A Study of Apalutamide in Participants With High Risk Localized or Locally Advanced Prostate Cancer Who Are Candidates for Radical Prostatectomy


Brief description of study

The purpose of this study is to determine if treatment with androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) plus apalutamide before and after radical prostatectomy in participants with high-risk localized or locally advanced prostate cancer results in an improvement in pathological complete response (pCR) rate and metastasis-free survival (MFS), as compared to ADT plus placebo.

Detailed Study Description

High-risk prostate cancer accounts for approximately 15 percent (%) of newly diagnosed prostate cancers. A systemic therapy that eradicates micrometastatic disease is needed to improve survival in high-risk participants undergoing radical prostatectomy. It is hypothesized that androgen blockade prior to and after radical prostatectomy may improve outcomes for participants at the highest risk for recurrence. This study is designed to evaluate if androgen blockade administered prior to and after radical prostatectomy will increase the rate of pathological complete response (pCR) and lead to better overall outcomes. ERLEADA (apalutamide, also known as JNJ-56021927 and ARN-509) is an orally available, non-steroidal small molecule, which acts as a potent and selective antagonist of the androgen receptor (AR), currently being developed for the treatment of prostate cancer. The study includes screening phase (approximately up to 35 days before randomization), treatment phase (up to 12 months) and follow-up phase. The end of study (study completion) is defined as last participant assessment at study site with approximate study duration of 8 years. Participants will undergo efficacy, pharmacokinetics and biomarker evaluations. The safety will be monitored throughout the study.
