Updated overall survival results from PROSPER: A phase III, randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled study of enzalutamide (ENZA) in men with nmCRPC

Final overall survival (OS) from PROSPER: A phase III, randomized, double-blind, placebo (PBO)-controlled study of enzalutamide (ENZA) in men with nonmetastatic castrationresistant prostate cancer (nmCRPC)


Abstract Number : 5515

Abstract Type : Poster Discussion Session

Indication : Metastatic Castration Resistant Prostate Cancer

Intervention : Enzalutamide + ADT vs ADT

Company : Pfizer Inc. and Astellas Pharma

Technology : Small Molecule


Result:

As of Oct 15, 2019 (median follow-up » 48 mo), there were 466 deaths (288 [30.9%] and 178 [38.0%] in the ENZA and PBO arms, respectively). ENZA significantly prolonged OS compared with PBO (HR 0.73; 95% CI 0.61-0.89; P = .0011). Median OS was 67.0 mo (95% CI 64.0-not reached) in the ENZA arm and 56.3 mo (95% CI 54.4-63.0) in the PBO arm. Subsequent antineoplastic therapies were initiated after treatment discontinuation by 310 (33%) men in the ENZA arm vs 303 (65%) in the PBO arm. Median duration of treatment was 33.9 mo vs 14.2 mo with ENZA vs PBO, respectively. Grade $ 3 adverse events (AEs) were reported by 48% of men in the ENZA arm vs 27% in the PBO arm (16% vs 6% were drug related, respectively). AEs with event rates per 100 patient-yr that were $ 2 points higher with ENZA vs PBO were falls (9 vs 4), fatigue (14 vs 12), and hypertension (7 vs 5).


Conclusion:

ENZA treatment resulted in a statistically significant 27% reduced risk of death compared with PBO, demonstrating that initiation of ENZA + ADT before the onset of detectable metastasis improves OS in men with CRPC and rapidly rising PSA. This OS benefit ensues despite crossover from the PBO arm to ENZA and higher rates of subsequent antineoplastic therapies in men from the PBO arm. Safety was consistent with previous clinical trials. This final OS analysis from PROSPER provides prospective validation of MFS as a potential surrogate endpoint for OS in nmCRPC and supports the continued use of ENZA + ADT as a standard of care in men with nmCRPC and rapidly rising PSA.


Commentary:

Initiation of enzalutamide + ADT before the onset of detectable metastasis improves OS in men with CRPC and rapidly rising PSA and treatment resulted in a statistically significant 27% reduced risk of death compared with PBO.
