Published: Wednesday, Mar 30, 2011

Robert Dreicer, MD from the Taussig Cancer Institute, explains that the survival benefits observed for abiraterone acetate (Zytiga) and sipuleucel-T (Provenge) are both in the range of 4 months. Additionally, post docetaxel the agent cabazitaxel also improves survival. Since all of these agents improve survival the questions becomes how do you use them, should you combine, and in which population.
