PT-112 in mCRPC (Prostate Cancer) - Clinical Trial

What is the Purpose of this Study?


We are doing this study to learn if a new study drug called PT-112 is a safe and effective treatment for metastatic, castrate-resistant prostate cancer. This study is one of the first times PT-112 is being tested in humans. The study drug has been shown to induce cell death in tumor cells, and shrink tumors in animal studies. This study will also teach us how long the study drug stays in your body after you receive it.
