First presentation of SPARTAN - a phase 3 double-blind, randomized study of apalutamide (APA) versus placebo in patients with nonmetastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (nmCRPC) - Eric Small

(Length of Presentation: 23 min)

The first presentation of a phase 3 double-blind, randomized study of apalutamide (APA) versus placebo (PBO) in patients (pts) with nonmetastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (nmCRPC), called SPARTAN is provided here.  Eric Small presents the SPARTAN trial first data analysis including the background, methods, primary end points, time to metastasis, progression-free survival, time to symptomatic progression, and overall survival.  He concludes with adverse events, and treatment associated adverse events before detailing the findings from the study which were much anticipated in the field of nmCRPC.  Here we see and hear the data that provides the basis for earlier treatment of patients with non-metastatic (M0) CRPC.
