Epoch making development of new drugs for prostate cancer - Abstract

Prostate cancer responds well to androgen depletion therapy(ADT).

However, when ADT was initiated on advanced prostate cancer, many become Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer(CRPC)within a few years. Thus, development of new agents against CRPC is warranted. At the 2012 ASCO Meeting, results from two global randomized trials were given a warm reception. One trial involved abiraterone acetate and the other MDV3100.
