Clinical Trial

Docetaxel and Carboplatin in Treating Patients With Metastatic, Castration Resistant Prostate Cancer Containing Inactivated Genes in the BRCA 1/2 Pathway

Complete title:
A Pilot Study of Docetaxel and Carboplatin for Treatment of Patients with Metastatic, Castration Resistant Prostate Cancer Containing Biallelic Inactivation of Genes in the BRCA1/2 Pathway
Trial phase:
Phase II
Study ID:
Local study ID:
This pilot clinical trial studies docetaxel and carboplatin in treating patients with castration resistant prostate cancer that has spread from the primary site (place where it started) to other places in the body (metastatic) and contains inactivated genes in the BRCA 1/2 pathway. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as docetaxel and carboplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading.
