of symptoms in men with Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH).

These 3 controlled studies show significant reduction in disease progression with the use of intravesical BCG. Overall, the mean rate of progression is reduced from 28% in control subjects to 14% in those receiving BCG.

BCG immunotherapy reduced tumor recurrence by an average of 40%, compared with the 14% average reduction with chemotherapy.

written metaphor and story can be used to increase knowledge of the biology of pain and reduce pain-related catastrophizing.

Methods: In this randomized single-blind partial cross-over controlled trial, 79 people with chronic pain received either a booklet of metaphors and stories conveying key pain biology concepts or a booklet containing advice on how to manage chronic pain.

RCT, randomized controlled trial; MIBC, muscle-invasive bladder cancer. The information for the included studies is presented in Tables 1 and and2 2 [ 14, 15, 18, 26 ].

All included trials were prospective RCTs. Materials and methods: Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, MEDLINE®, EMBASE®, Scopus and Web of Science® were searched for sporadic renal tumors that were surgically treated with partial or radical nephrectomy. Generic inverse variance with fixed effects models were used to determine the pooled HR for each outcome.
