Comparing the survival outcomes of pembrolizumab with or without enzalutamide in men with previously untreated metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer.
In a nutshell This study compared the survival and safety outcomes of pembrolizumab (Keytruda; PEM) plus enzalutamide (Xtandi; ENZ) combination versus pembrolizumab alone in patients with previously untreated metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC). The data showed that PEM plus ENZ combination was associated with increased survival...Read More
In a nutshell The study compared patient-reported outcomes (PRO) in patients receiving continuous androgen deprivation therapy (CADT) vs intermittent androgen deprivation therapy (IADT) for locally advanced prostate cancer (PCa).

Does giving radiotherapy to metastatic sites and the prostate tumor improve the outcomes of patients with prostate cancer and few metastases?
In a nutshell This study aims to evaluate if giving radiotherapy to both the areas the tumor has spread (metastases), along with the prostate tumor, will improve the survival of patients with prostate cancer (PC) and few metastases (oligometastatic disease). This study suggested that this treatment could benefit patients with PC and few...Read More
In a nutshell The study compared the quality of life (QoL) of patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) treated with cabazitaxel (Jevtana) compared to abiraterone (Zytiga) or enzalutamide (Xtandi). The authors found that cabazitaxel did not reduce QoL in such patients. Some background Patients with mCRPC...Read More
