DORA Trial: Phase III Trial of Docetaxel vs. Docetaxel and Radium-223 for Metastatic Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer (mCRPC)


The purpose of this research is to compare any good and bad effects of using radium-223 along with docetaxel chemotherapy (at a lower dose) treatment versus using docetaxel alone (at the usual dose). The addition of radium-223 to docetaxel could be a better cancer treatment than just docetaxel alone, but it could also cause additional side effects. This study will allow the researchers to know whether this different approach is better, the same, or worse than the usual approach.
