Kim Chi, MD, associate director of clinical research, Vancouver Prostate Centre, professor, Department of Medicine, University of British Columbia, discusses the LATITUDE study in metastatic prostate cancer.

This was a randomized phase III, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial that enrolled approximately 1200 men with hormone-naïve metastatic prostate cancer. Patients were randomized to receive either standard therapy with androgen-deprivation therapy (ADT) with placebo versus ADT with abiraterone acetate (Zytiga) and prednisone at 5 mg per day.

Results showed an overall survival advantage in patients who received ADT plus abiraterone acetate and prednisone, says Chi.
