Enzalutamide is a potent direct inhibitor of the androgen receptor (AR), with established benefit in castration-resistant prostate cancer. ENZAMET randomly assigned 1,125 men with mHSPC to either testosterone suppression and other NSAAs, including bicalutamide, nilutamide, or flutamide (562 patients), or testosterone suppression and enzalutamide (563 patients). On May 31, results of the TITAN study (Abstract 5006) were presented, showing that the addition of another AR inhibitor, apalutamide, can significantly improve survival when added to androgen-deprivation therapy; this was regardless of pri...
