ZYTIGA® improves survival without impacting Quality of Life in CRPC

In a recent article published in The Lancet Oncology,  ZYTIGA® (Abiraterone) given along with prednisone delayed patient-reported pain progression and deterioration of Quality of Life in chemotherapy-naive patients with metastatic Castrate Resistant Prostate Cancer (CRPC). This was accomplished  without compromising efficacy, which was survival benefit. This is relevant because, patients with Prostate Cancer in general are elderly and it is important that any treatment intervention in this patient population with asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic CRPC improves overall survival without negatively impacting Quality of Life.
