Research Study on Urinary and Bladder Complaints/Symptoms

Individuals age 18 and older with urinary or bladder complaints are invited to participate in a research study. We will collect information through an interview to learn more about your thoughts, opinions, and experiences with your urinary or bladder symptoms. Participants will be asked to come to the Urology Clinic for one visit lasting approximately 60-90 minutes. Participants with a primary complaint of bladder pain are not eligible. Compensation is available.

If you or someone you know is interested in this study, please call contact Diane Meyerholz at 319-356-1111 or diane-meyerholz@uiowa.edu.

Phase II Study of Adenovirus/PSA Vaccine in Men with Recurrent or Hormone Refractory Prostate Cancer

The University of Iowa Department of Urology and the Holden Clinical Cancer Center are conducting a clinical research study of a gene therapy vaccine for recurrent prostate cancer.

We are seeking patients with recurrence of prostate cancer after surgery, radiation therapy, or hormonal treatment.

All prostate cancer patients who are interested in this study will be carefully screened for participation. Not all patients will qualify for this study.

Those selected to participate will receive three vaccinations (shots) 30 days apart, and will be watched closely for development of immune response to the vaccine and changes in their prostate cancer.

To learn more about enrolling in this clinical research study, please contact Pamela Zehr, Clinical Research Coordinator, at 319-353-8914, or pamela-zehr@uiowa.edu.
