STAMPEDE-ing Towards Androgen Biosynthesis Inhibition for Treatment of High-Risk Hormone-Naïve Prostate Cancer: Changing the LATITUDE.

Since Dr. Huggins' 1941 Nobel prize winning finding that androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) effectively controls metastatic prostate cancer (PCa), 70 years passed before CHAARTED [1] and STAMPEDE [2] demonstrated that adding docetaxel to ADT prolongs survival in men with metastatic PCa. The de novo metastatic PCa global incidence is striking: 3% in the US, 6% across Europe, 4-10% in Latin America, and 60% in Asia-Pacific [3]. Historically, ADT has been standard of care, however most men progress to metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC). This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
