STAMPEDE Trial Further Results - Adding Radiotherapy Can Benefit Some Patients Whose Prostate Cancer Has Spread
STAMPEDE Five Year Follow-up Results
A five year follow-up of the STAMPEDE abiraterone comparison has been completed, and the results demonstrate that previously reported effects are robust. It shows that future results are unlikely to change meaningfully with further follow-up. The initial results of the STAMPEDE advanced prostate cancer trial showed that progression-free survival is improved when abiraterone acetate and prednisone (AAP) are added to androgen deprivation therapy.
