NAs in third line mCRPC treatment

Francesca Maines, Orazio Caffo, Antonello Veccia, Chiara Trentin, Giampaolo Tortora, Enzo Galligioni, Emilio Bria
BACKGROUND: Two new hormonal agents (NHAs), abiraterone and enzalutamide, and one chemotherapeutic agent, cabazitaxel (CABA) improved overall survival (OS) in patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) who progress after docetaxel. Although several analyses of patient cohorts receiving a sequence of two different new agents (NAs) after docetaxel have been published, no definite conclusions can be drawn regarding the best treatment strategy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: All published studies reporting monthly OS rates of mCRPC patients receiving third-line NA after having previously received docetaxel and another NA have been analyzed...

BACKGROUND: The availability of new agents (NAs) active in patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) progressing after docetaxel treatment (abiraterone acetate, cabazitaxel, and enzalutamide) has led to the possibility of using them sequentially to obtain a cumulative survival benefit. OBJECTIVE: To provide clinical outcome data relating to a large cohort of mCRPC patients who received a third-line NA after the failure of docetaxel and another NA...
