Trial summary

The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of androgen deprivation therapy, a treatment commonly prescribed in prostate cancer patients, on the effectiveness of medical imaging techniques. 

Who is it for?
You may be eligible for this study if you are an adult who has been diagnosed with metastatic prostate cancer.

Study details:
Participants are required to undergo 2 PSMA Scans, the 1st within 28days prior to starting treatment with the medication enzalutamide and the 2nd 14 days after starting enzalutamide. Participants will be required to undergo a physical exam with the Dr which will include a blood test to assess kidney function.
