What is Involved?
We are doing this study to learn if the study drug called 177Lu-PSMA-617 is safe and effective compared to changing a hormone therapy in men with metastatic castrate-resistant prostate cancer.
If you are initially assigned to receive the hormone therapy, you may be able to "crossover" to the 177Lu-PSMA-617 arm if your cancer continues to grow while you are on hormone therapy.
