Prospective Study of Low-Dose Abiraterone with Food Versus Standard Dose Abiraterone in mCRPC - Russell Szmulewitz

(Length of Discussion: 21 min)

Russell Szmulewitz talks with Alicia Morgans about a trial that evaluated abiraterone with food and how that might affect relative patient outcomes, such as PSA.  This study sought to test the hypothesis that low-dose Abiraterone acetate (AA) (LOW; 250 mg with a low-fat meal) would have comparable activity to standard dosed AA (STD; 1,000 mg fasting) in patients with mCRPC.  The investigators hypothesized that the results would not be inferior to standard AA on a fasting regime and would be similar in changes of PSA.
