San Francisco, CA USA ( -- Astellas Pharma Inc. and Pfizer Inc. announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has accepted for review the filing of a supplemental New Drug Application (sNDA) for XTANDI®(enzalutamide) to add an indication for the treatment of men with metastatic hormone-sensitive prostate cancer (mHSPC).
BACKGROUND: Enzalutamide, an androgen-receptor inhibitor, has been associated with improved overall survival in men with castration-resistant prostate cancer. It is not known whether adding enzalutamide to testosterone suppression, with or without early docetaxel, will improve survival in men with metastatic, hormone-sensitive prostate cancer.
