Study on Olaparib Plus Abiraterone as First-line Therapy in Men With Metastatic Castration-resistant Prostate Cancer


Brief description of study

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety (including evaluating side effects) of combination of olaparib and abiraterone versus placebo and abiraterone in patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) who have received no prior cytotoxic chemotherapy or new hormonal agents (NHAs) at metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) stage.

Detailed Study Description

PROpel is a phase III study evaluating the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of olaparib versus placebo when given in addition to abiraterone to patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) who have not received prior chemotherapy or new hormonal agents (NHAs) for metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) (first-line setting).

Approximately 720 patients globally will be randomized in PROpel in a 1:1 ratio to treatment with either olaparib and abiraterone or placebo and abiraterone. Patients will receive oral treatment with olaparib 300 mg twice daily + abiraterone 1000 mg once daily or placebo twice daily + abiraterone 1000 mg once daily. Patients in both treatment groups will also receive either prednisone or prednisolone 5 mg twice daily.
