Dr. Shore on the TERRAIN Trial for Prostate Cancer

Neal D. Shore, MD
Published: Wednesday, May 20, 2015



Neal D. Shore, MD, FACS, medical director, Carolina Urologic Research Center, managing partner, Atlantic Urology Clinics, discusses the results of the TERRAIN trial.

The TERRAIN trial was a prospective, double-blind study randomizing patients to enzalutamide or bicalutamide. Patients were included who had asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC), Shore explains.

A 10-month radiographic progression-free survival benefit was seen in patients treated with enzalutamide versus bicalutamide. Patients in the enzalutamide arm also saw a decline in prostate-specific antigen levels.

The phase II study, which enrolled 375 patients, demonstrated the advantages of treatment with enzalutamide compared with bicalutamide, Shore says.
