Dr. Vaishampayan is conducting a pilot trial of oral cabozantinib/ XL184 in metastatic castrate resistant prostate cancer to explore the changes in bone and tumor imaging related pathways (KCI Protocol # 2011-185). It is now closed to accrual, but research related intervention and follow up are ongoing.

In collaboration with Dr. Gadgeel (MT), Dr. Hillman studies the effects of soy isoflavones on decreasing or preventing the inflammation associated with lung cancer radiation therapy (Hillman G, J Thorac Oncol, 2013).
