Jansen Pharmaceuticals has requested that we let our blog readers know about an upcoming educational webinar they are sponsoring on Tuesday, 9/18/18, 7 p.m. ET. The webinar will be discussing their newly approved treatment, apalutamide (Erleada) which is approved by the FDA for men with castrate resistant, non-metastatic prostate cancer, sometimes referred to as M0 (M-zero) disease.
The NCCN has listed apalutamide (Erleada) as a category 1 recommendation for the treatment of men with non-metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (M0 & CRPC).
he FDA approved a new advanced hormone therapy drug (a next-generation androgen receptor inhibitor) for the treatment of men with non-metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (NM-CRPC). This drug with the trade name Erleada (aka apalutamide), is the first drug approved in this disease space.
Two different trials, SPARTAN and PROSPER, are reporting top-line results in the treatment of men with nmCRPC. The full results of these trials will be presented today at the Genitourinary Cancer Symposium in San Francisco where Cancer ABCs is in attendance.
An application has been made to the FDA for apalutamide, a possible hormonal treatment for men who are castrate resistant, but not yet metastatic.
