Dr Christopher Sweeney - Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Boston, USA

Dr Christopher Sweeney talks to ecancer at the 2019 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting about results from the ENZAMET trial looking at the use of enzalutamide as treatment for men with mHSPC who have received testosterone suppression.

He explains that enzalutamide is known to prolong the survival of men with castration resistant disease so the purpose of this trial was to study its success in the hormone sensitive setting.

Dr Sweeney reports that patients randomly received either enzalutamide or placebo with testosterone suppression and that after 3 years the overall survival rates were 80% with enzalutamide compared with 72% for placebo.
