Japanese Research for Patients With Non-metastatic Castration Resistant Prostate Cancer - Enzalutamide

Basic Information

Recruitment status Complete
Health condition(s) or Problem(s) studiedProstate Cancer
Date of first enrollment13/01/2016
Target sample size60
Countries of recruitmentN,Japan,A,Japan
Study typeInterventional
Intervention(s)All patients will receive enzalutamide 160 mg (four 40 mg capsules) orally once daily. The treatment will be started at Visit 0 within one week after enrollment. Visit 1 is at 2 weeks after the treatment started; clinical assessments are conducted on adverse events and the Japanese version of the Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy-Prostate (FACT-P) scales. Patients who are considered to be adequate by the investigator can continue the treatment with 12-week cycle visit (counted from initial dose) until patients meet withdrawal criteria. Patients will be followed up at 2 and 3 years after enrollment and at 3 years after the last participant enrollment.


Primary OutcomeProstate specific antigen (PSA) progression-free survival is defined as time from date of initial dose until the date of first confirmed PSA progression (an increase in PSA of >= 25% and >= 2 ng/ml above the nadir after initial dose) or date of death from any cause, whichever comes first.
Secondary Outcome1.Overall survival (OS) 2.Progression-free survival (PFS) 3.Metastasis free survival (MFS) 4.Time-to-PSA-progression (TTPP) 5.PSA response rate 6.Time to first use of chemotherapy (TFC) 7.QOL assessment using Japanese version of the FACT-P scales 8.Medication adherence (dosage) 9.Medication adherence (duration) 10.Medication adherence (ratio) 11.Incidence of adverse events
