Kim Chi, MD, associate director of clinical research, Vancouver Prostate Centre, professor, Department of Medicine, University of British Columbia, discusses combinations with androgen deprivation therapy for patients with prostate cancer.

Combining androgen depravation therapy with chemotherapy with abiraterone (Zytiga) is still an unanswered question that needs to be investigated, explains Chi. There have been some trials that have just finished accrual, such as the TITAN trial and the ENZAMET trial that have begun investigating this combination.

According to Chi, it might be possible to receive a better idea of which therapy is most beneficial for patients for patients with prostate cancer by looking at these subgroup analyses.
