Clinical Trial Title
A Randomized Study to Determine Whether ArginMax Improves the Sexual Function and Quality of Life in Female Cancer Survivors
Trial Summary and Conditions
RATIONALE: L-arginine supplements may improve the quality of life and sexual function in women who are cancer survivors. PURPOSE: This randomized clinical trial is studying an L-arginine supplement to see how well it works compared with a placebo in treating women who are cancer survivors.
See data dictionary for more details.
OBJECTIVES: Primary: Determine whether an L-arginine-based nutritional supplement (ArginMax?) improves the quality of life and sexual function in female cancer survivors. Secondary: Compare quality of life of patients treated with ArginMax? vs placebo. Compare toxicity of these regimens in these patients. Describe the sexual function symptom clusters (if any) in these patients. OUTLINE: This is a randomized, double-blind, parallel-group, placebo-controlled, multicenter study. Patients are stratified according to ECOG performance status (0 or 1 vs 2 or 3), type of malignancy (pelvic vs nonpelvic), and ovarian functional status (yes vs no). Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 treatment arms. Arm I: Patients receive an oral L-arginine-based nutritional supplement (ArginMax?) twice daily. Arm II: Patients receive oral placebo twice daily. In both arms, treatment continues for 12 weeks in the absence of unacceptable toxicity. Sexual function, quality of life, and toxicity are assessed at baseline and every 4 weeks for 12 weeks. PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 186 patients will be accrued for this study.
Primary: Sexual Function [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] Secondary: Quality of Life [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]

This dataset contains all the data used in the publication cited above (PMID=26287032). Baseline demographic and clinical variables are provided for time = 0 (baseline visit). The primary outcome measures for the study are assessed at each time (0=baseline, 4=4 weeks, 8=8 weeks, and 12=12 weeks). Summary measures that are calculated across the participant?s time on study (e.g., worst toxicities and compliance) are recorded on the time = 99 rows. Note that these are measures determined over the entire study period, not a specific time. Notes: Missing data are denoted by a blank or a ?.? for each variable.
