Management of advanced/metastatic disease

Text update

Two phase III trials have compared ADT alone versus ADT plus abiraterone and prednisolone in men with metastatic, hormone-naive disease.  The LATITUDE trial included men with high risk metastatic disease.  Based on 406 events, abiraterone/prednisone improved overall survival (HR: 0.62, 95% CI: 0.51-0.76) [1].  The STAMPEDE trial included men with metastatic and non-metastatic disease.  Based on 446 events, abiraterone/prednisone improved overall survival (HR: 0.63, 95% CI: 0.52-0.76) [2].


  • ADT plus abiraterone/prednisone may be considered as first-line treatment for metastatic, hormone-naive disease [I, A].
