Prostate cancer may return after treatment in anywhere from 30,000 to 50,000 people each year. As a result, researchers are looking for better ways to treat the disease when it recurs. A trial led by Ravi A. Madan, M.D., Senior Clinician in the Genitourinary Malignancies Branch, is studying hormone blocking therapy and immunotherapy without testosterone suppression for patients with biochemically recurrent prostate cancer and a positive PSMA scan.

The trial will take place at the NIH Clinical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, and there is no cost for participation.
