The FDA has approved enzalutamide (Xtandi) for the treatment of patients with nonmetastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC), according to Pfizer and Astellas, the codevelopers of the antiandrogen agent.

The FDA initially approved enzalutamide in 2012 as a treatment for men with metastatic CRPC following docetaxel. This approval was expanded in 2014 to include treatment with the antiandrogen agent prior to chemotherapy.
