Abstract 2749


Optimal sequencing of new androgen-receptor targeted agents (ART) abiraterone and enzalutamide with docetaxel (D) and cabazitaxel (C) is unknown. In this large retrospective cohort of mCRPC patients, we evaluated the impact of 3 different sequences: D -> C-> ART (group 1), or D -> ART -> C (group 2), or ART -> D -> C (group 3)


Records of 560 consecutive mCRPC patients were retrospectively collected in 31 centres in 7 European countries from Jan 2011 to Jan 2016. Disease history and clinical characteristics at initiation of each therapy were collected. PSA response ≥ 50%, radiological or clinical progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS) with each treatment sequence were evaluated.


At sequence initiation, patient characteristics were similar between the 3 sequences: median age was 67 years, 95% were ECOG 0-1, 59% had high disease volume, 42.6% had pain and 8% had visceral metastases. Median number of D cycles was 6 in the 3 groups. Median numbers of C cycles were 7, 6 and 5 in groups 1, 2 and 3 respectively. Median duration of follow-up was 33.7, 31.1, and 23.7 months in groups 1, 2 and 3. Main results are provided in the table.

Sequence PSA response ≥50% / Radiological or clinical PFS* OS from Treatment 1*
Treatment 1 Treatment 2 Treatment 3
D- > C- > ART (n = 129) 61% / 11.5 61% / 11.0 37% / 12.4 37.3 [32.4; 45.2]
D- > ART- > C (n = 390) 63% / 11.9 39% / 9.0 38% / 11.3 36.0 [33.4; 39.7]
ART- > D- > C (n = 41) 60% / 7.4 42% / 6.9 31% / 8.9 30.1 [24.3; 52.7]
p value 0.92 /


PSA responses were generally similar for each treatment line in the 3 groups. No significant difference in OS was observed between the 3 sequences in this retrospective cohort. D showed a longer radiological or clinical PFS when given in first line. The activity of C was not influenced by ART. Sequencing should be based on individual disease characteristics and patients' status and preference.
