A Randomized Phase III Study Comparing Cabazitaxel/Prednisone in Combination with Custirsen (OGX-011) to Cabazitaxel/Prednisone for Second-Line Chemotherapy in Men with Metastatic Castrate Resistant Prostate Cancer

Conditions

Prostate

Trial Phase

Phase III

Trial Purpose and Description

Trial Purpose

This Phase III study has been designed to confirm that adding custirsen ;to cabazitaxel/prednisone treatment can slow tumor progression and enhance survival outcomes compared to standard cabazitaxel/prednisone treatment in men with metastatic castrate resistant prostate cancer (CRPC). This will be a randomized, open-label, multicenter, international trial. Treatment will consist of cabazitaxel/prednisone/custirsen ;vs. cabazitaxel/prednisone.
