Clinical Trials

Arizona Institute of Urology has a commitment to provide the most up to date and effective care for our patients. Part of this commitment can be fulfilled by our patient centered services - clinical trials. Through clinical trials we offer our patients the ability to take part in the continued progress of medicine and science. New treatments, both surgical and medical will be made available to our patients by our clinical trials team.

Clinical trials help the medical community to better understand disease and develop new medications, treatments and devices. Without clinical trials it is difficult to advance the care of many complex medical problems. At Arizona Institute of Urology, our physicians provide our patients with the opportunity to participate in this type of research, which offers the following potential benefits:

  • Access to promising treatments often not availableoutside the clinical-trial setting.
  • The study drug or treatment may be provided at no charge to patients.
  • Treatment that may be more effective than the standard approach.
  • Close monitoring, care & support by a research team of doctors and other health care professionals who understand your disease or condition. The research team that conducts clinical trials usually includes top doctors & scientists from around the Unites States and the world, all of whom will be working together with you. Because of this close monitoring, any side affects you might have are noticed &addressedimmediately.
  • The feeling that you’re taking an active role in your own health care and you gain a greater understanding of your disease or condition.
  • Contributing to research that may save lives in the future. Even if you don’t directly benefit from the results of the clinical trial you take part in, the information gathered can help others and adds to scientific knowledge.

People who take part in clinical trials are vital to the process of improving medical care. We are proud to be able to provide this valuable service.

The following enrolling clinical trials are being offered through Arizona Institute of Urology, PLLC:

PROSTATE CANCER

  • Clinical Trial NCT02799745-This study will assess the effectiveness of an approved drug in men who have early stage (localized) prostate cancer and are undergoing active surveillance (being observed over time to see if the prostate cancer changes). The purpose of this study is to see if this drug can delay the progression of early stage prostate cancer.
  • Clinical Trial NCT02200614-This study will assess an oral study drug for men who have been treated for prostate cancer and are now experiencing a rise in prostate specific antigen (PSA) without spread of the cancer to other areas of the body.
  • Trial NCT02531516--This study is for men who have prostate cancer and are planning to undergo radiation therapy. The main purpose of this study is to see if the study drug plus hormone therapy, improves treatment with radiation therapy.
