Fizazi K et al. GUCS 2019, Abstract 140

Key clinical point: Darolutamide is efficacious and well tolerated when used to treat nonmetastatic, castration-resistant prostate cancer.

Major finding: Median metastasis-free survival was 40.4 months with darolutamide versus 18.4 months with placebo (hazard ratio, 0.41; P less than .0001).

Study details: A phase 3, randomized, controlled trial among 1,509 men with nonmetastatic, castration-resistant prostate cancer and a prostate-specific antigen doubling time of 10 months or less who continued on androgen deprivation therapy.
