Prostate Cancer




Enzalutamide (Xtandi) and apalutamide (Erleada) had strong showings in 2 separate, randomized phase 3 clinical trials demonstrating that these drugs delay disease progression when added to background androgen-deprivation therapy (ADT) in ­patients with metastatic, hormone-­sensitive prostate cancer.

Darolutamide, an investigational androgen receptor inhibitor, significantly improved metastasis-free survival in men with high-risk nonmetastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) compared with placebo in a large phase 3 clinical trial. Read More ›

For patients with newly diagnosed metastatic prostate ­cancer, current standard management is androgen-deprivation therapy plus docetaxel (Taxotere). Contrary to previous assumptions, radiation to the primary tumor improves survival in men with low metastatic disease burden. This new finding came from the preplanned analysis of the multiarm, multistage STAMPEDE study presented at the ESMO 2018 Congress by lead investigator Chris C.

In the United States, black men are twice as likely to die from prostate cancer as white men, and they are often diagnosed at a younger age and at later stages of the disease. Read More ›

The updated prostate cancer guideline issued by the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) continues to support early detection efforts in well-informed, healthy men, but acknowledges that the optimal screening of high-risk patients is not completely known. Read More ›

The addition of abiraterone acetate (Zytiga) to androgen-­deprivation therapy (ADT) did not increase medical resource utilization in patients with metastatic castration-naïve prostate cancer who participated in the multinational LATITUDE clinical trial. Read More ›

According to the results of 2 separate clinical trials presented at the 2018 Genitourinary Cancers Symposium, apalutamide and enzalutamide reduced the risk for metastasis and prolonged metastasis-free survival in patients with nonmetastatic castrate-resistant prostate cancer.
