Abstract 2438


The E3805: CHAARTED trial noted that the addition of D to ADT was associated with a hazard ratio (HR) of 0.56 (95% confidence interval [CI], 0.44 to 0.70; P 


A cohort of mCRPC patients (pts) treated with pCRx AA or E for mCRPC between 2014 and 2017 was identified from three hospitals’ IRB approved databases. Patients were grouped by use of D for mHSPC. This time frame was chosen as ADT+D became a valid therapeutic option for mHSPC in 2014 and thus time to pCRx and follow-up were short. The endpoints included OS (time to death from all causes) from ADT start, time to AA/E start from ADT start, and OS from AA/E start. Survival outcomes were analyzed by Kaplan-Meier method.


Of the 102 identified, 50 (49%) had previously received ADT alone, while 52 (51%) had ADT+D. No statistically significant difference in OS from ADT start or from AA/E start was observed between the 2 cohorts (Table 1). Notably, survival in both groups from ADT start was shorter than commonly reported. Yet, deaths in the ADT+D group were 12 vs. 21 in the ADT alone, after a median follow-up of 24.4 and 29.8 months, respectively.


In a cohort of ADT/ADT+D treated mCRPC pts with short times to pCRx AA/E and follow-up, the efficacy of AA/E is similar regardless of previous use of D. It is possible that the pts selected for ADT+D had poorer prognostic factors and yet still did at least as well with AA/E and deaths were lesser. Larger sample sizes, longer follow-up, and better characterization of patient and tumor factors are needed to assess the efficacy of different sequences.Table:
