We propose a single-arm, open-label, phase ii trial of Sipuleucel-T and SaBR administered concurrently. The safety profile of both SaBR and Sipuleucel-T is excellent and therefore there are limited concerns for toxicity when they are administered concurrently. Given the three randomized phase iii clinical trials of Sipuleucel-T available for comparision and historic control, a two arm trial is not necessary. However, this limits the study populations that were present in those trials, which are asymptomatic and minimally symptomatic mCRPC patients.
