Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants With Prostate Cancer (PCa) Progression [Restricted Crude Rate Analysis: Number of Participants With PCa Divided by Number of Participants in the Intent-to-Treat (ITT) Population Who Had >=1 Post-baseline Biopsy or Had a Progression [ Time Frame: Year 1.5 and Overall (Years 0-3) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    PC progression (prog.) was defined as the earliest occurrence of primary therapy, also referred to as therapeutic prog., for PC (prostatectomy/radiation/hormonal therapy); or pathological prog., defined as 1 of the following: >=4 cores involved; >=50% of any 1 core involved; or a Gleason pattern of >=4 as a result of any on-study/for-cause biopsy. Primary Gleason grade is assigned to the most common tumor pattern; a second grade to the next most common tumor pattern. The two grades are added together to get a score. Gleason grade= 1-5; Gleason score=2-10; 5 and 10 indicate worst prognosis.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants With Therapeutic Progression [ Time Frame: Year 1.5 and Overall (Years 0-3) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Primary therapy, also referred to as therapeutic progression, for prostate cancer can be one of the following: prostatectomy, radiation, or hormonal therapy.

  • Number of Participants With Pathologic Progression [ Time Frame: Year 1.5 and Overall (Years 0-3) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Pathological progression is defined as one of the following: >=4 cores involved; >=50% of any 1 core involved; or a Gleason pattern of >=4 as a result of any on-study/for-cause biopsy. The 2005 International Society of Urological Pathologists recommendations for Gleason scoring (GS) were used to grade tumors. A primary grade is assigned to the most common tumor pattern, and a second grade to the next most common tumor pattern. The two grades are added together to get a GS. The Gleason grade=1-5, with 5 having the worst prognosis. The Gleason score=2-10, with 10 having the worst prognosis.

  • Participants With at Least One Post-baseline Biopsy With the Indicated Prostate Cancer (PCa) Diagnosis [ Time Frame: Baseline to Month 18 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    All participants were required by protocol to undergo a transrectal ultrasound (TRUS)-guided 12-core prostate biopsy at 1.5 and 3 years or at the end of the study, if the participant discontinued the study early. Any for-cause biopsy (outside of protocol-mandated biopsies) 12 cores were obtained. If a for-cause biopsy occurred within 6 months prior to the protocol-mandated biopsy, the biopsy was counted as the protocol-mandated biopsy. All biopsies were reviewed and analyzed by a central pathologist.

Any for-cause biopsy (outside of protocol-mandated biopsies) 12 cores were obtained. If a for-cause biopsy occurred within 6 months prior to the protocol-mandated biopsy, the biopsy was counted as the protocol-mandated biopsy. The final biopsy is defined as the latest post-baseline biopsy for which the results are available from the central pathology laboratory.

    The 2005 International Society of Urological Pathologists recommendations for Gleason scoring were used to grade tumors. A primary grade is assigned to the most common tumor pattern (how the cancer cells look under a microscope), and a second grade to the next most common pattern. The two grades are added together to get a GS. Gleason grade range= 1-5; 5=worst prognosis. GS range=2-10; 10=worst prognosis. Improvement is defined as a decrease in GS from a baseline score of 6 (GS<=6; includes no cancer); worsening is defined as an increase in GS from a baseline score of 6 (GS >6).

    All on-study or for-cause biopsies were reviewed and analyzed by a central pathologist. The 2005 International Society of Urological Pathologists recommendations for Gleason scoring were used to grade the tumor. A primary grade is assigned to the most common tumor pattern (how the cancer cells look under a microscope), and a secondary grade to the next most common tumor pattern. The two grades are added together to get a GS. The Gleason grade ranges from 1 to 5, with 5 having the worst prognosis. The Gleason score ranges from 2 to 10, with 10 having the worst prognosis.

  • Number of Biopsies With the Indicated Clinical Tumor Stage at Baseline [ Time Frame: Baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    All on-study or for-cause biopsies were reviewed and analyzed by a central pathologist. The 2005 International Society of Urological Pathologists recommendations for clinical tumor staging were used. T1c = tumor identified by needle biopsy (e.g., because of elevated prostate-specific antigen [PSA]); T2 = tumor confined within the prostate; T2a = tumor involves one-half of one lobe, but not both lobes of the prostate.

  • Number of Post-baseline Biopsies With the Indicated Change From Baseline in Clinical Stage [ Time Frame: Months 0-18 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    All on-study or for-cause biopsies were reviewed and analyzed by a central pathologist. The National Comprehensive Network (NCCN), 2005 clinical practices guidelines in Oncology-prostate cancer were used for clinical tumor staging. T0: no evidence of primary tumor; T1: clinically inapparent tumor, neither palpable nor visible by imaging; T2: tumor confined within the prostate; T3: tumor extends through the prostate capsule; T4: tumor is fixed or invades adjacent structures other than seminal vesicles. A clinical stage of T0 in post-baseline biopsies has been interpreted as "No Worsening."
