Abstract 3600


Ra223 is a life-prolonging alpha-emitter bone targeted therapy for mCRPC patients with bone metastases. However, evidence on biomarkers that may help us in patient selection are lacking. Total ALP (tALP) appeared to be a potential marker of Ra223 effect in early studies (Sartor, Ann Oncol, 2017). Other bone-related markers, as bone-specific ALP (BALP), have demonstrated its prognostic value in mCRPC patients with bone metastases (Fizazi K, Eur Urol, 2015; Lara PN, J Natl Cancer Inst, 2014).


PRORADIUM (NCT022925702) is a prospective multicentre cohort study in mCRPC patients treated with Ra223. The primary aim was to assess the impact of baseline serum biomarkers of bone formation (BALP and C-terminal of type 1 collagen propeptide [CICP]) on overall survival (OS). Secondary aims include the correlation of progression-free survival (PFS), time to PSA progression (TTPP) and skeletal-related events free-survival (SRE-FS) with serum bone markers.


142 out of 168 pts enrolled in the study were included in this preliminary analysis. Median age was 74 yrs, 85.5% pts had ECOG 0-1, 52% pts completed 5-6 cycles of Ra223. Higher baseline levels of BALP and CICP were associated to number of metastases in bone-scan (p = 0.007 and p = 0.016, respectively) and baseline pain (p = 0.014 and p = 0.050, respectively). After a median follow-up of 18 months, 91 deaths were observed, with a median OS of 11.5 months (95%CI: 9.1-13.9). Patients with baseline BALP and CICP values above the median showed a trend to shorter TTPP (BALP: 2.8 vs 3.1 m, p = 0.016; CICP: 2.8 vs 3.0 m, p = 0.091) and PFS (BALP: 4.4 vs 5.1 m, p = 0.070; CICP: 4.2 vs 5.5 m, p = 0.281), respectively. The elevation of bone markers above the median was significantly associated with worse OS (BALP: 8.8 vs 17.9 m, p < 0.001; CICP: 9.4 vs 16.8 m, p = 0.001). There were not associations found with SRE-FS.


Our results suggest that baseline serum markers of bone formation may serve as biomarkers for prognosis in mCRPC patients treated with Ra233.
