98110  (ArginMax for Prostate Cancer Survivors Treated with Radiotherapy)

Announcement from study PI:

As a reminder, our dose finding study of ArginMax for prostate cancer survivors treated with radiotherapy remains open for accrual.  To date, we have accrued 70 + patients of a planned 140 averaging nearly 6 patients per month.  We appreciate the robust accrual to date and overall support of this study.  During the past month, we have noticed a slight dip in accrual. We encourage all sites to continue either their excellent accrual or consider opening this study.  With your continued robust support, we are likely to finish this study in about 1 more year.  If there are questions regarding accrual please do not hesitate to contact me or the study team.  

Thanks,

James J. Urbanic, M.D.
