Overall Survival

Survival Not Improved by Adding Radiotherapy in All Newly Diagnosed Men with Metastatic Prostate Cancer

According to the results of the STAMPEDE trial.1 adding radiotherapy (radiation) to the current standard-of-care androgen deprivation therapy (ADT of hormone therapy) did not improve the overall survival in all men who are newly diagnosed metastatic prostate cancer.   

Abiraterone or Docetaxel? 

Since the approvals for the early use of docetaxel chemotherapy (Taxotere) and the early use of abiraterone acetate (Zytiga) there is no clear evidence demonstrating which of these two agents should be used for men with hormone sensitive, newly diagnosed, aggressive prostate cancer. 

Comparing the Efficacy of the Treatment Options of Metastatic, Castration-Resistant, Docetaxel-Resistant Prostate Cancer

There was a large meta-analysis recently published that compared the efficacy of abiraterone acetate (Zytiga), enzalutamide (Xtandi), cabazitaxel (Jevtana) and Radium-223 (Xofigo) in the treatment of castration-resistant, docetaxel-resistant metastatic prostate cancer.

Understanding The Patterns of Care and Outcomes for Men with Node Positive Prostate Cancer

Treatment modalities vary for men diagnosed with pathologic lymph node-positive (pN1) prostate cancer. Understanding current treatment patterns and their outcomes can help provide you with insight and direction in your decision-making.
