ASCO GU 2022 – ERLEADA ® Real-World Study in Metastatic Castration-Sensitive Prostate Cancer or mCSPC

Dr. Benjamin Lowentritt, MD, FACS, Director, Minimally Invasive Surgery and Robotics and Cancer Care Program at Chesapeake Urology and an investigator on the ERLEADA ® (apalutamide) real-world study discusses the findings ​that showed a more than 90 percent decline in ​prostate-specific antigen (​PSA​)​ at six months in a majority of patients with mCSPC, reinforcing the positive results found in the clinical trial setting. The patient-reported outcomes study demonstrated that rapid and deep PSA decline is associated with improved health-related quality of life in advanced prostate cancer.​ These data were presented at the American Society of Clinical Oncology’s Genitourinary Cancers Symposium​ 2022.
