The journal Cancer, which is a journal of the American Cancer Society – published results of the PROCEED registry, that found that men with advanced prostate cancer with low PSA had a median survival of nearly 4 years after treatment with PROVENGE® (sipuleucel-T). A median survival means that one half of the men who participated in the registry lived longer than four years.
The PROCEED registry is the largest real-world study of immunotherapy. Nearly 2,000 men with metastatic castrate-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) who received PROVENGE in everyday treatment settings – urology and medical oncology clinics across the U.S. – were enrolled in PROCEED between January 2011 and January 2014.
· Findings showed that men with mCRPC who were treated when their PSA was <5.27 ng/mL had a median survival of 47.7 months.
· In addition, 44% of these men did not receive any additional cancer treatments for at least one year – nearly all of these men were treated with PROVENGE as first-line therapy as recommended by the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN).
